Massive Mate 20 Pro could have Samsung OLED display

Huawei looks to be really pushing the boundaries of the Mate line and moving into full-blown tablet territory, with rumors indicating a Mate 20 Pro with a near 7-inch diagonal, surpassing even the size of the Galaxy Note series. And that's not all that's reminiscent of Samsung: it seems that the Korean company is ready to supply its OLED panels to Huawei for this device.

The first rumors surrounding the display of the Huawei Mate 20 Pro come from The Bell, South Korea's online magazine. The screen is one of the most crucial components of smartphones, the first that catches your eye especially after the adoption of the new 18/19:9 formats and increasingly wide diagonals. If the report is to be true, Huawei will do for display diagonals what it did for rear cameras: push the numbers to a new extreme.

There's multimedia at the heart of everything: photos and videos are the meat and potatoes of smartphones for most users and Huawei wants to maximize the enjoyment of this content. It seems that Huawei wants to order OLED panels directly from Samsung to be integrated on its next flagship. The South Korean manufacturer allegedly sent several samples to the Chinese company, including 6.9-inch OLED panels. OLED displays, compared to LCD displays, tend to offer brighter colors and deeper blacks.

Although the Mate 20 Pro is not explicitly referenced, considering the wide diagonal of the display and the traditional lineup of Huawei flagships, everything points to the next generation Mate. The phablet, if it follows the family traditions, should be released in autumn, between late autumn and early November, but for the moment we have no official date.

Curious to discover what else will the Mate 20 Pro offer? Do you want to see a triple camera like on the P20 Pro?

    I currently have a Google Nexus 6P by Huawei and it has been an incredible device. However, I do wish it was bigger, and if the Huawei Mate 20 Pro becomes reality with high specs there is no doubt in my mind I will buy it even being priced north of $1000.00 USD.

  • Bring it on. Bigger can be better. Not for every one, but there is a niche market as long as the specs are high end. Will most certainly purchase!!!

  • I was one of the first to get a large screen phone, in 2010, when, MOST phone screens were the iPhone, at 3.5". I bought the Dell Streak 5, because I didn't want to SQUINT or have pinch zoom or scroll to do what I needed. Shoot, the screen, was bigger than most phones of the time. Constantly I'd get THAT, is your phone?
    But, I've found the sweet spot for me, is between 5.6-5.9". Anything over 6" screen, is just to big to lug around, even if it is a belt clip case. The problem is, I don't like to have to grab my phone while in the car, so I have a windshield mount. The Mate9, currently my phone, is almost too big to mount to the windshield, without impacting seeing out of my car

  • So, tablets are obsolete? I keep an 8" tablet for nearly everything around the house, and carry a nice pocketable 5" phone. Would I haul this monster around in a "man bag"? No.
