Huawei went on the call the Mate 20 X "the best portable gaming machine" out there, and while those specs might've turned a few heads, the powerful smartphone comes with more than a few caveats.

It's larger counterpart, the Mate 20 Pro, will have a smaller screen, but bigger notch than its sibling.

As we previously reported, the Mate 20 Pro comes with a massive 4200 mAh battery that uses USB-C super-fast charging which can push the battery to a 70 percent charge in just 30 minutes. Yes, it's that huge.

Mate 20 and 20 Pro are rumored to have three rear cameras ( can't beat Samsung A9's quad camera, can it?).

It will have three rear-facing cameras available.

The Mate 20 Pro can even be used as a wireless charger, with owners of other compatible wireless charging smartphones able to hold their device against the back of the Mate 20 Pro to charge their own battery.

And now for the main question: how much is it? The price is the same as the Mate 20 Pro, €899.

The all glass phone now supports wireless charging. First, there's the different camera system that includes a 40MP primary sensor, 20MP wide-angle lens, and an 8MP 3x telephoto lens to top everything off.

The fingerprint sensor has been moved from a physical button and is now built into the screen, a feature first introduced with the Porsche Design Huawei Mate RS earlier this year.

The Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro are both powered by the Android 9 Pie-based EMUI9.

The handset also comes with an in-display fingerprint scanner which is not found on the other Mate 20 series smartphones.
