Huawei is set to launch a new flagship smartphone later this year in the form of the Huawei Mate 20. We’ve heard some rumors about the upcoming phone in the past, but now thanks to the folks at XDA, they’ve managed to get their hands on additional information about the upcoming phone thanks to firmware files obtained by @FunkyHuawei.
So what can we expect from the Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro? Assuming the firmware is accurate, the upcoming phones will be powered by Huawei’s Kirin 980 chipset, which apparently will be capable of hitting maximum clock speeds of 2.8GHz. It is also said to be manufactured using the 7nm process which should result in better performance and power efficiency.
The Mate 20 is also rumored to feature a massive 4,200mAh battery which combined with the 7nm chipset should help it to last more than a day. The phone is also said to feature a 6.3-inch AMOLED display but it is unclear if the Mate 20 Pro will feature a similar-sized display or if it could feature a larger screen.
The phones are also rumored to feature 6GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, and will also support wireless charging. There is no mention of the camera, but given that the P20 and P20 Pro differentiated themselves from each other with a triple lens camera (in the P20 Pro), maybe the same can be said for the Mate 20 Pro.
Take it with a grain of salt for now, but hopefully we’ll have the official details in the coming months.
