Huawei Mate 20 Pro first update brings camera and security improvements
Huawei Mate 20 Pro hasn't been launched on the market for more than a week and it's already getting an update that's meant to further improve the phone's camera capabilities. If you're among the many who bought Huawei's new flagship, here is what the new update brings in terms of improvements.

First off, the changelog mentions that new filters and effects will be added, along with the AI zoom feature for enhanced mini video recording. After the update, you'll be able to apply new features to videos while shooting, such as AI color, Background blur, and Vintage.

The new AI zoom feature will allow Huawei Mate 20 Pro users to adjust the focus, which should offer enhanced video clarity. Also, Huawei included the October security patch, which isn't bad at all even if a handful of devices have already received a new security update.

The update weighs in at 490MB and is already available for download in the UK and South Africa, AndroidAuthority reports. Hopefully, the roll-out will expand to additional countries in the next few days.

I still don't get it why their AOD feature is so dumb, apart from phone calls and messages, it shows no notifications from 3rd party apps.

Use third party AOD apps available on playstore

They're battery killers, they don't work like your typical AOD that comes baked in the OS.

Just checked your link, and it took me to plenty of other links showing the same problem. It looks like it's a widespread issue that is affecting Mate 20's with an LG panel. I thought Huawei said that they will be using BOE panels and the LG deal was signed as a backup in case there was a shortage on BOE's part. I guess they were lying. I'll go ahead an keep my pre-order, and if I get an LG screen, I'm returning it until they fix this issue

That’s why I don’t trust chinese OEM’s especially when it comes to quality. Actullay Huawei mentioned that they’re using BOE OLED and LG OLED as backup, I think both OLED are not good to be honest.

The one from BOE is great if not better than Samsung one, LG however still has a lot to learn from other OLED panel manufacturers

Just like what Aruminiumaian has mentioned, BOE's panels are great, LG on the other hand are known for their trash quality. As for trust, let's not act like other phones have never had quality issues. Talking about screen issues alone, I can think of the Pixel 3, iPhone X, and S7 Edge's vertical pink/line, or the glue issues on l believe iPhone 6 and Oneplus, or color shifting and burn-ins on the Pixel 2 and few other smartphones.

This comment makes no sense seeing as almost all devices are made in China, LOL. So you may as well not trust any OEM.

So then what that means is that BOE Probably couldn't keep up with production and they had to start using LG to. Where is the lie in that?
