Huawei P20 to be launched instead of the P11
Feels like I am going to fail Math again
Last year Samsung decided to launch the Note 7 instead of the Note 6. OnePlus did not launch a OnePlus 4. HTC One M9 was followed by the HTC 10 and then by the U11. Apple launched the iPhone X. Seems like all companies are trying to rename their offerings to make it a simplified lineup. The latest follower of this trend is supposed to be Huawei, with them launching the Huawei P20 instead of the P11, as a successor to the P10.
The P series usually debuts around March at MWC. Found on Weibo, here are some skeleton sketches of the P20 series
The notable observations show that there will be a triple camera sensor array on the back, and very slim bezels on the front with an 18:9 display. Unlike most current phones, the fingerprint scanner will stay on the front, in a narrower form. These will run on the newly announced Kirin 970 chipset, paired with 6GB RAM.
As always, there’s also a P20 Pro, which will probably sport a slightly overclocked processor (Kirin 975?) with RAM going up to 8Gb. The fingerprint scanner moves to the back. The display also has a notch on the top, thus having a very high screen-to-body ratio.
The P series is their best foot forward for mobile photography, and the partnership with Leica makes it even more exciting.
