Huawei's 2018 has been off to a rough start. The Mate 10 is a truly excellent device, but despite its greatness, won't be heading to U.S. carriers as originally planned due to pressure from the United States government. This came as a pretty big blow to the company, but it's aiming to redeem itself in just a couple months with its next phone – the P20.

Press invitations have been sent out from Huawei for an event that'll take place in Paris on March 27, and although the Huawei P20 isn't specifically mentioned in these, the "new flagship devices" are clearly going to be the P20 family.

The date is also about a month after the 2018 Mobile World Congress trade show. Huawei first showed off the Huawei P10 family at the 2017 MWC event but it looks like the company wants to delay the launch of the P20 models by a few weeks, perhaps because Huawei doesn’t want to compete with the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S9 lineup.

Unconfirmed rumors about the P20 include larger displays for the main phone and the P20 Plus, along with a third Huawei P20 Pro model. Both the P20 and P20 Plus are expected to have Huawei’s latest in-house Kirin 970 chipset inside. A recent rumor claims that the high-end phones could have Leica’s camera sensors, including a triple lens 40 MP rear camera setup with 5x hybrid zoom, along with a huge 24 MP front-facing camera.
