That's assuming your government allows carriers in your country to sell it, of course. The Mate20 comes with a 6.53-inch full HD display, while the Pro model comes with a 6.39-inch curved OLED display.

The prices revealed at the launching event are in euro terms, specifically, €799 and €849 for 4GB RAM and 6GB RAM versions of Mate 20, €1049 for Mate 20 Pro, €1,695 and €2,095 for Mate RS's 4GB RAM and 6GB RAM configuration, and €899 fro Mate 20 X.

"We bring you an extra display, extra power and also extra performance". More importantly, Huawei didn't announce any specific games for the device nor talk about any interested developers.

Google's Pixel 3 phones are uglier than their rivals because Google insisted on placing the speakers on the front side of the phone. The USB-C port can be used for charging the handset and transferring data, or for listening to music using wired headphones. It is the first smartphone to also act as a charger. The phone has 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. Samsung and everyone else won't launch flagships with 7nm chips until next spring. Like the Galaxy Note 9, the Mate 20 X comes with a stylus, Huawei's M-Pen, to make it easier to use.

Egypt, Indonesia warn Australia against moving embassy to Jerusalem
President Donald Trump triggered world outcry after unveiling plans to move the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem and declare the city as the capital of Israel.

Another fact to consider is that these devices come with technology that other smartphone manufacturers have yet to employ. If the company wants to push this new type of storage device, it would need to convince OEMs to partner; and that would only happen if they see it as a profitable investment. It gets a primary 40-megapixel primary wide angle lens with f/1.8 aperture, a 20-megapixel ultra wide angle sensor with f/2.2 aperture, and a third 8-megapixel 3X telephoto lens with f/2.4 aperture.

It also aims to go one step further than Apple. It also has a nano memory card slot on board that supports up to 256 GB external storage.

The Mate20 Pro comes with fast wireless charging and one curious feature: the ability to charge other devices compatible with the Qi wireless-charging standard, meaning a person with a depleted iPhone XS could place it on the Mate and charge their battery. There is expected to be a 4,000mAh battery under the hood.

If that's not enough capacity, perhaps the Mate 20 X's 5,000mAh pack will better suit your needs? At the top of the display, you'll find a notch similar in size to the iPhone XS Max.

Major League Baseball clears Astros of sign stealing: ‘We consider the matter closed’
A man claiming to be an Astros employee was reportedly removed from the media-credentialed area next to the Red Sox dugout. The Red Sox could consider going with Eduardo Rodriguez, who threw a scoreless ninth inning in Tuesday's Game 3.

The Mate 20 is not as feature packed as the Mate 20 Pro but boasts some excellent hardware nonetheless.

The 6.4-inch flagship phone, costing €1,049 (£919), includes a fingerprint sensor built into the screen. The front notch on the smartphone consists of an IR dot projector and 3D depth sensing to identify over 30,000 points on your face before unlocking the phone. Mobile payments are also supported. Huawei says you can still use the phone's messaging and calling features independently of the projected image, and that your privacy will be protected.

The phone powered by Huawei's Kirin 980 chipset inside.
