Top Productivity Features of the Huawei Mate 20 Pro
Smartphones nowadays have become very powerful that they’re no longer just used for communication purposes. They have become our go-to device for photography, entertainment, and gaming. The Huawei Mate 20 Pro, has proven itself more than capable in handling all of those. So for this article, we’re going to explore what this flagship smartphone can offer when it comes to productivity.
Powerful Kirin 980 chipset
It’s hard to talk about the Mate 20 Pro’s productivity feature without mentioning the powerful engine running under the hood. What we’re talking about is the Kirin 980 which was manufactured using the 7nm process and packs a Cortex-A76-based CPU and Mali-G76 GPU. According to Huawei it can deliver 20% improved SoC performance and 40% improved SoC power efficiency, compared to the 10nm process. Also, it also has a dual-core NPU to handle its AI features. So if you think the Mate 10 Pro packs a punch, the Mate 20 Pro blows it out of the water.
Really fast modem
The Mate 20 Pro is one of the first smartphones to support the 4.5G LTE Cat. 21 standard for download speeds of up to 1.4Gbps. It also traveling the world’s fastest Wi-Fi connection speeds of up to 1,733Mbps — 2GB footage requires only 10 seconds to download. Let’s also not forget that the modem of the Kirin 980 is 5G-ready, which is good news as plenty of companies, including Huawei, are pushing for the next-generation mobile connectivity standard.
When it comes to navigation, it also supports dual-band (L1+L5) GPS positioning technology, while the AI GPS Satellite Selection technology enhances the positioning accuracy across a wide range of scenarios, even when skyscrapers or highway interchanges surround you.
The AI Translate feature has been around for a while now and was also present in the Mate 10 series. It’s a one-stop-shop app for translation as it can translate text input, voice, conversations across devices, even text in photos. We find it very handy especially when traveling, so we’re glad that it was retained in the Mate 20 Pro.
Productivity and security go hand in hand as you need to protect your device from unauthorized access. In the case of the Mate 20 Pro, it offers two biometric security features. One is the in-screen fingerprint scanner with Dynamic Pressure Sensing, while the other is the 3D Face Unlock that can project over 30,000 points for a fast and accurate scan of your face, even in dark environments.
Last year’s Mate 10 series was able to connect to an external monitor and display presentation once it’s connected to it via a cable. In the case of the Mate 20 Pro, it can project presentations, gaming or video immediately to a larger screen, wirelessly, as long as the display supports Miracast. You can even use the phone for calls and texts and it wouldn’t affect or interrupt the projection.
Large battery with reverse wireless charging
What’s the point of having a productivity smartphone if it doesn’t have enough juice to last a whole day. The Mate 20 Pro doesn’t have that problem thanks to the 4,200mAh battery. One of its coolest features is the reverse wireless charging capability, meaning it can wirelessly recharge other smartphones that support wireless charging, like the Galaxy S9, Note9, LG G7, iPhone X, Xs, and Xs Max.
SuperCharge and Wireless Charging
In the event that the Mate 20 Pro’s needs to be replenished, the 40W Huawei SuperCharger can charge the device up to 70% in just 30 minutes, which saves you time. But if you want convenient charging without the wires, the Mate 20 Pro also supports wireless charging via the 15W Huawei Wireless Quick Charge.
And that sums up the top productivity features of the Huawei Mate 20 Pro. If you’re a professional and looking for a smartphone that can keep up, this phone is definitely up to the task.
