Chinese smartphone maker Huawei is set to launch its second-half flagship smartphones, the Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro later this year. These two devices are expected to be accompanied by an entry-level model that could be called the Mate 20 Lite.

After a number of leaks revealing details of the Mate 20 Lite, we now have more information about the flagship Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro as well. The Mate 20 Pro is said to borrow the triple lens camera setup comprising of 40-megapixel main camera, 8-megapixel telephoto camera, and a 20-megapixel monochrome camera. The Mate 20, on the other hand, is also said to feature triple lens solution but with slightly lower specification in terms of sensors.

According to Phonearena citing Digi Tech QQ, the Mate 20 will feature a combination of 12-megapixel, 16-megapixel, and 8-megapixel image sensors. The smartphones have appeared in a freshly leaked renders that purportedly depict the front side of the upcoming Mate 20 smartphone. The leaked image seemingly hints at in-display fingerprint sensor, and a 3D facial recognition system similar to the one seen on iPhone X.

Huawei Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro are not likely to differ much from their siblings the P20 and P20 Pro. They might differ a bit in terms of design but the underlying features could be the same. The Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro will likely come equipped with Kirin 980, a new octa-core CPU built on the 7nm process.

The report further notes that the Mate 20 might offer a 6.3-inch AMOLED display and have dual-curved edge display similar to Samsung’s Galaxy flagships. The notch will be wider than the one seen on iPhone X to accommodate the 3D facial recognition cameras. Under the hood, the Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro are expected to house a 4,000mAh battery.
