Once more the WiFi is too poor to get all these photos up.

So far

  • Interesting camera designs (inspired by Porsche?!)
  • IP rated
  • Wireless charging… with reverse wireless charging for topping up other devices (crowd applause)
  • 6 colours available including twilight
  • In-screen fingerprint reader
  • Tear-drop notch on the Mate 20, not so much on the pro.
  • 4300mAh battery in the Pro :heart_eyes:
  • 6.39" 2k+ display in the Pro, 6.53" FHD+ in the Mate 20
  • 24mp front selfie camera in the pro
  • A bunch of hardware in the notch for super quick face unlock

Leaving the cables behind theme continues. 1000 photos transferrable in 2 mins (where PC supports it…)
