The Huawei Mate 20 has been spotted in the wild by a keen observer during IFA in Berlin. The device features a distinctive square rear camera arrangement, so the photo looks legitimate. That said, it is not especially surprising a Huawei representative would have the device in hand given its official launch in London next month.

Huawei’s Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro are set to officially debut at a special launch event in London on October 16. However, it has already surfaced in the wild thanks to a Huawei employee casually holding a Mate 20 while on the floor at the IFA trade show in Berlin. This didn’t go unnoticed by a keen-eyed observer who quickly recognized the telltale square triple camera and flash arrangement on the rear of the device in question, taking some happy snaps to mark the occasion.

The device will be powered by the just-announced Huawei HiSilicon Kirin 980 processor, which promises to be a powerhouse befitting Huawei’s last flagship release for 2018. The new chip is fabricated on TSMC’s new 7nm node and will be the first to feature ARM’s new high-performance Cortex-A76 cores and its Mali-G76 GPU for big performance and efficiency gains across the board. The CPU will offer 20 percent faster performance with a 40 percent reduction in power consumption while the GPU delivers a 46 percent performance boost while drawing 78 percent less power.

The rest of the Mate 20 specs are equally impressive with a 6.3-inch AMOLED display with a resolution of 2244 x 1080 pixels and a water-drop notch, a massive 4,200 mAh battery, Android 9.0 Pie (EMUI 9), glass back and that distinctive Leica-enhanced triple camera cluster. Although there hasn’t been a leak tipping a Porsche Design Mate 20 Pro variant, it is almost odds-on that we can also expect to see a special version with more exotic materials like ceramic. All will be revealed next month.

I have been writing about consumer technology over the past ten years, previously with the former MacNN and Electronista, and now Notebookcheck since 2017. My first computer was an Apple ][c and this sparked a passion for Apple, but also technology in general. In the past decade, I’ve become increasingly platform agnostic and love to get my hands on and explore as much technology as I can get my hand on. Whether it is Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, Linux, Nintendo, Xbox, or PlayStation, each has plenty to offer and has given me great joy exploring them all. I was drawn to writing about tech because I love learning about the latest devices and also sharing whatever insights my experience can bring to the site and its readership.
