Huawei is rumored to debut the P20, P20 Lite and P20 Plus smartphones through a dedicated launch event in the coming month in Paris. In the previous month, a Spanish site had revealed several leaked shots of a prototype of the upcoming P20 Lite smartphone. Today, Android Authority has shared multiple live images of a prototype of Huawei P20.
The Huawei P20 Lite prototype sported an iPhone X-like notch enabled design. Hence, the Huawei P20 that is speculated to feature better specs than the P20 Lite was also expected to feature an iPhone X-style design. However, the images of the prototype of the Huawei P20 have revealed that it won’t be resembling the iPhone X.
The leaked images show that the upper and lower bezels of the P20 are slimmer than the predecessor P10 smartphone. Its sides are almost non-existent. The left edge of the phone is barren whereas the right side features a Power key.
There are no physical volume buttons on the phone. Instead, it seems to feature some sort of touch indicators above the power key that can be swiped up and down for controlling volume.
The back panel does not feature a separate camera housing like the P10. Also, it does not feature the rumored triple lens system. The Leica certified dual camera setup blends with the rear panel of the P20. The edges of the back panel are more rounded than P10 which indicates that the smartphone will offer better grip.
The publication has learned through its source that the P20 may arrive in regular and Pro variants. The regular model may feature dual camera setup whereas the Pro/Plus model may house triple camera module.
As it can be seen in the above images, the bottom edge of the P10 (device placed on the right) features an external speaker, a USB-C port and a 3.5mm audio jack. The prototype of the P20 features a pair of external speakers with a USB-C port placed in between. There is no confirmation on whether the extra speaker is functional. The handset does not feature a 3.5mm audio jack. The source of these photos did not reveal any information on the specs of the phone.
