The Chinese tech giant Huawei is all geared up to launch its upcoming flagship smartphone series, i.e., P40, on 26th March. However, Roland Quandt, an infamous leakster, has already published a complete roundup of the specifications we can expect.
Design and Display
Design-wise, both the models are reminiscent of the recently launched Samsung Galaxy S20. The difference between the two is an added rear camera sensor on the Huawei P40 Pro and a curved display (flat display on P40).
The Smartphones will be available in White, Gold, Black, and Silver colors.
Huawei P40 will be the smallest, featuring a 6.1-inch dual punch hole OLED display with 1080p+ resolution. The Huawei P40 Pro, on the other hand, will come with a larger 6.58-inch dual punch hole OLED display with a 90Hz refresh rate and 1200 x 2640 pixels resolution.
Internals and Storage
Internally, both smartphones will be powered by the Kirin 990 5G chipset with 8 GB RAM.
As far as on-board storage is concerned, the Huawei P40 will feature only one variant with 128 GB storage while the P40 Pro will have two variants, i.e., 8GB/128GB and 8GB/256GB.
Both phones will launch with Android 10 and will rely on Huawei’s AppGallery for applications.
The Huawei P40 Pro will come with a quad-sensor rear camera with two RYYB sensors. The primary sensor will be a 50MP “UltraVision” camera with OIS joined by a 40MP RYYB sensor, a 12 MP telephoto module, and a depth sensor. On the front, it will come with a 32MP selfie camera accompanied by a depth sensor and a 3D sensor.
The Pro variant will have the ability to record 4K video with its rear and front cameras. It will also have a SuperSensing zoom feature that will offer up to 50x hybrid zoom.
The Huawei P40 will come with a similar setup. The only difference is that the telephoto sensor goes down to 8 MP, and instead of the telephoto and depth sensor, it will feature a 16 MP ultra-wide sensor. On the front, it ditches the 3D sensor.
Battery and Pricing
The Huawei P40 will pack a 3,800mAh with support for 22.5W fast charging. The Pro version, on the other hand, will come with a 4,200mAh battery supporting SuperCharge.
The pricing details are not known yet. However, it is expected that the Huawei P40 Pro will start at €1,000.
