This confirms Huawei Mate 20’s new camera array

Lately, there’s been much buzz about the Huawei Mate 20 series of smartphones. Various leaks have been indicating that the Mate 20 series might be adopting a brand new square camera module on the rear and it looks like all of this information could be the real deal.

Huawei has recently shared a new teaser video that hints a square box with rounded edges, which matches the design that was leaked earlier. We already have a sneak peek at the camera setup in leaked images and we can draw a hypothesis that the Mate 20 series will feature a triple camera and a LED flashlight fitted in a cube array.

Apart from the teaser, a set of leaked images of the Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro cases have surfaced online, giving us more insight on both of the flagship devices. 

From the leaked images of the cases as shown above, both the Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro will feature a square cut out hole for the camera. The only difference is the location of the fingerprint scanner. The regular Mate 20 case has an extended hole to accommodate a fingerprint reader while the Mate 20 Pro case does not. Could this actually mean that the Mate 20 Pro will come with an in-display fingerprint scanner like the Mate RS Porsche Edition?

While Huawei did not reveal many details on the Mate 20 series, the company has confirmed that both of the handsets will be running on their latest Kirin 980 processor under the hood.  Both the Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro will also come with AMOLED screens as well as a 3D facial recognition feature.
