The Huawei Mate 10 is almost one year old. Which means that the time is just right for another follow-up. The Huawei Mate 20 is expected to be unveiled in IFA 2018 later this month. But thanks to this latest leak, we already have an idea of what this device has in store for us.
This report came from a member of XDA Developers’ website, who was able to get the firmware files for the said device. Huawei’s upcoming flagship device will come in three variants: the Mate 20 Lite, Mate 20, and Mate 20 Pro. But the details gathered was specifically for the Mate 20 model.
As per the collected information, the Huawei Mate 20 will have the new Kirin 980 processor, which is constructed on a 7nm process. It is said to have a max clock speed of 2.8GHz. It’s said to offer 20% better performance and 40% more power efficiency than the Kirin 970.
The firmware file also reveals that the Mate 20 will have a 6GB RAM and 128GB ROM variant.
We can also expect it to have a 6.3-inch AMOLED screen. That is marginally larger than what the current generation has, which leads us to believe that Huawei might also bring the display notch on the Mate series.
Probably the most interesting reveal is the existence of wireless charging for its 4,200mAh battery. This also translates to the fact that it will retain the glass back panel that its older brothers have.
XDA Developers wasn’t able to get their hands on the Mate 20 Lite and Mate 20 Pro’s firmware files.
However, we can safely assume that the Huawei Mate 20 Lite will run on a Kirin 710 processor. That’s their new midrange chipset that’s powering the newly released Nova 3i.
On the other hand, the Huawei Mate 20 Pro will most likely run on the same processor that the Mate 20. It’s also expected to come with an in-display fingerprint scanner.
The entire Huawei Mate 20 line is expected to be available later this year. By then, the new Android P OS shall also be ready to go mainstream. So we can expect it be running on this devices once they launch.
