According to a recent trademark filing with the European Union Intellectual Property Office, the next-gen Huawei Mate device will be the Mate 20. This is still a bit far from an official confirmation, but it definitely minimizes the chances to see the Mate 11 showing up first, as some rumors have been suggesting.

When Huawei moved from the P10 flagships to the P20 family, it happened after many rumors that mentioned the imminent launch of the Huawei P11 lineup. Now, it's all the same story with the next-gen Mate phablets. The latest release is the Huawei Mate 10 (alongside the Mate 10 Pro and the very expensive Mate 10 Porsche Design, of course), and many rumors have been talking about the arrival of the Mate 11. However, a recent trademark filing reveals that these rumors might be wrong.

According to documents spotted by Mobiel kopen on the website of the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO), Huawei plans to use the Mate 20 name for a product in the future. Sadly, this filing does not contain any trace of technical details.

Moving on into rumor territory, we can point out a few highlights from the list of anticipated Mate 20 specs: a 7 nm HiSilicon Kirin 980 processor, 6 GB or 8 GB of memory, a lot of storage (at least 64 GB, probably the most affordable variant will come with 6 GB RAM and 64 GB storage, accompanied by at least a version with 8 GB RAM and 128 GB storage), at least three cameras on the back, and maybe Android P out of the box. Obviously, a Lite and Pro version might surface alongside the regular edition or at a later time.

If you have any special expectations from the Huawei Mate 20, let us know in the comments. Octa-camera setup on the back? DNA scanner for authentication? A foldable display, maybe?
