A leaked picture of what could be the Huawei Mate 20 is doing the rounds online and apparently, the device does not sport a notched display. A sketch of the Mate 20 has also leaked revealing a dual camera setup with an LED flash in between the lenses. Further details are scarce at this point but the smartphone is expected to be powered by the HiSilicon Kirin 980.

An alleged first look Huawei Mate 20 has leaked online and gives the initial impression that Huawei will not be bringing the notched display design to the Mate series as seen in the recent flagship P20 release. Alongside the leaked image, a sketch of the Mate 20 has also surfaced showing a vertical dual-camera setup at the back with the LED flash in between the lenses.

Gauging from the leaked pic, the Mate 20's displays looks nearly completely bezel-less save for the top bezel that houses the selfie cams and the bottom chin that bears the Huawei branding. Apart from the fact that there is no visible notch, the display seems to be curved at the edges similar to Samsung's Galaxy line. The display size appears to be around 5.99 inches similar to the older Mate 10 and there is every chance Huawei might opt for an OLED panel instead of LCD but that's anyone's guess at this point. Huawei is known to have ordered 6.9-inch OLED panels from Samsung Displays so we might see a larger display in the Mate 20 Pro. Do also note that the picture is very blurry and it's authenticity cannot be verified.

Alongside the leaked photo, a sketch of the Mate 20 is also doing the rounds online and the front of the sketch seems to match the selfie cam placement seen in the leaked pic. The sketch reveals that the Mate 20 will sport a vertical dual-camera setup in the rear with an LED flash between the lenses. The fingerprint reader finds its place below the camera setup. There is a high possibility that there will be a Mate 20 Pro version that will inherit the 40 MP triple-camera system of the Huawei P20 Pro

Not much is known about Huawei's plans for the Mate 20 series as of now. There were, however, reports of a Mate 20 running on a Kirin 980 SoC that showed stellar performance in the AnTuTu benchmark, outperforming even the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845. The Kirin 980 will be based on TSMCs 7nm process and feature ARM Cortex A75 cores alongside an improved AI co-processor. We will of course get to know more details as we near the Huawei Mate 20's launch in October.

Though a cell and molecular biologist by training, I have been drawn towards computers from a very young age ever since I got my first PC in 1998. My passion for technology grew quite exponentially with the times, and it has been an incredible experience from being a much solicited source for tech advice and troubleshooting among family and friends to joining Notebookcheck in 2017 as a professional tech journalist. Now, I am a Lead Editor at Notebookcheck covering news and reviews encompassing a wide gamut of the technology landscape for Indian and global audiences. When I am not hunting for the next big story or taking complex measurements for reviews, you can find me unwinding to a nice read, listening to some soulful music, or trying out a new game.
