An early retail listing has revealed the Huawei Mate 20's key specs and pricing
Starting off with the processor, Huawei’s homegrown Kirin 980 is unsurprisingly listed alongside the choice of 6GB or 8GB of RAM. These options are then combined with two storage capacities in the form of 128GB and 256GB which are expandable via a microSD card of up to 256GB. Moving on to the camera department, a triple-camera setup similar to the one featured on the P20 Pro will be present, making use of a main 40-megapixel sensor. This will then be combined with a 20-megapixel camera up front which sits within the display’s notch. Speaking of which, the Huawei Mate 20 is listed as including a 6.3-inch panel, which is only slightly larger than the dimensions rumored earlier today. On one final note, a very respectable 4,200mAh battery is listed alongside the EMUI 9.0 custom overlay which is based on Android 9 Pie.
In terms of when the Huawei Mate 20 can be expected to go on sale, it was previously assumed that the device would make its debut in October, much like previous Mate devices. However, if this listing is accurate, an announcement may actually take place in early September before a release later on in the month. Once this happens, it seems the smartphone will retail for $999.
Before getting ahead of ourselves it's worth pointing out that the listing in question is likely a placeholder one that has been activated prematurely. Thus, certain details are probably inaccurate – the image included, for example, is simply a P20 Pro press image that has been modified to coincide with current Mate 20 rumors. Nevertheless, even if this is the case, it does provide a glimpse into what Huawei’s next flagship launch will bring.
