HUAWEI Mate 20 Pro exceeds Canadian pre-order expectations

TORONTO, ON. - November 6, 2018 –HUAWEI Canada’s Consumer Business Group today announced that the HUAWEI Mate 20 Pro , available from all major Canadian carriers on Nov. 8, is shaping up to be the best-selling smartphone in the company’s Canadian history.

After being announced at a launch event in London, UK in mid-October, the Mate 20 Pro has earned rave reviews, driving pre-orders to levels more than 22 per cent above this year’s successful P20 Pro debut.

“Canadians are looking for the best performance and the most innovative features they can find in a smartphone and the Mate 20 Pro is satisfying all of their needs.” said Radek Krasny, Director of Marketing for HUAWEI Canada’s Consumer Business Group. “The vote of confidence we are seeing with Mate 20 pre-orders also reflects the positive experience Canadians have had with our P series smartphones. They know they are getting a great device with HUAWEI.”

“With its massive 4200mAh battery and its unique reverse-charging capabilities, in-screen fingerprint sensor and incredible Leica Triple Camera featuring an Ultra-Wide Angle lens, Canadians recognize HUAWEI has again upped the game in bringing leading-edge smartphone features to Canadian consumers”.

In addition to the battery and camera features, the Mate 20 also brings another first to Canada –Wireless Reverse Charge. The HUAWEI Mate 20 Pro will be the first phone in Canada that supports Wireless Reverse Charging, effectively enabling the phone to act as a power bank for other devices.

The HUAWEI Mate 20 Pro also features a quick recognition In-Screen Fingerprint Sensor that functions simply by placing 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.

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 in Canada.

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.

The HUAWEI Mate 20 Pro also supports 15W HUAWEI Quick Wireless Charge1. Simply place it on a HUAWEI Quick Wireless Charge dock to enjoy convenient charging at extreme speeds: a 30-minute charge gives the device 30 percent (1300mAh) battery.
