It was just a few days ago that Huawei launched a mid-range smartphone called the Huawei Enjoy Z 5G for the Chinese market. Following its launch, we heard of another new handset from the ‘Enjoy’ lineup called the Huawei Enjoy 20 Plus. As per our last report, this handset is scheduled to be launched in China on June 24. To add to the melee, we now have another ‘new’ handset from the same series – this time with the name Huawei Enjoy 20 Pro, which, as per fresh reports, is set to be launched on June 19 — just a few days from now.
Let’s take a look at what the fuss is all about.
Conversation around the new Huawei Enjoy 20 Pro started after specs of the device first appeared on Chinese social media platform Weibo. An official confirmation later came in the form of a Weibo post made by the official Huawei account. This account posted a teaser video for the device, highlighting some of its features.
Take a look at the video below.
Upon closer inspection, the supposedly ‘new’ Huawei Enjoy 20 Pro is revealed to be just a rebranded variant of the Huawei Enjoy Z for China’s offline retailers. This seems to be a strategy to keep both the online and offline customers happy in that country. We have seen other companies take a similar approach in other markets (including India), where they have launched the exact devices under different names for different target audiences. For example, Samsung used to do this several of its entry-level J series devices in the not too distant past.
Nevertheless, now that we know that the Huawei Enjoy 20 Pro and the Enjoy Z 5G are basically the same devices, we also know what the spec sheet of the Enjoy 20 Pro looks like.
The Huawei Enjoy 20 Pro 5G will come powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 800 chipset and shall be offered in three variants — a base 6 GB RAM + 64 GB option, a mid-tier 6GB+128 GB option, and a top-end 8GB RAM + 128GB version. The device gets an NM card slot for memory expansion.
The display on the Huawei Enjoy 20 Pro 5G measures 6.5-inches across and boasts of a resolution of 1080 x 2400 pixels. This IPS LCD panel also boasts of a 90Hz refresh rate and supports 180Hz touch sampling rate. The display also gets a small notch at the top for the 16MP, f/2.0 front-facing camera. The camera setup on the Huawei Enjoy 20 Pro includes a 48MP f/1.8 primary camera, an 8MP f/2.4 ultra-wide-angle camera, and a 2MP f/2.4 macro camera for closeups. The primary camera supports video recording in 4K resolution as well. At the front, the device gets a 16MP camera for selfies and video calling.
Powering the Huei Enjoy Z 5G is a large 4,000mAh non-removable battery with support for22.5W fast charging in the box. The phone runs Huawei’s own EMUI 10 atop an Android 10 core.
