Huawei unveiled new color options for the powerful premium smartphone, the Huawei P20 Pro, alongside its latest flagship chipset, the Kirin 980, at the ongoing IFA 2018 in Berlin. The Chinese smartphone maker also announced the existence of the Mate 20 series smartphones, including the Mate 20 Lite, the Mate 20, and the Mate 20 Pro.
Huawei had a very exciting lineup of devices. Alongside flagship smartphones and SOC, the company also launched the Huawei AI Cube, an Alexa-powered smart speaker that comes with a 4G router inside. There was a Huawei Global Locater as well. It is a powerful c-IoT geographic location assertion device with a claimed long standby. Despite these interesting devices, the highlight of the presentation was the Huawei P20 and the P20 Pro smartphones, and more notably, the premium color options.

Huawei P20, P20 Pro: New Color Options, Price
The Huawei P20 and the P20 Pro are certainly not newly launched smartphones. They launched earlier this year. However, soon after, they managed to establish themselves as some of the best Android smartphones of 2018. Featuring a Front/back glass and aluminum frame, these devices are not only premium-looking, but also sturdy to use as well by being IP67 dust/water resistant. It was apparent that Huawei has not made any compromises with these devices. The premium smartphones were apparently limiting only in the color options, and Huawei has addressed the same.
Huawei announced the addition of new color options for its flagship P20 and P20 Pro smartphones. The P20 series will now be available in four color options: Morpho Aurora, Pearl White, Golden Brown, and Elegant Black Leather. Consumers in Europe can get the P20 and P20 Pro smartphones in the new colors starting September 5.
