Huawei Mate 20 launch: Livestream, start time, what to expect

Mate 20 Pro price

As it's done with the previous Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro, it's expected that the two phones will share similar specs and designs, but the Pro will likely have the edge when it comes to amounts of RAM, storage and nearly certainly price, thereby earning its "Pro" moniker. It is also expected that the Mate 20 series smartphones will come equipped with in-display fingerprint sensor and a new facial recognition technology. The Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro are expected to be the successor to last year's Mate 10 series, while the Mate 20X is speculated be the new gaming phone by the Chinese giant.

The Huawei Mate 20 and Pro edition will both be driven by the Kirin 980 chipset - the first phones to be so. Moreover, Huawei is rumoured to offer an in-display fingerprint sensor. That's not particularly surprising, given the Huawei P20 Pro already has three cameras.

Such a design choice appears to have been heavily hinted by Huawei ahead of its hardware showcase. The Huawei Mate 20 Pro is said to feature a 6.39-inch OLED display with 1440x3120 pixel resolution. Battery life is no problem either, thanks to the 4000mAh cell.

In addition, it is thought Huawei will announce a new smartwatch during the event.

However a render appeared to show the headphones being charged while sitting on the Mate 20 Pro's rear panel. Price and colour options of the Mate 20X are yet to be revealed.

Finally WinFuture declared the Mate 20 Pro will cost €999 (£876.38) for a version with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage.

Express.co.uk will be covering Huawei's hardware exhibition in London live.
