- Polish retail site X-Kom has live listings for the Huawei Mate 20 Lite.
- The listing reveals the specs of the device, which match up nicely with the rumors we’ve heard previously.
- The Huawei Mate 20 Lite costs 1,599 Polish złoty (~$436) and comes in either black or blue.
Huawei seems to be sticking to the release strategy of last year’s Huawei Mate 10 line with this year’s Mate 20 line. Just like last year, the Huawei Mate 20 Lite is hitting shelves over a month before the launch of the Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro.
While the Polish retail listings shouldn’t be taken as gospel, it’s pretty likely that the specs, photos, and information about the device are accurate. So don’t think of this as an “official” reveal, but you can very likely bank on the official reveal containing the same information.
With that little disclaimer out of the way, the specs of the Mate 20 Lite line up well with the rumors we’ve reported over the past few weeks. The Mate 20 Lite has a 6.3-inch LCD with a resolution of 2,340 x 1,080 in a 19.5:9 ratio, with a pixel density of 409ppi. That display includes a big ol’ iPhone X-style notch at the top.
Inside, the Mate 20 Lite runs on a Kirin 710 chipset, the first 12nm chipset from Huawei. It features an ARM Mali G5 GPU and is attached to 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. There’s also a microSD slot for expanding on the storage space, although we don’t yet know how much storage it can handle.
Previous rumors suggested the Mate 20 Lite would come with 6GB of storage, but that doesn’t seem to be the case with this listing. However, it might be that there’s a 6GB option that ups the price a bit; we’ll have to wait and see.
On the rear of the device, you’ll find a dual-lens camera setup with a 24MP shooter paired with a 2MP camera. You’ll also find a fingerprint sensor on the back along with the requisite camera flash.
On the front, you’ll find another dual camera setup for taking some high-quality selfies. The front sensors are 20MP and 2 MP, which is almost the same as the rear.
Everything gets powered by a 3,750mAh battery that you can fast-charge with the USB Type-C port on the bottom of the device.
X-Kom lists the device and a free Huawei smart scale at 1,599 Polish złoty (~$436). The Mate 20 Lite comes in blue or black while the smart scale only comes in white. No ship date is listed on X-Kom, but it will probably ship in September at some point.
It’s likely the Huawei Mate 20 Lite will get an official release sometime in the next few days. However, we’ll likely be waiting until October to see the official launch of the Huawei Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro.
