"Huawei Mate 20 To Feature 6.9" Samsung AMOLED Screen

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

Although the Mate 20 Pro is not explicitly referenced, considering the wide diagonal of the display and the traditional lineup of Huawei flagships, everything points to the next generation Mate. But remains unclear what smartphone the company might come up with. 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. In contrary, some reports also reveal that Huawei may not launch the Mate 20 this year, instead keep it for the Q1 of next year. Oppo, another Chinese brand, is reportedly sourcing curved panels from Samsung for its next flagship as well. 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. Apple too is planning to opt for a big screen iPhone - allegedly called the iPhone X Plus - featuring a 6.5-inch OLED display. Interestingly, that order is said to come from Huawei and there are hints that the displays might end up on the upcoming Mate 20 Pro. Huawei has a giant following in China and they want their status in the country to grow. Chinese consumers prefer bigger screens on smartphones than people elsewhere, perhaps at least in part because of the large text area occupied by the Chinese characters.

Of course, there's bound to be some high-end improvements to make this rumored Mate 20 Pro easier to use.
