A roadmap of what is supposed to come out of Huawei's stables in 2018 has surfaced during one of the presentations by the handset maker's Israeli importer. While we are already aware of the upcoming Mate 10 series, there was a revelation of sorts about the P20 sometime in Q2 2018.

Huawei has been steadily churning out regular hardware upgrades to its smartphone portfolio. As such, the company has piqued everyone's interest as to what's coming up next. We may have an early answer thanks to Electra Consumer Products, a Huawei licensed distributor in Israel. Rami Hazan, CEO of Telecom Division at Electra Consumer Products showed off what could be Huawei's 2018 roadmap while officially launching the Huawei Mate 10 in Israel.

According to the roadmap, Q1 2018 will see Huawei continue expanding the availability of the Mate 10 Pro and Mate 10 Lite worldwide. The slide also shows two new devices codenamed, 'Maya' and 'Salina', which could be low-end or mid-range smartphones. Q1 2018 will also see updated launches of the B618 4G router, the A2 Band wearable, the Huawei 360 camera, and the Huawei Smart Scale. Also, we see that Huawei has lined up an Honor phone for each quarter.

Q2 2018 is where we see the flagship P-series of devices listed. The interesting bit of news comes from Rami Hazan's revelation during the presentation that the successor to the current Huawei P10 would be the Huawei P20 and not the P11 as was thought earlier. The P20 will apparently come in P, Plus, and Lite versions. Since its coming from an official distributor's mouth, the information can be considered semi-official but hopefully, given the few leaks we've seen till now, we will not have to wait too long to know more about the P10 successor. The B525 4G router will also make an appearance in this quarter.

Also noteworthy is that, come Q4 2018, the Mate 10 will get a year-end refresh to make way for the next Mate Pro and Mate Lite. There will apparently be no direct successor to the standard Mate. Electra has not shown any expected pricing or specific launch dates on the slide. While this roadmap could imply worldwide plans, some of the devices could be specific to Israel or the Middle East.
