After waiting for more than a month, Huawei officially released four new series phones in London last night. This generation of product lines, Mate 20 Pro and the standard version of Mate20, the difference is not only the size, the rear three-shot “Porsche Eye” has become an important watershed. So, how does Huawei Mate 20 Pro compare to Samsung Galaxy Note9, one of the best Android phones of the year?
Below are the comparisons of the design, camera, performance, and battery of the two heavy models. First let us take a look at the configuration of the two phones, left for Huawei Mate 20 Pro, right for Samsung Galaxy Note9.
Specifically, the higher-end Mate20 Pro is equipped with a 40 megapixel, f/1.8 main camera, a 20 megapixel f/2.2 super wide-angle lens and an 8-megapixel f/2.4 aperture with a telephoto lens with optical image stabilization.

Another point of the Mate 20 Pro ahead of the Galaxy Note 9 is that its cameras are equipped with faster and more advanced AI technology. Specifically, the Mate 20 Pro uses a faster AI chip that not only recognizes contours but also identifies overall shapes and objects. For example, in a camera app, it recognizes a person’s outline and uses it to do some cool things, such as highlighting a person’s color in a video while setting the background to black and white. Huawei AI can also be used for real-time motion tracking so that Mate 20 Pro can recognize your toddler in the video and keep focusing on him. Galaxy Note9 lacks these features.
The Mate 20 Pro is the first Android phone to feature the next-generation 7-nanometer chip, while the Galaxy Note 9 uses the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chip, which uses 10-nanometer technology. More advanced chip technology means that your app loads faster, the phone runs more smoothly, and the interface responds faster to every click.
The battery capacity of the Mate 20 Pro is almost larger than any other phone. Specifically, the battery capacity of the Mate 20 Pro is 4200 mAh, which is greater than the 4000 mAh of the Galaxy Note9, which is much larger than most other models.
Although both the Huawei Mate 20 Pro and the Galaxy Note9 support fast charging, Huawei is really taking the technology to the next level, and its Super Charge charger can charge up to 40 watts. On the other hand, Samsung uses its own “adaptive fast charging” technology to support up to 25 watts of power. For wireless charging, the Mate 20 Pro has a charging rate of 15 watts, while Note 9 has a charging rate of 10 watts.
