Huawei Mate 20 to feature huge 7-inch screen, according to report

Huawei is making a phone even bigger than the iPhone X Plus or Galaxy Note 9

Huawei is making a phone even bigger than the iPhone X Plus or Galaxy Note 9

This seems in line with an expected launch date of Q4 2018 for the Mate 20 series.

A report from Korean news outlet The Bell (via Sammobile) says that Samsung Display is now in the process of producing huge 6.9-inch AMOLED panels for Huawei's next flagship smartphone, which is likely going to be the Mate 20.

It's then speculated the eventual device will be part of the Mate family, which has traditionally debuted near the end of the year.

Huawei is apparently in the process of designing a new, and very large, smartphone. In a couple of months, the Galaxy Note 9 will hit stores, with an "Infinity Display" around 6.3-inches big, about as big as the Galaxy Note 8's screen. Chinese consumers prefer handsets with a large display so this makes sense for Huawei to target the Mate 20 at them. If the report is to be true, Huawei will do for display diagonals what it did for rear cameras: push the numbers to a new extreme.


The new phone is likely to be featured for Huawei's flagship Mate series or come in a separate model.

Of course, there's bound to be some high-end improvements to make this rumored Mate 20 Pro easier to use. Those reports, which were earlier discovered by SamMobile and cite sources in the display industry, suggest the almost 7-inch display would find its way to the Huawei Mate 20, a smartphone that could hit store shelves in the second half of this year.

These are just based on speculations and we are yet to know more about the upcoming Huawei flagship smartphones. In 2017, the Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro arrived in October, suggesting we should expect the replacement phones to come around the same time this year.
