Huawei just tried a new strategy to get people’s attention and focus on its upcoming flagship: Mock Apple. Yesterday, the Cupertino giant unveiled iPhone Xs, Xs Max and Xr, the new generation of iPhones composed of two more advanced variants and an affordable iPhone which will be available in more color variants. According to a post published on Twitter by Huawei, Apple will bring nothing new to the market with its new flagships. The post says “thank you for keeping things the same. See you in London 16.10.18”. In case you do not know, 16th October 2018 is the date on which Huawei Mate 20 series will be unveiled in London.
With the hashtag #HigherIntelligence, the Chinese company is also hinting at more advanced features based on artificial intelligence on its upcoming flagships. From what Huawei said, it seems that the Mate 20 series will be way more innovative than 2018 iPhones. We already know that the new line-up will be powered by the new octa-core Kirin 980 proprietary SoC. Alongside the new Apple A12 Bionic found on the new 2018 iPhones, until now Kirin 980 is the only chipset built with a 7 nm production process, and it will be the second to hit the market thanks to the Mate 20 series.

Among the rumored specs of the upcoming Mate 20, there is a 6.3-inch display with the AMOLED technology, a 19.5:9 aspect ratio (so it seems that notch will be there) and a Full HD+ resolution of 2244 x 1080 pixels. The Kirin 980 chipset will be accompanied by 6 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal storage. There will also be a triple camera setup composed of three sensors: it should be the same configuration as the P20 Pro. At last, we expect to see a battery with a capacity of 4000 mAh or more.
