(Pocket-lint) - Huawei will host an event in Paris next month to launch the Huawei P30 and P30 Pro flagship phones.

It matches previous rumours that the Chinese firm would unveil the new handsets soon after Mobile World Congress - which takes place 25 to 28 February.

Huawei itself let slip its launch intentions, with a small note at the bottom of a Polish press release. It confirmed that the company will "present the latest smartphones in the P series" at a Parisian event in March.

The release was actually to announce new employment figures for its Poland office, so the event announcement was a good spot by Polish website Telix.

Pocket-lint also asked Huawei if the event is, indeed, coming up soon but was told by a spokesperson that there was "no information to share about future launches" at present.

We expect to find out more in the coming weeks, however.

In the meantime, Huawei is hosting a separate event during MWC this month. It is expected to show a foldable phone concept as part of the press conference, but is unlikely to formally announce any new handsets until March.

We will be at Mobile World Congress 2019 in force and will bring you all the news and first impressions live from the show.
