The Huawei P20 is the latest smartphone flagship on everyone’s radar. Huawei’s flagship opposite to the Mate series is the company’s more consumer-oriented P series. The P20 will be announced in Paris on March 27 alongside the P20 Lite and the P20 Pro.
Today’s leak comes from Roland Quandt, though not via Twitter this time. The report comes from
According to these new renders, the P20 will be available in black, blue, and pink-gold. The P20 Pro will come in black, blue, and “Twilight” – a purplish greenish color and the P20 Lite appears in black, blue, and pink.
While the P20 and P20 Pro have a distinct hardware design with what looks to be a matte-metal finish on the back, the P20 Lite is the only one made up of Huawei’s super-reflective glass that looks pretty when you shine it up against any light. This is reminiscent of the Honor 8 or 9. It’s also worth noting that the P20 Lite doesn’t have a Leica-branded dual camera setup.
The most interesting color so far is Twilight. This one is some kind of mishmash of purple, green, and blue hues into a single color. Perhaps, it is one that changes depending on the ambient light like the Mystichrome Cobra Mustang.
We’ve not seen a phone with such a color-coating before, so it could plausibly be a first – should is turn out to be the case that we're speculating.
The report also cites a leaked user’s manual that the P20 will get a 3,400 mAh battery while the P20 Pro will get a larger 4,000 mAh battery, as big as those on the Huawei Mate 10 (Pro). Likewise, the P20 may no longer offer a microSD slot much like the Mate 10, so that pretty much means we can expect there to be no headphone jack, either.
As for the cameras, the P20 Pro may have a telephoto lens that would be capable of close to 3X hybrid zoom, according to the report. Otherwise, the P20 and P20 Pro will have the dual cameras with f/1.6 and f/2.4 apertures, we’d assume the latter belongs to a monochrome sensor. There is also said to be an infra-red white balance sensor and laser-assisted autofocus.
Finally, the pricing is reported to be EU 370 for the P20 Lite, EU 680 for the P20, and EU900 for the P20 Pro. We’d imagine the third camera has some really cool features considering the much steeper price for it. All will be revealed on March 27.

How is the battery life on the P-series? Is it as good as the Mate-series of phones? Every time I see 4,000 mAh or higher as a spec for a phone, I immediately want it, lol. That Twilight color is sweet. Maybe I'll wait for the Mate 11/20 in Twilight ...
Now it just a history. But I rather buy DSLR than pixel phone. they are only good for camera yet specs are not that awsome. I´d rather buy 2016 flagship phone and DSLR, I guess I can save more and do more with those.
