After unveiling the 7nm Kirin 980 chipset that will be under the hood of the Huawei Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro, Huawei announced that the pair would be unveiled in London on October 16th. This morning, an image found on Weibo (since removed) and re-posted by a Reddit member shows what is said to be the front of the Mate 20 Pro. The other day, we showed you renders of the Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro's back sides revealing different triple camera layouts for the two models.
The front render of the Mate 20 Pro shows an Apple iPhone X style notch (as opposed to the teardrop notch expected on the Mate 20) and a curved edge display. The Mate 20 Pro will reportedly feature an in-display fingerprint scanner and a facial recognition system that will unlock the device and verify identity.
In another series of photos, it appears that the Huawei Mate 20 Pro was being carried around by someone at IFA in Berlin. Pictures show that the handset was wearing a case that was designed to hide the phone. However, the triple camera setup on the rear of the unit certainly gives it away. To see those pictures, click on the slideshow below.
If you live in the states, don't expect to find the Huawei Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro in your carrier's window. You'll need to turn to on-line retailers like Amazon and eBay to pick up either model. Congress has considered Huawei and ZTE devices to be threats to U.S. national security going back to 2012.
