Huawei has made no secret of its plans to unveil the new Huawei Mate 20 series on October 16– the company even tried to steal some of Apple’s spotlight yesterday by posting three teasers – but, with just over a month to go before the event, confirmation regarding the existence of three flagship models has finally arrived.

More specifically, Huawei’s next three flagships have stopped by China’s TENAA certification authority, which has revealed the various model numbers associated with the devices. For the mainstream market, Huawei has two devices in the works: the regular Huawei Mate 20 and the Mate 20 Pro model. In the case of the former, the model numbers associated have been confirmed to be HMA-AL00 and HMA-TL00. The more expensive Mate 20 Pro, on the other hand, appears to have three upcoming variations in the form of LYA-AL00, LYA-AL00P, and LYA-TL00. 

Like we mentioned above, these two devices will act as Huawei’s mainstream flagships. However, as revealed earlier this week, the company also appears to be preparing an ultra-premium Huawei Mate 20 Porsche Design which has been certified with the model numbers EVR-AL00 and EVR-TL00. At this point in time, though, it’s unclear what kind of design and specs this smartphone will offer.

Considering the usual behavior of TENAA certifications, the specifications for Huawei’s next three flagships should be accessible within the next few days. But in the meantime, it’s already been confirmed that the devices will ship with the Kirin 980 on the inside. Moreover, the Mate 20 Pro will include a new curved AMOLED display.

I'm glad they went with a curved screen, this means we can have a bigger screen in a narrower body.

I think this is the phone that is worth the wait, not just some minor upgrade.

Definitely looking forward to the Mate 20 Pro! My next Huawei smartphone to replace my awesome Mate 10 Pro. I should definitely have purchased a Huawei flagship sooner, as Huawei has really been creating some great flagships.

Does anyone know if the Mate 20 (non pro) will come with IPS or OLED screen?

IPS LCD. If I was even remotely interested in a Huawei phone, this would be a plus. I prefer LCD on my display. Just looks better imo. It's one of the reasons why the Essential phone is still the best.

I like that mate 20 pro. I have 3 phones to pick from in November. THAT WOULD BE pixel 3 xl, mate 20 pro and LG v40. It's going to be hard.
