Huawei's Mate 20 series may not arrive in gradient colors, despite popularity
Huawei P20 and P20 Pro

Huawei has certainly made a name for itself this year by introducing some rather unique features to its smartphones. The P20 Pro, for example, made use of the industry’s first triple-camera setup, while the Mate 20 line is set to utilize the world’s first 7nm processor. Another decision that caught the public’s eye was the introduction of Huawei’s new gradient colors on the P20 Pro. But unfortunately, it seems as though these may not be making a return with the Mate 20 series.

So far, according to information provided by tipster Roland Quandt, Huawei has chosen only two basic colors for its next flagship smartphones: black and blue. These two variants are certainly nothing new – Huawei has used them on multiple smartphones before – so it’s no big surprise to hear that they will be making a return. However, it does seem a little odd that no gradient models for the Mate 20 or Mate 20 Pro have been selected for release. After all, due to the popularity of the original P20 Pro gradient color, Huawei announced two extra ones just last week.

Quandt has confirmed that other colors could be added to Huawei’s release schedule ahead of the unveiling on October 16, which means variants with gradient colors could still make it to the market. But considering they are yet to be confirmed, perhaps Huawei has chosen to reserve these unique offerings for its P-series releases.

No matter which colors the Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro arrive in, the two devices are destined to impress. After all, alongside the Kirin 980 that was mentioned above, the smartphones are expected to incorporate 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. Additionally, a triple-camera setup will be included on the rear of both, while Android 9 Pie will come pre-installed. As an added bonus, those who purchase the Pro model are expected to gain access to an in-display fingerprint sensor, and a curved edge display.
