The latest leak apparently confirms some rumors that have been flying around about the Mate 20.

Huawei is all set to launch a new smartphone in the Huawei Mate series, dubbed as the Huawei Mate 20 Lite, which could be the first smartphone to launch under the Mate 20 series of smartphones. Like the previous generation, the Mate lineup should launch sometime in October. The previously surfaced firmware files suggested that the Mate 20 will come with a Kirin 980 SoC and include wireless charging support.

The upcoming Huawei Mate 20 and the Mate 20 Lite are two of the three premium devices that will be launched by the Chinese giant later in the year.


The firmware files leaked specifically detail the standard model, the Huawei Mate 20, which means you can expect the Huawei Mate 20 Lite to have a slightly reduced spec in some areas from this, while the Huawei Mate 20 Pro will have a few extra perks. Leaks have been flowing in all directions; with the Mate 20 these leaks reveal the front panel of the smartphone and with the Mate 20 Lite you can check out the handset from all different directions. Two SIM card slots will be available on the phone (2x nano SIM), while a 3,650mAh battery will also be a part of the package. However, the images make it unclear whether it is the Mate 20 or the Mate 20 Pro that we are dealing with. The chip itself is pegged for a big announcement at IFA 2018 in Berlin, Germany, expected on August 30, while the phones running it should be announced at a later date. However, there are several other Huawei devices in line to receive the GPU Turbo update which is expected to receive the update this month.

The Huawei Mate 20 Lite is codenamed Sydney and according to a recent discovery by folks at XDA Developers, the device will have model numbers SNE-AL00, SNE-AL00B, SNE-LX1, SNE-LX2, SNE-LX3, and SNE-TL00. It's not clear if these proportons will apply to both the Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro, or just the latter.
