Heating up the competition in India’s premium smartphone market, Chinese giant Huawei on Tuesday launched its flagship Mate 20 Pro device in the country for Rs 69,990.

This is the first time a premium Mate series device has made it to India.

The device will be available online on Amazon starting December 3 for Prime members while regular customers would be able to purchase it starting December 4, Huawei Consumer Business Group said.

Huawei Mate 20 Pro supports 3D Face Unlock and in-display fingerprint sensor, which is fast becoming a rage in the industry.

The Mate 20 Pro is powered by Kirin 980 — Huawei’s highest performing system on chip (SoC).

“We are excited to launch the most powerful and intelligent Mate ever — Mate 20 Pro for the Indian customers. India is a key market for us and it is our constant endeavor to create value for our Indian customers, offering the most innovative smartphone technology,” Wally Yang, Senior Product Marketing Director, Huawei Consumer Business Group, told reporters here.

The smartphone comes with the world’s first 40W HUAWEI Super Charger that can charge the device’s hefty 4,200 mAh battery to 70 per cent within 30 minutes of plugging in.

The device comes with key contributions from the Huawei India R&D team, thus, allowing for several localised capabilities.

The Matrix Camera System includes Leica ultra-wide angle lens that allows users to capture wider and closer photos with its new macro distance capability.
