However, as is typically the case with Porsche Design smartphones, some major changes have been made over on the rear.
Here's everything Huawei announced at a special launch event in London. It also comes with stylus support, making it a direct competitor to the Samsung Galaxy Note-series. The Mate 20 Pro, meanwhile, has a 40-megapixel wide angle, 20-megapixel super wide angle, and 8-megapixel telephoto lenses. The front-facing camera on the Mate 20 Pro is a 24MP f/2.0, FF unit.
The gamepad will feature an analog stick and a D-pad which will be clipped on the left-hand-side of the device. And that's not all.
Clearly, it seems this smartphone has been designed with the Mate 20 Pro at its heart.
The microSD card has been around for "15 years" said Huawei on stage, while the NM card is brand new. As you would expect, Huawei Mate 20 Pro does not have a 3.5mm headphone jack. The Mate 20 houses a fingerprint sensor at the rear panel, while Mate 20 Pro has an in-display fingerprint sensor.
The phone runs Huawei's EMUI software, which is based on Android 9.0 "Pie". The color options available are Phantom Silver and Midnight Blue.
Facebook: 30 Million Account Tokens Stolen, Not 50 Million
As it turns out, the data of almost 30 million users has been stolen in the breach, a Facebook investigation has now confirmed . Last month, the California-based social media giant had reported that 50 Mn Facebook users' accounts were affected.
The Huawei Mate 20 has a waterdrop-style notch compared to the much wider notch on the Mate 20 Pro. Huawei Mate 20 Pro price is Euro 1049, and it comes in only 6GB/ 128GB variant. But how much will it set you back and when can you get it?
As it is, the devices come with a sizeable battery capacity of 4,000 mAh for the Mate 20 and 4,200 mAh for the Mate 20 Pro. The three cameras consist of a 12MP Wide Angle lens, 16MP Ultra Wide Angle lens, and 8MP Telephoto lens.
The biggest feature - as is now the case on most phones - is that camera setup.
A new neat feature in Mate 20 Pro is its two-way wireless charging feature that allows it to act like a charging pack for devices that support the Qi wireless charging standard. The Mate 20 Pro comes with wireless charging support as well with Huawei 15W Wireless Fast Charge.
The Mate 20 X is essentially a gaming-centric smartphone that will no doubt take on the likes of the Xiaomi Black Shark and Razer Phone 2. The differences include larger internal storage variants of 256GB and 512GB and leather wrapped exterior. It has a 7.12-inch FHD+OLED display, with an 18.7:9 aspect ratio. But it still has a large 4,000mAh battery. There is no info on the price of the M-Pen and the gamepad. In Europe, the phone will launch on October 26th at 899 € ($1,346 CAD).
It's widely rumoured that the triple-camera setup on the Mate 20 Pro won't be the same found on the company's P20 Pro - the current flagship - and that it will have some innovative new features such as an in-screen fingerprint scanner.
