Huawei is set to release its Mate 20 devices in a few days. Details of the devices have made the rounds across the Internet for a while now but pricing figures have been mostly elusive. Until now, that is, as word of the Mate 20 Pro’s price tag finally surfaces. For the UK, to be specific.

According to sources, the Mate 20 Pro will ship with a hefty £899 MSRP. That’d be a sizeable £130 increase over the Mate 10 Pro’s price tag in that market. It’s also important to note that the listed MSRP is for the base model with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage. 

Most OEMs have increased the price tags of their flagships, continuing the trend that began last year. The Pixel 3, iPhones XR, and Galaxy Note 9 all launched with price tags higher than that of their predecessors. As such, it wouldn’t be much of a surprise if Huawei did something similar.

In any case, the regular Mate 20 appears to be the more interesting device. It features a smaller notch and a headphone jack—although we’re unsure as to whether it will be sold across Europe. It (the base Mate 20) will almost definitely not be sold officially in the US.

I like tech, simple as. Half the time, you can catch me writing snarky sales copy. The rest of the time, I'm either keeping readers abreast with the latest happenings in the mobile tech world or watching football. I worked as both a journo and freelance content writer for a couple of years before joining the Notebookcheck team in 2017. Feel free to shoot me some questions on Twitter or Reddit if it so tickles thine fancy.
