Chinese smartphone maker Huawei has been working on its upcoming P20 series flagship smartphones for some time now. The company is unlikely to announce the phones at the MWC 2018 event and these are expected to be announced at a separate launch event later in March. Today, FCC listing has revealed information like dimensions and some specs of the Huawei P20 Lite.
Earlier, some case renders of the Huawei P20 smartphones had surfaced online and now the P20 Lite with the model number ANE-LX1 has been certified by the FCC. The listing reveals that the device will come with a 6-inch display, iPhone X-like top-notch along with IR sensor, vertical rear camera setup, and 148mm height.
Huawei P20 Lite features
According to the FCC listing, the Huawei P20 Lite sports a 6 inch display with an aspect ratio of 18:9. It also reveals that the P20 Lite is likely to come with an iPhone X-like notch. The FCC listing of the Huawei P20 Lite has also revealed that the handset measures 148 x 70mm. So, it will be a bit taller than the iPhone X that measures 143.6 mm in height.
The rear side of the smartphone features a vertically placed triple camera setup certified by Leica. So, if the P20 Lite will be coming with such design, it is very likely that the other phones P20 and P20 Plus will be also sporting the same design.
The listing has also revealed that the handset will run on Android 8.0 Oreo even though earlier reports revealed that the P20 will come with Android 8.1 Oreo with EMIUI 8.1 skinned on top. It will be powered with a 2,900mAh battery with 18W fast charging. Other features that have been revealed are – microSD card support, dual-SIM and Wi-Fi 802.11n.
Huawei had recently showcased its 3D facial recognition technology with the launch of Huawei View 10. Now, it is likely that the upcoming P20 series might also feature this 3D facial recognition like the iPhone X. If we talk about hardware, the flagship P series phones are rumored to be powered by Kirin 970 chipset along with 6GB RAM.
As mentioned above, Huawei is unlikely to launch any new smartphones at MWC 2018, so we have to wait a little longer for the P20 series flagships. However, the Chinese company will make its presence at MWC 2018 and the company is expected to announce other devices like the MediaPad 5 (2018).
