Huawei could be looking to put an end to the ongoing screen-size battle with the Huawei Mate 20, a handset that’s rumoured to feature a mammoth 6.9-inch AMOLED screen.
South Korean news outlet The Bell has learned that Huawei recently comissioned Samsung’s display-making arm to design and manufacturer a 6.9-inch AMOLED screen for a smartphone it’s hoping to launch in the October to December period.
Since the plus-sized Huawei Mate 10 was announced in October 2017, it makes sense for the new, larger 6.9-inch screen to debut on its successor, the Huawei Mate 20, which is rumoured to hit the shelves around the same time this year.
The introduction of such a large screen should give the Huawei Mate 20 the competitive edge it needs to compete with the onslaught of smartphones due to hit the market at the same time, including the Galaxy Note 9 and iPhone X Plus.

The onslaught of rumours that have been bandied around in recent weeks claim the Galaxy Note 9 has a 6.4-inch screen, while the iPhone X Plus is said to sport a 6.5-inch panel – (if that’s true) giving the Huawei the edge in the size department.
There’s no word on what new features the Huawei Mate 20 will bring to the table, but you can bet your bottom dollar it will bundle a more modern CPU, a bit more RAM and a heftier battery. Oh, and a better camera setup on the front and rear.
