We might only be little over a month away from the expected reveal of Huawei’s five-camera toting, notch-loaded flagship beast, but that doesn’t mean there are no leaks left to squeeze out before the big date.

Although the physical layout of the smartphones remains something of a mystery (leaked ‘schematics’ aside), we’re learning more and more about what’s inside the P20 and P20 Plus, direct sequels to the P10 of last year. Specifically, the battery sizes and display types they’re packing.

According to the kind folks at XDA Developers, the P20 Plus will feature a gigantic 4,000mAh battery, whilst the smaller unit will feature a still respectable 3,200mAh battery unit. Those numbers line up with other Huawei flagships, like the Mate 10 Pro, and would make a significant degree of sense from a manufacturing perspective, offering Huawei a way to cut costs on battery manufacturing.

Elsewhere, the leak suggests that both models will come with an Always-On Display app pre-installed. That’s not a particularly interesting fact on its own, but when you consider that such an app would require an OLED (or OLED variant) screen to function effectively.

Previous leaks have suggested that at least one P20 model will feature an iPhone-X style notch and that non-Lite models would feature a three-camera Leica co-engineered system. We’ve also had word that all models will carry a dual-camera selfie array at the front and both the P20 and P20 Plus will feature the latest HiSilicon Kirin 970 SoC, the very same that powered last year’s flagship Mate series.

Time will tell whether all these leaks pan out, but for now the P20 and P20 Plus are looking to be some of the most exciting flagships of 2018. Keep it locked here at Chinese Smartphones for more!
