Huawei will be launching the 2018 flagship smartphones on March 27th in Paris. The company will launch the Huawei P20 smartphones instead of Huawei P11 as the successors to last year’s Huawei P10 smartphones. As seen with the earlier launched flagship Huawei smartphones, we also expect to see the Porsche Design limited edition variant of the Huawei P20 on the launch stage. Now, a new Huawei smartphone with the model number ANE-LX1 is certified by FCC.
It is expected to be one of the upcoming Huawei P20 smartphones. This new device measures 140 mm in length and 70 mm in width. From the below image, we can confirm it to feature an all screen display with a notch on the top as seen on the iPhone X. Even the rear camera placement also resembles the iPhone X design with the vertical alignment on the top left corner. Based on the leaks, we might see triple lens camera on the rear.
It will be backed by a 2,900mAh battery that will also support Huawei Super Charge fast charging technology. The same ANE-LX1 smartphone was earlier spotted on HTML5test. The listing revealed the device to run on Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box. Though the screen size is mentioned as 360 x 760 pixels, we will be looking at a 19:9 display with Full HD (2160 x 1o8o pixels) resolution.
While most of the major Android smartphone manufacturers are shifting from 16:9 to 18:9 aspect ratio, only Samsung went ahead with 18.5:9 aspect ratio. However, Apple launched the iPhone X with 19.5:9 aspect ratio. Let’s see, how Huawei manages those few extra pixels on either side of the notch. Coming to the hardware specs, the Huawei P20 will be powered by the Kirin 970 octa-core chipset with a dedicated NPU for AI processing.
Though the company will be launching the 2018 flagship smartphones a month after the MWC 2018, we might see some sort of announcement on the MWC show floor. Stay tuned on PhoneRadar for more details!
