The Samsung Galaxy S10 was rumored to roll with three different models at launch, the most comparable to the Mate 20 Pro would likely be the 6.44-inches. According to Nintendo Life, Huawei has packed a new Kirin 980 SoC into the phone with a 7.2 inch 1080p display, meaning the device has a bigger and clearer screen compared to the switch - as do most phones today. Yes, it's that huge. Not only can the Mate 20 Pro be topped off using a wireless charger, but it can also serve as a wireless charger for other devices.

Under the hood, it carries the same flagship Kirin 980 processor as the Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro, alongside the triple lens rear camera of the Mate 20 Pro.

The fuller-featured Mate 20 Pro, is priced as low as 799 pounds at some United Kingdom retailers and list priced at 849 pounds or 1,049 euros across Europe. This allows the camera app on the phone to access 3x optical zoom as well as a much closer minimum focus distance for macro shots. There's also a 45% GPU improvement, and it supports 1.4Gbps 4G LTE speeds, although it's unclear how many people will be able to use such speeds.

The new devices will also see improved YouTube performance, including HDR and 360 video, and feature special digital wellbeing tools aimed at lessening user reliance on their devices.

The Mate 20 Pro is the successor to the Mate 10 Pro, but it's also arguably an upgrade to the P20 Pro as well, Huawei's other flagship Android phone.

Other specs include 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. For selfies, the Mate 20 Pro uses a 24MP F2.0 sensor. The Mate 20 X comes with a massive 7.2-inch display and supports Huawei's M-Pen stylus.

These cameras are arranged in a square configuration on the back of the Mate 20 Pro with a dual-LED dual-tone flash in the fourth spot. It does retain a 3.5mm audio jack though something which is missing on the Mate 20 Pro. In the camera department, you get triple rear camera set up consisting of a 16-megapixel ultra wide angle primary sensor with f/2.2 aperture + a secondary 12-megapixel wide angle sensor with f/1.8 aperture + a tertiary 8-megapixel telephoto lens with f/2.4 aperture. None of the five top-selling smartwatch brands now uses Wear OS and it is installed on only 10.3% of all smartwatches shipped within the July-to-September period in Western Europe, according to IDC's data. The selfie camera also doubles up as 3D Face Unlock similar to the iPhone XS. The system is arranged in a distinct rectangle on the back like on the Mate 20 Pro.

Huawei has also noted that the slot for latest Android 9 Pie-based EMUI 9.0 test beta build program will only be available to 5,000 users per device, which means each total of 45,000 devices will be part of this program under testing.
