Joining the stable with the Mate 20 Lite, released earlier this year, Huawei says the new phones are aimed at the new entrepreneur, with each harnessing the power of the company's highly advanced Kirin 980 chipset.

Huawei today unveiled the new Mate 20 Series which includes four devices: HUAWEI Mate 20, HUAWEI Mate 20 Pro, HUAWEI Mate 20 X and PORSCHE DESIGN HUAWEI Mate 20 RS. The confusingly-named Huawei Porsche Design Mate 20 RS is official, and we recently got some hands-on time with it. It adopts the better camera array from the Mate 20 Pro but also pairs that with the more subtle dewdrop notch of the Mate 20.

The Mate 20 is essentially a watered down version of the Mate 20 Pro that shares a lot in common with its more high-end sibling but offers a water-drop style notch on the front. It's quite similar to the newly announced Mate 20 Pro, except a bit swankier with its leather back panel and improved memory/storage options.

Huawei have gone all-out to give the Mate 20 Pro an iconic design, with symmetry and simplicity at the forefront. For imaging duties, Huawei Mate 20 Pro comes with a triple rear camera setup of a 40-megapixel wide angle sensor (f/1.8 aperture), a 20-megapixel ultra wide sensor and (f/2.2 aperture), and an 8-megapixel sensor which is 3X telephoto lens.

The 7.2in screen also makes the device ideal for gaming, according to Huawei, which compared the handset's gaming prowess to that of the best-selling Nintendo Switch. It also introduces new AI features that enable the HUAWEI Mate 20 Series to perform or enhance a range of tasks from object identification to food calorie counting. But the ultra wide-angle replacement should bring some nice bonuses that elevate the Mate 20 Pro over the P20 Pro. It means, you can continue gaming during light rains.

It'll even charge other wireless-charge capable phones that are stacked on the back, which is... a very niche addition. A friendly one, though.

Let us repeat. It can charge other phones wirelessly. Huawei are also offering more backup options than ever before, with Local, USB, NAS and Cloud options available.

HUAWEI Mate 20 Pro will cost 1049 Euros and it will feature 6GB RAM and 128GB storage.

The Mate 20 is priced at €799 (4GB) and €849 (6GB).

Of course, those upgrades aren't free. Like Garmin and Fitbit fitness trackers, you get full health functionality, but with a classic watch-style design.

Features available to Mate 20 users include being able to isolate human subjects and desaturate the colours around them in order to highlight people against their backgrounds.
