There are still two months to go for Huawei’s P40 smartphone which is scheduled to launch in March this year. The latest flagship offering will succeed last year’s Huawei P30 series. The Huawei P40 will arrive in standard and Pro variants. The latter has been subject to recent leaks and rumours. Back in December, 91mobiles had shared the first renders of the Huawei P40 series. Now the same publication has shared exclusive renders of the standard P40 giving us a glimpse at the upcoming smartphone. Design-wise, the standard variant looks somewhat identical to the Pro variant.
As seen in the renders, the Huawei P40 features a dual punch-hole cutout at the top left corner for selfie cameras. There is a noticeable space between the two sensors. On the back panel, the smartphone sports vertically stacked triple cameras in a protruding rectangular module at the top left corner. It is accompanied by an LED flash and there is LEICA branding parallel to the sensors. The renders reveal the volume rocker and power buttons on the right side. There is a USB-C port and speaker grill at the bottom.
Huawei P40 and P40 Pro specifications and features
Apart from the renders, there is not much information on the technical specifications of the standard P40 variant. The device is expected to feature a 6.1 to 6.3-inch flat screen, as compared to a larger 6.5-inch curved display on the Pro variant. The camera setup on the P40 will consist of a primary sensor, ultra-wide-angle lens and a ToF sensor. On the other hand, the P40 Pro is rumoured to sport a quad-camera setup with a 64MP main sensor, 20MP ultra-wide-angle lens, 12MP periscope lens with 10x optical zoom, a macro camera and a ToF sensor.
The Huawei P40 series is expected to be powered by the Kirin 990 chipset. The smartphones will run the Android 10-based EMUI 10, but will ship without Google services onboard due to the ongoing Huawei ban in the US.
