For years, Huawei and Sony's flagship smartphones have continued to use Full-HD displays, even as the industry standard shifted towards the higher QHD resolution. Last week, though, with the arrival of the Xperia XZ3
, Sony finally made the switch over to QHD+
. And now, if new information is accurate, it appears Huawei will be following suit.
As revealed by a new user agent profile belonging to the Mate 20
Pro, Huawei’s next flagship will offer a resolution of 3120 x 1440p. This coincides with the expected aspect ratio of 18.7:9 that is also present on the P20 series. Additionally, this should translate into a pixel
density of 498 pixels-per-inch if rumors of a massive 6.9-inch display are true. Speaking of which, the Mate 20 Pro is expected to follow in the footsteps of Samsung's most recent flagships by utilizing a large AMOLED panel complete with curved edges
on either side. In regards to the Huawei Mate 20, it seems this device will make use of a smaller flat display that sits at 6.3-inches in size. Unlike its larger sibling, though, the regular model will make do with a FHD+ resolution of 2244 x 1080p, therefore matching that of the P20 and P20 Pro
Aside from the display differences, both the Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro will ship with the new Kirin 980
processor on the inside. This is set to be coupled with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of non-expandable storage. Also, Android 9 Pie will come pre-installed straight out of the box.
Those interested in acquiring either one of the Mate 20 flagships
will have to wait until their announcement on October 16
. Following this, the devices will likely be made available for pre-order ahead of their release at the end of the month.
