Huawei is among the biggest names when it comes to the world of smartphone technology. Previously a name known mostly in the Asian markets, Huawei has expanded across the international markets, and has become a global smartphone maker. Their flagship phones of the P-series have been doing really well. While the company launched the Huawei P10 and P10 Plus at the Mobile World Congress in February of this year, early rumors about next years’ Huawei P11 have already begun emerging.
The Huawei P11 is expected to come out into the markets next year around the same time as the Huawei P10 was, this year. At the MWC 2018, expect to see the phone come out with a massive 8GB RAM. The phone is also expected to run on the gen-next Kirin processor from Huawei, the Kirin 970. The processor is expected to be a Snapdragon 835 competitor which would be made using a 10nm manufacturing process.
Huawei is expected to announce this Kirin 970 processor sometime later in this year. In addition to these features, the phone is expected to support a 4K display, along with on-screen buttons. The Huawei P11 is also expected to feature a fingerprint scanner embedded in the display, similar to what we saw on the Samsung Galaxy S8 earlier this year. The phone is expected to run on the Android O Operating System.
Interestingly, the Huawei P11 is not expected to be the first phone to run the Kirin 970 processor. This honor is expected to go to the Huawei Mate 10, which will be coming out around September of this year, probably during the IFA 2017. This will be Huawei’s flagship phablet of the year.
While it is too early to say if these specifications for sure are going to be a part of the Huawei P11, one must take it with a pinch of salt. On another interesting note, a Huawei exec had once dismissed 6GB RAM as ‘psychological support’. Quite an irony when they’ll launch an 8GB phone.
