Renders of the alleged Huawei P20 pop up (and are fake)

Renders of the alleged Huawei P20 pop up (and are fake)

UPDATE: Sorry, guys! After further investigation, we found out that the images here are merely fan-made concept renderings. That's not an actual Huawei phone.

Just as 2017 was winding down, we got our first leak involving Huawei's next flagship. Well, flagship trio, to be exact, since — as per the leak — Huawei is prepping three different phones. The “regular” Huawei P20 to be your run-of-the-mill expensive phone, a P20 Plus, which sounds like a phablet variant of the same, and a P20 Pro, which will probably have some hardware bump to cater more towards power users.

While the phones are still shrouded in mystery, there is one curious thing that keeps popping up, rumor after rumor — a triple camera module on the back.

So, why? On the P10, Huawei uses an RGB sensor and a monochrome sensor. The first one is the “primary” unit that takes the actual photos, while the second one assists by gathering extra light and object information. On the Huawei P20, rumors say, we will get some sort of a combined image from the triple camera, which would result in shots with a 40 MP resolution! Not only that, but the phone would be capable of a 5x “hybrid zoom”.

Sketches of the phone have popped up, but now, we have alleged renders of the phone.

Spotted on Chinese social media Weibo by tech blog TechnoCodex, the renders show a phone with minimal bezels and the new 18:9 display aspect ratio. The cameras on the back are in a horizontal line, just like the P20 sketch we've seen in the previous leak. Despite the phone's super-small chin, we still have a tiny pad on the bottom there, which is probably a fingerprint scanner — just like it was shown on the sketches before that.

Of course, take this with a grain of salt, but we definitely are hearing more and more about a triple camera being developed by Huawei and Leica.

They'd definitely move it to the back with it being that thin, atleast I would hope

Well that looks weird, but lets not forget the regular Mate 10. It has a small button as fingerprint reader.

Good thing it's fake. Hope the real thing is more creative than just a v30 with 3 cameras.
