How about a PC in the pocket? Well, this is true. Huawei might launch a phone with 512GB and this is definitely a huge leap from 256GB that the iPhones X can offer. Of course, that amount of storage is bigger than most models of the MacBook Pro, and this would allow users to download the Facebook app (400MB) more than 1,200 times.

To know more, the Chinese mobile maker would be launching a trio of smartphones, i.e. Huawei P20, P20 Lite, and P20 Pro on March 27 but it is not clear whether the 512GB handset would be a variant of one of the above models or an entirely new phone.

Initially, the upcoming Huawei phone appeared on the Chinese regulatory agency TENAA’s website last month. The latest update to the listing showed that the phone would have 6GB of RAM and of course a massive storage of 512GB. But no matter what, this is not definitely the forthcoming P20, anticipated from the many leaks, although this might be the Porsche version of the P20, which would be certainly more luxurious. Meanwhile, previous reports also suggest that the Huawei P20 Pro is expected to sport a three-camera setup with a 40-megapixel sensor, along with featuring a 6.1-inch OLED panel with a 1080×2240 resolution with 19:9 aspect ratio and a notch, powered by a Kirin 920 processor, backed by Android 8.1 Oreo.

Interestingly, Huawei still does not have its own mobile storage production plants nor does it have the technology to manufacture 512GB memory chips, and thus this leads to the question whether the company is all set to announce the technology. It is also possible that Samsung might supply the chips since last year Samsung had announced to begin the mass production a new 512GB embedded universal flash storage (eUFS) solution.

To look back, Samsung started to make 512GB drives for phones back in December. Thus this implies that the trend of large storage phones has begun. Massive amounts of storage in phones is a lot of fun and will be particularly useful for recording 4K video since every three minutes of 4K footage takes up about 1GB. Also, if ever trapped in a place with no Wi-Fi or books, users would be able to watch the 4K video like a movie marathon.
