The next flagship smartphone series of the year is the exciting Huawei P20. The photography-based smartphone is set to launch at the end of this month and as always leaks continue to flow in for the device. Today we see a trio of press renders of the three devices coming in the series.
Huawei P20: Body
The latest leaks are press renders and colour options for all three models, an update to last leaks we saw. The new renders reveal the P20 will be available in black, blue, and pink-gold, a new version of the ever-popular rose gold. The P20 Pro will come in black, blue and “Twilight” – a purplish green colour (we’re so excited for this one). Finally, the P20 Lite will likely be available in your standard black, blue and pink.
Judging from everything we’ve seen so far, Huawei’s P20 and P20 Pro have a distinct hardware design thanks to a matte-metallic back. Its P20 Lite is the only one made up of Huawei’s super-reflective glass. In contrast to its sister devices, the P20 Lite also lacks a Leica-branded dual camera set-up.
Huawei P20: Hardware
The report that shared these images also cites a leaked user manual telling us about battery sizes. The P20 will come with a 3,400mAh battery, the P20 Pro will get a larger 4,000mAh battery and no news on the P20 Lite. The P20 may no longer offer a microSD slot much like the Mate 10, meaning we can say goodbye to hopes of a headphone jack as well.
Huawei P20: Camera
According to the report, the P20 Pro may have a telephoto lens that would be capable of close to 3x hybrid zoom. Other than that, expect the P20 and P20 Pro to have dual cameras with f/1.6 and f/2.4 apertures. The latter could belong to a monochrome sensor. It is also referred to have an infra-red white balance sensor and laser-assisted auto-focus.
Contradictory to the above, Huawei New Zealand has just put up the below video on Twitter that clearly alludes to a triple camera line-up as per early reported rumours.
