A while ago, we reported that the Huawei Mate 20 Lite may have been listed on China’s TENAA certification website with the company’s HiSilicon Kirin 710 processor in tow.
And although the exact model of the chipset wasn’t mentioned in the listing (all speculation was grounded in the specifications of the Kirin 710 inside the Huawei Nova 3i), these alleged benchmark scores posted on GeekBench seem to confirm the inclusion of Huawei’s latest midrange chip.
The single-core results of the Huawei Nova 3i and Mate 20 Lite are identical. However, their multi-core numbers are a bit far off, likely owing to the pre-release software used by the latter.
Based on the GeekBench database, the Huawei Mate 20 Lite unit tested has 4GB of RAM; the TENAA model includes 6GB RAM. Both may be correct, as the phone could launch with different memory configurations depending on the region or country.
Moreover, it’s rumored that the Mate 20 Lite may have one version with an in-display fingerprint scanner and one with the sensor mounted on the back of the handset. It will reportedly be available in black, blue, and gold.
According to the TENAA website, the Huawei Mate 20 Lite will launch with four cameras — two on both sides — and a 6.3-inch, 2,340 x 1,080 screen. The battery may be as high as 3,650mAh, though fast charging isn’t a guarantee. The software will likely be the latest iteration of Huawei’s EMUI Android skin on top of Android 8.1 Oreo.
Given the supposedly higher specs to the Huawei Nova 3i, it’s possible that the Mate 20 Lite will cost a bit more than P15,990 (roughly $300) — if and when it lands in the Philippines at all.
