Gear Lust – The Huawei P11 smartphone


Some specs

The Huawei P11 camera is going to be insane.

Huawei’s P Series smartphones are its flagship devices, so expect it to use the latest tech. A rumor from June last year suggested the P11 would use the Kirin 970 chip (like the Mate 10 Pro), plus 8GB of RAM. The Kirin processor would bring on-device artificial intelligence to the P11.

The Huawei P11 name

Here’s another weird rumor (which is likely true): the Huawei P11 might carry the P20 moniker instead. During a press conference held in Israel, a licensed importer revealed that Huawei’s next flagship phone will be called the P20 and not the P11.

More proof: last July, Huawei registered the P20 name as a trademark.

Release date

Huawei introduced the P10 and P10 Plus at Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona, so it’s reasonable to expect they will do it again in 2018.

In an Android Central interview last March 2017, Huawei VP Bruce Lee (not the martial arts legend) said they’d “probably” introduce the device at MWC in 2018.

As for the release date, a leaked 2018 Huawei product roadmap reveals that their P series devices will arrive in the second quarter (April to June).
