Even though Huawei was present at MWC 2018, it did not announce its flagship smartphones. Instead, the Chinese smartphone maker announced a laptop and MediaPad tablets. Later this month, the company is holding an event on March 27 in Paris, where it will be taking the wraps off the Huawei P20, P20 Lite and P20 Pro smartphones. We have already come across the design and specifications of the upcoming smartphones, and if a new leak is to be believed, some users are likely to be disappointed.

According to a leaked manual obtained by WinFuture, the Huawei P20 and P20 Pro will ditch the microSD card slot for expandable storage. Instead, the tray will only house two nano SIM cards. The hardware feature has been staple on almost all Android smartphones for years, except a few devices such as the Google Pixels. However, the P20 Lite might still retain the microSD card slot.

The leaked manual also confirms that the Huawei P20 will be armed with a 3,400mAh battery, whereas the P20 Pro will come with a 4,000mAh battery. These battery capacities are pretty big compared to Samsung Galaxies or Apple iPhones, the premium smartphones in the market today. Sadly, there is no word on the battery capacity of the Huawei P20 Lite.

The publication also speculates that the P20 Lite might retail for 369 EUR (approximately Rs 29,500), whereas the P20 will retail for 679 EUR (approximately Rs 54,500). The P20 Pro, on the other hand, might set you back by 899 EUR (approximately Rs 72,500). There are also rumors about the special edition Huawei P20 Porsche design smartphone, but pricing details are scare at the moment.

Based on the leaked renders that we have come across, all three smartphones are expected to come with an Apple iPhone X-like notch on the top, and a FullView display. The highlight of Huawei P20 Pro will be its triple camera setup at the back, leaks reveal. But there is no word on the type of setup and what the third camera will do. We will have more clarity when Huawei launches the P20-series smartphones on March 27. Till then, stay tuned.
