The new Kirin 970 SoC that will power the P11 and other Huawei phones in 2018 sports a dedicated NPU (Neural Processing Unit), which is partially dedicated to offloading demanding image processing tasks from the CPU. While the date for Easter varies by year, it's generally not later than April, so it makes sense that if Huawei continued to announce its P-series phones in that month it would be hard to start sales before the holiday. The ads center around the phone's camera capabilities and mention some pretty impressive specs like triple lens rear cameras with 40-megapixel pictures, 5x hybrid zooming (which uses digital and optical zoom for better capturing far away objects) and a 24-megapixel selfie camera.
The ads were posted by known mobile tipster Evan Blass, who claims they're from a creative agency that works with Huawei. As always, Leica will be continuing to co-develop the cameras on the Huawei flagship smartphones.
The earlier released Huawei P10 and Huawei Mate 10 featured camera modules developed by Leica. Leaker Evan Blass has gotten his hands on some materials that indicate the Huawei P11 could come with an unprecedented camera setup. Moreover, Pro Night Mode will ensure you "shoot gorgeous night scenes" without a tripod. Additionally, the "Pro AI Camera Assist" will help with "instant scene recognition and auto-framing" to provide users with the best quality images in various conditions.
That seems even more likely when you consider that Huawei's already commissioning promotional posters for the handset. According to Lee, the company is expected to launch all future flagships at the upcoming Mobile World Congress in February-end next year.
