The report further adds that Huawei is expected to release the larger display device in the fourth quarter of 2018 or the first quarter of 2019. The panels in question will be flat, not curved.

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.

While the larger display won't be enough to sway iPhone users to switch, it could be a lure for Android fans using other smartphones. If the report is to be true, Huawei will do for display diagonals what it did for rear cameras: push the numbers to a new extreme. Chinese consumers prefer handsets with a large display so this makes sense for Huawei to target the Mate 20 at them. Also, it is expected to be 0.8 inches larger than the screen of the Huawei P20 Pro. Till now, Apple's biggest screen size is that of iPhone 8 Plus which includes a 5.5-inch display.

Speaking on behalf of Bauer Media , general counsel, Adrian Goss, said: "It was important for us to revisit the award of damages. It also reduced Wilson's non-economic losses by 50,000 Australian dollars to 600,000 Australian dollars.

The new phone is likely to be featured for Huawei's flagship Mate series or come in a separate model. "Samsung's upcoming Galaxy Note9 is said to go with a 6.38" panel, and Apple's new big iPhone will have a 6.46" screen.

The Mate 20 Pro will also likely feature minimal bezel, so the overall footprint will probably be a lot smaller than most 7-inch slates. The report notes that the Huawei P20 and P20 Pro phones feature 5.8-inch and 6.1-inch displays, while the Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro have 5.9-inch and 6-inch screens, respectively. The last time we came across a leak about the Mate 20 was back in March this year.

These are just based on speculations and we are yet to know more about the upcoming Huawei flagship smartphones.
