Huawei will be unveiling its Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro flagship smartphones at an event in London on October 16. The two smartphones have seen their fair share of leaks and rumors over the past few months. Now, just about a month ahead of its official launch, Huawei Mate 20 has been spotted on Chinese certification agency TENAA.

According to a report by MySmartPrice, the listing doesn’t reveal any features or specifications of the upcoming smartphone, except for two model identifiers – HMA-AL00 and HMA-TL00. It’s worth mentioning that the Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro were recently certified in Russia as well.

The Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro are all but confirmed to be powered by the Kirin 980 SoC, Huawei’s first 7nm SoC, which the company unveiled recently at the IFA 2018 consumer electronics show in Berlin. It’s worth mentioning that the third member of the Mate 20 line-up, the Mate 20 Lite, is already out, having been launched a few days back in the United Kingdom. It was also recently launched in China as Maimang 7. Thanks to multiple leaks and rumors, we have a fair idea of what to expect from the two smartphones in terms of design.

A set of alleged renders of the Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro recently surfaced online, hinting that the Huawei Mate 20 Pro would have a unique triple camera system at the back, arranged in the form of a 2×2 matrix, with LED flash module making up the fourth element of the matrix. As far as the Mate 20 is concerned, the renders show it as having three cameras arranged vertically. While two of the cameras share a common ‘boundary’, the third is separate. This is the same layout that the P20 Pro has, only flipped.

Talking about specs, both smartphones will most likely pack at least 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. They’ll run Android 9.0 Pie out-of-the-box, skinned with Huawei’s latest EMUI 9.0 UI overlay on top.
