Huawei is scheduled to launch its latest flagship phone in March, Huawei has summoned press to a launch event in Paris on 27 March, where we'll likely see the launch of the Huawei P20 and P20 Plus. Rumours have it that the smartphone(s) will sport a triple-lens rear-camera set up. Huawei's sent teasers to the press to come and "See Moore with AI", with the three Os all-but-confirming that it's planning to shove a trio of lenses on its upcoming flagships.

These cameras will be developed in partnership with Leica, according to reports, and will allegedly feature 5x Hybrid Zoom, trumping the 2x optical zoom found on Apple's iPhone X.


That ain't all we know about the so-called Huawei P20 and P20 Plus, either.


Earlier rumours claim the P20 Series will ship with the same Kirin 970 processor found inside the Mate 10 Pro. This SoC packs a dedicated Neural Processing Unit (NPU) that allows for native AI processing to be combined with cloud-based AI for an "intelligent" and "personalised" experience.


The report also notes that the Huawei P20 will ship with either Android 8.1 or 8.1 Oreo.


This week, the Huawei P20 also made its first appearance at the FCC, 'confirming' that the smartphone will offer a 2280x1080 display and a 2,900mAh battery.
