Serial leakster Evan Blass is at it again, this time spoiling the official unveiling of the Huawei P20 line up. As rumored, the three model range all feature iPhone X-style notches, once the source of ridicule among the Android faithful.

Huawei’s next flagship phones have leaked out courtesy of serial leakster, Evan Blass. Blass tweeted the official press renders for the P20, P20 Lite and the P20 Pro revealing that all of them incorporate an iPhone-style notch. Given that many Android fans took to forums ridiculing the notch on Apple’s iPhone X when it launched, it will be interesting to see the reception towards the P20 range and the myriad of notched Android devices that have surfaced in the past few weeks.

Of the three models, the P20 Pro is the most interesting, particularly from a photographic perspective. It incorporates three rear cameras, with two set up as a duo and a third that is placed separately. According to Blass, the at least one of the rear cameras on the P20 Pro could feature a 40MP sensor along with 5x hybrid zoom and a 24MP front-facing camera for selfies. All of the cameras are said to have been co-developed with Leica. In terms of silicon, both the Pro and standard P20 will receive the company’s top Kirin 970-series processors.

The P20 Lite will pick up mid-range Kirin processor, but will still pack decent overall specs. In addition to its 5.84-inch 1080x2280 19:9 display, it will get a 16MP + 2MP dual rear camera arrangement, but will still pick up the 24MP front-facing camera on the Pro and standard models. All of the new Huawei P20 range will ship with Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box with Huawei’s custom EMUI 8.0 layer atop. Pricing is expected to be announced at the official launch on March 2

I have been tech-obsessed from the time my father introduced me to my first computer, an Apple ][. Since then, I have been particularly interested in all things Apple, but also enjoy exploring and experimenting with any computing platform that I can get my hands on – I am the definitive early adopter! I have always been interested in how we can use technology to shape and improve our lives, most recently using it to record, mix and master my debut record, Acuity – Nature | Nurture.
