Leaked photos of rumored Huawei P20 phone suggest it will have a notch

Notch clones are almost becoming routine at this point, and now Huawei might be joining them. The company is expected to announce new phones in Paris on March 27th, and today VentureBeat reporter Evan Blass tweeted new images of the rumored P20 phone.

You’ll notice the device appears to be running Android Oreo, has a dual, rear-facing camera system, and incorporates a notch at the top — a la iPhone X — to achieve a minimal bezel look. The back of the device says “Shirley,” which might be a codename? It’s unclear.

The P20 previously showed up on TENAA, China’s version of the FCC, and looked like what we see above. It was previously reported that the device would have three cameras on the back, but that appears to not be the case.

Huawei’s also expected to announce the P20 Lite and P20 Plus, though, and has released a short teaser video that still fuels that three camera rumor. Maybe one of the other phones will have three cameras. I’d bet it’d be the P20 Plus, if anything.
