Huawei will be present at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2018 that will be held later this month, but it is unlikely to announce the Huawei P11/P20 series flagship phones. The next-generation P series flagships are rumored to get announced through a dedicated launch event in Europe in April. Around a week ago, reliable tipster Roland Quandt had revealed that the upcoming Huawei P20, P20 Plus and P20 Lite are respectively codenamed as Emily, Charlotte and Anne. Today, the leakster has managed to reveal information like dimensions and some specs through the FCC listing of the Anne handset.
According to FCC ID QISANE-LX1 listing, the Huawei P20 Lite has a model number of ANE-LX1. This very same smartphone was found benchmarked in the HTML5test in the previous month. It had revealed that the handset supports an aspect ratio of 19:9 and a screen resolution of 1,080 x 2,280 pixels. This indicates that the P20 Lite is likely to arrive with an iPhone X-like notch. If the lower specced P20 Lite will be coming with such a design, it is very likely that the Huawei P20 and P20 Plus smartphones will be also sporting the same appearance.
The leaked information from the FCC listing of Huawei P20 Lite has revealed that the handset measures 148 x 70mm. The handset is a bit taller than the iPhone X that measures 143.6 x 70.9 mm. This suggests that the handset may feature a 6-inch display. The rear side of the smartphone features a vertically stacked triple camera setup certified by Leica. It has been also found that the handset is running on Android 8.0 Oreo and it is packed with a 2,900mAh battery with support for 18W charging. Other features that have been revealed through FCC listing are support for microSD card, dual-SIM and Wi-Fi 802.11n.
Huawei had recently showcased its advanced 3D facial recognition technology. Rumors suggest that the upcoming P20 series may feature 3D facial recognition like iPhone X. Hence, there is a possibility that P20 Lite and other P series may lack fingerprint scanner. The flagship P series phones are rumored to feature Kirin 970 chipset and 6 GB of RAM.
As mentioned above, Huawei are unlikely to unveil any new smartphones at MWC 2018. However, the Chinese firm is expected to announce other devices like Huawei MediaPad 5 (2018).
