Earlier in this month, Huawei had confirmed that it will be launching be keeping a press conference on March 27 in Paris. The launch invitation image did not reveal the name of the product that will be unveiled on the said date, but it hinted that it may debut triple-lens enabled smartphone. By releasing a short video on Saturday, the Chinese manufacturer has confirmed that it will be launching Huawei P20 on March 27. The P20 will be taking on the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S that will be also announced on the same date.
Few months ago, Huawei had trademarked P11 and P20 names. Hence, there was a confusion regarding the name of the next-generation P series smartphone. The below promo video released by Huawei on Feb. 24 confirms the P20 moniker.
The short video that only lasts for 7 seconds has three circles that suggest that it will be coming with a three-camera setup. The other hint in the video is the word “moore” that has extra letters.
The Huawei P20 was recently spotted on TENAA with dual camera setup. Rumors have it that the advanced Huawei P20 Plus/Pro model would be coming with triple camera system. The images of the P20 that has appeared through its TENAA listing show that it will be coming with iPhone X-style notch design. Hence, there is a possibility that the P20 Plus/Pro may also feature the same design.
Huawei was previously rumored to debut the P20 series at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2018. However, since it will be keeping a dedicated launch event in the coming month for P20 series, it only announced the Matebook X Pro laptop and MediaPad M5 tablets at the MWC 2018. By skipping the MWC event and launching the P20 series around a month later, the Chinese manufacturer will be able to fine tune its marketing strategy after checking the reception of the Galaxy S9 and S9+.
The Galaxy S9 duo are not the only rivals for the P20 flagship. Xiaomi will be taking on the Huawei flagship by introducing the Mi MIX 2S on the same date. Do you think that the P20 Plus/Pro will turn out to be a better phone than the Mi MIX 2S? Let us know your thoughts by posting your comments below.
