With barely a week left for the launch of the Huawei P20 and P20 Pro, rumors seem to be increasing in frequency. Huawei is scheduled to launch two new variants in its flagship P series at an event in Paris on March 27. And now a report states that the higher variant, the P20 Pro, may come with a 512GB model.
The alleged Huawei P20 Pro was recently spotted on TENAA, with the model number NEO-AL00. According to the listing, the device will come with 512GB of storage and 6GB of RAM. If true, this could be the first ever mass-produced smartphone to come with that hefty a storage. Before launch even the Samsung Galaxy S9+ was once rumored to be equipped with 512GB ROM, but that of course didn’t happen.
Meanwhile, past rumors also suggest that the Huawei P20 Pro could sport a massive 40-megapixel sensor. The smartphone is rumored to sport a triple camera setup, which has also been teased by the company recently. The all-new setup will surely set new camera standards. It is expected that the 40-megapixel sensor will be complemented with an 8-megapixel telephoto lens capable of ‘hybrid zoom’ which will allow 5x magnification. The third in the setup is believed to be a 2-megapixel sensor.
The Huawei P20 Pro is also expected to pack similar capabilities for super slow motion video recording. The feature was spotted in the teardown of the EMUI 8.1 camera app from the P20 and P20 Pro’s firmware files.
Besides that, the smartphone is rumored to be powered by Kirin 970 chipset with 6GB of RAM, and 128GB storage, as per other reports. There could possibly be two variants of the Huawei P20 Pro. The smartphone is also expected to support native face unlock algorithm similar to the iPhone X.
