At the end of March, Huawei will present its new P40 smartphone series. There should be a surprising model and more cameras.
The display recess is said to contain two front cameras and a sensor, presumably for unlocking the display by facial recognition. With the P40, three camera sensors can be seen on the back of a rectangular camera module. The P40 Pro will then offer five cameras on the back: main, telephoto, ultra-wide-angle and macro camera as well as a time-of-flight sensor for depth detection.
The P40 and P40 Pro should not only differ in this way. While the P40 should have a 6.2-inch flat display, the 6.7-inch display of the Pro should be rounded on all sides and shine with a refresh rate of 120 Hertz. Surprisingly, the Pro also has a model with a ceramic instead of a glass back.
Little details about the interior
The leaks stop with the hardware, but the rumor mill is bubbling. Believe her, the P40 Pro could break new endurance and charge records with a huge battery. The battery should be a massive 5,500 mAh and can be fully charged in less than 45 minutes using 50 watts. In addition, a Kirin 990 chip and a 5G modem should also be installed in the Huawei Mate 30 Pro.
The software remains a problem child. Due to the still upright US trade ban, the device like the Mate 30 could be used without Google services and apps. The Huawei P40 is supposed to run on Android 10 or EMUI 10, but so far Play Store and Co. may not be officially available on new Huawei smartphones. It remains to be seen whether something will change before the P40 is presented, or whether Huawei will even conjure up its own operating system.
