The news comes after earlier this month the European Image and Sound Association handed a big award to the Huawei P20 Pro. The phones will be powered by the newly announced Kirin 980 processor, paired with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of on-board storage.

Huawei's flagship Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro are tipped to launch in October, but the Chinese firm has chose to get ahead of itself with the introduction of the entry-level Mate 20 Lite.

Getting back to Kirin 980, Huawei says the TSMC-made 7nm chip packs 6.9 billion transistors within a square-centimeter die size, or 1.6 times more than the previous generation.

The Huawei Mate 20 Lite has been launched at IFA 2018, and it's the first of several handsets to bear the Mate 20 name.
