Huawei Mate 20 vs Mate 20 Pro Size and Design Comparison

Huawei already announced the Huawei Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro. You can see how they compare in terms of size and design and also see how they compare in terms of notch sizes.

Huawei Mate 20 Pro vs Mate 20 size comparison

One of the main design differences between the two is obviously the notch at the top of the screen. Both the Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro are about the same height but the Mate 20 is wider. To be more precise, the Huawei Mate 20 is 6.3% wider (by 4.9mm), 0.3% (by 0.4mm) taller and 3.5% thinner (by 0.3mm) than the Huawei Mate 20 Pro.

Based on our notch size measurement, the Huawei Mate 20 Pro's notch width is approximately 50.6% of the screen size, while the Huawei Mate 20 notch is approximately 18.2% of the screen size.

When you look at the notch it seems less than that, but you need to keep in mind that we include the entire protruding part of the notch, notch just the tip. This image can illustrate it better.

Let's go over more statistics. Huawei Mate 20 Pro notch is 2.63 times (percentage increase: 162.6%) narrower (by 21.1mm) than the Huawei Mate 20 notch (in its maximum width, including all protruding areas). You can view these statistics yourself when you compare the two phones in our brand new notch size comparison tool here.

Both the Mate 20 Pro and the Mate 20 have small bezels, but they are not symmetrical. You can clearly see that the top and bottom (chin) bezels are thicker than the size bezels, and it's more prominent with the Mate 20 Pro because it has slimmer side bezels. The Mate 20 Pro comes with a 3D glass with smooth curves for a sleek streamlined design. This is why the slim side bezels. It's hard to view it from the front, but Huawei put an angular side view of the phone on the official product page and you can see that the screen curves and stretches more to the sides.

I personally think that both the Huawei Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro are beautiful phones. I really like the rear Lecia Vario-Summilux-H triple camera setup. The phone has a professional look and feel, especially the pro version.

The rear camera, or better to say, the rear cameras, do protrude a bit, but nothing to complain about, we've seen much worse. This is a little sacrifice in design to enjoy great photography features that will make your photography experience with this phone a great joy. I wonder if the Mate 20 or Mate 20 Pro will pass the P20 Pro on DxOMark camera benchmarks. As of the time of writing, the P20 Pro is in the 1st place on DxOMark.

I recommend checking both phones in our phone size comparison page and the brand new notch comparison tool to better observe the design differences between those brand new Android phones.
