Huawei isn’t slowing down anytime soon. Huawei has been expanding its presence at an astonishing rate. The company has been expanding its presence throughout Europe now that the US has blocked them from entering into the country. Huawei’s next big thing is set the Huawei Mate 20, the successor to last year’s much-anticipated Mate 10. So far, we have seen a glimmer of renders regarding the Mate 20, but as we near it’s launch, it seems like the leaks have made their way through the gaps. Not only do we get to know more about the Mate 20 Pro, but we also now have full-fledged renders of the device in a concept video courtesy of Concept Creator.
The renders that came out from major leakers today pretty much suggested that the Mate 20 Pro would be coming with a full-fledged notch. In addition to that, these new renders coming out from WinFuture’s Ronald Quandt and OnLeaks do suggest that the Mate 20 Pro would come with curved edges, similar to Samsung’s Galaxy flagship lineup.
The curved edges at the sides first debuted with the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge back in the day. Following the success of the design, Samsung made the curved sides a standard on all of their flagships from the Galaxy S8 onwards. Seeing Huawei join the race, especially with such thin bezels, really puts Samsung in a tough spot as Samsung finds itself brewing the Galaxy S10.
In addition to that, Ronald Quandt’s renders do add a lot more depth regarding the back design etched in the glass of the device. Not only do we get to see some really attractive colors, but we also see a number of patterns being embedded into the rear of the device giving the device it’s final etch of polishing and premium aesthetics.
Additional details derived from Ronald Quandt suggest that the Huawei Mate 20 Pro IP68 water resistance and would also feature wireless charging. However, that isn’t the limit, not only would it be able to receive a charge, but would also be able to charge other light-weight Huawei devices out of the box for maximum flexibility. No matter what your opinions are, if this is true, this could be a game changer and would absolutely put Huawei ahead of the pack.
Digging deeper into the concept video, it seems like the Huawei Mate 20 Pro would feature an under-display fingerprint sensor along with a host of tangy colors, similar to what Huawei and Samsung have been doing lately to appeal to larger audiences.
Regarding the triple camera setup teased in the initial batch of rumors, nothing has changed since. We still have a triple camera setup at the rear, arranged in a square-like frame with a single spot being reserved for the flash. The triple-camera setup on the Huawei Mate 20 Pro consists of a 40MP + 20MP + 8MP array, each one outperforming the other in certain situations. Aside from the main sensor, you’re looking at a 5x zoom camera as well as an ultra-wide camera for those killer landscape shots.
Let’s not forget that the Huawei Mate 20 Pro would be powered by a 4200mAh battery and Huawei’s in-house Kirin 980 SoC that claims to be as fast as Apple’s new A12 processor featuring the new 7nm process. In addition to that, the Huawei Mate 20 would be available in a number of variants as poised previously. Previously, we’ve noted leaks regarding the Huawei Mate 20 Lite emerge too. And if you’ve been following Huawei for a while, you’ll know that Huawei traditionally launches their P-series of devices as well as their Mate series of devices in three variants, typically dubbed as (in this case), the Huawei Mate 20 Lite, Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro.
All these leaks do poise a ton of threat to Huawei’s rivals, and for the first time, I am feeling more than confident in Huawei’s strides to become the top dog of the Android world… that is, if these leaks do become a reality when it launches later this month.
