Huawei Mate 20 Pro is the expected successor of the company ‘s premium flagship, Mate 10 Pro. The phone has already been in the spotlight for its insanely high benchmarks scores that were leaked earlier in which it even crushed the iPhone X and the Galaxy S9+.
Mate 10 came with an LCD panel while the Pro version housed an AMOLED display. Whereas the company is said to take things to another level with Mate 20 Pro and according to a Korean website, ETNews, the upcoming flagship from the Chinese manufacturer will sport a flexible OLED display.
The website has cited sources within the industry and has further stated that the display will be supplied by BOE Global, a Chinese company that has already been known to work on flexible OLED displays.
Huawei unleashed the Mate RS Porsche Design earlier this year which also sported an OLED display manufactured by LG. According to the publication in ET News, Huawei has struck a deal with BOE to retain the supply of the panels that will go for mass production this month. This shows that the display quality from BOE is quite enough to deviate Huawei from LG display technology.
The use of this technology opens up endless possibilities for smartphones. A complete removal of the bottom chin and an in-display fingerprint scanner are the kinds of feats that can be using such displays.
Earlier the specs of Huawei Mate 20 Pro were also leaked on Weibo according to which the phone will host a Kirin 980 chipset. Since AI integration in phones has become a standard for the flagships and being the first to provide a dedicated AI unit on the chipset, Huawei is expected to equip the Mate 20 Pro with more refined AI technology.
Besides that, the phone is expected to come in two memory variants, 64/128 GB accompanied by a 6GB RAM and is expected to release in October this year.
