The smartphone will also have a 6.1" diagonal, similar to Apple's larger LCD iPhone, dubbed as the iPhone 9. These leaks follow Ming-Chi Kuo's claims that larger displays will become more popular in 2018. Aspect ratio for the P20 Lite will not follow mainstream devices. Huawei will make the device taller at the expense of width, devoting more area for screen real estate.

Today's FCC post mentions a lot of important details for the Huawei P20 Lite. In addition to the sensor cutout, these also show a stacked dual camera setup, similar to the iPhone X and the rumored Galaxy S9+. However, unlike the latter, Huawei will place the feature at the P20 Lite's top corner. Diagrams for the smartphone give out clear dimensions, including those for the 3D sensor cut out. A lot of rumors believe that we'll get facial recognition from Huawei on the P20 lineup, as the company follows Apple with the feature.

This puts Korean tech giant Samsung in a dilemma. Despite advances in biometrics, Seoul will doggedly focus on the S9 lineup's rear camera specifications this year. Which isn't bad. After all, photography is the one feature which truly sets out high-end devices from the rest. For closest illustration, just take a look at how Xiaomi's Mi Mix2's rear camera performs. Thoughts?
