Huawei Mate 20 Pro launching in India on November 27

Chinese smartphone brand Huawei announced the Mate 20 Pro last month at an event in London. And then a couple of days later, Huawei said that it would bring this smartphone to India in November. However, at that time, the company didn’t reveal the exact launch date of Mate 20 Pro in India. But now, we finally know that the Mate 20 Pro is reaching Indian shores next week.


Huawei has announced that the Mate 20 Pro will be launched in India next week on November 27. However, there’s no word on whether Huawei will launch the Mate 20, the Mate 20 X, and, the Porsche Design Mate 20 RS in India or not.

The Huawei Mate 20 Pro is a flagship smartphone which is powered by Kirin 980 SoC that was announced at IFA 2018 in Berlin, Germany. The smartphone comes in two configurations – 6 GB RAM + 128 GB storage, and 8 GB RAM + 256 GB storage. However, according to Mate 20 Pro’s landing page on Amazon India, it looks like Huawei will only sell the 6 GB RAM variant in the country.
