For its next flagship, Huawei is sure more than borrowing a leaf from Apple. Yesterday, a FCC listing confirmed that the Huawei P20 Lite will indeed have a notched display like the iPhone X. But it doesn’t end there. The camera setup on the rear is also in the same vertical arrangement as the iPhone X. While most people say it will house three sensors, a new 3D leak shows otherwise.
Popular leaker @OnLeaks has partnered with his friends at TigerMobiles to make 3D renders (and a video) of the upcoming Huawei P20 Lite. Looking at the images, we wouldn’t blame anyone that calls it an iPhone clone.
The Huawei P20 is home to a display that is said to be around 5.7” in size. Thanks to the FCC leak yesterday, we know it has a 19:9 aspect ratio and a 1080 x 2280 resolution.
Unlike the iPhone X which maintains the same bezel thickness all around, the Huawei P20 Lite has a much thicker bottom bezel and a thinnerer one at the top. The notch is home to the earpiece and is flanked on the sides by the front camera and sensor.
On the rear, the Huawei P20 Lite is covered with glass too. The cameras are raised and there are two sensors instead of three. Our guess is that the triple camera system is for the Huawei P20 and Huawei P20 Plus.
Beneath the slightly raised housing is a LED flash and about 2cm to its right is a fingerprint scanner. There is also a Huawei logo at the bottom left corner.
The Huawei P20 Lite is shown to have its SIM tray on the left, volume rockers and power button on the right, a USB-C port, speaker grille, and audio jack at the bottom, and a secondary microphone at the top.
A lot of the specs are still missing but we know it will come with a 2,900mAh battery and run Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box. The dimensions are also listed as 148.6 x 71.2 x 7.4 mm (8.4mm including camera bump).
Tigermobiles says there is a chance that the final device may be slightly different, so this is not a 100% certified look of the Huawei P20 Lite.
