Huawei's 'strategic' Mate 20 Pro may land with flexible OLED display
Don't look now, but Huawei is prepping a firm answer to the largest iPhone ever - Apple's rumored 6.46" X Plus that is about to land in September if all speculation clicks. Said upcoming Huawei smartphone is dubbed "strategic" by industry insiders and is likely none other than the Mate 20 Pro

Its predecessor was supposed to be the first major Huawei device to land officially on US carriers until spy mania swept through Capitol Hill, and lawmakers warned Verizon and AT&T to ditch it. Previously, Korean sources reported that Huawei has tasked Samsung with supplying 6.9" flexible OLED displays for the Mate 20 Pro, but now they are claiming that Huawei will diversify supplies with the Chinese BOE which has been dabbling into OLEDs ever since it became clear that these panels are becoming a thing. 

Production yields of the flexible screens are still a problem, though, despite that the company invested heavily in a 6th-gen OLED plant last year, and perhaps this is why it sees a chance to bounce by backing up supplies for the Mate 20 Pro. The phone is expected to sport a new chipset and camera configuration at least as good as the triple one on the P20 Pro. Moreover, with the Mate RS Huawei showed it knows how to create beautiful phones with curved OLED displays already.

Back panel of Huawei P10 Pro looks most mature.

I have the blue version. The back looks sooo good in person! Better than most flagship out there with the same design. It's a shame I have to put a clear case to protect it. It removes some of the beauty

Hope they keep design language of the mate 10 Pro and further refine it and improve upon it. Looking forward to the mate 20 series.

Recent Huawei phones have excellent build quality but software is crappy. Won't buy any phone from them until they stop killing processes in the background.
