When launched, the Huawei P10 managed to make its way to the hearts of photographers both professional and amateur. Now, one year later, Huawei seems to be gearing up to launch the successor of the Huawei P10.
Meet the Huawei P20
Rumored to be launching at the end of March, the Huawei P20 looks to be a refresh of the Huawei P10. The prototype device that you see in these images looks like Huawei has cut down the bezels to be a lot like the Mate 10 series. The edges of the phone also look like they have no bezel at all.
A touchy subject indeed
The prototype also lacks a physical volume button. We’re not sure if Huawei will stick to that design or not. Located on the right side of the Huawei P20 is a power button and some touch indicators above it. Though we don’t know what they’ll be used for, it looks like a virtual volume key. It also looks like the Huawei P20 would have swipe gestures to control the volume. Something we’ve not seen in a smartphone.
Where the camera section would usually be a different color to the rest of the phone, the camera of the Huawei P20 blends into the handset a lot more. Rounded edges seem to be more rounded as well with the P20 making it more comfortable in hand
Dual speakers: Twice the sound?
The speaker too has undergone a change in placement. Appearing to sport a dual speaker design, the Huawei P20 does have two speaker grills located at the bottom. It could just be that Huawei placed a dual grill to help with the symmetrical design.
Because dual cameras is too mainstream
The camera is the next land of rumors. The Huawei P10 packed a dual camera setup that was certified by Leica. The Huawei P20 seems to be adding one more camera and a new model as well. A regular and a Pro/Plus version of the Huawei P20 is also rumored to be in the works. The purpose of the third camera is also yet to be seen. The prototype device also packs a USB Type-C port and also no headphone jack, following the footsteps of the Huawei Mate 10.
There’s no detail on pricing or the rest of the specifications of the Huawei P20. So for now, we’ll just have to let the rumors do the work till Huawei finally decides to set the record straight.
