Huawei is expected to launch three new Mate 20 smartphones this October. Now new details have emerged about the cameras that are on the Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro, while the Mate 20 Lite has been revealed by TENAA, the Chinese equivalent of the FCC.

The Huawei Mate 20 is said to be codenamed “Hima,” while the Mate 20 Pro is codenamed “Laya.” Both devices will arrive with triple cameras on the back like the P20 Pro, according to Chinese website DigiTechQQ. The Mate 20 Pro is said to have the same camera sensors as those found on the Huawei P20 Pro. If that’s truly the case, then the Mate 20 Pro will have a 40-megapixel camera that will be accompanied by a 20-megapixel monochrome (B&W) sensor. Meanwhile, the third camera will have an 8-megapixel sensor with telephoto zoom lens that’s capable of 3x optical zoom.

As for the regular Huawei Mate 20, it will have the same 8MP telephoto camera, but its monochrome sensor will be 12MP instead of 20MP, and its main shooter will be 20MP instead of the stellar 40MP. On paper, the differences might seem a lot, but it may not mean much in real life. The two smartphones are also said to ship with new 40W fast chargers in the box, according to Phone Arena. On the software side of things, both handsets are expected to arrive with Android P with Huawei EMUI 9.0 skin running on top.

It was reported earlier this week that the Mate 20 will arrive with a 4,200mAh battery with a 6.3-inch AMOLED display. Both the Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro are also expected to be powered by the Kirin 980 processor and may have glass backs to deliver wireless charging capabilities. The Mate 20 Pro is rumored to have a 6.9-inch OLED display and an in-display fingerprint scanner. There’s no information yet on whether or not the two will have a notch.

As for the Huawei Mate 20 Lite, the upcoming smartphone has already been certified by China’s TENAA, which also published photos of the handset. The images seem to confirm that the Lite model will have dual cameras on its back along with a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner. It also looks like the device will have very thin bezels and there doesn’t appear to be a notch on top of its display.

Unfortunately, the TENAA listing doesn’t give any information on the Mate 20 Lite specs. The upcoming handset is rumored to arrive with a less powerful processor, which is likely to be the Kirin 710.
