Huawei Mate 20 Pro could have a tablet-sized screen

It is pretty clear that smartphones with a large footprint are here to stay. This puts it in the time frame of the Mate series which usually launches in the fourth quarter of the year. They were first to introduce a three lens camera in their recent P20 smartphone and a Korean rumor on May 31 claimed that both Samsung and Apple were likely to follow suit.

A new rumor suggests the screen could be 6.9 inches, making it nearly as large as the likes of the Nexus 7 and other 7-inch tablets. The Mate 10 Pro is hardly a small phone with its 6-inch screen, but if the Mate 20 or whatever the sequel will be called increases this to almost 7 inches, it'll be larger than most other phones available today.


While not explicitly mentioned, the Mate series has always been the large-screen member of the Huawei family, with the Huawei Mate 9 and Mate 10 featuring a 5.9-inch display. This year, two of the biggest brands in smartphone technology will be unveiling handsets with screen sizes above 6-inches. We'll know more as 2018 progresses, and also discover whether Huawei is planning to use this screen on a Mate phone, or an entirely new line altogether. The Samsung Galaxy Note 9, which often takes the crown for the largest screen, is expected to be a little smaller than 6.4 inches, while the possible Apple iPhone X Plus may stretch to nearly 6.5 inches. Among these, the P30 series is expected to be announced only after the MWC 2019 tech show, leaving a lot of possibilities for the Mate 20 Pro.

If you like the sound of that you've got a few months to wait yet, as we're not expecting the Mate 20 range to launch until October or November.
