OnLeaks has just revealed new CAD renders and a 360-degree video of the upcoming Huawei P20 via Tiger Mobiles (following leaks of the P20 Plus and P20 Lite in recent days). As always, the renders and video show off the unannounced device from all sides. The Huawei P20 is expected to be announced in Paris on March 27.
The renders reconfirm the presence of three cameras in a vertical array on the back, along with a front-facing fingerprint scanner and what looks to be a 3.5 mm headphone jack, although, as the site notes, it could also be an IR blaster. Previous renders shared by OnLeaks and Tiger Mobiles had no front-facing fingerprint scanner, with one showing a rear-facing scanner and the other no scanner at all. This may indicate an under-glass scanner could be a possibility in the P20 Plus variant.
While it’s a little hard to make out, the notch is visible at the top of the screen surrounding the earpiece speaker and what looks to be dual front-facing cameras. One of those is rumored to be Huawei’s answer to Apple’s FaceID, something it discussed during the View 10 launch. At the event, Huawei claimed its solution is secure enough for mobile payments and that it can read your face in 0.4 seconds.
There’s not much else to be gleaned from the leak, barring twin speaker grills on the bottom edge, split volume buttons and a “roughly” 5.7-inch display. The CAD measures approximately 149 x 71.3 x 7.5 mm, with a 9.7 mm total thickness including the camera bump. Previously filed FCC documents put the display diagonal at 5.8 to 6.0 inches with a 2,280 x 1,080 resolution, equating to a peculiar 19:9 aspect ratio. With six weeks to go we’re sure to see plenty more of the Huawei P20.
Here’s the previous Huawei P20 Plus video in case you missed it:
