What to expect
There will be three models in the line up–the P40, P40 Pro and P40 Pro Plus.
Starting with the P40, the device comes with a 6.1-inch display that also houses a 32MP punch-hole selfie camera. Underneath, the device is powered by a Kirin 990 5G chipset.
On the back is a now common oblong camera bump that houses a triple-camera “Leica Ultra Vision” system. This includes a 50MP main shooter, 16MP ultra-wide-angle and an 8MP telephoto camera capable of up to 30x digital zoom.
The phone will come with a 3,800mAh battery that supports Huawei’s 40W SuperCharge fast-charging via USB-C.
Huawei P40 Pro
The P40 Pro purportedly comes with a 6.58-inch display with a dual-punch-hole camera, looking strikingly similar from the front to the Samsung Galaxy S10+. The selfie shooter consists of a 32MP main camera and a depth sensor.
Powering the device is also the Kirin 990 5G chip.
The device will rock quad-cam setup comprising a 50MP main sensor, 40MP ultra-wide-angle shooter, 12MP telephoto and ToF sensor. It is believed that the camera is capable of 50x SuperSensing Zoom.
Moving on, the Pro model runs a 4,200mAh battery that supports 40W fast wired charging as well as wireless SuperCharge up to 40W.
Huawei P40 Pro Plus
Finally, at the very top, the P40 Pro Plus will be the biggest of the lot and will rock a penta-camera setup, claimed to be capable of pushing up to 100x zoom.
All three models’ cameras feature Huawei’s XD Fusion Engine which does AI-powered computational photography, much like Apple’s Deep Fusion feature.
The P40 series will be the world’s first smartphone to feature a quad-curved display.
More details to come.
Stay tuned for 26 March!
