Huawei Mate 20 Pro leaks: curved display, accented power button revealed
by Joshua Swingle / Sep 19, 2018, 11:55 AM
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.

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

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