I just experienced a freeze of my Huawei Mate 20 Pro smartphone. When I was unlocking the screen using a pattern, the phone completely froze and nothing would work anymore. The clock on the top right stopped moving, too.

I tested some button combination and the following combo worked to force a restart of the phone:

Press [Volume Up] + [ Power ] buttons at the same time and keep pressing for more than 10 seconds. The phone should then restart.
