Huawei Mate 20 Pro to Finally Enter the QHD+ Resolution Club – Will Sport a Massive 6.9-Inch Screen
While Huawei has been quick to adopt most of the latest industry trends, its flagship phones have sported Full HD and Full HD+ screens up until now. This made their offerings pale in terms of aesthetics when compared to other premium smartphones, although they contributed in terms of battery life. However, it seems the release of the Mate series will mark a transition from Full HD to QHD+, with the Mate 20 Pro receiving the honour of becoming the first flagship from the Chinese giant to feature the aforementioned resolution.
Code Reveals That the Huawei Mate 20 Pro Will Feature a 3,120 x 1,440 resolution - Higher Than the Total Pixels Belonging to the Galaxy Note 9’s Display
According to code found on Huawei's own website, the Mate 20 Pro will have a resolution of 3,120 x 1,440. This means it will have a QHD+ display with a notch. This gels well with the rumours that hinted an aspect ratio of 18.7:9 and also indicates that the pixel density would be 498 PPI.
The website that leaked this news also says that the Mate 20 Pro will flaunt a massive 6.9-inch display, while the standard model will sport a 6.3-inch screen. This is in line with the leaked pictures that surfaced last week which did show that the phones are pretty large in size. Moreover, the Mate 20 Pro is also expected to boast an AMOLED panel with curved edges, and the Mate 20 is likely to have a flatter display with an FHD+ resolution of 2,244 x 1,080 pixels.
While most OEMs shifted towards QHD screen, Sony’s and Huawei’s flagship devices continued to hold on to Full HD displays, with Sony finally adopting the QHD+ resolution with the release of the Xperia XZ3 last week. Even though QHD+ phones look beautiful, they consume more power, which could be the reason why Sony and Huawei sat them out for so long. Huawei might have finally decided to adopt the latest industry standard because the new Kirin 980 SoC, which will fuel the Mate series, will offer noticeable battery life improvements.
Additionally, the Mate 20 is expected to feature a 4,200mAh battery, so thanks to the Mate 20 Pro’s tablet-like display size, we should expect a bigger cell inside that premium unit. The Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro will be unveiled on October 16 and pre-orders are expected to begin by the end of the month.
