But then, there is still the P37 Pro model of last year. Here you are getting a 5000mAh battery, and there is no official declaration of fast charging. In fact, the phone does not have one.

The outward design of both phone a slightly different, but it is the same design language, and when you look on the inside, well not much have changed either apart from the more recent OS. So, should you border getting the P38 Pro if you currently own the P37 Pro?
