Huawei is set to unveil its flagship P40 series on March 26th. Due to the coronavirus outbreak, the launch event will happen online instead of Paris. The P40 lineup is expected to arrive in standard, Pro and Pro PE edition variants. A few days ahead of the launch, a leaked teaser poster of the P40 series has surfaced online revealing a triple front camera setup with the hashtag #VisionaryPhotography. Previously, Huawei CEO Richard Yu had said that the P40 series will debut with a new design, upgraded camera, processor and battery life.
The tease poster confirms triple front cameras on the P40 series, however, it is unclear if all the variants from the lineup will be equipped with the same. The camera sensors are located inside a punch-hole cutout at the top left corner of the display. One can expect it to be wider than a dual-punch hole cutout. The teaser image also reveals almost non-existent bezels on the left and right side. Apart from this, the poster doesn’t reveal any more information.
Going by the past leaks and rumours, the Huawei P40 series is expected to sport OLED display with 120Hz refresh rate screen. Both the standard and Pro variants will feature a rectangular shaped rear camera module. The former is expected to house triple sensors while the latter could be equipped with five sensors. The camera configuration on the Pro model is rumoured to consist of a 52MP RYYB lens, 40MP ultrawide Cine RGGB sensor, a telephoto shooter with 3x optical zoom, a dual prism periscope zoom lens with 10x optical zoom and lastly a ToF 3D sensor. The front camera setup on the P40 series is not known yet.
On the hardware front, the Huawei P40 series is expected to house Kirin 990 SoC. It will be available in different RAM and storage configurations up to 12GB and 512GB respectively. The P40 series will feature 5G connectivity with support for dual-mode networks. Both the standard and Pro models were recently certified by Thailand’s NTBC. The smartphones will come with Wi-Fi 6, USB-C and an in-display fingerprint scanner.
