Huawei Mate 20 to use a 6.9-inch screen

Huawei is making a phone even bigger than the iPhone X Plus or Galaxy Note 9

The report claims that this panel will nearly be 7-inches and that will be far greater than any other smartphone on the market today. Oppo, another Chinese brand, is reportedly sourcing curved panels from Samsung for its next flagship as well.

That's according to The Bell, which says - quoting display industry sources - that Huawei is now sampling OLED panels of that size from Samsung Display, for use with a phone, and that given the timing it's likely they're headed for the Huawei Mate 20 Pro.

To help you visualize this display, it will be 0.9 inches larger than the display of the Huawei Mate10 Pro with a 6-inch display.

Of course, this is all just rumors for now, but it would give the Mate 20 Pro a selling point that the other big name, big screen phones of this year can't compete with. These are meant to be used in a device launching in the fourth quarter of this year or the first quarter of 2019.

Reports also suggest that the new Mate 20's display will be bigger than any smartphones available now in the market. These two phones, along with the Pixel 3 XL, will set the trend for big-screen devices later this year, and Huawei doesn't want to miss out on being able to say it has the largest screen when compared to the competition. "Huawei said that it is protecting the garden with smartphones bigger than iPhone".

Samsung's Galaxy Note 9 is expected to come with a 6.38-inch screen, while one of the three new iPhones later this year is rumored to feature a 6.46-inch screen.

Presumably, the new gadget will get to 6.9 inch screen. There is also supposed to be a 5.8-inch OLED display as well. That is all that the report reveals about the Mate 20. The cheapest iPhone from the 2018 line up, which is expected to feature a 6.1-inch LCD display will be priced somewhere between $600 (roughly Rs 40,300) to $700 (roughly Rs 47,000).
