By now you should know that the Huawei Mate 20 Pro is the company's latest flagship phone, following a large-scale reveal event in London earlier this week. It also features an In-display fingerprint scanner. What sets it apart from the Mate 20, however, is the fact that it features a 6.39-inch, 3120×1440-pixel AMOLED screen. Smartphones support the new standard memory cards Nano Memory Card instead of the usual microSD - they size and shape is similar with cards nanoSIM and now produces only the Toshiba and only in the version 128 GB.

The Mate 20 has the same Kirin 980 guts, but doesn't get the same supercharged cellular and wireless capabilities.

For security, the Mate 20 Pro comes with In-display fingerprint sensor and an IR camera for Face Unlock. The phone has 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. It sports a Leica triple camera setup. Now there's an ultra-wide angle lens. The rear cameras come with LED flash and Super HDR.

For the connectivity options, the Mate 20 include 4G LTE, Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth v5.0, GPS/ A-GPS, and a USB Type-C port. There's no word yet on Huawei Mate 20 or Mate 20 Pro price in India and release date. The phones' Kirin 980 processor is backed by innovative technology running the latest version of Android, coated with Huawei's EMUI 9 user interface. This display has a high color saturation.

The Mate 20 Pro is the top-of-the-line model that was announced and it goes head-to-head with the likes of the iPhone XS and Samsung Galaxy Note 9 flagship devices.

The major highlight of Huawei Mate 20 Pro is the triple-camera setup at the back.

The HUAWEI Mate 20 Pro is equipped with a 40MP main camera, a 20MP ultra wide-angle camera, and an 8MP telephoto camera. Also, the Mate 20 is expected to bear a starting price tag of Euro 750 (roughly Rs. 63,700), while the Mate 20 Pro might start at Euro 850 (about Rs. 72,200). This includes a world-first feature that I wish would be implemented in more devices: backwards charging. Gamers also have the Mate 20 X, which joins the small list of smartphones that are designed for gaming. It features a 7.2-inch OLED display with support for the Huawei M-Pen. Like the Mate 20, it comes with an IP53 water and dust resistance rating. The Mate 20 X packs a 5,000 mAh battery and the company has said that the device features a cooling design.

The Huawei Mate 20 Pro launch is imminent, which means the inevitable leaks are coming thick and fast.
