It was on March 27 in Paris that the Chinese manufacturer surprised the world when it presented its first Android smartphone with the biometric reader under the screen. The Huawei Mate RS Porsche Design has two fingerprint sensors. One in the rear and one already under the screen, an experience that will set the stage for the Huawei Mate 20.
In fact, Mate RS is designed to test new technologies and to probe market and consumer reception. Right now we have no doubt that the Huawei Mate 20 will already bring the biometric sensor under the screen glass. Probably in the Pro variant.

Now that Huawei has introduced its new flagship smartphone series, the P20 and P20 Pro, its attention is already naturally focused on phablets upscale. Indeed, in 2018 we will have a new product range, the Huawei Mate 20 for the high end segment.
Based on several years of experience while techblogger At EBox, we knew from the moment the Mate RS was introduced that this would be the basis for the Huawei Mate 20. It doesn't take a genius to see the signs, of course, before us.
Huawei Mate 20 arrives with fingerprint reader
At this time the international press also advances that the Huawei Mate 20 will present a triple chamber, here like the Huawei P20 Pro. Again, these are expected or even obvious steps given the resounding adhesion to the "P20" product range. What's more, it is certain that the Huawei Mate 20 incorporates the next generation of its own branded processors, the Kirin 980 from HiSilicon. Similarly, it is natural to incorporate the fingerprint reader under the screen. Technology that has been developed by Huawei itself in recent months.
Please note that at this time no information leaks have yet appeared on the Huawei Mate 20. However, it is likely that this Android terminal will hit the market with wireless charging technology. Something that was also implemented in Mate RS.
The next Huawei Mate 20 will be identical to the Mate RS Porsche Design.
Regarding the battery capacity we still have some doubts. At the moment it is impossible to be certain, and an increase of its capacity to over 4000mAh cannot be ruled out. However, the inclusion of wireless charging it would be a strong step in the right direction.
Another feature that should move from Mate RS to Huawei Mate 20 (Pro) will be the increase in screen resolution. Note that at this moment the Mate 10 Pro has a Full-HD + resolution. Already Mate RS has a Quad-HD + resolution that should migrate to the next generation of the line "Mate".
It's perfectly natural to see the Chinese manufacturer using one of its most unique devices to test new technologies. Now, certain that they will be well received in the market, it is also expected that they will be present in Huawei Mate 20. Especially in the Huawei Mate 20 Pro version.
What can we expect from the Huawei Mate 20?
The next generation of Android tops from the Chinese manufacturer are already starting to spark some rumors on the internet. Indeed, it is expected that both the Pro model and the standard Huawei Mate 20 share most of its features.
Here much like what happened between the Mate 10 and the Mate 10 Pro we can have a 5.9 inch screen. Moreover, the display in the base version should have the traditional 16: 9 format. Already in the "Pro" version we should have a 6 inch screen with the new 18: 9 format, probably without notch.
Software – Android Oreo or Android P?
Both versions are believed to have an AMOLED panel. Display with resolution the variant between Full-HD + and Quad-HD +. This for version standard and for the Pro version respectively.
As for RAM, it is likely that the version standard have 4GB of RAM. Here while the Pro version opts for 6GB. Similarly, we may have 64GB of native storage and 128GB of internal memory. At this point it is extremely likely that our predictions will come true.
Finally, it is still early to know which version of the Android operating system will be used by Huawei. However, if it is ready on time, we have no doubt that the brand will use the latest version of the Android operating system with its EMUI.
Staying true to its presentation calendar Huawei is expected to introduce the Huawei Mate 20 during October.
