October has been a very busy month when it comes to the smartphone industry.
Several companies have released their new devices and a few of these companies are Google with its Pixel 3 and Pixel 3XL, Razer with its brand new gaming phone the Razer 2, Samsung with the four camera Galaxy A9 and many others.
Well today it is the turn of Chinese giant; Huawei.
Later today in London, Huawei will be unveiling their new flagship devices in the Mate series; the Huawei Mate 20 and Huawei Mate 20 Pro.
The devices have had some renders all over the internet and showcase an amazing display (6.3 inches) with a tear drop shaped notch which will marginally increase the screen to body ration of the device.
Even more importantly, the device is set to be the first Huawei device to house the proprietary 7 nanometer chip set created by Huawei; the Kirin 980 processor.
The device is said to also have a 3D face scanning feature similar to Apple’s FaceID but with the disappearance of the fingerprint scanner on the Mate 20 Pro variant.
Instead the device will have an in display finger print sensor.
Other features are a 4200mAh battery (that is HUGE), fast charging USB Type C (0%-70% in a space of 30minutes), IP68 water and dust resistance rating.
It will also feature wireless charging, Bone ID, wireless projection to transform the device into a computer in tandem with a mouse and keyboard as well as a screen and finally a proprietary nanoSD memory card slot.
The true scope of this device’s capabilities will be revealed today so let’s wait and see what Huawei is going to shake the industry with.
