CES, one of the world’s biggest tech shows, has not even wrapped up yet, but we’re already seeing a flurry of leaks of a Huawei phone that is not even expected to be launched until March 2018.
It shows that a Huawei handset with model number EML-AL00 — reported previously as one of the three P20 variants — will have a screen with 1,080 x 2,244 or FullHD+ resolution. That means its aspect ratio is 18.7:9. Expect it to be narrower than the Apple iPhone X‘s 19.5:9 display, but a bit wider than the Samsung Galaxy Note 8‘s 18.5:9 screen.
There’s no way of knowing if the reports saying that the smartphone will have a notch are true. But that extra width right there may just mean that yes, we should be seeing an iPhone X- or Essential Phone-like device.
The result shows that one of the three Huawei P20 variants will have an 18.7:9 screen. That unusual aspect ratio could mean that yes, we should be seeing a notch there, just like on the iPhone X- and the Essential Phone.
Anyhow, the test also reveals one other detail: that the Huawei P20 will be running Android 8.0 Oreo. Not a surprise really, considering that the Chinese company’s phones get OS updates early.
A rumor we’d like to see confirmed is the device’s camera system. Will it really have three cameras on the back? Guess we’ll just have to wait and see.
Is the next Huawei P-series going to be an imaging powerhouse? A digital artist at one of the company’s creative agencies added these “PCE Series” ads to their portfolio — claiming 40MP, 3 lens rear (5x hybrid zoom) + 24MP selfie, all Leica-co-developed. pic.twitter.com/t8w3VlL55L
