Before the launch of these devices, there have been lots of leaks, especially over the past few weeks.

The Mate 20 Pro comes with a a 6.4-inch curved OLED screen with 3120 x 1440 resolution, 19.5:9 aspect ratio and 86.90% screen-to-body ratio. Huawei claims that the device has an extremely power efficient display with its 820 nits of brightness. This handset also comes loaded with EMUI 9 which is based on Android 9.0 Pie.

The Mate 20 triple-camera packs a 16MP (Ultra Wide Angle 17mm, f/2.2) shooter, a 12MP (Wide angle 27mm, f/1.8) unit, and an 8MP (2x Telephoto 52mm, f/2.4, OIS) lens. These sensors are coupled with LED flash and Super HDR.

The previously reported rumors of the Mate 20's notch have been revealed to be true. You'll also notice the lack of a fingerprint sensor, which has not been removed, but moved under the display. It has an IP53 rating.

Speaking of design, the Huawei Mate 20X features a waterdrop notch approach, giving room to the screen to stretch out to all four corners of the display. This display has a high color saturation. Some of the specifics like RAM and water resistance ratings vary between devices, though. OnPhones has pointed out that just like the Huawei P20 Pro, the Mate Pro will be Amazon exclusive, which means it could only be purchased off Amazon India.

The 6.4-inch flagship phone, costing €1,049 (£919), includes a fingerprint sensor built into the screen. It also comes with 3D Live Emoji, with support for GIF and MP4 files.
