Oh boy has it been an incredible month. Full of launches, teases and rumor-filled madness and we still have a week left before October comes to an end. Earlier this month, Huawei announced the Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro. At their keynote, Huawei decided to show off how efficient their phones are over time while taking a knock at Samsung’s Galaxy Note 9. Huawei claimed that after 18 months, Samsung’s Galaxy Note 9 would degrade about 28%, the worst of any phones on Huawei’s list. It seems like Samsung didn’t take a diss too lightly and has decided to give a light slap on the wrist back to Huawei. Samsung’s clap back to Huawei translated by Ice Universe reads…
I am confident in myself after 18 months, thank you.
The Huawei Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro are definitely some beasts to behold. However, considering how much time Samsung has spent improving TouchWiz on its fleet of Samsung Galaxy phones, it’s only fair to say that the latest version of TouchWiz powering the likes of the Galaxy S9 Plus and Note 9 are definitely way much more refined than any previous version of the UI.
However, on the other hand, Huawei hasn’t been taking their devices lightly either. Huawei made the same promises with the launch of the Mate 10 lineup and the P20 when they launched too. Certainly this is a core focus for Huawei given that they are manufacturing their own chips.
While the 28% may have hit Samsung hard, it certainly seems to be an inflated number on Huawei’s side to make the Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro look good.
Now that Huawei has settled the dust with launch of the Huawei Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro with their incredible lineup of features, all hopes are set towards Samsung’s Galaxy S10. And if Samsung has anything to prove with the Galaxy S10, it would most probably be the lack of the notch as teased at a recent Samsung conference. And hey, it’s sad to see that Samsung didn’t clap back with the Huawei Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro’s 3D Face Unlock fail to distinguish between two people, if Samsung did, it would have been a lot more cheesier. Anyways, its nice to see both companies moving forward.
