Huawei P20 Release Date, Selling price & Specification Rumours
The Huawei P10 is about to be changed with the Huawei P20, aka the Huawei P11. Coming in regular, Additionally and Lite variations the Huawei P20 is most likely to be announced not at MWC 2018 but at a independent occasion in Paris on 27 March.
The new Huawei phone will be offered in a few designs: ‘Emily’, the regular telephone in Ceramic Black/Twilight ‘Charlotte’, a Additionally model in Ceramic Black/Twilight and ‘Anne’, a Lite product in Midnight Black/Klein Blue/Sakura Pink.
The Lite model yesterday handed by way of the FCC with a 6.1in (2280x1080px) 19:nine ‘notch’ display and a 2900mAh battery, and right now has leaked in new photos (through GSMArena).
When is the Huawei P20 release date?
We were being specific the Huawei P20 would be unveiled through Huawei’s MWC 2018 push conference on Sunday 25 February, but the company has thrown us completely off the scent with an invite to a Paris launch occasion for a flagship Huawei telephone on 27 March (demonstrated at the top rated of this webpage).
It reads only: “SEE MOOORE WITH AI.” The triple Os may perhaps allude to the rumoured triple rear digital camera.
From this we are 99 per cent certain that the P20 launch is in March, whilst we will see a little something else from the company in February in Barcelona. Potentials include the Huawei View 3, new MateBook tablets or laptops, or a intelligent speaker – all people else looks to be leaping on that bandwagon so why not Huawei? New mid-array Nova smartphones have also not long ago handed by way of TENAA.
Huawei’s Vice President of Handsets Product Line Bruce Lee has presently confirmed to Android Central that the company will “probably launch gadgets at Cell Globe Congress” as it wants to get the gadgets on-sale by the Easter interval in Western Europe.

How substantially will the Huawei P20 expense in the British isles?
Likely on the £449 price tag tag of the Huawei P9 and the somewhat additional pricey £569 price tag tag of the Huawei P10, we imagine that the Huawei P20 will expense someplace in the array of £550 and £600. When Huawei’s flagship rates were being after aggressive when as opposed to Samsung and Apple, it is slowly altering.
What are the rumoured new options and style and design?
We can just take a seem at sister company Honor’s 2017 flagship, the Honor nine, for an plan of what to expect. The 2016 Honor eight had a extremely equivalent style and design and aspect established to 2017’s Huawei P10, including the dual-digital camera setup on the rear.
With that staying explained, the Honor nine is the 1st Honor telephone to ‘do an Apple’ and clear away the 3.5mm headphone jack from the smartphone, suggesting that it could also be taken off from this year’s Huawei P20. It is a shift that Apple has confronted substantially criticism for, and is a little something that quite a few Android makers have avoided consequently much.
Leaked renders counsel the Huawei P20 will in fact have a few cameras at the rear. As talked about before there may possibly properly be a few designs including a Pro or Additionally product as properly as a Lite model. Slashleaks has obtained what appears like a render of the telephone demonstrating a few cameras on the back again.
Other leaks from the internet site show an additional product with a dual digital camera setup as properly as a ‘notch’ in the display equivalent to the Apple iphone X. A situation for the Lite product also reveals dual cameras and a rear fingerprint scanner but a normal design display.
In a notion video printed in August the Huawei P20 is demonstrated to have a titanium system, a full-display display and an below-glass fingerprint scanner:
However, just like Apple’s Apple iphone X the impending Huawei P20 is imagined to maximise display house on its 6.01in display by replicating Apple’s notch.
While the Apple iphone X has an 19.5:nine display ratio, the Huawei P20 (or at the very least 1 model of it noticed in benchmarks) will have an 18.7:nine display. The telephone in query has a full-Hd display, whilst we are expecting the P20 Additionally to aspect a Quad-Hd display.
We expect it will aspect the 10nm Kirin 970, which is the chip that will aspect in the Mate 10 and is explained to supply 25 moments better CPU efficiency and 50 moments increased electrical power performance.
Huawei leaked the Kirin 970 at IFA 2017 in advance of CEO Richard Yu’s keynote speech where he announced the chip will be within the Mate 10. That telephone will be announced on sixteen October.
We’re assuming that the P20 will get it, as well. The Kirin 970 is an octa-main chip (4×2.4GHz Cortex-A73 and 4×1.8GHz Cortex-A53 cores) with a twelve-main GPU all designed on a 10nm course of action like the Snapdragon 835 co-manufactured with Samsung.
It truly is Huawei’s 1st cell AI computing platform showcasing a focused Neural Processing Device (NPU) and will be open up to developers. The business suggests it will convey ‘AI ordeals to existence and altering the way we interact with our devices’.
When we listen to additional about the Huawei P20, we’ll be positive to update this section.
