Shameless iPhone X-inspired notch to be on Huawei’s P20

Random brands from Asia aren’t alone in their interest to copy Apple’s iPhone X. The most popular phone to borrow from the groundbreaking mobile device will come from Huawei, according to Evan Blass’ latest leak.

The mobile industry insider took to Twitter to reveal an image of the P20. Since the Mate 10 Pro is out on the market now, the Chinese company can focus on its other premium line of hardware. And it seems that the P20 will have at least two features Apple heavily pushes on the most advanced iPhone ever made.

Here’s the leaked image from earlier:

In the leak, we see the P20 from both the front and the back. Up front is an edge-to-edge display, but Huawei does still have the fingerprint scanner there as well. Apple’s removed it entirely and others have opted for a relocation. What’s a clear steal from the iPhone X is the notch at the top of the display, where the front-facing camera and sensors are housed.

Huawei isn’t going to stop there. The back of this alleged P20 has a dual-camera setup. That’s not a problem, but it’s vertically-aligned just like the iPhone X’s. If there’s any positive to share, it’s the two-tone LED flash being placed below the cameras.

As a whole, the P20 does heavily resemble Apple’s flagship. And that’s not a good thing. People are already roasting Huawei on social media before the company even makes an announcement.

Expect to see the P20 debut next month. Huawei recently sent out invites for the launch event taking place in Paris on Tuesday, March 27.
