The Huawei Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro, which are guaranteed to see daylight in London next week, have been leaked multiple times in a number of paint jobs already, but for the most part, we've dealt with press-friendly renders. Huawei shows the Mate 20X playing a game for the entirety of the teaser, though it's impossible to make out any concrete details. We believe that just like the remaining two handsets getting unveiled, this one will be armed with a Kirin 980 SoC. However, if the latest leaks turn out to be accurate, the Huawei Mate 20 will beat the Xiaomi Mi 8 (almost) without breaking a sweat.

The claim may be accurate, as it turns out. This phone is codenamed Everest and is either a high-end Porsche Design edition or an even larger model.

In another show of just how powerful the Kirin 980 is, a Huawei executive recently shared a video showing one of the Mate 20 devices hitting 60 frames per second on National Basketball Association 2K18, which is no small feat given how graphically demanding National Basketball Association 2K games are on smaller screens. While we are expecting that the Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro are going to be announced, we should also prepare ourselves for the upcoming Mate 20X, which is expected to feature powerful internals and a massive battery thanks to its large display. Unlike the Mate 20 Pro, this smartphone will come with a headphone jack.

Huawei Mate 20 Pro has been spotted online a week ahead of its launch. While the standard Mate 20 is depicted with a rear fingerprint sensor, the Mate 20 Pro will feature an in-display reader.
