After it was seen on Apple’s iPhone X last year, the notch has now become a common feature on many Android devices. However, some devices now employ a waterdrop notch as against the wide notch seen on the iPhone X. This notch appears to be what will be obtained in the highly anticipated Mate 20 device from Huawei.
The Chinese phone maker has already launched the P20 and P20 Pro this year, and the company is all set for the launch of two new smartphones – the Mate 20 and the Mate 20 Pro. Both of these smartphones will be powered by the Kirin 980 chipset which is the latest chipset from the company.
As usual, there have been lots of leaks about the Mate 20 Pro. However, not much has been heard or seen about the Mate 20. That is, until now. These devices are expected to be launched on October 16. Now, just a little over a week to launch, renders of the Mate 20 have leaked online and we now know what the smartphone will likely look like.
The renders of the Mate 20, leaked by German blog WinFuture, show that the phone looks similar to the Mate 20 Pro, but there are some noticeable differences between the two. One of the main differences is the notch. While the Mate 20 Pro comes with an iPhone X-like notch, the Mate 20 comes with a waterdrop notch. That is probably because the Mate 20 does not come with any sensors on the front for 3D face sensing.
On the back of the Mate 20 sits a triple-camera setup. This is similar to the setup on the back of the Mate 20 Pro. However, while the LED flash on the Mate 20 Pro is at the top-left corner of the arrangement, the LED flash on the Mate 20 is located at the top-right corner. Also at the back of the Mate 20 is a fingerprint sensor just below the camera setup.
The Mate 20 is said to come with a 6.43-inch TFT LCD display with a resolution of 2244 x 1080 pixels. The phone is expected to come in three RAM variants – 4GB, 6GB and 8GB, and four internal storage variants – 64GB, 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB.
As seen from the renders, the Mate 20 will come with LEICA optics. However, not much is known about the details of the camera as of now. The device will be powered by a 4,000mAh battery.
With just a little over a week to launch, we will definitely soon find out everything about the device.
