The Huawei Mate 20 will start at 799 euros (~$927) while the Huawei Mate 20 Pro will start at 1,049 euros (~$1,217).

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. Both devices are a part of the company's Mate series of smartphones.

After resting in the rumor mill for quite some time, Huawei's Mate 20 is now official with a bunch of improvements in all directions.

Most impressive, however, is the Pro's reverse wireless charging compatibility, which allows you to send charge to any other phone with wireless charging enabled.

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 size of the display is 6.53-inches, bigger than that of the iPhone XS Max and it is an LCD panel with a resolution of 2244 x 1080.

As for EMUI 9.0 based on Android 9 Pie, Huawei says it has reduced the settings by 10 percent in an attempt to make things more intuitive and straightforward. The phone is powered by a HiSilicon Kirin 980 7nm SoC with dual AI processor.

In terms of optics, the Huawei Mate 20 sports a Leica triple rear camera setup. The Pro in particular houses three - 40MP for wide angle, telephoto and a new 20MP ultra wide angle lens, which, complemented by those AI technologies now with 150 scenes recognised, promise to deliver a near-enough professional standard experience for all scenarios.

You get a triple-lens camera on the Huawei Mate 20 Pro.

It appears the Mate 20 Pro could also follow tradition by launching in a colour similar to the hugely-popular Twilight finish that debuted on the P20 Pro, renders showed. We know from our review that the Note 9 has a very strong camera, but so too do recent Huawei flagships.

Way back in October of previous year, Huawei introduced the Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro.

Huawei Mate 20 Pro unboxing video has already been leaked on YouTube, showcasing the device in-display fingerprint function working, the front design of the smartphone with a notch, which may include a selfie-camera and 3D face scanning sensors. There's a lot of difference between these Huawei mobiles though, with different specs, display tech and design work - so here's our full comparison between the Mate 20 handsets to help you decide which is best for you.
