According to Huawei, the Mate 20 Pro has surpassed the pre-order record in Western Europe – formerly with the P20 Pro – by 40%. Huawei did not say exactly how many pre-orders it has received for its latest flagship, but it clearly indicates a large interest in Huawei by Western Europeans.
Chinese in Europe
Unlike other Chinese manufacturers such as Xiaomi and OPPO, Huawei has been known for years in Europe. Huawei not only sells many of its products in Europe, but the company also focuses on the continent because it aims to be at the forefront of the continuous development of 5G technology.
One reason for a large number of pre-orders of Mate 20 Pros is the pre-order promotions where the phone was bundled with a wireless charger and the Huawei Watch GT. Those promotions have made the four-digit price tag of the Mate 20 Pro more acceptable. Although the Mate 20 Pro is clearly the most sought-after phone on the market even without the pre-order promotions.
Huawei Mate 20 Pro Specifications
The latest flagship of Huawei has a curved AMOLED display panel of 6.39 inches with a resolution of 3,120 x 1,440 pixels. Furthermore, Huawei has its own Kirin 980 processor, 6GB or 8GB RAM, an expandable storage of 128GB or 256GB. The rest of the specs include an under-the-display fingerprint sensor and a very large 4,200 mAh battery that supports the new 40W Supercharge standard from Huawei. The Mate 20 Pro also has three cameras at the back, having one wide-angle camera, a telephoto lens, and a 40 MP main sensor.
With the large increase in the number of pre-orders compared to Huawei’s previous top model, it is of course very interesting to see if they will surprise us next year.
