Huawei has finally confirmed that the successors of the Huawei P10 and the P10 Plus will be the P20 and the P20 Plus. However, reports suggest that it is unlikely that these phones show up at MWC 2018. Rather, it is expected to be released in a separate event in March. The teaser video of the device suggests a three camera lens. Over the past several years we’ve seen Samsung launching their flagship devices at the MWC and stealing all the limelight. This could be the very reason that Huawei officially confirmed the names of the successors to the Huawei P10 and P10 Plus and choose to skip the unveiling at MWC this year.
The extremely short teaser video shows the Eiffel Tower in Paris with the date “27-03-2018” overlayed, hinting towards a late March release. The video also hints towards the possibility of a three-camera setup on the device and it will be interesting to see what the company can do. This video confirms the location, name and the date that the new flagship from the company is going to be released.
The device is expected to run on the Kirin 970 chipset with a dedicated neural Processing Unit that should make the device AI enabled. Both the devices are expected to have several AI features and we expect the implementation to get better over time as the software learns from the users. It is expected that the device will be launching in a 6GB RAM as well as an 8GB RAM variant. The device will be running on Android Oreo-based custom software and be powered by a 4000mAh battery.
Concrete details on the device are not out yet and we only speculate based on a calculated guess about what the device might come with and other details. It is likely that the company will be giving us few more details on the P20 as well as the P20 Plus a little before the launch on 27th March 2018 at Paris.
