Huawei Mate 20 may feature a 6.9-inch AMOLED display

Samsung is expected to begin the full-scale supply of the ordered OLED panels (how is it different from LCD and AMOLED panels) in the third quarter of 2018. The device is tipped to launch late this year or in Q1Y19.

A 6.9-inch screen would put the Mate 20 on borderline tablet territory, and will certainly give it the title of the largest screen seen on a smartphone. These are meant to be used in a device launching in the fourth quarter of this year or the first quarter of 2019.

Huawei is apparently in the process of designing a new, and very large, smartphone.

Samsung Display is now testing a 6.9-inch OLED screen, the largest it has produced for a smartphone, to supply it for Huawei's upcoming new phone, according to The Bell on June 12.

Although the Mate 20 Pro is not explicitly referenced, considering the wide diagonal of the display and the traditional lineup of Huawei flagships, everything points to the next generation Mate.

Still, a almost 7-inch screen would be huge. The Bell reports that the screen on the upcoming Galaxy Note 9 may be (only) 6.38 inches. Chinese consumers prefer bigger screens on smartphones than people elsewhere, perhaps at least in part because of the large text area occupied by the Chinese characters. We'll know more as 2018 progresses, and also discover whether Huawei is planning to use this screen on a Mate phone, or an entirely new line altogether.

Of course, there's bound to be some high-end improvements to make this rumored Mate 20 Pro easier to use.

If you like the sound of that you've got a few months to wait yet, as we're not expecting the Mate 20 range to launch until October or November.
