Even though we do not know what Huawei has under their sleeves, but one thing for sure, the company will definitely unveil their powerful duos - Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro. The Mate 20 series is traditionally the highest-end offering from the Chinese OEM, featuring the year's latest-and-greatest technology. Besides this, Mate 20 Pro is rumoured to have a 4200mAh battery, that will support SuperCharge 2.0 technology, and could be bundled with power inputs of up to 15W capacity.

The Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro are the first to be powered by Huawei's own Kirin 980 processors, which has twice the number of onboard neural engines compared to 2017's 970.

While the new phones have three cameras from famed German camera maker Leica on their rear - a regular lens, a telephoto lens and a wide-angle lens - there are slight differences between the Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro.

The Mate 20 Pro has an in-display fingerprint sensor and Huawei claims it is 30%. faster than that of the previous generation. The Mate 20 Pro has a nano-memory card slot like the Mate 20, making them both the first phones to support the new memory card size.

The Huawei Mate 20X might feature a 7.12-inch full HD+ display. It also has a 3D model scanning feature which allows it to scan objects which can be used in AR mode. The triple rear camera of the smartphone is expected to consist of a 40Mp wide angle sensor, 20MP telephoto sensor and an 8MP ultra wide angle lens sensor.

He wrote: " I held fruitful discussions with the duo on how to promote Uganda's tourism and the arts ". And by the way, when I say that, I'm really not sure which of you I'm talking to.

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. Semantics aside, its a flat OLED panel with 1,080 x 2,244px resolution and a teardrop notch.

The handset comes in two colours: "Midnight Blue" and "Phantom Silver".

While the device is no doubt a powerhouse, the highlight is how Huawei is keeping the temperatures low to maintain performance levels. It also features a cooling system to help with long gaming sessions.

The beefy phones, launched on Tuesday in London, are Huawei's answer to the Samsung Galaxy Note 9, Apple iPhone XS and Google Pixel 3 XL. The Sports version costs $199 euros (S$316) while the Classic model costs $249 euros (S$396).

The Huawei Mate 20 X will launch on October 26. The local price of the Mate 20 RS is now unavailable, but Huawei says it costs $1,695 euros (S$2,696) for the 256GB model and $2,095 euros (S$3,332) for the 512GB model. There is no word on when the smartphones will launch in India.
