We know that Huawei isn’t going to launch its Huawei P20 series devices at the on-going Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. Instead, the company will be launching the devices at a separate launch event on 27th March in Paris, France.
However, ahead of the official announcement, the live images of the Huawei P20 have made its way online. The leaked images reveal the phone’s design and showcase both sides, front as well as back. It appears that the phone comes with metal frame and glass body.
The leaked images reveal that the phone will be featuring a full-screen display with 18:9 aspect ratio. The display takes up the majority area on the front panel. While the phone is rumored to be sporting an iPhone X-like notch, it is not clear from the leaked image. Also, there’s no company or model branding on the front side.
On the back panel, the phone packs three camera sensors and an LED flash. From the top-left corner, two camera sensors are lined horizontally, followed by an LED flash and another camera sensor. The camera lenses come from Leica as the Leica branding is present in the top-right corner.
At the bottom side of the back panel, there’s a Huawei branding. There’s a 3.5mm audio jack present, along with a USB Type-C port for charging and a speaker grille.
Earlier, the phone’s specifications were leaked online, revealing that the triple camera configuration will pack 12MP + 16MP + 16MP shooters with OIS and f/1.8 aperture. At the front, the device packs a single 8MP camera sensor with f/2.0 aperture.
While not yet confirmed, the device is expected to be powered by the company’s latest HiSilicon Kirin 970 processor which comes with a built-in Neural Processing Unit (NPU). According to the company, it brings 25 times performance improvement compared to the previous generation chip.
Along with P20, the company is also expected to launch its bigger variant — Huawei P20 Pro. It is expected to have two models — 6GB RAM with 128GB storage and 8GB RAM with 256GB storage with support for expandable storage up to 256GB.
The previous leak suggested that the Huawei P20 will carry a 3,320mAh battery while the P20 Pro will pack a 4,000mAh battery. Both models are expected to be running Android 8.1 Oreo out-of-the-box with the company’s own EMUI 8.1 on top.
A recent document leak, which seems to be a screenshot of the online retail page from an e-commerce platform suggests that the Huawei P20 Pro could be priced at 5899 Yuan, which roughly converts to $930.
