Huawei P20 goes to Geekbench running Android 8.1

The Huawei P20 code name Emily or EML-L29 took its Kirin 970 chipset for a run in the Geekbench fields. The chip performed as expected and seeing Android 8.1 as the software version was a pleasant surprise.

The Oreo will be topped with EMUI, of course, but Huawei has really made an effort to keep the software fresh recently. 4GB of RAM isnt ideal for a flagship (it matches the P20 Lite) but its not a dealbreaker either.

Anyway, the Kirin chipset and its NPU will power P20s AI-enhanced dual camera. The triple camera (featured oh so often in the teaser campaign) is reserved for the P20 Pro you can see the family portraits here.

The P20 phones will be unveiled in Paris on March 27. The price for the P20 Lite was just confirmed as the phone went on pre-order out of the blue. The rumored price for the Huawei P20 is 670.
