The Huawei Mate 20 X goes on sale October 26 for €899 (around $1,041 in USD).

The Pro model, which comes with a huge array of innovative features like in-screen fingerprint scanning, will set you back 1,049 euros for the 128GB model with 6GB of RAM. Launching in November, the device will sell for €1,695 and €2,095 depending on RAM configuration.

Huawei also introduced the Huawei Mate 20 X at its launch event, which is physically larger than the Mate 20 (with most of the same specs) and features an enormous 5,000mAh battery. Huawei's Mate 20 phones have instantly become the best iPhone XS rivals out there, at least on paper, and the high-end model is easily the most beastly Android phone the world has seen so far.

Huawei has already confirmed its Kirin 980 chipset will power the device and has heavily hinted artificial intelligence will play a big role in the new smartphone. There's no word yet on Huawei Mate 20 or Mate 20 Pro price in India and release date.

Speaking of design, the Huawei Mate 20X features a waterdrop notch approach, giving room to the screen to stretch out to all four corners of the display. Both smartphones will be available in Singapore on Oct 27. 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.

The Mate 20 has 6.53-inch display while the Pro has a 6.39-inch screen, compared to 6.5 inches on the iPhone XS Max and 6.4 inches on the Note 9.

Huawei Mate 20 X is priced at Euro 899 and will be available in only one variant with 8GB RAM and 128GB storage from October 26 in select European markets. 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. There is a 24-megapixel RGB selfie camera at the front, with support for 3D facial unlocking. The phone has been launched in Midnight Blue and Phantom Silver colour options. Huawei wants you to be able to charge your phone in less time, so the Mate 20 Pro supports 40W SuperCharge fast charge technology.

Most impressive, however, is the Pro's reverse wireless charging compatibility, which allows you to send charge to any other phone with wireless charging enabled.

And to keep that promise, the Mate 20 X features Huawei Supercool – the companys name for a vapor chamber cooling with a graphene film heat spreader.
