At the recently held Shanghai CESA tech event, Huawei had confirmed that it will be launching the Mate 20 series in October just as it had launched Mate 10 series in October 2017. A leaked photo of the alleged Mate 20 smartphone has appeared today. Although the quality of the image is not good, it does manage to reveal that the smartphone would be equipped with slim-sized upper and lower bezels.
The left and right borders of the alleged Huawei Mate 20 are almost non-existent in the new image. This suggests that it could be sporting a dual edge curved display design like the premium Galaxy phones from Samsung. Also, the smartphone does not feature notched display design that was introduced by Huawei on the P20 series of smartphones that were unveiled in March this year.
The exact size of the display of the Mate 20 is not known. Since the Mate 10 featured a 5.99-inch display, its successor phone may feature the same-sized or slightly large screen. However, instead of LCD panel, the Mate 20 series may sport OLED panels.
A sketch that shows the front and rear side of the alleged Mate 20 in the same image has also surfaced today. The front design corresponds with the above leaked image of the Mate 20. The chin of the device has Huawei branding. The backside of the phone features a vertical dual camera setup with a fingerprint scanner below it. Probably, the Mate 20 Pro may have triple camera setup like the P20 Pro.
There is no accurate information available on the specs of the Huawei Mate 20. Around two months ago, the handset was spotted on AnTuTu with a marvelous benchmarking score of 356,819. The Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro will be the first phones from the company to be fueled by the upcoming Kirin 980 SoC. The SoC could be coupled with 6 GB of RAM.
A report from the previous week had claimed that the Huawei Mate 20 Pro may sport a larger OLED of 6.9 inches. There is a possibility that the Mate 20 Pro or the upcoming Porsche Design premium smartphone may feature a new display design that will feature metal strips instead of regular frame to provide users with a very high screen space.
