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

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

According to a report coming from a Korean website, The Bell, Huawei has already placed orders for 6.9-inch AMOLED panels with Samsung Display. That's what the unnamed sources behind today's report claim. We should be seeing more Mate 20 news in the middle of the year, as the launch date closes in.

Of course, this is all just rumors for now, but it would give the Mate 20 Pro a selling point that the other big name, big screen phones of this year can't compete with.

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

IPhone X Plus with Triple Rear Cameras Schematics Leaked
The schematics highlight that the iPhone X Plus will sport a triple rear camera just like the one found on Huawei P20 Pro . Schematics have also leaked for the 6.1-inch "budget" iPhone model that has been dubbed the iPhone 9 .

Apple's next "XL" iPhone is tipped to be around 6.46-inches and Samsung's Galaxy Note 9 around 6.38-inches. These two phones, along with the Pixel 3 XL, will set the trend for big-screen devices later this year, and Huawei doesn't want to miss out on being able to say it has the largest screen when compared to the competition. The screen is one of the most crucial components of smartphones, the first that catches your eye especially after the adoption of the new 18/19:9 formats and increasingly wide diagonals. While this won't make the 6.9-inch phone very pocketable, it will hopefully keep the in-hand size manageable.

It's common for flagship smartphones to have displays of over 6-inches but the panels have not yet reached the 7-inch mark which would essentially push them into the tablet territory. It will be the Huawei Mate 20, the successor to the Mate 10. The P20 Pro is so accomplished, it eclipsed the Mate 10 Pro very quickly, leaving us less excited about future Mate phones than usual. Also, it is expected to be 0.8 inches larger than the screen of the Huawei P20 Pro.
