Last month, a leaked Huawei roadmap for 2018 revealed that the company’s next flagship P series flagship smartphones would be launched as the P20 and P20 Plus. Images allegedly showing schematics of the Huawei P20 family have now surfaced online, once again suggesting the presence of a triple-camera setup at the back. The images show three upcoming P series smartphones – P20, P20 Plus, and P20 Pro.
In terms of design, the P20 and P20 Plus both feature a bezel-less front but still include a physical home button below the display, similar to the standard Mate 10. The P20 Pro, on the other hand, features a notch at the top of the display, not very different from what we see on the Essential Phone and Apple’s iPhone X. Unlike the other two devices, the P20 Pro features no physical home button on the front. Instead, the smartphone is equipped with a circular fingerprint sensor at the rear. The exact display sizes and resolution of the three smartphones haven’t yet been established though.
According to a previous leak, the triple-camera setup on Huawei’s upcoming flagships will offer a maximum resolution of 40-megapixels and up to 5x hybrid zoom. If these images are indeed accurate, the P20 will come with the three camera lenses laid out horizontally, while the P20 Plus and P20 Pro will feature a vertical arrangement.
In terms of specs, rumors suggest the Huawei P20 and P20 Plus smartphones will be running on HiSilicon’s Kirin 970 octa-core 64-bit SoC under the hood. The P20 Pro, however, could be powered by the as-yet-unannounced Kirin 975 SoC. All three models are expected to feature 6GB of RAM for a smooth multitasking experience.
Since Huawei usually debuts its P series smartphones at the Mobile World Congress, we expect the three P20 smartphones to be officially announced at MWC 2018 in Barcelona next month.
