With an anticipated launch sometime in October, it's a good two months out from an announcement, and yet already there's leaked renders and some specs too.
The Huawei Mate 20 Lite is codenamed Sydney and according to a recent discovery by folks at XDA Developers, the device will have model numbers SNE-AL00, SNE-AL00B, SNE-LX1, SNE-LX2, SNE-LX3, and SNE-TL00. The handset is also said to have an octa-core HiSilicon Kirin 710 SoC that is likely to boost the performance to an extent over the Kirin 659 that was featured on the Mate 10 Lite. The previously surfaced firmware files suggested that the Mate 20 will come with a Kirin 980 SoC and include wireless charging support. It hasn't been revealed whether the storage is expandable via microSD card. At the back, there will be a 20-megapixel with f/1.8 aperture and a 2-megapixel camera, while in front there will be a 24-megapixel sensor and a 2-megapixel sensor.
The rear side of the Mate 20 Lite features a dual camera setup with LED flash in the center.
The website has further reported that Huawei Mate 20 Lite will be available for sale by the end of August with a price tag of around $400 which is approx.
In terms of connectivity, the device is expected to offer a dual SIM card slot with dual 4G VoLTE and LTE support on both slots with Bluetooth 4.2 LE, Dual Band NFC, and Global Positioning System. Furthermore, the new Mate 20 model reportedly has 7.6mm of thickness and 172 grams of weight. The display is also big at 6.3in, and despite the fact that the Huawei Mate series past year all had the same size display, there is a rumour the Huawei Mate 20 Pro might have a 6.9in screen, but this is unconfirmed. It is expected to come in body made of metal frames with glass covers on both sides.
