The Huawei Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro Smartphones Have Officially Been Unveiled in Kenya

Huawei Mate 20 Pro Kenya

Earlier today, Huawei introduced its latest flagship phablets, the Huawei Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro in Kenya. These two phones were unveiled to a global audience late last year and they have finally made their way to Kenya. The Mate 20 Pro is the one that stands out for me and will be available in Kenya for Ksh 99,999. The standard Mate 20 will be available for Ksh 75,000.

I don’t know about you but these prices are reasonable compared to what is available on the market. The Mate 20 pro for starters is available at the same price as the Galaxy Note 9. If I were to choose, I would go with the Mate 20 Pro over the Galaxy Note 9. They are both really good but the Mate just has an edge over the Note in my opinion.

The Huawei Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro are the first smartphones from the company to come with the company’s new Kirin 980 processor. This is the world’s first 7nm SoC (System on Chip). Compared with the previous one, the Kirin 970, the company says this new one promises better performance for both light and heavy tasks.

Speaking during the launch, Steven Li, Head of Eastern Africa Mobile said, “Consumer expectations are rising and in the race to bring the best Android smartphone to market, 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. Powered by its own in-house designed Kirin 980 AI chip, this advanced chip is fabricated with leading 7nm process technology, packing 6.9 billion transistors into a form factor the size of a fingernail.”
