Consumers will be able to pre-order their Mate 20 Pro today, with selected carriers offering a special gift – a HUAWEI WATCH 2 or a HUAWEI MediaPad T3 10 tablet – for a limited time.

Powered by the world’s first 7nm Mobile Artificial Intelligence (AI) chipset Kirin 980, the HUAWEI Mate 20 Pro will be available in Black and Twilight.

  • TELUS
  • Videotron

  • The HUAWEI Mate 20 Pro is powered by a massive 4200mAh battery1. The new flagship supports the TÜV Safety Certified 40W HUAWEI SuperCharge. That means you can charge your HUAWEI Mate 20 Pro quickly and safely. The fast-charging technology can charge the HUAWEI Mate 20 Pro to up to 70 percent (or 2940mAh) in 30 minutes.

    Another Canadian first, the HUAWEI Mate 20 Pro features a snappy In-Screen Fingerprint Sensor. It works just like the way you expect it to – place your finger on the on-screen prompt for authentication. Once it has done its job, the prompt disappears into the background, as quickly as you lift your finger.
