It is still not certain if Huawei would name its next-gen P-series smartphone as P20 or P11. There are shreds of evidence backing the existence of both names but let’s just stick with P20 for now. That’s how it was labelled in this latest leak which is that of renders of the P20’s rear case. The leaked case holds some clues about the device.
The major feature that can be spotted on the leaked P20 casing is the unusually wide camera module which is designed in a manner that suggests the rear cameras (yes, rear cameras) will be aligned vertically. Sure there simply can’t be a single shooter mounted on the P20’s back because the P-series is known for its powerful dual cameras co-engineered with Leica. However, in this case, the P20 will likely pack three shooters at its back. This isn’t the first time we are getting this rumour but the casing may have re-ignited such talk.
Another thing we can gather from the leaked protective case is that the P20 features a headphone jack. The case does have an opening for the 3.5mm audio jack which means the device will likely not have a waterproof body like the Mate 10 Pro. The P20 was rumored to launch at MWC 2018 later this February but a recent news revealed that Huawei will hold a special event on March 27 at Paris, France where it would officially unveil the P20 and its variants. Details of the specifications are sketchy but it is expected to pack the latest Kirin 970 AI chip among other features.
