So, the Mate 20 Pro can double up as a charging pad and come in handy when a friend or family member doesn’t have a power bank or doesn’t have access to a power brick and a charging outlet.
Huawei is aggressively pursuing the number one spot in the smartphone space, after surpassing Apple to become the second-largest smartphone maker in the world recently. With the launch of the Mate 20 flagship phones, the Chinese manufacturer seems one step closer to achieving its goal.
