This is similar to the Mate 20 Pro which will be made available on the 16th of October for approximately 1049 Euro with 6GB RAM and 128GB internal storage. There is no confirmation from the company whether the new lineup will be coming to India or not.

The Mate 20 has triple rear cameras which were co-developed with Leica.

Earlier reports said that Huawei is expected to launch the Mate 20, Mate 20 Pro, Mate 20X, Mate 20 Porsche edition and a new smartwatch.

All of the Mate 20 models are equipped with large batteries, providing electric charge from 4,000 milliampere hour to 5,000mAh, that are created to power users throughout the day, according to the company. Both the Huawei Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro come with a Hybrid SIM slot with the ability to fit in two Nano SIM cards or one Nano SIM card and one Nano memory card.

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. Buyers will be able to choose between Emerald Green, Midnight Blue, Black, Pink Gold, and Twilight color options. The phone has 4GB or 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage.

One of the goals of the President's trade war was to sell more US-made products to China than Chinese companies export to America. In an interview with Bloomberg News on Thursday, Mnuchin declined to comment on the report.


The Mate 20 Pro has a 6.4-inch curved OLED screen with 3120 x 1440 resolution, 19.5:9 aspect ratio and 86.90% screen-to-body ratio.

It has a 4,000mAh battery with 22.5W fast charging, a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, an IP53 rating, and even has a 3.5mm audio jack.

However, with the Mate 20 series, Huawei has dropped the monochrome camera - a mainstay in their predecessors, which takes in more light for better low-light photos. But the talking point is the support for SuperCharge 40W fast charging technology.

Both of these devices marked the arrival of Huawei's new processor, the Kirin 980 into the market. There is a 24-megapixel RGB selfie camera at the front, with support for 3D facial unlocking. The smartphones also support up to 15W Qi-based wireless charging. The watch runs Huawei's own LiteOS operating system and features a 1.39-inch Amoled display.

"These devices are the "mate" of consumers - accompanying and empowering them to enjoy a richer, more fulfilled life with their higher intelligence, unparalleled battery life and powerful camera performance", Richard Yu Chengdong, chief executive of Huawei's consumer business group, said in a statement after the launch of the new smartphones.
