Huawei confirmed the existence of its upcoming flagship smartphones, the Mate 20 and the Mate 20 Pro a while back. However the Chinese smartphone giant refrained from mentioning all the details about the specifications and features of the premium Android smartphones. This left smartphone enthusiasts to rely on leaks, reports and videos to gather any relevant information about these high-end devices. There have been a number of such alleged reports that surfaced with regularity which offered several details.
Still, the latest leak indicates Huawei has embedded several high-end features, and some that have never been seen before being used in commercial mobile handsets. The Huawei Mate 20 and the Mate 20 Pro could officially launch on October 16. However, just ahead of the launch, a rather expansive and detailed leak has revealed some cutting-edge and innovative features that the upcoming premium flagship Android smartphones will have.

Apparently, the smartphone will memorize the vocal and speech pattern and use it to for authentication.
The third industry-first feature is the support for nano-SD cards of up to 256GB. Apparently a nano-SD card is a miniaturized version of the micro-SD card.
