In October, Huawei is launching the Mate 20 series & we already know that the 7nm Kirin 980 processor will power the Mate 20. It is also known that just like the P20 and P20 Pro, the Mate 20 has a notch. According to some trusted sources, the Mate 20 has a much smaller notch than the P20 and P20 Pro. The folks at XDA-Developers were able to have a look at the real-life image of the Mate 20 (Engineering Sample) and based on those images, the renders were made. These renders reveal that the Huawei Mate 20 features a waterdrop notch as well as a triple camera setup on the rear.
According to XDA, the exact dimensions of the phone like the size of bezels, notch or the sensors. Furthermore, it is not known if the fingerprint scanner on the rear is circular or any other shape since the actual device had a protective cover on it. Except for these, the renders show everything that we will see on the device when it launches.
So, as the images above reveal, the Mate 20 has a waterdrop notch like some recently launched Oppo devices. The notch has the front-facing camera, and the earpiece is placed above the notch, which also works as the front-facing speaker.
The rear of the Huawei Mate 20 looks very different from any device that we have seen so far this year. There is no vertical dual camera setup or a horizontal setup. Instead, the Huawei Mate 20 has a single module having three camera lenses and dual LED flash. There is glass on the rear, which mean we are surely getting Wireless charging with this device.
The Huawei Mate 20 packs in all the necessary ports including the 3.5mm headphone jack and the USB Type-C port. There is a speaker on the rear which means the Mate 20 has stereo speakers since there is one on the front as well.
So far, we know that the Mate 20 has a 6.3-inch AMOLED FHD+ display with a resolution of 2244 x 1080. The processor powering it is the Kirin 980, and there is at least 6GB RAM with 128GB ROM. We are not sure if there is an 8GB RAM variant or not. Android Pie runs out of the box, and the phone has a big 4,200mAh battery under the hood with Fast Charging and Wireless Charging support.
The launch is happening in October, so there are still a couple of months left before that. There are chances that Huawei will make a few changes to the overall design of the Mate 20 so stay tuned for that.
