Huawei Mate 20 Pro dummy surfaced with curved screen
We have previously published a lot of the Huawei Mate 20 series leaks, such as the weird camera arrangement in the back, the specs, and the notch etc. but nothing come as complete in terms of appearance as today’s leak – an alleged Mate 20 Pro dummy.
From the pictures, the leak hinted that the Mate 20 Pro will sport a curved screen. If this leak can be trusted, that means the Huawei is bringing back the curved screen from the Mate 9 Pro era. The Chinese smartphone giant has skipped the curved screens since then, but now it looks like it will be making a come back.
We have seen the display panel of Mate 20 leaked before suggesting that instead of a flat screen and waterdrop notch, the Mate 20 Pro will come with curved screen and a big notch. Matching that alleged Mate 20 Pro front panel report is today’s leak. Pictured above and below is a Mate 20 Pro dummy unit.We’re looking at a nearly bezel-free device. Just like the front panel, this Mate 20 Pro dummy features a much wider notch. The design decision could be explained by employing a more sophisticated face recognition system than on previous models. All that tech, plus the front-facing camera and larger earpiece (probably for improved stereo audio) require more space.
Since we’re probably looking at a curved glass on the sides, the left and right bezels seem minimal. It’s the chin that is just a couple of millimeters taller than a true, symmetrical bezel-free phone would require.
The upcoming Huawei Mate 20 Pro will allegedly feature a 19.5:9 aspect ratio display with 1440 x 3120 resolution. It is at the same time we found out that the Mate 20 will likely feature a 1080 x 2240 resolution panel with an 18.7:9 aspect ratio. They will be powered by Huawei’s latest and greatest SoC with 5G modem, the Kirin 980. Both devices are expected to launch on October 16 in London.
