Huawei Mate 20 Pro in-display fingerprint scanner stars in video on eve of its unveiling


The Huawei Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro will be unveiled tomorrow. Thanks to a number of leaks, we have a good idea what to expect on Tuesday. Meanwhile, a YouTube poster with the handle NTK95 obtained a Mate 20 Pro unit and recorded an amateur unboxing of the device. The language spoken is Estonian, and without any subtitles, it isn't clear what is being discussed.

The highlight of the video (besides the Angry Bird cup on the desk), is the in-display fingerprint reader, which our video host is setting up as we watch. When he is finally finished with the setup, he tests out the biometric scanner; lo and behold, it works perfectly.

Earlier today, we told you about some leaked posters that reveal a 40W charger for both the Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro. This is a feature definitely needed since both models should be equipped with a battery in excess of 4000mAh. In addition, the pair will each be powered by the home-grown Kirin 980 SoC. It is the first 7nm chipset found under the hood of an Android phone, and as such, we expect to see stingy energy consumption by the Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro.
