As per a report, Huawei has placed an order with Samsung Displays for 6.9-inch AMOLED panels that are intended for devices to be launched in the fourth quarter of 2018 or in early 2019.

Claimed to boast a 6.9-inch display screen, Huawei's Mate 20 could be one of the largest phones released this year. Notably, 6.9 inches is larger enough the dwarf the 6.3-inch display of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.

The Bell doesn't say what Huawei device will get the 6.9-inch screen, but the Huawei Mate 20 Pro might be a candidate.

It's common for flagship smartphones to have displays of over 6-inches but the panels have not yet reached the 7-inch mark which would essentially push them into the tablet territory. That is all that the report reveals about the Mate 20.

The US hosted the World Cup in 1994, while the tournament was held twice in Mexico (1970 and 1986). The US, Mexico and Canada received 134 votes (67 percent) with the Morocco bid earning 65 votes.

Huawei is now one of the leading smartphone manufacturers in its home market, China. The device is tipped to launch late this year or in Q1Y19. It's now the leading brand there, and wants that status quo to continue.

The Huawei Mate 20 may feature the largest screen size amongst high-end flagships. The Mate 10 Pro is hardly a small phone with its 6-inch screen, but if the Mate 20 or whatever the sequel will be called increases this to almost 7 inches, it'll be larger than most other phones available today. As for the specs, we don't know much about the handset right now.

Based on existing reports, the Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro are believed to be announced by the end of October this year. He posted some of the key information about the device. On the camera front, the Mate 20 will come with a dual camera setup on the back with 12-megapixel primary sensor and 20-megapixel secondary sensor.
