The Autumn months normally bring a host of new devices to get our teeth into, and this year Huawei are planning to launch the Mate 20 and the Mate 20 Pro.

While we don’t have all the information right now, there are rumours circulating about the potential design and features Huawei have put together – here’s the latest gossip.

Expected launch

We’re looking forward to an October 16th release for both the Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro.

Expected cost

Reports put the price of the Mate 20 Pro at around £850.

Design

The Mate 20 Pro is expected to look fairly different to its mid-range sibling – The Bell, a news outlet in South Korea, say the Pro will have a 6.9 inch AMOLED screen, compared to the rumoured 6.3 inch display of the Mate 20. No one knows for certain whether the Pro will also have a glass back for wireless charging, but it seems likely given that it’s the more expensive version.

There’s also been a whisper about a curved screen, though this is also yet to be confirmed.

Features

According to various reports, the Mate 20 Pro will house a 42MP triple lens camera capable of shooting underwater. It might also have an AI zoom and cinema mode, as well as an interesting feature known as Video Bokeh – this lets you blur backgrounds whilst recording video.

Further reports say that the screen resolution will be 3120x1440, and it will include an in-display fingerprint sensor.

Most excitingly, the handset could include a set of Freebuds pro earbuds, which can be charged wirelessly just by resting them (and their case) on the rear of the phone itself.

Technical specifications

The handsets are supposedly built with the Kirin 980, the world’s first 7nm silicon chip that offers 20% better performance and a 40% increase in battery efficiency compared to the previous version. The Pro also holds an octa-core processor with at least 6GB Ram and 128 or 256GB of internal storage.

It will be powered by a 4,2000mAh battery, and of course it will run on the Android 9 Pie OS. You’ll even be able to unlock the phone with your voice, if reports about the Bone Voice ID system are true.

However these may just be rumours – we should learn more as we get closer to the launch, but if you can’t wait that long you can have a look at the best deals available now by comparing tariffs on MoneySuperMarket.

You’ll be able to see deals for both monthly and pay-as-you-go packages, with handsets from the top manufacturers and network providers – this way you’ll find the right deal in no time.
