Huawei launches new P20 smartphone series

Huawei has revealed its new lineup of P-Series flagship smartphones at a launch event in Paris.

The new smartphone range comprises the Huawei P20, P20 Pro, and P20 Lite.

Huawei’s P20 series showcases bold new design features, including bezel-less, notched displays, and a triple-lens camera on the P20 Pro.

Huawei said its new devices are designed to deliver professional photography features in a smartphone, and all P20 series phones sport high-resolution front cameras in addition to improved rear camera systems.

The P20 Pro’s camera features 3x optical zoom, 5x hybrid zoom, and “best-in-class” 10x digital zoom.

The device’s camera also includes zero shutter lag and intelligent motion detection, said Huawei.

“With the Huawei P20 and P20 Pro, anyone can take professional pictures on their smartphone,” said Huawei Consumer CEO Richard Yu.


The Huawei P20 Pro boasts a 6.1-inch AMOLED display, 6GB of RAM, and a 4,000mAh battery.

Huawei’s Kirin 970 processor with integrated AI features powers this device and aids in processing of images taken with its triple-lens camera.

The Huawei P20 sports an extended, bezel-less RGBW display and a Leica dual-lens camera system.

Both devices have a 24MP front-facing camera and will be available in four colours, said Huawei – Twilight, Pink Gold, Midnight Blue, and Black.

Huawei said South Africa would be part of the initial launch wave for the Huawei P20 and P20 Pro.


The Huawei P20 and P20 Pro are available at the following prices from local online retailer Technomobi.
