Huawei’s Mate series has managed to create quite a name for itself among power users. The devices in the series are filled to the brim with top-notch internals that will tickle the fancy of any power user. Huawei has now announced that it will be unveiling its next flagship Mate handset on October 16 in London.

The Mate 20 will be powered by the company’s just unveiled 7nm Kirin 980 chipset, an octa-core chip offering up to 37 percent performance improvement and 1.4Gbps download speeds over LTE. The chip also packs dual ISP, Wi-Fi speeds of up to 1.7Gbps, and dual NPU for improved AI processing.

Knowing Huawei, the Mate 20 is going to pack in a beefy 4,000mAh+ battery, a massive OLED display, a triple camera setup similar to what we have seen on the Huawei P20 Pro, and more. Renders of the Mate 20 have already leaked which shows the device will come with a teardrop design. It will also house a 3.5mm headphone jack, a USB-C port, and stereo speakers.

Alongside the Mate 20, Huawei will also unveil the Mate 20 Pro and Mate 20 Lite at the event. The handset will run on a new version of Emotion UI that will be based on Android 9.0 Pie and pack more AI-related features.
