The new Mate RSphone by Huawei, of its Porsche Design series, has plenty of unique features and "firsts" to brag with, besides the price (it is the first to crack the 2000 Euro barrier on the upside).
The Kirin 970 is a 10nm, eight-core chip, with four 2.36GHz Cortex A73 cores and four 1.8GHz Cortex A53 cores providing CPU power. The Huawei Mate RS comes at a starting price of Euro 1695 for 6GB RAM and 256GB storage. There's a 20MP monochrome sensor separated from the other two sensors with f/1.6 aperture. The dual-camera setup has laser and phase-detection autofocus, and it is aided by dual-tone dual-LED flash. The RGB and the Monochrome sensors don't have OIS in the literal sense but come with something called as AIS or AI-enabled stabilisation. The primary camera can record 4K/30FPS videos, while the 24MP secondary camera can record Full HD videos.
Clear attempts to rival those market leaders are in place in the P20, with Huawei having introduced a super-slow-motion video feature - also a key component of Samsung's flagship Galaxy S9 which went on sale earlier this month.
The phone comes with Wi-Fi 2.4 G, 802.11a/b/g/n/ac with Wi-Fi Direct support, Bluetooth 4.2 and USB Type-C connectivity options.
The Huawei P20 Pro is the beefed-up version of the Huawei P20. It sports a curved 6-inch 2K OLED display. That is paired with a 767MHz Mali-G72 MP12 GPU, 6GB of RAM, a generous 128GB of storage, and a 4000mAh battery in the P20 Pro.

U.S. and China clash at United Nations rights forum on Beijing text
The tensions reflect the dueling nationalistic ambitions of Trump and his Chinese counterpart, Xi Jinping. Ever since his presidential campaign he has threatened to pull the USA out of the body.
As mentioned above, the Huawei P20 Pro innovates in a number of ways - and another one of those innovations is with the camera.
Huawei has also improved its built-in AI system for the camera, which recognises objects and scenes, pre-selecting the best of 19 modes for the subject. The first camera has a 40MP resolution, the second camera sensor has a 12MP resolution, and the third camera sensor has an 8MP resolution. The P20 Pro's triple camera setup is the biggest innovation we have seen in mobile imaging for quite some time and is a real game changer. The P20 Pro doesn't support wireless charging, but just 30 minutes charge will restore 58% battery life. There is another fingerprint scanner underneath the display. We've compiled a list of Huawei P20 Pro specifications to help you get a sense of what's in store when the phone releases in the next few days.
The P20 Pro has "the world's most powerful zoom on a smartphone, 3x optical zoom, 5x hybrid zoom and 10X digital zoom".
Its 6.1-inch Oled screen is near bezel-less, but with a notch at the top for the front camera like the Apple iPhone X. Users can hide the notch by toggling an option in the settings to add a black bar. The device is powered by Kirin 659 SoC, which is a mid-range chipset from Huawei's HiSilicon department.
