Huawei India has suggested that its 2018 flagships — the Huawei P20 and the P20 Pro launched internationally this March in Paris — are headed to India. The company hasn’t yet revealed a date as to when it will be launching the devices in India, but a video tweet on its official India Twitter seems to indicate that the Chinese smartphone giant is priming the market for its flagships. This could also be a way to test how the market is reacting to the phone which has a very high pricing across the world.

Huawei P20 Pro Specifications
