Huawei P11 design and show
Little is understood for sure concerning the Huawei P11 in the meanwhile, however we’ve heard a wide range of rumors concerning the gadget.
Each the Honor 8 and Huawei P10 had very comparable design and options, but it surely’s unlikely the newly launched Honor 9 with its shiny glass again impact will make Huawei change from the P11’s anticipated metallic primarily based design.
The cutout on the prime of the Huawei P11 display is referenced as a ‘notch’ inside the system construct and an instance of the way it’s set to look suggests it might simply home the front-facing digicam.
There’s additionally phrase from that supply which suggests the Huawei P11 will ship with a 4K show. That is unlikely contemplating Huawei has continued to make use of Full HD panels in its telephones up till now, however it might be attention-grabbing to see the corporate make a tool to maintain tempo with the Sony Xperia XZ Premium.
Huawei P11 digicam
We have solely heard one leak concerning the Huawei P11 digicam but it surely suggests the Lecia partnership is about to proceed and there can be some large modifications to each the entrance and rear snappers.
Pictures from a digital artist that works with Huawei – and noticed by Evleaks – counsel the telephone is about to come back with three lenses on the rear digicam for the primary time and a kind of could also be as excessive as 40MP. That additionally appears to be like like will probably be able to 5x hybrid zoom.

Huawei P11 energy
Often Huawei debuts the brand new chipset tech on the Mate line and brings it to the P gadget later, so we count on that to occur once more for the Huawei P11.

Huawei P11: what we wish to see
Though rumors and leaks are skinny on the bottom in the meanwhile, we have put collectively a listing of the issues we would prefer to see Huawei improved for the P11. This is every thing we’ve our fingers crossed to see on the Huawei P11.
1. A voice assistant
The Huawei P10 did not include a simple to make use of voice assistant. Amazon Alexa is obtainable on the Huawei Mate 9 within the US, however not on the P10, and at the moment Google Assistant is not obtainable for the Huawei P10 both.
The shortage of Google Assistant is a disgrace, however Huawei is aiming to get Google’s helper onto the telephone at a later date. We hope Huawei settles on what voice assistant ought to be used on the Huawei P11, and that it launches with one on day one.
2. Higher battery life
One in every of our predominant criticisms of the Huawei P10 was the poor battery life.
We discovered it to be a contact worse than the Huawei P9 that went earlier than it, so we hope that Huawei places numerous effort in to extend the battery life on the Huawei P11.
three. A greater USP
Maybe the most important drawback with the Huawei P10 was the shortage of a giant promoting level. There is no explicit motive to purchase this telephone – it is simply all spherical a superb handset, and we would prefer to see an improved USP prepared for the P11.
What precisely that ought to be, we’re not completely sure. Hopefully Huawei has one thing up its sleeve to assist deal with the massive promoting options that different corporations similar to Samsung and Apple provide.
four. Cheaper price
Huawei has been steadily growing its costs for the previous few years and the P10 is likely one of the costliest telephones the corporate has made.
We hope that for the Huawei P11 the corporate decides to drop the worth down slightly, to make it a extra appetizing purchase in comparison with the opposite flagship units available on the market.
5. Google Daydream help
The Huawei P10 does not work with a digital actuality headset, so we hope the subsequent telephone from Huawei can be part of Google’s Daydream program and join with the Google Daydream View headset.
Huawei has beforehand confirmed it is engaged on a digital actuality headset too, however there’s been no official announcement thus far on the place the headset is in manufacturing.
6. A US launch
That is a reasonably easy one, but it surely’s a giant disgrace the Huawei P10 by no means formally launched within the US and we would prefer to see that be a precedence for the P11. We all know there are a lot of individuals within the US wanting ahead to utilizing a Huawei telephone, so why not provide the flagship to them?
