In the last three years, Huawei released P8, P9, and P10 series of smartphones, so we’re now expecting the company to introduce a P11 family. However, this might not happen. According to a few leaked images originating from China, Huawei’s next generation P-series handsetsshould be called P20.
Said images show schematics that allegedly reveal the overall design of three new Huawei P20 smartphones – a regular P20, a P20 Plus, and a P20 Pro. Apparently, all three handsets will offer triple rear cameras (though positioned differently). According to a previous report, Huawei’s upcoming triple rear camera will have a resolution of 40 Megapixels, and “5x hybrid zoom” – in theory, this should be a great camera, but it remains to be seen if it can outclass other high-end smartphone cameras.
It looks like the Huawei P20 and P20 Plus will have pretty similar designs, with fingerprint scanners on the front, and triple cameras positioned asymmetrically on the back (horizontally on the P20, and vertically on the P20 Plus). Most probably, the two handsetswill differ in size.
As for the Huawei P20 Pro, this has a higher screen-to-body ratio, a notch à la iPhone X, and a fingerprint scanner on the back, below its centered triple camera.
It’s said that the P20 and P20 Plus will be powered by Kirin 970 processors (just like the already announced Huawei Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro), while the P20 Pro should feature a new and slightly more powerful Kirin 975 processor. All three new handsets should offer 6 GB of RAM, and at least 64 GB of storage space.
Huawei could announce the P20 series at MWC 2018 (February 26 – March 1). We’re looking forward to seeing exactly what the company has in store for us. Until then, we have to keep in mind that the info and the images in this article should be taken with the proverbial grain of salt, as there’s no way to verify their authenticity.
