Huawei's alleged 2018 roadmap shows a very busy year
- A leaked roadmap shows all of HUAWEI’s supposed product releases for 2018
- Huawei’s next P series of smartphones looks to be the P20
- If the roadmap is accurate, expect at least 13 HUAWEI and HONOR smartphones
It’s not every day you get to take a peek at what a smartphone manufacturer has up its sleeve for the year, and thanks to what appears to be a leaked image of a roadmap, we might have just seen what Huawei has planned for 2018.
The image comes to us courtesy of Israeli website Gadgety, which reported that Alpha Telecom, a licensed HUAWEI importer, held a launch event for the HUAWEI Mate 10. At the event, Alpha Telecom showed what appears to be HUAWEI’s release plans for next year, which may or may not have been by accident.
Either way, taking a peek at the supposed roadmap shows that HUAWEI will have a very busy first half of 2018. Starting with the first quarter, HUAWEI looks to launch the Mate 10 Pro and Mate 10 Lite, as well as two other smartphones codenamed ‘Maya’ and ‘Salina’. We also see the ‘HONOR 1,’ which is likely a placeholder for HUAWEI sub-brand Honor‘s first smartphone of 2018.
It’s not all about smartphones for the first quarter, however — HUAWEI also looks to release the fitness-focused A2 Band, HUAWEI Scale body scale, HUAWEI 360 Camera, and HUAWEI B618, which might be a wireless router.
Shifting to the second quarter, we see mention of the P, P Plus, and P Lite. Alpha Telecom CEO Rami Hazan said these three phones belong to the P20 series, though HUAWEI has not officially said what the next P series of smartphones will be called.
Remaining in the second quarter, we also see HONOR’s second smartphone and the HUAWEI B525.
The third quarter looks pretty barren, with only HONOR’s third smartphone making its debut. The fourth quarter ramps things up a bit, with the next Mate Pro and Mate Lite debuting alongside HONOR’s fourth smartphone.
Of course, we have to stress that we should take HUAWEI’s supposed roadmap with a grain of salt. Even if the image turns out to be accurate, there is still plenty of time for release plans to change. Either way, we’ll be sure to bring you all of HUAWEI’s announcements as they happen.
