Above the notch is a minuscule speaker. There’s a 3.5 mm headphone jack too! At the bottom, there’s a USB Type-C port and a second speaker.
The back features three camera sensors and a flash, clustered together in an unusual 2×2 formation. The rear panel is reportedly glass, which is necessary for wireless charging.
XDA Developers also report that the Mate 20 runs Android 9 Pie on a HiSilicon Kirin 980 chipset. The phone has got 6GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage. The device is powered by a substantial 4,200 mAh battery.
The phone is still not coming to the US. Though, you can import an unlocked variant if you really want the device. It will be interesting to see how this phone will push Huawei’s growing market share even further.
