This past week marked the appearance of a bunch of Huawei Mate 20 leaks and renders, some of them with new elements. We came to discover a square back camera and a teardrop notch, plus the fact that the Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro will be virtually identical. Designer Benjamin Geskin has another idea, though…

First of all, the Huawei Mate 20 that Ben Geskin rendered has a more rectangular format than usual, by today’s standards. It also adopts the new teardrop notch, that became popular thanks to Oppo F9 and Oppo R17. At the back sits the square shaped enclosure for the main camera, with 3 sensors and a LED flash. Glass on both sides and a big chin on this device. I also notice there’s a fingerprint scanner at the back here.

Meanwhile, the Huawei Mate 20 Pro is quite a bit different, as it has a larger notch, in order to accommodate a 3D face scanning mechanism. The front panel also has a more generous screen to body ratio, it’s curved on the sides, corners, top and bottom and the fingerprint scanner is gone from the back, being integrated in the screen. The chin is also a bit smaller.

This feels like a different phone compared to the Mate 10 Pro, which is good in a world of successors that just slightly tweak the predecessor. Look at the Galaxy Note 9 and Note 8…
