Powering everything, is the Hisilicon Kirin 980 processor which is the first 7nm processor on an Android Phone. All the three additions to the Huawei mobile price list come with a triple camera setup. The Mate 20 features 16-megapixel ultra wide angle, 12-megapixel, wide angle, and 8-megapixel telephoto sensors. The cameras also include LED flashlights and Super HDR mode. Connectivity options include dual SIM card slots with 4.5G VoLTE connectivity, Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Global Positioning System and Bluetooth. It also comes with a 24 MP sensor in the front for selfies. If your iPhone, or Samsung, LG, headphones, etc. supports Qi-standard of Wireless Charging, you can place it on top, or close to, the Mate 20 Pro, and it will charge your phone. It has an IP53 rating. The handset features a curved 6.39-inch OLED 2K+ display that sports a resolution of 3120 x 1440 pixels and comes with an aspect ratio of 19:5:9. This display has a high color saturation.

The firm claims the Mate 20 X is a "better portable gaming machine", noting that the device will offer up to 6.67 hours of continuous gaming, compared to the Switch's 3.03 hours. It comes with a 40MP wide angle primary shooter with f/1.8 aperture, a 20MP ultra wide angle shooter with f/2.2 aperture, and an 8MP 3X telephoto shooter with f/2.4 aperture. Secondly, instead of the vertical setup, Huawei went with this square slab at the back with the lenses and the flash.

Huawei Mate 20 Pro takes a number of design cues from the P20 Pro that launched earlier this year. The device boasts a 4,000mAh battery under the hood, with support for new 40W Huawei SuperCharge technology. Mate 20 Pro also exclusively gets 15W fast wireless charging support. You'll need it: Huawei designed a sophisticated cooling system that uses graphene film and a vapor chamber to keep the device from stuttering during lengthy gaming sessions.

The X has the biggest battery in the Mate 20 family, with a 5,000mAh capacity. The Mate 20 Pro available at €1,050 price tag. This smartphone comes in two variants - 6GB RAM + 128GB ROM and 8GB RAM + 256GB ROM. After announcing that the phone would also support a gamepad add-on, which clips onto one end of the phone and features a d-pad and thumbstick, he brought up a massive image showing the Mate 20 X alongside the Nintendo Switch.
