The Huawei Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro’s LPDDR4X memory speed is clocked in at 2,133MHz, up from 1,833MHz of the P20 Pro. Both phones come with 6GB of RAM.

The Huawei Mate 20 Pro also has IP68 dust and water resistance while the Mate has an IP53 rating. Some of the most notable differences between the two are the in-display fingerprint reader and screen quality. Since it’s cheaper, the regular Mate 20 only has a traditional fingerprint scanner and IPS display.
