Huawei Mate 20 May Support 20W Fast Wireless Charging: Leak

According to a new leak that surfaced in China, the Huawei Mate 20 could offer the fastest wireless charging out there. The company’s fast wireless charging pad surfaced on Weibo (China’s social network), the Huawei LZ80, and this charger actually supports 20W output, based on the info that is written on it. This charging pad will offer much faster charging compared to what the Samsung Wireless Charger Duo has to offer, as that charger offers a 9W output, while there are a ton of third-party wireless charger which come with 15W support.

Truth be said, this leak does not exactly confirm that the Mate 20 will support such wireless charging, but this is a hint of sorts. It is possible that Huawei plans to release the Mate 20 with 15W wireless fast charging, though, and that this wireless charging is here only for future proofing, but we won’t know for sure until the Mate 20 gets announced. Having said that, the Huawei Mate 20, Mate 20 Pro and Mate 20 Lite are expected to arrive in October, quite probably in the second half of October. The Huawei Mate 20 Lite almost certainly will not support fast wireless charging, and it’s even possible that it won’t support wireless charging at all, as that is the company’s upcoming mid-range smartphone, while the Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro are Huawei’s upcoming flagships.

Both the Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro are expected to support wireless charging, though it’s possible that they’ll support different speeds, who knows. The Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro will be made out of metal and glass, though the two phones will probably look different one compared to the other. Some rumors suggested that the Mate 20 will sport a display notch, while the Mate 20 Pro will ship without it. The Kirin 980 64-bit octa-core processor will fuel the Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro handsets, while both devices, or at least the Mate 20 Pro, will ship with three cameras on the back. Both phones will utilize Leica’s lenses, and they’ll quite probably ship with Android 9 Pie out of the box, with Huawei’s upcoming Emotion UI (EMUI) 9 skin on top of it.
