“Fragrant Red and Comet Blue variants are expected to launch around the Chinese New Year on 2nd February”
Launched two months ago in London, the Huawei Mate 20 Pro has been one of the highlight Android flagships of the past year. It was lauded by one and all but sadly the smartphone is currently unavailable across all online stores. Plus there’s no news on whether or when Mate 20 Pro will get restocked. Now a new report has emerged on the internet, revealing two new upcoming colour options for the Huawei smartphone. Currently the Mate 20 Pro is available in Bright Black, Sapphire Blue, Cherry Pink, Emerald Green, and Auror colors. To top this, interested buyers in China (yes these will only be available in the home country as of now) will soon have two more options to choose from – Fragrant Red and Comet Blue. An official launch date is yet to be announced by the company.
The red version appeared on Weibo studded with celebratory graphic ornaments, suggesting it could debut around the Chinese New Year, scheduled to be held on 5th February. On the other hand the Comet Blue variant has only been seen in source codes. Huawei Mate 20 Pro is the company’s current flagship and comes with a 6.39-inch OLED display, 3D Face Recognition tech, triple cameras on the back, 4,200mAh battery with 40W fast-charging support, and is powered by the company’s HiSilicon Kirin 980 processor with dedicated Neural Processing Unit (NPU). It comes in 6GB and 8GB RAM options coupled with 64GB, 128GB or 256GB of on-board storage.
Huawei has used something called a Hyper Optical Pattern for the smartphone’s back, which is said to repel fingerprint marks and make the phone less slippery. Plus it is IP68 certified for dust and water resistance Android 9 Pie-based EMUI 9.0 out-of-the-box. There’s also an in-display fingerprint scanner on board. Mate 20 Pro starts at Rs 69,990 for the base variant in India.
