Huawei Mate 20 Leak Shows a Tablet Sized 6.9-Inch AMOLED Display

In the same vein as the recent iPhones, rumors are swirling for the upcoming Huawei Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro phones. The latest such leak comes courtesy of SlashLeaks, which obtained a shot of Mate 20 Pro’s front panel.

The phone looks like pretty much any other 2018 flagship, with minimum bezels and a sizable notch at the top of the display panel. The expansive notch makes the 3D facial recognition capabilities possible on the phone, thanks to additional IR sensors alongside the 24 MP selfie shooter.

Rumors also point towards an in-display fingerprint scanner underneath the 6.9″ curved OLED panel, however, you can’t see that in action in the innocuous shot.

It seems kind of ironic how Huawei recently trolled Apple thanking them for “keeping things the same” even though they’re copying the exact same design for the Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro.

The phone is still shaping out to be a looker, though, unlike Xiaomi and Lenovo’s future efforts it still hasn’t got an all-display front panel.

Other Leaked Specs

Unsurprisingly for this day and age, we also know (or are at least quite sure about) the other aspects of the phone. Under the hood, you’ll get the new Kirin 980, Huawei’s latest and greatest in-house computing chip.

Like the last phone, the back will come with a three-lens camera setup, accompanied by a dual tone LED flash. Powering the phone will be a 4200 mAh battery. The display itself is set in a fairly unconventional 18.7:9 aspect ratio.

The Mate 20 and 20 Pro will be unveiled by Huawei on October 16th in a dedicated event. Stay tuned till then for more updates.
