New Huawei P20 live images leaked sans the headphone jack

The P20 series will be officially announced on March 27 at a dedicated product launch event in Paris, France, the clip seen below states, confirming the objective of the happening Huawei first mentioned in late January. It won't be the Huawei P12 as early speculated as the top Chinese OEM chose to skip the number and move to 20.

Last week, some early renders of the Huawei P20 emerged online, alongside the renders showing the Huawei P20 Plus and Huawei P20 Lite.

We've already highlighted the winning features of the smartphone - from its tri-camera setup on the rear to the iPhone X-style notch at the front. The Huawei P20 Lite was sighted in the wild after being listed on the FCC with a 19:9 display and 2900mAh battery. The display is nearly bezel-less.

This prototype doesn't have a physical volume button. It does, however, have a power button on the side that has "indicator lights" above it. Now the camera surround blends into the handset a lot more, though it's still noticeable. The triple rear camera system doesn't seem to be available here either. Expected to be the face of the Chinese tech giant in the western markets, some interesting facts about the Huawei P20 have surfaced as the launch date gets closer.

The fingerprint scanner will stay below the screen like in the predecessor Huawei P10. It's not entirely clear whether there are going to be dual speakers, but that's definitely another speaker grill at the bottom. The headphone jack is not the only thing missing. The latest report from XDA reveals that on the software side, you can expect Huawei to pack nothing but the latest that Google has to offer. The three Os in the tagline of the promo and the fact that they're presented in the form of images essentially confirms recent rumors about the P20 boasting a triple-camera setup on its rear panel, whereas the rest of the message clearly implies the camera software of the device will once again be powered by AI technologies, as was the case with the Mate 10 lineup introduced previous year.
