The Mate 20 Pro is the successor to the Mate 10 Pro, but it’s also arguably an upgrade to the P20 Pro as well, Huawei’s other flagship Android phone.

With a host of new features and completely new cameras, the Mate 20 Pro looks set to be one of the best Android phones around and a tempting option along with rivals including the Galaxy S9, Note 9, Pixel 3 XL and iPhone XS.

When is the Mate 20 Pro release date?

The Mate 20 Pro was announced at an event in London on 16 October, and is available to pre-order from EE, VodafoneSky Mobile, O2 and Carphone Warehouse ahead of its 26 October release date.

Most pre-orders will come with a free wireless charger and Huawei's new Watch GT smartwatch. There are also Mate 20Mate 20 Lite and Mate 20 X models.

What is the Mate 20 Pro price?

There is one model, which makes things simple, and it has 128GB of storage. It comes in five colours, including a new Emerald Green which, along with Midnight Blue, has a new Hyper Optical glass finish on the rear which is a bit like a vinyl record.

The phone costs £899 or 1,049 Euros.

If you’re in the US, you’ll have to import a Mate 20 Pro as it won’t be sold locally.
