In last week or so we are bombarded with the leaks and rumors regarding the next flagship smartphones series from Huawei. Back at the IFA 2018, the company confirmed announcement of Mate 20 flagship phones on Oct 16. Since then we have tons of leaks regarding Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro.
Today once again we have a new leak regarding the Mate 20 Pro. The leakster from China shared a couple of hands-on images of Mate 20 Pro which reveal front and rear design details. Even though the tipster claimed the device is Mate 20 but so far leaks suggest the Mate 20 Pro will have an under-glass fingerprint scanner. The leaked device doesn't have rear fingerprint scanner which means indeed it is Mate 20 Pro.
The new hands-on images showcase the Mate 20 Pro in blue color. As expected the device has a wide-notch on the top of the display. The display is slightly curved from the edges. We heard rumors the Mate 20 Pro will have a 6.9-inches OLED display with an aspect ratio of 19.5:9. Although the screen resolution is still not confirmed chances are high it will be a Quad HD+ panel.
One of the reasons behind large notch is Huawei will bring 3D facial recognition. Like most of the latest premium phones, the Mate 20 Pro will have an under-glass fingerprint scanner. The Mate 20 Pro will be the second Huawei flagship phone with triple rear cameras.
However, unlike the P20 Pro, the Mate 20 Pro's triple sensors are placed in a square box with an LED flashlight. At the moment it is still in the dark what will be the configuration of Mate 20 Pro rear cameras. Huawei opted telephoto lens for the P20 Pro as the third sensor, the company could bring wide-angle sensor for the Mate 20 Pro.
It is already confirmed the Mate 20 series will be the first to have the Kirin 980 chipset. The base variant is expected with 6 Gigs of RAM and 128GB native storage. The Mate 20 Pro rumored to feature 4,200mAH battery cell and SuperCharge 2.0 for fast charging. As the launch is still a couple of weeks away, we can expect more leaks in the coming days. Stay tuned, we will keep you updated.
