UPDATE (September 3rd, 2018):
Huawei has now revealed that it has sold over 10 million units of the Huawei P20 and P20 Pro smartphones. Both these devices were unveiled in March 2018 which means it took only five months to reach the impressive milestone.
While making the announcement, Kevin Ho, President of Handset Business, Huawei Consumer Business Group said,
"We are humbled by the reception of our latest flagships among global consumers. By going above the 10-million mark, we have again set ourselves a high bar to clear, but we will treat it as a symbol of encouragement that will fuel us as we continue doing what we do best-putting cutting-edge innovations into the hands of consumers around the world."

As reported earlier the Chinese giant Huawei took the IFA stage to announce four new striking color options of P20 and P20 Pro. The Huawei's Keynote was quite special as the company launched the first 7nm based Kirin 980 chipset, AI Cube smart speakers powered by Alexa.
The P20 will be available in two new colors including Morpho Aurora and Pearl White. The company's latest flagship is now available in four striking colors. Huawei is amongst those OEMs who took inspiration from nature as far as new shades are a concern. Back in 2017, Huawei announced special color variants of P10 series inspired by nature. This year once again the company confirmed the new shades are inspired from Nature.

“The Morpho Aurora was inspired by the Morpho butterfly, while the Pearl White exudes the same elegance as the iridescent mother-of-pearl".
The best thing about the Twilight variant was its ability to change colors at different angles. On first look you may find it blue, at changing angles it will turn into purple and even green at certain angles. The two new color variants also change colors like the Twilight model. The Pearl White variant showcases blue, green, pink and yellow colors at different angles whereas the Morpho changes from blue, deep purple and black.
