We may have been totally wrong about the Huawei P20 Pro

Huawei will formally introduce the P20 Lite, P20, and P20 Pro at a press event that takes place on March 27. And when all is said and done, three Leica-developed cameras at the back are expected to be the latter’s calling card.

The arrangement of the Huawei P20 Pro’s cameras, however, has been largely disputed, despite a recent promo video suggesting the top-shelf phone could feature back-facing lenses aligned horizontally. But what if the clip is a Trojan horse, a deliberate attempt to fool us into thinking we know as much as the company knows?

VentureBeat‘s Evan Blass, who is no stranger to smartphone rumor-mongering from his Twitter account (@evleaks), and is rarely wrong with his information, looks to have settled the issue for now after confirming on social media that the next Huawei flagship stacks its cameras vertically, with one module planted separately, just above the LED flash.

The backing of the P20 Pro appears to be made of glass, with the Huawei branding also positioned vertically on the lower-left corner of the unit. On the front, you’ll find an Apple iPhone X-inspired notched display and a fingerprint reader at the bottom bezel, leaving it looking like a regular smartphone bezel.

Other reports in the past had indicated the fingerprint sensor might be located at the rear for easier access. That doesn’t seem to be the case at this point, which leaves us pondering what else the internet may or may not have guessed correctly.

The Huawei P20 Pro is rumored to land with a €899 (around P58,085 or $1,113) price tag in Europe. It’s all but assured to be the most expensive phone Huawei has ever produced, and will likely go neck-and-neck with Apple and Samsung in the super-premium segment. For the company’s own good, that disputed camera array better be worth the wait and money.
