We all know that Huawei will be announcing its flagship Mate 20, and the Mate 20 Pro smartphones in next month, on October 16. Meanwhile, the company from the past few days has started publishing new teasers, giving us a hint about what the duo could offer. The handsets have already received the prior EEC certification in Russia a few days ago. Well, now the Mate 20 lineup has stopped by China’s TENAA certification authority. The certification reveals the model number of the devices as: HMA-AL00 and HMA-TL00, as rumours were running high earlier.

Additionally, there are two more variants to be in existence as well which may bear model number as: HMA-L09 and HMA-L29. For now, there are no specifications and pictures about the phones revealed by TENAA. If we recall the specifications of the base Mate 20 model, it is rumoured to sport a 6.3-inch AMOLED display with a 2244×1080 pixel resolution. Under the hood, there’s no doubt that both the devices will be equipped by the company’s in-house 7nm Kirin 980 CPU. The Mate 20 may ship with 6GB of RAM along with either 64GB or 128GB storage. On the software front, the handset will be running Android 9 Pie out of the box, with the company’s EMUI user interface.

The imaging aspect of the smartphone will be quite interesting, as it will be offering three cameras at the rear, accompanied by dual-tone LED flash in a square fashion. Possibility is that both the smartphones might come equipped with in-display fingerprint sensor. We also have seen Huawei’s new CP60 wireless charger getting FCC certification a few days ago, referring towards the possibility of the Mate 20 lineup gaining the wireless charging characteristics. A 4200mAh battery is supposed to be fule the Mate 20, which will have fast wired charging and wireless charging support. The phone even will consist of a 3.5mm audio jack on top, a microphone, and a USB Type-C port.

Now that TENAA has certified both these new models, in the upcoming two or three days, it might even reveal the specifications of the smartphones, as such what the phones would be offering. We may also get a glimpse at the handset’s design when the detailed specifications are exposed once. Stay tuned with us to learn more about these smartphones.
