It’s no more secret that Huawei is gearing up for the launch of the next Mater series of Huawei phones reportedly due for unveiling later in October. The device is currently being rumored to arrive as the Huawei Mate 20, and indications are that it won’t come alone – it will be accompanied by the Lite and pro variants.
We already have a handful of information about these devices, and the leak train shows no sign of stopping. Today, the Huawei Mate 20 and Mate 20 pro as well as the Huawei Y9 2019 have been certified in Europe by the Eurasian Economic Commision.

The listing on ECC doesn’t reveal a thing about any of the smartphones but does say the Mate 20 and Mate 20 pro will boot Android 9.0 Pie probably with Huawei’s custom skin EMUI 9 out of the box.
Rumors point out that the Mate 20, as well as the Mate 20 pro, will both come with an in-display fingerprint scanner tipped to be the Qualcomm ultrasonic scanner, which can work when greasy or wet. Industry sources claim the display size could be as large as 6.9″ with the HiSilicon Kirin 980 SoC under the hood, paired with at least 6GB of RAM and 128GB storage, but there are chances the device will be offered in more storage/RAM variants. Huawei is yet to detail the HiSilicon Kirin 980 specs, but we expect that to happen later this month at IFA 2018 as Huawei is expected to launch its new chipset at the show.
