Huawei is now rumored to be integrating a new form of device security, Voice Unlock, into its upcoming flagship, the Mate 20 Pro. This device may also have a 6.9-inch screen, as much as 6GB in RAM and an extra-large battery. However, this leak reinforces the lack of a 3.5mm jack in this device.

A new leak concerning the Huawei Mate 20 Pro suggests that it may have a screen as big as 6.9 inches when it is launched. In addition, its battery may have a capacity of as much as 4,200 mAh. It may come with 6GB of RAM, which is fairly standard for a late-2018 flagship by now.

The tech site Girafa is basing the above claims on 'internal slides' claimed to originate from the mobile OEM. They also include references to 'voice unlock'. This new variation on device authentication may work with wireless audio devices in conjunction with bone conduction in order to identify an owner's voice. This may be facilitated by earbuds such as the rumored Freebuds 2 Pro, another purported Huawei product that may integrate bone conduction technology. The leak also claims that, like the OnePlus 6T, the Mate 20 Pro will come with in-display fingerprint sensing, as well as low-latency facial recognition.

The leak also asserts that Huawei is going to unveil a new form of storage in the Mate 20 Pro - a Nano SD that will come in several unspecified sizes. Considering the Android Pie (9.0), Kirin 980 and front-facing steroe speakers also reportedly baked into the Mate 20 Pro, it seems to be all phones to all people. On the other hand, it also apparently lacks a headphone jack.
