Huawei is expected to take the wraps off its next-generation flagship offerings, i.e., P20 and P20 Pro. The smartphone will fall in the highly-desirable category and will carry a hefty price tag. Unfortunately, the handsets won’t be available through any significant U.S. carriers or Best Buy.
The U.S. government has reportedly flagged a warning, claiming that the Chinese technology giant has secret ties with its government and operates wirelessly to scour U.S. consumer’s data. “There are fears that Huawei’s phones and networking equipment provide a backdoor connection to servers in China that are owned by that country’s government,” notes the Mobile Indian.
We are not aware of the amount of truth that lies in this matter. However, it does not necessarily make the Huawei P20 and P20 Pro any less desirable.Rumour states that the upcoming Huawei P20 Pro will be seen sporting a triple camera system, supported exclusively by the Leica optics technology.
If reports are believed to be true, then the camera will equip sensors worth of 40-megapixel, 20-megapixel (monochrome) and 8-megapixel (telephoto) each. As far as the aperture is concerned, the camera will extend support for measurements ranging from f/1.6 to f/2.4. Huawei P20 Pro’s front camera system will support a 24-megapixel sensor.
The device will apparently gain its power from the company’s very-own Kirin 970 chipset that offers Neural Processing Units for Artificial Intelligence abilities. On the display front, the P20 Pro is rumoured to support a 6.1-inch AMOLED display with 1,080 x 2,240 pixels resolution and an aspect ratio of 19:9. The smartphone will house a 4,000mAh battery. On the storage front, the device will offer 6GB of RAM along with 128GB of internal storage. They might even extend support for a 256GB of ROM option.
