Huawei’s latest entrant in the Mate series, the Mate 20, was rumored to get a Lite version like its predecessors. This rumor was thought to be legitimate because the Huawei Mate 10 last year also had a Lite version launched after it. And now the rumors seem like they are true, because a Lite version has been spotted by GizmoChina on Geekbench.
According to reports, the Huawei Mate 20 Lite was recently certified in China, where we saw some specs leak from the source. The model number of the Geekbench variant is Huawei SNE-LX1. According to previous reports, the Mate 20 Lite is set to feature a Kirin 710 processor, which has not been listed here, though we can see its single-core and multi-core performance here. The single-core score is similar to the Nova 3i which sports the same processor, though the multi-core performance is different because of the pre release software.
We have seen the Huawei Mate 20 Lite on TENAA as well, and the version there sported 6GB RAM, while the one on Geekbench had 4GB RAM. This probably means that the Mate 20 Lite will be available with options for RAM.
Huawei Mate 20 Specifications
The Huawei Mate 20 Lite will look similar to the Mate RS Porsche device, which was released earlier this year at the Huawei P20 event. The Huawei Mate 20 Lite will come with 4 cameras, two rear and two front, of which the rear will have 20MP + 2MP sensors, while the front camera will have 24MP + 2MP sensor combination. Roland Quandt from WinFuture.de claims that the smartphone will sport a 6.3-inch screen with a notch that will house sensors, front-facing cameras, and loudspeaker. It will have an LCD display with Full HD+ resolution (2340 x 1080p) at 19:9 aspect ratio.
