Kirin 980 - Huawei Grand Sale

We had an extensive leak of the Huawei Mate 20 yesterday courtesy of XDA Developers. Today, the smaller sibling of the series, the Mate 20 Lite just passed China’s telecommunications regulatory authority TENAA. However, we got to say that the TENAA listing is still incomplete as it still doesn’t reveal specifications of the phone.

Huawei already has high standards in design and it would be interesting to see how the handset maker raises the bar this year with the Mate series. For that, the Mate 20 design can give us a glimpse and a reference for how the Mate 20 will look like.

The front of the Mate 20 Lite looks like it doesn’t have a notch as the sensors placed atop are wide apart. Huawei usually puts small notches on its phones so it is possible there will not be a notch. We speculate because the front isn’t clearly seen in the images. As for the rear, it looks like it is glass-plated and as you can see, everything is placed in a centrally in a vertical line.

As for internals, we speculate that the Mate 20 Lite will feature a HiSilicon Kirin 710 SoC that is fresh off the shelves of Huawei factories. The Mate 20 is likely to get an even newer Kirin 980 chipset and there will be plenty of RAM (at least 6GB) and storage options for buyers as usual. The Mate 20 Pro will probably be a more interesting affair with rumblings of a triple camera setup, on-screen fingerprint scanner, a massive 6.9-inch OLED display, and much more.
