Huawei is expected to launch a tri-camera smartphone — the Huawei P20 — and the P20 Pro in India. The news was almost confirmed in a tweet by the company on its official handle.

The phones were launched last month at an event held at the iconic Grand Palais in Paris last month.

The tweet reads, “Put aside the many for the one that’s here to deliver you all.
#SEEMOOORE #HuaweiP20Series #HuaweiP20Pro” and almost confirms that the phone will be launched in India.

The phones fall under the premium category and carry a price tag of EUR 649 (approx Rs 52,600) for the P20 model while the P20 Pro model comes at a price tag of EUR 899 (approx Rs 72,900) globally. Though there is no official confirmation yet, it is widely speculated the phones will be priced similarly in the Indian markets as well.
