Huawei Mate 20 Leaked Press Images Show Off Waterdrop Notch, Triple Camera Setup
Huawei Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro, the Chinese phone maker’s upcoming flagship phablets, are set to launch at an event scheduled for October 16 in London, UK. The latest report has surfaced that gives us a look at what are the alleged press renders of the lesser-endowed sibling, Huawei Mate 20. The revealed images show a smaller, waterdrop-style notch and a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor.
Huawei Mate 20 Specifications
The leaked images and specifications come to us through a reputed tipster Roland Quandt who writes for German blog WinFuture.de. The revealed information claims that the Huawei Mate 20 will sport a 6.43-inch full-HD+ TFT LCD panel with a resolution of 1080×2244 pixels. Along with the resulting aspect ratio of 18.7:9. Notably, the notch up top appears much smaller than the one leaked in images the previous week.
The users will enjoy octa-core HiSilicon Kirin 980 SoC. It is paired with 4GB/ 6GB/ 8GB of RAM and 64GB/ 128GB/ 256GB/ 512GB of UFS 2.1 inbuilt storage. Storage will depend upon the country and network operator. As reported earlier, Huawei will introduce a new nanoSD card slot with expansion up to 128GB. 4,000mAh battery will be at the disposal of the user.
At the back of the smartphone, the Huawei Mate 20 will sport a triple camera setup almost like the Mate 20 Pro. While it is reported to get a 40-megapixel primary sensor, specifications for the other two are not available yet. The phone will hopefully retain the 3.5mm headphone jack, unlike the Mate 20 Pro. The report claims that the Huawei Mate 20 might not launch in all markets except Germany. Also, the users can buy Mate 20 for EUR 750 (roughly Rs. 63,700). While the pricing of the Mate 20 Pro might start at EUR 850 (about Rs. 72,200).
Interestingly, a report from Israel had claimed that the Mate 20 would sport a price tag of ILS 3,000 (around Rs. 61,000) while the price of Mate 20 Pro would be ILS 4,000 (roughly Rs. 81,300). It will be available in the country starting in October itself.
Apart from that, its first smartphone to be launched in India will be supported by Kirin 980 SoC, by Q4 2018. This could be the Mate 20 series or also, possibly, another smartphone that Huawei has in the pipeline.
