Huawei Mate now comes with Kirin 980 processor, wireless charging support, and in-display fingerprint sensor


A lot more comes with Huawei’s latest Mate 20, Mate 20 Pro and Mate 20 Lite smartphones. Huawei Mate 20 supports HiSilicon Kirin 980 SoC chip processor and a traditional fingerprint sensor while Mate 20 Pro with a high in-display fingerprint sensor. The former also supports wireless charging support. This results in hard-hitting antagonism with Vivo Nex and Xiaomi Mi 8. Kirin SoC will be the first chipset to be manufactured on the 7nm process.

Till 2017, the company preferred using HiSilicon Kirin 970 chipset for all its smartphones. While, all others thought why didn’t it go with HiSilicon Kirin 980, the latest version of the chipset. Kirin 980 seems to be 50 percent more efficient and 20 percent high in performance.

Huawei will announce the chipset at IFA 2018 and will first time be available on Mate 20 and later on the other two. Huawei Mate 20 Lite may not feature 980 chipsets instead retain back the existing Kirin 710 one.

Huawei Mate 20 may have a 6.3-inch AMOLED display panel (may come with or without notch) and wireless charging port with 4200mAh battery power while Huawei Mate 20 Pro with substantial 6.9-inch display size, 4000mAh battery power, and in-display fingerprint sensor.

Traditionally, all the devices of Mate 20 family run on EMUI 9.0 Android P operating systems. In contrast, all upcoming devices will adopt Android P EMUI 9.0 OS. According to XDA developers, a mobile software development community, Mate 20 will have 6GB of RAM and storage capacity up to 128 GB. The external storage capacity like microSD card is expandable or not is still a huge question mark.

We can expect Mate 20 Pro and Mate 20 somewhat similar to P20 Pro. An initial cost of Mate 20 Pro will be $731. It also features three cameras at the rear end offering similar 42-megapixel sensor as that of Huawei P20 Pro.
