Apart from the number of camera sensors, not much is known about the camera on the phones, for example, resolution, autofocus type, and aperture. All the P20 phones will come with Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box, and the company has even rolled out the Oreo update to a few older devices. The phones are expected to use Huawei’s own Kirin 970 chipset which focusses on artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) capabilities. It is also being rumoured that Huawei has ditched the 3.5mm audio jack for these phones, and that it is going to use USB Type-C port. The P20 series will face fierce competition from the newly announced Galaxy S9/S9+ as well as the upcoming phones like the LG G7Mi 7, and the OnePlus 6.
