Huawei Mate 20 Pro leaks: curved display, accented power button revealed

Huawei Mate 20 Pro leaks: curved display, accented power button revealed
With just 27 days to go before its announcement, and following a multitude of leaks, the Huawei Mate 20 Pro has become the subject of the latest live image leak courtesy of tipster Roland Quandt.

Showcasing the smartphone’s front design, the two new images provide a pretty clear glimpse at the 6.3-inch curved AMOLED display that is included. This panel, at least when looking at the images in question, appears to boast almost no bezel at all on either side. When looking towards the bottom of the device, though, it’s clear that a chin is present. However, it does seem to be on the small side of things when it comes to the dimensions. In any case, this bezel isn’t replicated up top. Instead, Huawei has opted for a wide notch which is home to a front-facing camera, the in-ear speaker, and a new Face ID-like technology. Elsewhere in the images, a peek at the smartphone’s aluminum frame is also provided, albeit from one side only. Nevertheless, this reveals an elongated volume rocker and a separate power key that boasts a contrasting red color. 

Before the photoshop police get ahead of themselves in the comments below, both of these images are claimed to be promotional shots that Huawei will presumably use either in press images or official videos. Unfortunately, whoever created the image of the Mate 20 Pro inside of a car has accidentally stretched the device a bit too much when editing, hence why the smartphone looks rather stretched.

As mentioned countless times before, the Huawei Mate 20 Pro will go official on October 16 at an event in London. Here, the flagship device will be joined by the regular Huawei Mate 20 and the ultra-premium Mate 20 Porsche Design.

LOL. S9 + iPhone + chin = Frankenstein.

The reason there is a bottom chin is because the screen doesn’t flex backward to connect to the motherboard like in the iPhone X. Implementing such a design choice is costly and would lead to higher costs which I’m sure Huawei, and other Android OEMs, are avoiding at the time being.

I'm glad someone else knows how iPhone pulls off the no chin design. I get tired of having to explain that to chin haters lol. It's a high probability that Samsung will be removing the chin on the S10 lineup so the devices might have to get thicker to fit it all in. From an engineering standpoint, I would find it hard to curve the sides of the display as well as bend the bottom of the display backwards.

Straight up phone of the year. And I think this will have one of the highest screen to body ratio of top oems. The chin is even comfortably smaller than that of the Galaxy s9. Curved screen + notch + minimal bottom chin = win. Best of all world's.

This phone looks absolutely stunning. My next Huawei smartphone for sure. Design team of the Pixel 3XL, take note.

How is this monstrosity a stunning design? Kidding me. People are tired of these iPhone X galaxy knockoffs. We're tired of these garbage Chinese companies "who doesn't have any identity" in the Android space. I wish they would just die already.

Your opinion on this means as much to me as a gnat does sitting on the @$$ of an elephant.

That Garbage Chinese company just beat your top dog Apple in sales. Please, you invent a new kind of a rectangle with a giant screen on it...

Exactly. This is one of the best designed smartphones of the year, as well. Pixel 3XL design team: take note.

I agree. Looking at the phone, it looks too similar to a galaxy phone with the design. Huawei needs to be more original.

So a Galaxy with a notch... We need Samsung/Apple to shake things up in smartphone design so others can copy them.

A iPhone and Galaxy S9 clone put together. Ugh I can't stand the notch. I applaud the curved glass though.

When a phone has a notch is that wide, do not make that phone with a notch. Normal bezel would be far better.

I agree with your comment despite the fact that I already love this phone and I liked the Mate 10 Pro's design more than this notch. The good thing, however, is that you can black it out.

Anyway, if you like the notch or not, The Truth is that ‘No other manufacturers can make a perfect notch like Apple’, all copy cats have ugly notches!
