The Huawei Mate 20 Series
Well, we don’t have to wait until the official launch in London. We don’t have to wait for the headline “The Huawei Mate 20” in the flesh. Because WinFuture.de has leaked the high-end version among the latest Mate series, the Mate 20 Pro.
Spotted via The Verge, the Mate 20 Pro photos have been revealed by German site, the Mate 20 Pro will sport a 6.39-inch OLED display plus the now popular notch and a screen resolution of 3120 x 1440.
From the looks of it, the Mate 20 Pro got its design from the Huawei Mate RS Porsche Design. What we mean is the display, the bezel, and the chin.
However, the Mate 20 Pro has a slightly bigger screen. But the report says, it will also inherit the in-display fingerprint scanner.
Also, Huawei’s top-of-the-line Mate Series will have a triple-camera system, just like the P20 Pro, but in a different arrangement this time. The Mate 20 Pro arranges its camera in a square. It is still a Leica-branded camera featuring a 40-megapixel, 20-megapixel, and 8-megapixel lenses.
The selfie camera is reported to have a 24MP which is located on a wider notch. Plus, Huawei is reported to add IR laser system for a faster face unlock feature of the phone.
No microSD, but…
This is not something new as the P20 Pro did not have microSD card slot also, but Huawei is said to introduce a proprietary memory card slot called “Nano Memory Cards”. The reports also say that it will look like a Nano SIM card, and will be available up to 256GB capacity.
Under the hood is the latest chipset made by Huawei, a Kirin 980 octa-core processor, which offer a dramatic improvement in processing speed and power efficiency as well.
There will be either 6GB or 8GB of RAM, a choice of 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB of storage.
Finally, there will be a huge battery capacity of 4,200mAh battery, IP68 dust and water resistance, and the latest Android 9 Pie with Huawei’s EMUI 9.0 on top of it.
