The Pro model, which comes with a huge array of innovative features like in-screen fingerprint scanning, will set you back 1,049 euros for the 128GB model with 6GB of RAM. The most premium offering of the lot, the Huawei Mate 20 Pro also features an in-display fingerprint sensor.

Huawei Mate 20 X is priced at Euro 899 and will be available in only one variant with 8GB RAM and 128GB storage from October 26 in select European markets. Huawei's Mate 20 phones have instantly become the best iPhone XS rivals out there, at least on paper, and the high-end model is easily the most beastly Android phone the world has seen so far.

However, unlike its predecessor, the Mate 20 Pro placed its modules in the centre of its rear glass panel. There's a high contrast ratio, and over 87 percent screen-to-body ratio.

In terms of optics, the Huawei Mate 20 sports a Leica triple rear camera setup.

Like the Mate 20, it also has triple rear cameras but in a different configuration- a 40MP f/1.8 wide-angle sensor, a 20MP f/2.2 ultra-wide angle sensor and an 8MP f/2.4 telephoto sensor with OIS. These phones were arguably Huawei's most stylish phones to date, and they were also the first to use Huawei's ... The Mate 20 Pro supports 40W fast wired charging (up to 70% charge in 30 minutes) while the Mate 20 supports 22W fast wired charging, and both models support 15W fast wireless charging.


Besides the phones, it's tipped that Huawei will announce a new MateBook laptop, a new smartwatch and some wireless headphones akin to the Apple EarPods. This display is OLED and has 2244 x 1080 pixels across its face.

However, no details mentioned in recent leaks have been confirmed by Huawei. It claims to last for two weeks.

Huawei Mate 20, Mate 20 Pro launch, price and specifications: Huawei will launch the Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro today at an event in London.

The Mate 20 X is essentially the Mate 20 on steroids, aimed at gamers. Since the screen is so big, Huawei found the ideal reason to launch the Huawei M Pen (sold separately) stylus. As usual, the Porsche Design Huawei Mate 20 RS will be incredibly expensive, starting at 1,695 euros (~$1,966). The Mate 20 X comes with IP53 water and dust resistance rating, a graphene film and vapour chamber cooling system, and support for the Huawei M-Pen. The Huawei Mate 20RS' 256GB version is priced at 1,695 euros (about Rs 1,44,000) while the 512GB variant is priced at 2095 euros (Rs 1,80,000).
