Sales of the Huawei P20 Series has hit the mark of 6 million units worldwide. The new series, which comprises the Huawei P20 Lite, Huawei P20, and Huawei P20 Pro, globally debuted back in March as the successor to last year’s Huawei P10 family. Huawei says that the latest record represents an increase of 81 percent compared to the last year sales of Huawei P10 Series. The Chinese company offers a FullView display and AI-powered camera features along with optics “co-engineered” with lens maker Leica on its latest P-Series models. The handsets also run Android Oreo out of the box. Among other models, the P20 Pro sports a triple rear camera setup.
The new sales figure emerges after the Huawei P20 Lite and P20 Pro launched in India in April. While the Huawei P20 Lite comes with a price tag of Rs. 19,999, the P20 Pro is priced at Rs. 64,999. Both smartphones are exclusively available for purchase through Amazon India.
“We see our success with the Huawei P20 Series demonstrate that we understand our markets, and show our commitment to innovation and R&D,” said Kevin Ho, President of the Handsets Product Line, Huawei. “We see our success with the Huawei P20 Series as encouragement to drive us to continue to excel. Expect to see more from us before the year closes out.”
The dual-SIM (Nano) Huawei P20 Lite, P20, and P20 Pro run EMUI 8.1 based on Android 8.1 Oreo. The smartphones support Google ARCore and come preloaded with Huawei Share 2.0 feature that enables easy sharing between phones and PCs with up to 96Mbps transfer speeds. Also, the new P-Series models have Huawei Health app that has TruSreen heart rate monitoring and TruSleep technology. There are additionally AR-based stickers that mimic Samsung’s AR Emojis.
