Huawei is one device that has not gotten any attention this year as LG G8 and Galaxy S8 has taken over the market.
Although the Huawei P10 and P10 Plus are great smartphones, they didn’t grab as much attention as flagships like the Galaxy S8 and LG G6. That’s something Huawei wants to change with the P20 series.
There’s some confusion around what the P10 successors will be called. It was initially thought they’ll go by the names of P11 and P11 Plus, as that makes the most sense considering the P10’s predecessors were the P9 and P9 Plus. But at a recent event held in Israel, the CEO of a Huawei device importer said the smartphones will actually be called the P20 and P20 Plus.
Huawei trademarked the P20 name back in July. Even so, nothing has been confirmed yet, so things can still go either way — but we’ll refer to the two devices as P20 and P20 Plus in this post.
Both the P20 and P20 Plus should be powered by the Kirin 970 chipset, just like the Mate 10 series.
Huawei might include facial recognition that’s safer than Apple’s Face ID.
The handsets could house a triple-lens 40 MP rear camera setup with 5x hybrid zoom.
Other things we expect to see include 6 or 8 GB of RAM, a microSD card slot, and Android Oreo with Huawei’s EMUI user interface on top. Keeping the headphone jack and adding water resistance would also be a fantastic idea, although nothing has been confirmed yet.
