Chinese smartphone maker Huawei Technologies on Tuesday launched the anticipated Huawei Mate 20 Series to users in Kenya.

Steven Li, head of Huawei Eastern Africa Mobile, said during the launch in Nairobi that consumer expectations are on the rise, noting that Huawei is leading the rapid development of technologies that help improve device performance to satisfy those needs.

“The Huawei Mate 20 Pro offers consumers a compelling combination of high performance, longer battery life, advanced security, and a greater photography and videography experience through its Leica Ultra-Wide Angle Lens camera,” Li noted.

He said the device is powered by its own in-house designed Kirin 980 artificial intelligence (AI) chip, which is fabricated with leading 7nm process technology that packs 6.9 billion transistors into a form factor the size of a fingernail.

“The appliance is equipped with a 40MP main camera, a 20MP ultra wide-angle camera, and an 8MP telephoto camera. Together, the trio of lenses supports a wide range of focal lengths enabling it to mimic the results from professional cameras,” Li said.

He added that the wider perspective creates a sense of spaciousness and a three-dimensional effect to the images.

The gadget packs extraordinary features including the world’s first Leica ultra-wide-angle triple camera, reverse charging and other features in collaboration with diagnostic testing and condition monitoring.

The new camera system also supports macro distance, which produces crisp images of objects that are laces as closed as 2.5 cm from the lens and in addition also features an AI Portrait Color video mode.

The phone also features an in-screen fingerprint sensor to achieve better speed and success rates by pinpointing the location of a user’s finger on the screen, and removing the on-screen prompt immediately when a user removes their finger. Enditem
