Huawei P20 3D Render
Update: 10/02/2018: The third and final 3D render of our Huawei 2018 flagship series courtesy of the man, the myth, the legend @onleaks is here and you can see the new Huawei P20 below. As explained below in our earlier render of the P20 Plus, this device has been created with a home button.
Please ensure credit is given to https://www.tigermobiles.com/ for all images and video.
- Dimensions: 149 x 71.3 x 7.5 mm approx (9.7 mm including camera bump)
- Display: roughly 5.7-inch approx (again, hard to tell because of notch and rounded corners)
- The large hole on the top of the device is very likely an IR Blaster, this appears too small to be a headphone jack.

Huawei P20 Plus Leaked Render
Update: 09/02/2018: To follow on from yesterday’s P20 Lite leak we now have a leaked render of the P20 Plus. This render comes courtesy of @onleaks who can reveal that Huawei seems to have tested at least two different P20 and P20 Plus prototypes. One of the key differences was the home button. One prototype of each model had a home button below the screen (not under the screen but a standard physical button below the screen) and the other had no button at all.
Unfortunately, even after days of investigations, it’s impossible to know for sure what will Huawei’s final choice be… therefore this P20 Plus render shows no Home button. We will unveil a P20 with a Home button below the screen shortly so people will be able to see what both P20 and P20 Plus may look like with or without a front home button. Time will tell if neither of them (P20 and P20 Plus) will have that Home button, only one of them, or both…
- Dimensions: 155.3 x 74.2 x 7.7 mm approx (9.8 mm including the camera bump)
- Display: roughly 6-inch approx (again, hard to tell because of rounded corners and notch)
Please note: The larger hole on top edge of the metal frame seems too small to be made for a 3.5mm headphone jack so is very likely an IR blaster.

What We Know So Far About the Huawei P20 Lite, P20 and P20+
Renowned for creating some very high specced phones for very reasonable prices, Huawei are becoming more and more popular. Last year’s flagship phone, the P10 was pretty spiffy (though not quite as great as the Huawei Mate 10 Pro), and this year’s P20 lineup looks set to be absolutely amazing. So what do you have to look forward to?
Caution: Rumour Ahead!
Before we get to details, first a word of caution. We don’t have specific specs and details on the P20 yet but our track record with the iPhone 8 leak proves we’re never too far away from what hits the shelves. Of course, we won’t know everything until the phone is actually released so that naturally means that the below information is based on rumour. Our sources are pretty good, but we’re not making any promises that this is the whole truth and nothing but the truth until we get the P20 in our hands!
Wait, P11? P20? What’s Up With that Name?
Let’s deal with naming issues first. Last year’s flagship was the P10, so logically, this year’s should be the P11, right? Not necessarily. Rumour has it that Huawei might be skipping a few numbers here and going straight for the P20 instead. Whatever name Huawei decides to go for, this phone is going to be a hit.
What Will the P20 Be Like?
Alrighty, we’ve got a few solid rumours to go on here. Up first is the biggest and most exciting of these: the camera set. Word is that the P20 is going to have triple rear cameras. Yep, you read that right. In fact, in cooperation with Leica, Huawei are said to be equipping the P20 with a triple lensed 40 MP rear cam capable of 5x zoom, and a massive 24 MP front cam. If true, this will make the P20 one of the best camera phones on the market.
In design, it looks like the P20 will mimic the iPhone X as much as possible, with a near bezel-less display and that iPhone X notch above the screen to house the camera sensors. In terms of display, we’re likely looking at a screen somewhere around the 5.7-inch mark if Huawei opts to go for the new 18:9 ratio display (which they probably will). And the resolution is likely to be Full HD, so somewhere around the 1800 x 2200 pixel mark (those exact numbers will depend on whether or not the P20 gets that 18:9 display ratio).
Performance looks like it’s going to be very similar to the Huawei Mate Pro line, with that Kirin 970 chip and Neural Processing Unit (which lets the phone anticipate tasks and prepare for them, making it faster). And certainly, this is going to be an Android device, running Oreo out of the box.
Wait, What About the P20+?
If Huawei keeps to the same release schedule as last year, we should be looking at getting a Plus model of the P20 as well. In all likelihood, this will be very similar to the regular P20 with a larger display (6 inches) and better screen resolution (though perhaps not Quad HD). The Plus model could also get larger internal storage, but since Huawei do tend to include SD card slots this might not be the biggest selling point.
Release Date? Price?
For a while there it looked like Huawei were going to release the new P20 at the end of February during the Mobile World Congress. However, Samsung will probably be releasing the new Galaxy S9 at this point, and it’s beginning to look more and more like Huawei are now going to hold off until March to release the P20 to avoid competition.
In terms of price, the P20 should be fairly affordable compared to other flagships. If the release price of the P10 is anything to go by we’re probably looking at around £650 to £700 for the new flagship outright to pair with a SIM only deal and a hundred more or so for the Plus model.
A Brand New Flagship
The newest Huawei flagship should be something pretty special, not just because of its low comparative price point. That camera set could be a game changer. Are these rumours true or not? We’ll just have to wait until release. For once we’re not eagerly anticipating only the flagship Samsung and Apple phones, but also Huawei’s new P20!
