Huawei launched its Mate 20 series - the Mate 20, Mate 20 Pro, and Mate 20 Pro X - at a packed event in London last Tuesday.

The Mate 20 is powered by the flagship Kirin 980 processor, which is teamed with either 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage or 6GB RAM and 128GB storage; the storage can be expanded by up to 256GB using Huawei's new Nano Memory card format. It also wields a triple camera arrangement on the rear, including a 40MP wide-angle sensor (f/1.8), 20MP super-wide-angle sensor (f/2.2) and 8MP telephoto lens (f/2.2, 3X zoom).

Will the Mate 20 Pro live up to the high moniker that it has been given? It has four devices HUAWEI Mate 20, Huawei Mate 20 Pro, HUAWEI Mate 20 X, and PORSCHE DESIGN HUAWEI Mate 20 RS. They also have another one they are more powerful which is the Huawei Mate 20 X. This handset is not just powerful but it also has a stylus with 4,096 pressure levels making it the first phone apart from Samsung to come with such feature.

A Huawei spokesman who talked to Business Insider earlier today made it all quite clear: "We are not planning to sell the Mate 20 Series in the US".

They say the best camera is the one you have with you but if we had to choose, we'd probably choose the Mate 20 Pro.

Hopefully the company will find a way to come back to the USA, but for now, we'll have to look towards eBay to get that sweet Mate 20 X. The phone comes with Huawei's SuperCharge tech, which can charge the battery to 70 percent in about 30 minutes. Read on to know what makes the Mate 20 Pro a 2018 flagship.

Google also released a flagship smartphone this year, the Pixel XL 3, but Google hardware is not yet available in SA. The battery life of the Watch GT is 420 mAh and can run up to a month in a special watch mode and two weeks in normal mode.

The phone is R3,000 more expensive than Apple's cheaper iPhone XR - but still significantly cheaper than the iPhone Xs. Just 12% of the phone's front is bezel and the notch is tiny, so there really is very little distracting you from your content, and games look stellar. The effects are also felt while running high-intensity games. While you may find one unlocked via a online United States retailer, it's definitely going to be an global model and when it comes to warranty issues and network compatibility, you're basically on your own.
