Huawei P11 rumoured for MWC 2018 reveal – and this could be its killer feature

Chinese smartphone manufacturer Huawei could unveil its upcoming flagship the Huawei P11 at Mobile World Congress 2018 in February – which just so happens to be where the handset’s predecessor, the P10, was announced last year.

WinFuture‘s Roland Quandt took to Twitter to break the news, writing: “The Huawei P11 seems to be a Q1 2018 thing (again). We were promised exciting new products with a focus on camera and AI for Q1 at a local German Huawei Xmas event.”

One would assume Q1 is referring to Mobile World Congress, because, let’s face it, we’d have heard a lot more about the device if Huawei was planning to showcase it at the Consumer Electronics Show in January – and Quandt seems to think so too.

Furthermore, Bruce Lee, Huawei’s VP of Smartphones, recently said that the firm will “probably” launch all future flagships at Mobile World Congress, so it’s (relatively) safe to say that the P11 will make an appearance at the trade show.

The P11, according to a batch of promotional material uncovered by reliable tipster Evan Blass earlier this month, will ship with a 40MP triple-lens camera, complete with a five-times hybrid zoom. It should also sport a 24MP selfie shooter.

While we’ll have to wait to see how the P11’s camera performs in the real world when we review it, these specs certainly sound impressive on paper and could make the P11 one of the best camera phones on the market come early-2018 – as well as likely constituting the device’s ‘killer feature’, at least when it comes to marketing the handset.

Other notable purported specifications include a 5.8-inch IPS ultra-tall screen (1,440 x 2,960 pixels),  a 3GHz Kirin 970 octa-core processor, 6GB of RAM, 64GB of expandable internal storage and a 3,200mAh non-removable battery.
