Huawei's new flagship series, the Mate 20 models, will officially be launched today at an event in London.

The Huawei Mate 20 Pro has a curved screen with a notch cut out at the top and a slim bezel below. Both phones are now available in select European markets. The Huawei Mate 20 X comes with a massive 7.2-inch display and support for Huawei's M-Pen stylus.

The P20 Pro launched with the Kirin 970 processor that offered very capable performance, but it appears Huawei is determined to take things to the next level.

It appears the Mate 20 Pro could also follow tradition by launching in a colour similar to the hugely-popular Twilight finish that debuted on the P20 Pro, renders showed. The device is said to feature a 6.39-inch OLED display with a resolution of 3120×1440 pixels.

One of the key differences between the Mate 20 and the Mate 20 Pro is the display and its different approaches.
