The Mate 20 Series

Big, Bigger, Biggest? 

The Huawei Mate range is fairly new to the Smartphone orb. Despite being a newcomer it featured some of the highest ranked specs in its competitive market, giving devices as big as the Samsung Galaxy S8 a run for its money in overall performance! Quite impressive we reckon; and if that debut is anything to go by we can be forgiven for stalking technology websites night and day in anticipation for an inkling of what’s to come in Huawei’s Mate 20 series. Yes we see you; reading this pretending to be toiling at that boring ol’ proposal due at 4pm! Don’t sweat it – we’ve done the heavy lifting for you and we promise to satisfy that curiosity and leave you bouncing off the walls with excitement by the end of this post!

Here are the facts:

  • The Mate 20 series will boast 3 models – The Mate 20 Pro, Mate 20 and Mate 20 Lite
  • The Mate 20 Lite has already been announced in August 2018 and will be available for purchase in October 2018
  • The Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro will be released in October 2018 with the former being the bigger brother of the Lite and the latter taking the lead as the Flagship of the series
