Huawei Mate 20 series is yet a few weeks away from an official launch, however, there have been numerous leaks revealing almost everything about the upcoming Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro. As expected there is a lot of buzz around the new “camera island” layout housing the triple rear camera setup.
While the Mate 20 Lite was revealed globally at IFA 2018, there are rumors that apart from Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro, we may see another device in collaboration with Porsche, the Mate 20 Porsche design. Though not much is knows about this device apart from the fact that it would a very costly and exclusive device.
Coming back to the Mate 20 Pro, leaked press renders reveal the device in its full glory showing a large bezel-less display on the front and a large notch housing the front camera sensor along with face unlock, earpiece and other sensors. The phone may feature an in-display fingerprint sensor.
While on the back we can see the camera island with 3 optical sensors and a led flash. In terms of camera specifications, these images suggest that the camera’s present on Mate 20 Pro are more advanced than the ones on the Huawei P20 Pro launched earlier.
While the primary sensor is said to be a 40-megapixel sensor and the other sensors may vary between aperture sizes of F / 1.8 to F / 2.4. Huawei is also said to be offering 5X hybrid zoom using the software algorithm and achieved a realistic looking image when enlarged. Reports suggest that the Monochrome sensor present on P20 Pro has been replaced by a wide-angle RGB sensor.
If we go by the reports, Huawei may be offering some pretty unique features on the Porsche Design variant this year. It is said to come with one of the fastest wireless charging option available on any smartphone at the moment. Apart from that, it can also charge the Huawei Freebuds 2 on the go, thanks to this wireless charging feature. The phone is supposed to be the first device with Huawei’s new HiSilicon Kirin 980 CPU, which as per Huawei is the even more powerful than the Apple’s A12 Bionic processor.
These images show three different colors in which the device may be launched Twilight with a gradient finish, Blue color with a textured back panel and classic black shade. Though there may also be one variant with a Leather-back, however that may soon be revealed during the official launch on 16th October.
