Huawei was likely to launch the P20 lineup at the MWC 2018. However, the company has now sent invites for an event on March 27. We have reasons to believe that the Chinese smartphone maker is trying to avoid the competition by choosing this date. As all of us aware, Samsung and HMD Global are releasing new devices at the Mobile World Congress.
The event will be organised in Paris and the phones are speculated to carry a triple rear camera setup. The invitation shows the Eiffel Tower with three circles behind. This could be a foreshadowing gimmick by Huawei. The P8’s invite included two circles and the phone was the first to launch with dual rear cameras. This can very well mean that the speculated P20 and P20 Plus will have a triple camera setup.
The invite also has “See moore with AI” written on the bottom and the phones are likely to have an AI support for object recognition. Both the phones are likely to sport a vertical camera setup, similar to the iPhone X. Together, the three cameras will capture images with a resolution of 40p. They will also carry a support for 5x optical zoom and the front camera is expected to have a 24MP sensor with low-light enhancement.
Previous leaks have also revealed that the phones will carry a new sensor and optics to enhance low-light photography. Along with this, both the phones are likely to feature an iPhone X-like notch and facial recognition feature.
The phones are likely to come with 6.0-inch displays with a resolution of 1080 x 2280p. This means that they can have an aspect ratio of 19:9 and that would be a treat to watch out for. Do you believe these rumours? Let us know in the comments section below.
