Huawei will reportedly host an event on March 27 to unveil the P20 lineup. So far, almost all the specs of the phone has been leaked, but the latest leak undoubtedly is the best of all, revealing the colors that the P20 would be available in.
The latest leaked images via WinFuture’s Roland Quandt show the vibrant colors of the Huawei P20, P20 Pro and P20 Lite. Along with the conventional black and blue, the leaked images also show the P20 Pro in a Twilight shade and Pink Gold color. The leak seems believable as these are high-resolution images, and until now, the Twilight shade and Pink Gold color of the P20 line up have not been seen. Further, the P20 Lite would have a blue model, which according to The Verge “will have a very… I want to say… Winamp skin vibe?”

In addition, the leaked images show the phone from all angles, revealing all the ports and the buttons clearly. Most of the features, such as the high-end display on all three variants is already known, but little details such as the little red accent on the power button for all three models is new. However, the Huawei P10 and the Huawei P10 Plus did carry the same style.
Quandt also revealed more details about the phone such as the display notch would houses 16MP or 24MP cameras, the earpiece, and the proximity and brightness sensors. Further, WinFutures notes that Huawei has scrapped the existing manuals on infrared or laser sensors. This could mean that it won’t sit in the notch. Thus, the face sensor would rely greatly on the front camera.
Further, there are reports that the Huawei P20 Pro would come with a triple rear camera setup. And, WinFuture believes that of all, one camera would be a monochrome sensor. The P20 Pro cameras would come with f/1.6 and f/2.4 aperture respectively. The P20, however, would have f/1.6 aperture and a fixed focal length of 27mm (35mm equivalent). Reports also state that the P20 Pro has a second value for its focal length: 80 mm. It could be a telephoto lens with up to three times magnification. This could mean that the P20 Pro may have a primary RGB rear camera, a monochrome sensor and another camera with a near 3x telephoto lens, according to Xda.
Citing Huawei P20’s manual, WinFuture notes that the main rear cameras would have laser autofocus. Also, the phones will have an infrared-based color temperature sensor, something that has already been seen in the LG G4 and G5. Further, according to WinFuture, there is no mention of the memory card in the user manual. The manual only demonstrates two SIM card slots with no room for expansion.
WinFuture also speculates on the price of the Huawei P20 series, suggesting that the P20 Lite might be available for around $455, whereas the P20 and P20 Pro for $840 and $1,110 respectively. This are surely bold pricing that could pose some challenges for the Chinese brand in the U.S. However, for now, these are mere speculations.
Talking of other specs, Huawei is reportedly using the Kirin 970 CPU in both the P20 and the P20 Pro. It is the same chip that powered the Huawei Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro, as well as the Honor View 10. The internal storage capacity of both phones isn’t known yet. Both the phones carry an aspect ratio of 19:9 and a resolution of 1080 x 2440. Huawei P20 is reportedly backed by a 3400mAh battery, while the P20 Pro consists of a 4,000mAh battery.
Apart from the phone, the Chinese company is also working on a Huawei Watch 3. The original Huawei watch was among the best Android Wear devices in the market. Overall, smartwatches have not been a massive success, contrary to expectations. As a result, companies like Motorola are pulling out of the smartwatch market by reducing their output, notes a separate report from Xda.
IDC, however, believes that smartwatch sales would double by 2021, and the sales have started picking up. As a result, the Huawei Watch 2 tasted some success, and encouraged the company to go for the next version. Speaking to TechRadar, Huawei CEO Richard Yu has confirmed the existence of the Watch 3, but noted that it would not be launched anytime soon. “It will come later – there’s no hurry because Huawei Watch 2 sells well. We’re not in a hurry, so we’re launching the new watch later,” Yu told.
