Roughly three weeks after unveiling the pair globally, Huawei has sent out teasers for the India launch of the P20 and P20 Pro smartphones. The Chinese brand has sent out media invites for a launch event it is hosting on April 24, though it does not mention which device will be showcased. However, the tagline on the invite says “See Mooore,” which was the tagline of the P20 and P20 Pro smartphones. The P20 Pro has a triple-rear camera setup as its highlight, while the P20 is its smaller variant with dual rear cameras.(Huawei P20, P20 Pro India Launch on April 24)

There’s not much to gather from the invite, which does not include details such as the timing and venue details of the launch event. India pricing of the two smartphones will be announced at the unveiling. The company had previously only said the phones will be released in India “soon”. The Huawei P20 price has been set at EUR 649 (roughly Rs. 52,200), while the P20 Pro price has been set at EUR 899 (roughly Rs. 72,300).

Huawei P20, P20 Pro specifications and features
Both the Huawei P20 and P20 Pro are dual-SIM smartphones that run EMUI 8.1 based on Android 8.1 Oreo. They also support Google ARCore and a deeply customised Google Assistant. Both smartphones are also powered by the octa-core Huawei HiSilicon Kirin 970 SoC (four Cortex-A73 cores clocked at 2.36GHz and four Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 1.8GHz) complete with a dedicated NPU (neural processing unit). The NPU provides the AI chops to the phone, and is also said to provide up to 60 percent better system response speed, and up to 50 percent smoother operation. It also offers AI-based noise removal on call. The company also touted NPU acceleration for Android Messages, the new Google-made RCS-based default messaging app on the Huawei phones. The Huawei P20 has 4GB of RAM, while the P20 Pro has 6GB RAM. Both have 128GB of inbuilt storage. Both phones come with a 360-degree Face Unlock feature, said to unlock the smartphones in as little as 0.6 seconds.

The Huawei Share 2.0 feature was also launched, for easy sharing between phones and even PCs (Windows and Mac) with up to 96Mbps transfer speeds over Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. Another new feature is the Huawei Phone Clone app, that helps users migrate between smartphones. Also new is the Huawei Health app, which features TruScreen heart rate monitoring, TruSleep technology, and secured fitness data cloud storage. The Huawei PC Mode, similar to the Samsung DeX platform, lets users connect their P20 and P20 Pro smartphones to a monitor to replicate a PC-style experience that helps multi-task, use multiple windows at the same time, apart from emulating a keyboard and touchpad on the smartphone itself. Finally, the P20 and P20 Pro come with wireless Hi-Fi audio, with HWA (Hi-Res Wireless Audio), providing 990Kbps bandwidth over Bluetooth. The company has partnered with audio device manufacturers such as Sennheiser, Audio-Technica, and Onkyo to build the HWA ecosystem. Both smartphones also feature stereo speakers with Dolby Atmos and Dolby AC-4 audio.
