In recent years Huawei has been looking for a place of greater prominence among the world’s major manufacturers by offering handsets with powerful specifications and competitive price. As the Chinese do not like to be left behind, it should adhere to the trend that Apple and Samsung have been spreading in the use of the OLED display with a larger panel, possibly in its next top of the line, Mate 20 Pro.
According to information from the Eastern periodical The Bell, Samsung Display started to provide the 6.9-inch screens for Huawei and production would have already started – targeting a year-end or first three-month launch next. As Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro is expected for October, the bet would be for the flagship.
However, while the generous panel speculation revolves around the Mate 20 Pro, there is a chance the company will create a new model for the Chinese premium market – and potentially for world consumption as well. Because there the use of the text area is greater, because of the format of the characters, consumers have opted for large screens of products that come from other countries – usually Apple. And that’s where the gadget would come in.
In addition, its potential competitors are also very obvious. One is the rumored Samsung Galaxy Note 9 that will be released on August 9 and the second is the “iPhone X Plus” that is expected to appear in the fall with a 6.46-inch screen. Note that the last 2 messages appeared many times in the report of authoritative financial media Bloomberg.
Huawei is the market leader in China with 21.2% share, while on the global scene it reached third place (11.4%), behind only Apple (15.1%) and Samsung (22.6%). Having a device with a large screen with the same technology as competitors is then a real need to compose portfolio to the height of rivals.
Finally, for the new generation of Mate models, it is important to focus on the Kirin chip. The upcoming Mate 20 series will usually carry Kirin’s high-end SoC. After all, the Kirin 970’s GPU Turbo only temporarily breathed a sigh of relief from the “siege” of the Snapdragon 845. The system fluency and the qualitative change of the game experience must also be supported by new hardware architectures.
As for the 5G handsets that many people are concerned about, Huawei has announced the roadmap at the analyst conference that held in Shenzhen in April. The first model is scheduled for the 2nd half of 2019. Therefore, this year’s Mate is temporarily not to be thought of.
