Huawei P20 Lite may have been outed by Vodafone Spain (Updated)

VentureBeat

Update (03/07): A handset believed to be the Huawei P20 Lite has been spotted in a listing on Chinese certification website TENAA. The listing was brought to our attention by GSMArena and the information found there backs up much of the previous speculation surrounding the handset.

TENAA indicates the handset would arrive with a 5.84-inch display, Kirin 659 chipset and the same rear-camera setup as had been rumored in the Vodafone Spain leak (below). There are, however, some discrepancies between the speculation. The TENAA listing suggests the P20 Lite’s front camera will come in at 24 MP, up 8 MP on the previous rumor. Further, it points towards a slightly smaller battery at 2,900 mAh (compared to 3,000 mAh).

The info also doesn’t corroborate a significant piece of information from VentureBeat‘s earlier coverage—the presence of an iPhone-like display notch—though that has been speculated elsewhere.

We’re still trying to pick the bones out of this as there are many inconsistencies among all the current speculation. With potentially three new models in the works, though, there’s a greater chance that details are being mixed up or attributed to the wrong variant.

Check out the images below for another glimpse at what may arrive later this month and let us know in the comments what you think of all the rumors.

Core details for the upcoming Huawei P20 Lite may have been accidentally revealed by Vodafone Spain. The carrier appears to have prematurely listed the device in one of its catalogs, according to a report from Engadget Spain (via GSMArena) yesterday.

The catalog suggests the unannounced device will ship with a 5.84-inch display with FHD+ resolution (2220 x 1080 pixels) 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB storage (it’s also likely to house a Kirin 659 chipset, though it isn’t named). The dual rear-cameras are said to come with 16 MP + 2 MP sensors, while the front-facing camera would feature a single 16 MP sensor.

Additionally, the handset is stated to be running Android 8.0 Oreo and powered by a 3,000 mAh battery (notably less than the 3520 mAh battery previously rumored).

Potential price and release date information was also outlined by Vodafone—it’s expected to go on sale for €369 (~$450) SIM-free from March 27 in Black and Blue colors.

Though the speculation conflicts slightly with past reports with regards to the battery capacity and camera setup, this is the most official-looking leak yet and potentially the most accurate. Check out how the rumors are shaping up for the more premium Huawei P20 and P20 Plus at the link, and give us your thoughts on the speculation in the comments.
