Chinese tech giant, Huawei, is reportedly all set to launch the Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro phablets in under two weeks from now on October 16. No wonder leaks are coming in thick and fast.
Today, more info on the Huawei Mate 20 became available which get us not only a clearer look at the device but also its specs. Surprisingly, the Mate 20 Pro version is slated to be the smaller than the Mate 20 as the latter will feature a 6.43″ TFT LCD screen with a resolution of 2244 x 1080 pixels.
As is the trend at the moment, the Huawei Mate 20 will indeed feature a waterdrop-notch display that accommodates a single front-facing camera but will disappointingly, be without laser-based facial recognition feature, even though it will feature the regular and probably faster Face unlock option as usual.
The Mate 20 would be powered by either Huawei’s Kirin 980 Octa-core SoC or the combination of ARM Cortex A-76 and ARM Cortex A-55 cores. It may be available in choices of 4GB/6GB/8GB RAM and 128/256/512 GB inbuilt memory.
The Huawei Mate 20 may be powered by Android 8.1 Oreo at the time of launch but should see an upgrade to Android Pie really soon given Huawei has already released the beta update for the P20 and P20 Pro, Honor View 10 and are about to release it for the Mate 10 Pro in the UAE.

The rear of the upcoming Mate 20 smartphone houses a fingerprint sensor, unlike the Pro version which is said to feature an in-display fingerprint sensor. The rear will also house three camera sensors with dual-LED flash. Battery rating is expected to be an impressive 4000mAh.
With the launch just under two weeks away, it will be interesting to see how the Huawei prices the Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro and what else they bring to the table.
