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.

Some details of the Huawei P20, successor to the Huawei P10, has shown up again online — in a benchmark on HTML5Test. Look.

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.
