Huawei's Mate 20 to use 6.9-inch Samsung AMOLED screen

Share

Huawei usually launches a flagship under its Mate series during this time period.

While the larger display won't be enough to sway iPhone users to switch, it could be a lure for Android fans using other smartphones. The expectations are that the Mate 20 could feature a 6.1-inch display while the Pro variant could have a 6.9-inch display. The phones that are getting a lot of web space are the iPhone X Plus, a larger version to the 2017 iPhone X and the 2018 Samsung Galaxy Note 9, the successor to the Galaxy Note 8.

The brand has ordered for flat panels and not curved ones. Besides the 6.5-inch, Apple is expected to launch two more iPhones this year featuring a 6.1 inch LCD display.

Apple's next "XL" iPhone is tipped to be around 6.46-inches and Samsung's Galaxy Note 9 around 6.38-inches. It is also being speculated that these panels will be used for Huawei's upcoming smartphone scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2018 or first quarter of next year.

Commentators claim the Mate 20's 6.9-inch screen is aimed at Chinese consumers, who are demanding bigger phones for the large screen space taken up by Chinese characters.

Curious to discover what else will the Mate 20 Pro offer?

The reason behind Huawei opting for such a big display is completely to do with the Chinese audience.

No Android maker has copied Apple's iPhone X design perfectly.

Huawei is targeting China with a 6.9-inch smartphone, a market known for its preference for large-screen phones.
