A report from Korean news outlet The Bell (via Sammobile) says that Samsung Display is currently in the process of producing huge 6.9-inch AMOLED panels for Huawei’s next flagship smartphone, which is likely going to be the Mate 20.

A 6.9-inch screen would put the Mate 20 on borderline tablet territory, and will certainly give it the title of the largest screen seen on a smartphone. While the full technical specs, including resolution, of the panel haven’t been revealed, it’s believed they are flat panels as opposed to curved.
While the idea of a 6.9-inch screen may seem a bit daunting, the phone itself may only be a tiny bit bigger, as Huawei will no doubt opt for a notch design – or maybe even completely edge-to-edge with a clever way of hiding the camera – and may have developed a way of slimming the bezels down to minute proportions.
