Serial leaker Evan Blass (@evleaks) is at it again. This time around, he has leaked an image of what is supposedly the Huawei P20.
In his tweet, the image shows the front and the back of the purported P20. Starting with the display side, the image shows a phone that is definitely sporting the 18:9 display-to-body ratio and the fact that the phone will be running Android 8.0 Oreo at launch.
Summarily, the screen looks rather pretty, but Huawei’s decision to mimic the iPhone X and put a notch at the top of the phone is rather odd, especially since that notch has been a sticking point with many iPhone and Android phone users, alike.

Then there’s the back. Right off the bat, you’ll notice that the phone’s main camera array is only sporting two and not three camera sensors as Huawei’s invitation hinted at earlier this month.
This fact alone suggests two possibilities; the first is that the phone is is not the flagship Huawei intended. The second possibility could be that Huawei is following a current trend in the market, where major smartphone brands relegate all its better cameras to a bigger variant of the same phone (case in point, the Samsung Galaxy S9+).
Lest we forget, there’s an eight-second teaser video that still hints at its triple-camera endeavour.
Huawei’s presence at MWC 2018 has been somewhat minimal; with the exception of its Matebook X Pro launch, the company has been gearing up for an independent launch in Paris later next month. It goes without saying that all will be revealed about its flagship phone then.
