While we’ve yet to see how these devices perform side-by-side, they’re all equipped with the newest flagship chipsets in the market, making each device powerful and extremely capable.

All three devices offer various RAM and storage configurations. The Mi 10 Pro comes with either 8GB or 12GB LPDDR5 RAM, paired with 256GB or 512GB UFS 3.0 storage with Write Turbo, while the Huawei Mate 30 Pro 5G only has one offering at 8GB RAM and 256GB UFS storage.

The S20 Ultra also has a 108MP main snapper, alongside a 12MP ultra-wide + 48MP telephoto + depth vision camera. In contrast to those high-resolution main shooters, the Mate 30 Pro 5G has a 40MP Cine Camera primary lens, together with a 40MP SuperSensing camera + 8MP telephoto + 3D depth sensing snappers. Impressively, the Mi 10 Pro and S20 Ultra can shoot videos up to 8K, while the Mate 30 Pro 5G is capable of shooting at 4K HDR+/4K 60 fps.

Interestingly enough, the Mi 10 Pro and the S20 Ultra have their front cameras housed inside a hole-punch module, while the Mate 30 Pro 5G has its cameras inside a bar notch. The Mi 10 Pro comes with a 20MP front camera, the S20 Ultra has a 40MP one, while the Mate 30 Pro 5G employs a 3D depth + 32MP dual setup.

Despite the numerous differences between the three smartphones, they also share a few things in common. For one, they all have a USB Type-C port. Secondly, all of them have Android 10 as their operating system, although they do differ in their UI skin.

Huawei recently made the Mate 30 Pro 5G available for purchase in the Philippines, while the Galaxy S20 Ultra can be availed in stores by March. As for the Mi 10 Pro, the device just had its launch in China, but it’ll surely make its way to the Philippines, just like its predecessors.

Out of the three devices, the Galaxy S20 Ultra comes with the highest price tag (locally). Even with that, you get an almost 7-inch display, extensive expandable storage, and enormous battery capacity all packed into a highly capable device.

Price-wise, the Huawei Mate 30 Pro 5G gets sandwiched between the Mi 10 Pro and the S20 Ultra. While it can’t match up to the high-resolution cameras and large RAMs — and well, it’s lack of Google services — on paper, it’s still a competent flagship device worth considering because of its decent display, powerful chipset, and impressive set of cameras. After all, the device does come second to the Mi 10 Pro in DxoMark’s smartphone camera rankings.

While the Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro doesn’t have a local price nor launch date yet, its converted prices make it the most affordable premium flagship between the three devices. With the Mi 10 Pro, one can get a display with a 90Hz refresh rate, a powerful chipset, insanely fast wired charging support, and — according to DxOMark’s smartphone camera rankings — an outstanding set of cameras. If you’ve been yearning for a flagship device but don’t want to absolutely break the bank, then the Mi 10 Pro might be worth waiting for.
