After showing off its latest mobile processor and a smart speaker-router hybrid that looks just like the Google Home, Huawei left its IFA audience with one more little nugget to chew upon. CEO Richard Yu announced that its upcoming Mate 20 flagship will be unveiled in London on October 16 and sport the just-unveiled Kirin 980 chipset.

We've already caught wind of the Mate 20, with reports indicating the phone will feature a 6.3-inch screen with a smaller notch than phones currently on the market. It'll also purportedly have a large 4,200 mAh battery and three cameras on its back, perhaps similar to the P20 Pro.

In the past, the Mate flagships have been Huawei's offering to US customers -- a way to bring the technology of the P series to America. But given the company's troubles with the States this year, it's hard to tell whether the Mate 20 will be headed here. Yu himself didn't reveal much more, except to talk about how well the P20 series has performed and unveil new color gradient and leather finishes for that handset. Guess we'll just have to wait till October 16 to find out.
