Huawei P20 Pro gets two stunning new gradient color versions, two models with a leather back
The Huawei P20 Pro is the flagship phone that you have probably never heard of, if you live in the United States, and the phone that you have likely seen in ads and in people's hands pretty much everywhere else.

Huawei's flagship phone features a distinct glass design with a gradient color finish that catches the eye, and now, at IFA 2018, Huawei unveils four new models of the P20 Pro: two different gradient color versions and two versions with a leather back.

Here are all the new finishes:

  • Pearl white glass gradient
  • Aurora glass gradient
  • Black leather back
  • Light Brown leather back

Let's start with the new gradients on the back: you have a new "pearl white" finish and an "aurora" one, and both of them are subtle yet elegant. We are particularly fond of the white version, something that was missing as a color option on the P20 series and it's now available. The aurora finish that we see alongside is very reminiscent to the twilight gradient we saw when the phone launched.

And then there are the leather versions. We are big fans of leather cases, but they add the inevitable bulk to a phone and with a native leather back, you still keep the thinness of the device and maybe even get to use it without an additional case. You get a light brown (that is a bit too light in person) and a black one (with a very nice, saturated black), and the leather on these two is very high quality and adds a bit of warmth to the otherwise industrial, glass and metal design.

Huawei is not yet saying when these new colors are coming and to which markets, but we hope to learn more about that soon.

I don't think leather is the right material to use in a device that gets used all the time I remember the LG g4 with it leather back it was a disaster I just hope this is different because leather is nice material but it just doesn't hold up to wear and tear

Aurora color is stunning just as beautiful as the twilight gradient color. Two new leather colors are very classy.

Huawei P20 Pro have it's power from a Kirin 970 that is on par with SD835 and Exynos 8895, last yeat soc's, from March 2017. Samsung Galaxy S8 line have it. So refreshing the colors and cases, still having an old cpu, is a very good business for Huawei.

And yet they have sold over 10 million of them which is 5X the amount of phones Sony will sell for the whole of 2018.
