Huawei will launch the Huawei Mate 20 Pro, Mate 20 RS Porsche Design in India today, on November 27. The eagerly awaited next-gen flagship Android smartphones come with HiSilicon Kirin 980 chipset, Leica Triple-Shot camera setup, up to 8GB RAM and other high-end specifications.
Huawei India had begun teasing about the launch of the flagship Huawei Mate 20 Pro in India last month. Subsequently, the company confirmed the launch dates of the Mate 20 Pro and Mate 20 RS Porsche Design smartphones. The announcement was certainly surprising because Huawei has rarely been so quick about launching its ultra-high end flagship smartphones in India.
The company’s eagerness to bring its next-gen premium Android handsets to India quickly after launching them, is an indicator of the country’s rising importance as a smartphone market. Moreover, the Huawei Mate 20 Pro and Mate 20 RS Porsche Design smartphones sit comfortably in the premium Android segment, and hence, command a hefty price tag.
