Huawei is geared up to announce its design and camera-centric P20 series today in India. Last month, the company introduced the trio – P20, P20 Pro, and P20 Lite at an event in Paris. For India though, the Huawei seems to be bringing only the P20 Pro and P20 Lite smartphones. The launch will be livestreamed via Huawei’s social media accounts, including Facebook and Twitter.

The talking point of the P20 Pro is its triple camera setup. Other than the now-standard dual-camera setup, the P20 Pro gets a third sensor for an even enhanced output combined with the power of AI for intelligent scene detection and processing. The P20 Lite, on the other hand, is a toned down version of the premium smartphone. BGR India will be covering the event live. Follow our live blog below for the fresh updates as the Huawei P20 Pro and P20 Lite launch event unfolds at noon.
