After kicking off 2018 with the P20-series, the time is approaching to introduce the next Huawei’s Mate series phone. Recently the company has filed the trademark application for its next eight generations Mate series flagships names in European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO).
The recent trademark application seems to confirm that Huawei with the Mate series follows the same path as the P-series. This year it was time for the successor of the P10 that was called the P11 for a long time.
Huawei recorded a number of new brand names, including the P20, P30, and P40. In the end, the P11 was not presented but the Huawei P20. It is obvious that the same thing will happen with the Huawei Mate 10 successor. Huawei recorded yesterday not only the Mate 20 name but also the successors with the names Mate 30 to 90.
Huawei Mate 20 is expected to be equipped with its upcoming Kirin 980 processor and could come in two RAM variants with a boasting Internal storage. According to Huawei’s previous Mate phone launch schedule, the Mate 20 could be launched in October.
Huawei 88W charger will be used in flagship devices
Huawei is preparing to change the outlook of chargers for premium devices with 88W chargers and it’s expected that Huawei will adopt this charging protocol in the mainstream for all of its upcoming flagships.
Other than the 88W charger, Huawei will also use a super fast 100W charger for smartphones. However, it’s primarily been used in the Nova series for the past two years.
Looking more into the matter, Huawei also has a 120W charger but there’s no information available about the release. More information reveals that Huawei uses moderate speed charging protocols to ensure safety for consumers and long battery life.
Still, 88W and 100W provide a faster phone charging experience than 66W packed with P50 series and Mate 60 series.
Recently, Huawei certified a new 88W charger through Telecommunication Equipment’s Network Access Management (TENAA) with an 88W output. The listing reveals that the charger has a model number – HW-200440C00 with 4.4A/20VDC = 88W charging capacity.
The charger supports 10W, 40W, and 66W backward charging compatibility. It is manufactured by ASAP Technology (JIANGXI) co. Limited China. Below you can check more information about the charger.
HW-200440C00 supports input: 100-240VAC, 50/60Hz, 2.4A. It outputs: USB-C: 5VDC, 3A or 9VDC, 3A or 10VDC, 4A or 11VDC, 6A MAX or 12VDC, 3A or 15VDC, 3A MAX or 20VDC, 4.4A MAX. If you use USB-A, then it’ll get you an output of 5VDC, 2A or 10VDC, 4A or 11VDC, 6A MAX or 20VDC, 4, 4 A MAX. The charger is only suitable for altitudes of 5000 meters.
Currently, we don’t have any information about its use case but we could assume it packs with Huawei P60 series.

It’s a festive season in China but Huawei is preparing for the next big thing from the P series. Now we have a new Huawei P60 Pro concept render with a periscope camera and curved edge display, which looks cool.
An official Huawei P60 series announcement is yet to come but concept creator HoiINDI continues to bring in a new stack of CAD render to keep us excited about this upcoming.
Let’s dive into the renders.

Huawei P60 Pro is envisioned with a new camera system, which is quite popular in the leaks bytheway. It has a new P40 series with a vertical rectangular camera bump and a large ring in the center.
The camera in the center could be the main sensor and it may be inspired by P50 Pro or the latest Nova devices. Coming the bottom opening, it has a periscope camera, which is seen as a marquee feature for Pro models. However, it may not be the case with the standard, as it relies on optical zoom.
The camera system also has an extra camera on the top alongside an LED flash to capture bright images. The renders show XMAGE branding but Huawei hasn’t used it on Mate 50 Pro, released last year.
Coming to the front side, it has a curved edge display, which is also a Pro model specialty. On the other hand, the Huawei P60 Pro render shows quite slim bezels around the corners, which is also a nice touch to the details.
Overall, this is a good representation of what we will witness but there might be some surprises waiting for us on the other side. To note, these concept renders are compiled with past leaks and rumors and don’t represents the official release.
There are a number of rumored specs sheets and leaks that appeared in front of us but you can check the latest details about the Huawei P60 series in the article linked below.
