Everything we know about the three new Huawei phones coming to Vodafone
It’s new phone season and we’ve got the release of the Huawei P20, P20 lite and P20 Pro to look forward to at the Huawei press conference in Paris, on Tuesday 27 March.
Huawei has been very secretive about what specs we will see in the new releases but that hasn’t stopped the internet from chattering away with rumours and supposed leaks.
What do we know so far? Well Huawei hasn’t confirmed anything other than the fact that there will be three editions of the P20.
What do we know so far?
What camera will it have? What features? Will it be as good as the iPhone X and Samsung Galaxy S9?
Mutterings on the web from Android Authority and Ubergizmo suggest there will be three camera lens on the rear of the phone. This is a break away from the dual lens feature that is very much on trend right now.
Mobile enthusiasts at TechRadar reckon we can expect a powerful 40MP camera which would blow Sony’s 23MP out of the water.
There are also rumours of Facial ID recognition software. We believe this theory isn’t as far-fetched as the 40MP camera, as this technology is already available in the Honor View 10 which is also manufactured by Huawei.
In terms of processor, operating system and battery, it’s pretty obvious that it will run on the latest version of Android which will be combined with Huawei’s own EMUI interface. We can’t be sure about the processor but we’ve heard the handsets will be powered by a Kirin 970 chip, which will boost AI capabilities for speedy operation.
In the bigger P20 Plus we think there will be a 4,000mAh battery whereas we expect a 3320 mAh battery in the standard P20.
Current Huawei deals
There’s not long to wait until we have concrete information on the new Huawei releases. Although Vodafone has confirmed it plans to stock the new handsets, we still don’t know when it will hit shelves or who else will be selling it.
If you’re chomping at the bit to get a hold of a Huawei phone, Vodafone currently has three in stock – the Huawei P Smart, the flagship Huawei Mate 10 Pro and the Huawei P10./p>
With the mid-range Huawei P Smart you can get a pay-monthly deal from £18 a month with no upfront cost. In exchange for your dosh, you get 250MB of data, 250 minutes and unlimited texts. Not too shabby for such a good quality phone, though you may get frustrated with such a low amount of data to use each month.
Vodafone has a quadruple data offer on at the moment, so if you take advantage of it you could get a 16GB tariff for £30 a month and no upfront cost. The deal comes with a three-month free trial of Secure Net and global roaming.
The Huawei P Smart has a 5.65-inch full HD screen with a dual 13MP and 2MP lens camera and 32GB of storage internally.
Next up is the Huawei Mate 10 Pro, it’s a flagship phone on par with the iPhone 8 or Samsung Galaxy S8 but hasn’t seen anywhere near as much traction.
Deals start at £29 a month with £99 upfront for 500MB of data, 500 minutes and unlimited texts.
4x data deals
Otherwise, you can choose one of Vodafone's other data offers and get 16GB for the price of 4GB. Your purse will be £39 a month lighter each month and there’s a one-off charge of £19 upfront.
The Huawei Mate 10 Pro has a big screen, big camera and big storage. You can watch your favourite shows through a 6-inch borderless screen, take pictures on a dual 20MP and 12MP camera and store all your pictures stress-free with the 128GB of internal storage.
The main criticism of this phone is the lack of headphone jack. This is something Huawei shouldn’t have bothered copying from Apple, as many customers have complained about the inconvenience of using an adapter to listen to music.
Last but not least in our deals list is the Huawei P10, its spec sits midway between the P Smart and Mate 10 Pro, with 64GB of storage, dual 12MP and 20MP camera and a 5.1-inch screen.
Vodafone is selling it for £29 a month with £29 upfront for 1GB of data, with unlimited calls and texts. To get more bang for your buck, the 16GB tariff is £35 a month with nothing to pay upfront.
