Huawei P20 Might Have An 18.7:9 Display
Huawei will be launching the next iteration of its flagship ‘P’ lineup, expected to be the Huawei P20. There have been plenty of renders that showcase a straightforward design of the Huawei P20 with thin bezels and a tall display. However, a new leak hints at an unusual screen for the upcoming device which sits somewhere between the Galaxy S8 and the iPhone X.
An HTML compliance benchmark recorded the EML-AL00, which is reported to be one of the P20 variants, will have a 2244 x1080 px resolution. That translates to an aspect ratio of 18.7:9 which between Samsung Galaxy S8’s 18.5:9 ratio and iPhone X’s 19.5:9 aspect ratio. There are also rumours about the Huawei P20 sporting a display notch, much like the iPhone X (or this iPhone X clone).
This benchmark could not figure out if there would be a notch or not since there’s no standardised way for websites to detect that yet. A previous render of the Huawei P20 did not reveal a notch on the display but, it would make sense since the P20 could be the furst device from Huawei to take full advantage of the company’s facial recognition technology.
Similar to the iPhone X, Huawei will have to fit a lot of sensors and new hardware in thin bezels, which might be tough to do so.
Recently, a few leaked advertisement designs revealed that an upcoming Huawei device, presumed to be the P11 at that time, will launch with a triple-camera setup on the back. According to the advertisement, the smartphone will have a triple lens rear-facing 40MP camera, 5X hybrid zooming (which uses a digital and optical zoom for better capturing far away objects) and a 24MP front-facing camera.
There is absolutely no word or even a hint that it will be launching the Huawei P20 anytime soon but, with MWC is coming up shortly, we might get a glimpse of what the Huawei P20 will look like.
