The triple camera system of the Huawei P20 Pro that was unveiled earlier this year had astonished the smartphone industry. Huawei has promised that the upcoming Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro will be arriving improved specs than their predecessor models. Recently leaked renders of the Mate 20 had revealed that it will be arriving with unique rear camera module. A prototype of the same phone has appeared to reveal the distinctive camera design.
The above render that was shared by XDA Developers had revealed that the Mate 20 is fitted with square-shaped camera module that includes triple cameras and LED flash. The publication had claimed that since the engineering sample device that it had received was protected, it could not determine the shape of the rear-mounted fingerprint scanner of the Mate 20. Hence, it was not included in the render.
What’s shown below is a new image of the prototype of Mate 20 in which the shape of the fingerprint scanner is clearly visible. It sports the same square-shaped rear camera system. The handset is speculated to be fitted with a glass panel on its rear. However, the glass back is not visible in the leaked photo since it is placed inside a protective case.
Rumors have it that the Mate 20 will be equipped with a regular fingerprint scanner on the rear whereas the advanced Mate 20 Pro could be arriving with an in-display fingerprint scanner. As far as the frontside of the Mate 20 is concerned, the render released by aforementioned publication has revealed that it will be sporting an Essential Phone-like notch. The exact size of the display of Mate 20 could be 6.3 inches. The larger Mate 20 Pro may sport around 6.9-inch screen.
The Kirin 980 SoC that is slated to go official at the IFA 2018 as the world’s first 7nm chipset will be powering the Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro smartphones. The Mate 20 could be equipped with 6 GB of RAM and an internal storage of 128 GB whereas the Pro variant may feature 8 GB of RAM. Both the smartphones are expected to be fueled by 4,200mAh batteries.
Huawei will be announcing EMUI 9.0 based Android 9 Pie OS at IFA 2018. Hence, the Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro that are rumored to go official in October may come loaded with the new software.
