What takes the cake is the all-new Leica Triple Camera system which features an Ultra Wide Angle Lens, Wide Angle Lens and Telephoto Lens as well as a Dual Tone Flash.

Mr. Aeron Chang, age 34, and his wife, Mrs. Shijia Chang who are both familiar with the brand, have decided to upgrade their smartphones to the HUAWEI Mate 20 Pro at the launch today. “I have used the Mate 10 last year and felt that the battery performance was really good. I have been following the news and updates about the new Mate 20 Pro and was very interested to experience it for myself, especially with the new Ultra Wide Angle Lens.”
