Huawei is expected to release a device with such a large display in the last quarter of 2018 or the first quarter of 2019. Oppo, another Chinese brand, is reportedly sourcing curved panels from Samsung for its next flagship as well.
The report makes it clear that the 6.9-inch OLED screen from Samsung is to be used in a premium smartphone, not a tablet. For comparison, the display size of Samsung Galaxy Note is equal to 9 of 6.38 inches.
We haven't heard much else about the Mate 20 Pro or the standard Huawei Mate 20 yet, but one early rumor suggests it could have an in-display fingerprint scanner, so that's another way it might stand out.
It is pretty clear that smartphones with a large footprint are here to stay. Also, it is expected to be 0.8 inches larger than the screen of the Huawei P20 Pro. It makes sense as the device could be expensive.
Curious to discover what else will the Mate 20 Pro offer? If the previous generation model is anything to go by, the Mate 20 Pro will arrive with a huge display. As the current P20 series, specifically the P20 Pro featuring a 6.1-inch display, it is logical that the Mate series will see a bump in screen size, taking into account the trendy 18:9 screen ratio.
Presumably, the new gadget will get to 6.9 inch screen.
There's multimedia at the heart of everything: photos and videos are the meat and potatoes of smartphones for most users and Huawei wants to maximize the enjoyment of this content.
