With Huawei delivering arguably the best phone of 2019 with the Huawei P30 Pro, the Chinese company is readying its next flagship device, the P40 Pro, which will be unveiled this year. But what do we know about the device so far?
It’s unlikely that Huawei will make a drastic departure from its current design build of its P-series devices. According to renders and rumours, the Huawei P40 Pro’s biggest change will be on its camera set-up. A popular render based on alleged inside information shows a triple camera on the back housed in a rectangular camera bump in the top left corner – a design that is seemingly shared by all flagships coming in 2020.
However, another rumour suggests that the Huawei P40 Pro will have a penta-lens camera on board, much like that found on the Nokia 9 PureView.
There aren’t much details about the non-Pro, but the rumour mill claims a main and ultrawide camera on the back plus a 3D ToF sensor.
Features & Specs
The Huawei P40 will be powered by the Kirin 990 chipset (probably the 5G variant) and it will run Android 10 with Huawei Mobile Services replacing the Google software. The P40 is expected to have 10GB of RAM, with the Pro iteration housing 12GB of RAM.
The P40 and P40 Pro are set to be unveiled in March. Pre-orders should be available right after the reveal.
Based on previous Huawei pricing patterns, it’s likely that the P40 and P40 Pro will be priced at around R15,000 and R19,000 respectively.
