The long-rumored Mate 20 family is official, consisting of four devices: the Mate 20, Mate 20 Pro, Mate 20 RS, and Mate 20 X. No one will ever accuse Huawei of launching too few phones. Other specs include 6GB or 8GB of LPDDR4X RAM (Mate 20 Pro), 4GB of 6GB of RAM (Mate 20), 128GB of storage, Cat. It measures 6.39-inches in diagonal and it is a curved OLED screen with 19.5:9 aspect ratio.

Oh and if you want something a bit more expensive, the company has also announced a Mate 20 RS Porsche Design.
