At IFA 2018 Huawei confirmed that the new Huawei Mate 20 series will be officially unveiled on October 16 in London: almost a month and a half from now. Meanwhile, its Lite version has been already announced and several leaks have started to surface online. Now, a known YouTube channel called Concept Creator has published a concept video showing the handset from every angle and revealing one of the most innovative and beautiful designs of 2018. Note that this is not the official look of the upcoming flagship, but the video is based on the most reliable leak and pieces of info surfaced in the past couple of months.
According to the concept video, Huawei Mate 20 will have a full borderless design with no chin and a waterdrop notch containing the front camera only. Bezels will not be the thinnest you have ever seen on a phone, but they will be quite narrow and, most importantly, all of them will sport the same thickness, adding to its symmetry. Above the front camera, there will still be some space for the earpiece, but the fingerprint reader will be placed on the back.
So, even this year we won’t likely see an in-display fingerprint reader on the standard version of the Mate 20, but it may be exclusive for the Porsche Design variant (which is still unconfirmed). Talking about the rear side, we can clearly see a glass panel (the frame is made of metal), as well as a triple camera setup placed at the center in a 2×2 matrix (one spot is occupied by a circular flash LED). On the lower part of the phone, there is a speaker grille, a USB-C port to charge the device and a microphone, while at sec 0:30 in the video we can briefly see a 3.5 mm audio jack on the upper part.
Do you agree with the concept? Will you be happy if this is the final design of the Mate 20?
