Rather that at MWC 2018, Chinese manufacturer Huawei held a private event today in Paris. The company unveiled its much-anticipated and long-rumored P10 successors part of a new P20 family comprising P20 and P20 Pro. Huawei teased the event many times over recent weeks and sent out event invitations, so we knew it would be happening. And now, the latest Huawei flagship smartphones designed for 2018 are here. Here’s everything to know.
Huawei didn’t announce any smartphones at MWC 2018, perhaps due to the immense competition.

In disappointing news for some of you, the program is shutting down.
Huawei is a formidable Chinese smartphone manufacturer who has been in the news quite a bit thus far in 2018. Earlier this week, the company made headlines again with some big news you may not have expected.
