With the Kirin 980, Huawei promises faster speeds, better power efficiency, and more powerful AI integration. It is also expected that the Mate 20 series smartphones will come equipped with in-display fingerprint sensor and a new facial recognition technology.
This year, Huawei raised the prices of both core models, which was expected, especially when you consider the introduction of the Kirin 980 and the camera improvements.
The P20 Pro launched with the Kirin 970 processor that offered very capable performance, but it appears Huawei is determined to take things to the next level.

It appears the Mate 20 Pro could also follow tradition by launching in a colour similar to the hugely-popular Twilight finish that debuted on the P20 Pro, renders showed. Well, mostly. Where the Pro model features 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, the Porsche Design variant bumps that up to 8GB and either 256GB or a whopping 512GB of storage.
The Huawei Mate 20 Pro also runs EMUI 9.0 on top of Android 9.0 Pie, and sports a 6.39-inch QHD+ (1440x3120 pixels) curved OLED display with a 19.5:9 aspect ratio, DCI-P3 HDR, 86.9 percent screen-to-body ratio, and high colour saturation.
The smaller Mate 20 has a "teardrop" style cutout. It has a combination of a 20MP f/2.2 ultra-wide-angle lens, a 40MP f/1.8 wide-angle lens and an 8MP f/2.4 telephoto lens, the last of which has optical image stabilization (OIS) and support for 3x optical zoom. There will be a 4200 mAh battery on Huawei Mate 20 Pro, while its sibling will host a 4000 mAh battery.
