Huawei P20's triple camera shows in leaked images, along with a notch-y prototype

We’ve been hearing about Huawei’s upcoming “triple-camera” P20 for a while now, and that it will also come in three versions, including a Lite model, which likely won’t have the fancy camera set of the top-shelf P20. Today, a few leaked images, of an alleged prototype, and case maker renders, flesh out those rumors a bit more, as on one of the sources we see a triple vertically-situated camera, and what seems like a dual LED flash plus a laser focus, while the other makes do with a dual arrangement in a horizontal placement, and a single LED.

Thus, the P20 might have Plus …

Apple vs Samsung vs LG vs Huawei mobile profits are not even close

It ain’t over until the fat lady sings, and she sang over Apple’s record quarterly profit to the tune of a $20 billion fanfare. While that’s not as much as analysts expected, and a bit too close to the $18.4 billion it booked on the wings of the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus upgrades, it is still a record profit in the company’s history… any modern company’s history. 
That chunk of change boosted Apple’s cash hoard to $285 billion, and, now that its overseas holdings can be repatriated with a low tax rate, Apple’s only trouble will be how to spend this on future …

Verizon follows AT&T's move, drops plans to sell the Huawei Mate 10 Pro

Wireless network provider Verizon is not going to sell the upcoming Huawei Mate 10 Pro. This unexpected decision has to do with the U.S. government, according to people familiar with the matter.

Earlier this month, AT&T abandoned plans to offer the Huawei Mate 10 Pro to subscribers after members of the congress, with the help of federal regulators, stood against it. Verizon has been going through the same thing, after dropping plans to sell the Chinese flagship to the U.S. audience. That means only channel left for Huawei to distribute its newest device is …

It appears that Huawei will be one of the few companies to release new Android tablets in the first half of the year. The Chinese giant is ready to unveil one or more slates, but that probably won’t happen until late next month at Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2018.

We reported last month on an Android tablet that Huawei might launch at some point, the MediaPad M5. It looks like the device made it to FCC (Federal Communications Commission), which means it will be introduced pretty soon.

Along with some information about the MediaPad M5’s specs, FCC also listed several pictures of the …
