The Lite is the first device from the Chinese firm to bear the anticipated Mate 20 name.

Huawei is widely expected to introduce two more smartphones bearing the same brand; the Huawei Mate 20 and the Huawei Mate 20 Pro.

The latter of which is expected to be the most premium flagship of the bunch and is expected to follow on from the acclaimed reception of its predecessor.

But the Chinese tech giant has also bundled in a ton of interesting features into the more affordable Mate 20 Lite.

Huawei appears to have placed a heavy focus on AI functionality with its latest device.

The manufacturer is insisting the hardware comes with “four AI powered cameras” that allow for portrait mode shots and scene detection.

The device boasts a body made of aluminium, a 6.3-inch display with a resolution of 1080×2340 and 64GB of internal storage.

However, memory can be expanded by up to 512GB with a microSD card.

Huawei’s hardware is powered by a Hisilicon Kirin 710 chip that is accompanied by 4GB of RAM, meaning the device should be very capable.

A 3,750mAh battery is housed inside the smartphone that should provide enough juice to make it through an entire day.

The dual-lens snapper on the back of the device is comprised of a 20 megapixel f/1.8 sensor and a 2 megapixel depth-sensing camera.

Mate 20 Lite’s front features a 24 megapixel sensor and a secondary 2 megapixel depth-sensing lens.

The hardware can be unlocked by using both a fingerprint sensor that is positioned on the back of the device or by using face unlock.

Unfortunately, the product does not come with the latest version of Android.

Instead the Mate 20 Lite will come with Android 8.1 Oreo pre-installed.

Huawei’s Mate 20 Lite will release in October and will retail for £379.
