The worst thing about smartphone announcements is that there are no more surprises. Nearly all of the information was leaked ahead of time for the iPhone X, Galaxy S9 and now Huawei’s P20 is suffering the same fate. We already have a good idea of what the phone is going to look like – there is a notch and a three camera system. However, the camera isn’t the only triple threat the P20 is featuring.
According to a new leak from VentureBeat’s Evan Blass, Huawei’s P20 flagship will come in three different flavors. The three models Huawei is releasing include the P20 Lite, P20 and P20 Pro. The namesake lets you know where the devices stand. The Lite looks to be the lower-end model, the standard P20 will fall in the middle of the pack while the P20 will carry all the bells and whistles, including the three camera system.

Judging from the image Blass leaked, Huawei seems to have kept the same design elements in all three versions: that is at the notch at the top, a substantial chin lives at the bottom and a vertical dual camera system adorns the back (with the P20 adding the third lens).
The only noticeable difference between the three versions is the Lite’s fingerprint scanner is located on the back, while the other two versions having it located in the bottom chin. Unfortunately, the P20 Lite still has the same size chin, with only Huawei’s logo occupying the space. The P20 Lite also has a slightly bigger notch, but the difference is negligible.
Huawei has an event scheduled for March 27 where it promises we will “see mooore.” That’s a pretty on the nose reminder that we will see three new P20 models and the fist-ever three camera system.
