Watch: Huawei Mate 20 Pro First Look

Earlier this year, Canalys reported that Huawei had overshadowed Apple in Q2 2018. Furthermore, the report says, that “currently, Huawei holds a global market share of 14.6 percent. More than 500 million people in more than 170 countries across the globe are using Huawei phones.” The company is aiming to boost its overall shipments to 250 million units by 2019.

The Mate 20 Pro is Huawei’s flagship device with top-of-the-line specifications, and some innovating features. The Nova 4, on the other hand, is the first device in the company’s portfolio to boast a punch-hole camera. In other words, the selfie camera is punched into the display itself, and there is no ugly notch at the top.
