Chinese smartphone maker Huawei recently crossed Apple in global sales to become the world’s second-largest smartphone manufacturer. The top Chinese manufacturer is quietly working on its next flagship scheduled to be announced on MWC 2018 starting from February 2018 as claimed by Roland Quandt. Huawei launches a P-series smartphone in the first quarter of every year followed by the P-line flagship, and at the end, it launches their V-series flagships. According to the naming, the next smartphone will be named the Huawei P11. Let’s see all the rumours and speculations of this device.
According to the realistic renders of the Huawei P11 that has leaked so far, the smartphone will be sporting an iPhone X’s like FullScreen display with an upper fringe but looks wider and taller. It also features a chin bezel below like the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2. The device looks spectacular and may become one of the best-looking smartphones of 2018. As per rumours, the display is a 5.8 inch OLED with a resolution of 3420 X 2160 pixels.

While the top brands are competing to get their hands on the newly announced Snapdragon 845 chipset first, Huawei will put their own Kirin 975 chipset on the device coupled with 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal memory. There will be a circular-shaped fingerprint sensor on the back. Talking about the rear, the device will likely to feature a glass back.
Coming to the optics department, the Huawei P11 may be a game-changer by becoming the first smartphone to contain not one, not two, but three cameras on the rear. This information was leaked earlier this month by a digital artist at one of the company’s creative agencies, which included the promotional materials for their portfolio. However, as soon as it started to get attention, they have been pulled off and are not available in the original location. These three cameras will be made by Leica brand and are rumoured to be a 56 MP, 34 MP and an unknown third camera which will enable 40 MP photos, as well as 5x “hybrid zooming”. This fact is also supported by one of the renders showing 3 camera sensors. The front will be offering a 23 MP front camera supporting 4x optical zoom, face recognition and low light selfies.
A small detail to be noticed the “Huawei PCE Series” branding on the top of the posters which may indicate different naming for the next P series flagship. The device will be running Android 8.0 Oreo and backed by a 4,000 mAh battery with support from wireless charging. According to a report, there will be two variants. The lower variant, the Huawei P11 will be priced at 4299 yuan (Rs 42,000 approx) while the higher Huawei P11 Plus will come with a price tag of 4699 yuan ( Rs 46,000) which is likely an upgradation of internal memory. They will be competing against the upcoming Xiaomi Mi 7, and the Samsung S9 series also speculated to launch early next year.
