The Huawei Mate 20 Pro is one of the top smartphones released this year. It has triple rear cameras that are pretty impressive, a powerful processor, and a large battery capacity. A durability test has now revealed the phone is also scratch proof. At least the back is.

JerryRigEverything, the popular YouTube channel known for putting phones through different cringe-worthy tests to check their durability is the source of the new info.

The Mate 20 Pro is covered in Glass on both sides but while the front is Gorilla Glass we are not sure if the back is. The front glass scratches but the glass back…….not at all and there is a reason for that.

Most phones with a glass back are fingerprint magnets and to avoid that, Huawei decided to make the glass on the back of the Mate 20 Pro textured instead of plain smooth. So you have multiple lines with grooves running across the back.

The textured glass not only prevents the phone from looking like a complete mess from the oil and sweat from your palms, but it also protects the phone from scratches. In the durability test video, Zack tried multiple times to scratch it and not a single scratch appeared.

The Huawei Mate 20 Pro doesn’t do well in the bend test and that is as a result of its curved display. So you may want to take great care to avoid sitting on it. However, you shouldn’t worry if your toddler decides to drag the back of the phone across the floor.

The Mate 20 Pro has a 6.39-inch 1440 x 3120 screen with a 19.5:9 aspect ratio. It is powered by a Kirin 980 processor with up to 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage.

One of its selling points is its triple rear camera setup which includes a 40MP wide-angle camera, a 20MP ultra-wide-angle camera, and an 8MP telephoto zoom lens. A 24MP camera sits in front along with Face ID. There is a fingerprint scanner under the display, a 4200mAh battery with support for 40W fast-charging and wireless charging.
