Huawei is expected to release its new flagship smartphone lineup later this year that includes the Mate 20, Mate 20 Lite and the Mate 20 Pro. Now a new leak may have revealed some of the major specs of the upcoming trio of new handsets.

The leaked specifications for the Huawei Mate 20 line were first discovered by @FunkyHuawei through firmware files and shared online by the XDA Developers blog. Based on the leak, the Huawei Mate 20 will arrive with the HiSilicon Kirin 980 processor instead of the Kirin 970 chip that’s found inside the Huawei P20 Pro and last year’s Mate 10. This makes the Mate 20 the very first smartphone to feature the said System-on-Chip.

Huawei hasn’t revealed the full specs of the Kirin 980, but it’s expected to have a maximum clock speed of 2.8GHz and is believed to feature Cortex -A77 cores. The Kirin 980 is also the first SoC to be manufactured on the 7nm process. It’s also rumored to offer 20 percent better performance and be 40 percent more power efficient than current-generation chipsets. The Kirin 980 is expected to be officially announced on Aug. 31. The firmware files also indicate that the Mate 20 will have 6GB of RAM and 128GB of onboard storage. No information on other memory/storage configurations were discovered.

The Huawei Mate 20 is also said to arrive with a 4,200mAh battery and a 6.3-inch AMOLED display. There’s no information yet if the device will have a notch or a headphone jack. The firmware files may have also revealed that the Mate 20 will arrive with wireless charging support. If that’s truly the case, then it’s a safe bet that the device will also feature a glass back in order to deliver that feature.

Unfortunately, the firmware files didn’t reveal much about the Mate 20 Lite or the Mate 20 Pro. However, they may have indicated that the Pro model could arrive with an in-display fingerprint scanner. It’s also safe to assume that the Mate 20 Pro will be powered by the same Kirin 980 chipset, while the Mate 20 Lite will have a less powerful processor like the Kirin 710 that’s found in the Huawei Nova 3i. A previous leak also suggested that the Mate 20 Pro might arrive with a slightly bigger 6.9-inch OLED display. On the software side of things, all three Mate 20 models are expected to arrive with Android 9.0 P with Huawei’s EMUI 9.0 running on top.

Huawei hasn’t given any details about the Mate 20 lineup, nor has it given an official launch date. However, it’s possible that the Mate 20, Mate 20 Lite and Mate 20 Pro might be announced at IFA 2018 in Berlin on Aug. 31, as speculated by Android Authority.
