Huawei usually introduces its P-series smartphones in the first quarter of the year. So far it has launched P8, P9, and P10 series smartphones under this arrangement. However, it looks this arrangement is going through a major change this year, as there will be no P11 series in 2018. Instead, the Chinese manufacturer might be launching a new P20 series this year, with an innovation of three back-mounted cameras, as earlier suggested by a leak.
According to the new design leak, Huawei will be launching three P20 smartphones this year, namely P20, P20 Plus and P20 Pro. All the three handsets are expected to be coming with three cameras on the back. As earlier suggested by the leaks this camera setup will capable of capturing snaps at 40MP and will feature a hybrid zoom of 5X. This is going to be a great innovation in camera and this feature may outrun other high-end smartphones’ cameras. Apparently, one camera sensor might be used for telephoto, one for wide-angle shooting, while the purpose of third one is still unknown.
Huawei P20 and P20 Plus appear to be having a quite similar design, according to the leaked image. The fingerprint scanner will be on the front. However, triple cameras will be horizontally placed in the P20, while P20 Plus will have a vertically arranged set of triple cameras on the back. A difference in size may also be seen in both devices. Both of the devices will be powered by Kirin 970 processors.
Meanwhile, P20 Pro will have a bigger screen, an iPhone X like notch and a fingerprint scanner on the back. P20 Pro will have a centrally and vertically arranged setup for triple cameras. All three smartphones will have 6 gigs of RAM and least 64GB of internal storage. However, a bonus for the Pro variant is its Kirin 975 processors, which may take artificial intelligence to the next level.
The phones are most likely to be unveiled at MWC 2018, which is due from February 26 to March 1. As Huawei always focus on emerging markets, so we might see the launch of these devices in Pakistan somewhere near the end of the March.
