Huawei P40 is one of the most awaited flagship device series expected to launch in 2020. The Chinese technology giant is probably going to release three different models as part of the upcoming premium lineup. These models allegedly include the Huawei P40, Huawei P40 Pro, and the Huawei P40 Lite.
A recent leak claimed that the Huawei P40 Lite would arrive earlier on the market; however, the company has not addressed the leak but has revealed some more details about the flagship.
Huawei P40 – A Better Series
A previous leak suggested that the Huawei P40 is going for a 2020 launch sometime in the first quarter of the year. This rumor has then been confirmed by Richard Yu, Huawei’s Consumer BG CEO, which announced the fact that the flagship is set for release towards the end of March of next year.
Providing users with some insights into the upcoming smartphone lineup, Yu said that both Huawei P40 and the Huawei P40 Pro would pack better imaging capacities, higher performance and also have a never-seen-before design.
The Huawei P40 lineup is confirmed to feature Android 10 and pack an EMUI skin. This puts the lid on some rumors suggesting the HarmonyOS user interface for mobile phones. Moreover, the P40 series will come with Huawei Mobile Services (HMS), in areas where it cannot use Google’s licenses. For a better market reach, the Chinese tech giant is rumored to lead on all the distribution channels and sellers.
Huawei P40 – Under the Hood Specs
The Huawei CEO did not particularly unveil any hardware details of the P40 series. However, recent speculation implies that the smartphone will feature a 6.57-inch AMOLED display, with an FHD or QHD resolution. The panel is an Advanced Horizontal Display, which is said to pack HDR+ certification and a dual punch hole for the selfie camera array.
The upcoming Huawei P40 and the P40 Pro are also rumored to be powered by an octa-core Kirin 990 Soc. Even so, the Lite version, which is said to be released as the revamped and rebranded Nove 6 SE, will probably pack the Kirin 820 chipset.
