I was completely engrossed in trying to figure out the differences with the variants that are out on the market. I think I've finally figured it out (with the help of Phonedb.net).

http://phonedb.net/index.php

L04C - Canada
L09C - Global Single SIM
L29C - Global Dual SIM
AL00 - China Telecom / China Unicom
AL01 - China Mobile
TL01 - Hong Kong
L01J - Japan

The biggest differences I've found is that the AL00 & AL01 versions have full support for the LTE bands on both SIMs, the L29C seems to be the most flexible as it covers the most LTE bands for the most countries, and the TL01 version focuses mostly on Hong Kong and southeast Asia. AL00, AL01, and TL01 also appear to be compatible with CDMA bands that the other variants are not compatible with.

Huawei's customer service, albeit very friendly and willing to help, did not provide accurate information about the variants. They didn't have any of the FCC reports/certifications available so the consumer could see what each device was certified for. I personally needed a phone that would work with mobile providers in South America, China, and the US. Luckily the L29C variant covers a majority of providers in all three areas of the world. Hopefully this is helpful to someone!

Just so there is no confusion, here is a re-listing of the Huawei regional firmware codes that are independent of the variants/sub-models of the the P20 Pro:

C02 Europe Vodafone
C07 ATT USA

    Hi, so C781 is branded.
    do you know if C781 is based on Version UK (C782) or International (C432)?

    I don't know for sure but I'd assume C432
