The Mate 10 series have been pretty successful since their launch last year. Huawei’s CEO revealed they have sold over 10 million units since they went on sale. However, the series will have to make way for a successor soon. The Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro will succeed the Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro and Huawei has revealed the launch date and venue.
For the launch of the Mate 20 duo, Huawei is heading to London on the 16th of October. While the location is different, the date is exactly a year from the launch of the Mate 10 series. It has become a sort of tradition for Huawei to launch its flagship phones in Europe and we don’t think that will be changing soon.
There is a lot to be excited about with respect to the Huawei Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro. Both phones will be the first powered by the newly announced Kirin 980, the world’s first 7nm processor. Actually, we expect a third device – a Porsche Design edition will also come with the chipset.
Specs of the Mate 20 leaked a few weeks ago. It will come with a 6.3-inch AMOLED screen with a water-drop notch and a 2244 x 1080 resolution. There will be three cameras on the rear like that of the Huawei P20 Pro but they will have a different arrangement.
The Mate 20 will have 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. It will also have a 4200mAh battery, run Android 9 Pie out of the box, and support wireless charging. Huawei will likely announce a new wireless charger on that day too and judging from a recent leak, it may be the fastest wireless charger in the world.
