Huawei has baked another debut of the P40 lineup. The lineup is having a bad time staying under the bed. It is sneaking out of it to show up among the other flagship series. The wrapped phones are going to wage colossal competition to new phones like the Samsung Galaxy S20 family as well as the rumored iPhone 12. It’ll be exciting to see what the company includes in 2020.
Remarkably, Huawei is set to unveil the P40 series on 26th March, 2020. Huawei CEO Richard Yu claimed the P40 Pro and Premium edition would be the “world’s most powerful 5G flagship.” The Huawei P30 and P30 Pro were some of our favorite flagship from 2019. It had peculiar assets to top among the industries, such as 5x optical zoom Periscope lens and great software. That will likely include some innovative specs to the Huawei P40 series in a similar way to how the Huawei P30 impacted.
The company proposed a planning of a physical launch event in Paris. But due to the fear of COVID-19 outbreak, Huawei P40 will be presented via live streaming.
As days passed, so many renders came out to talk about the P40 series. We’ve heard the Huawei P40 will have a 6.1-inch screen while the P40 Pro will bump that up to 6.58 inches across and the max variant, P40 Pro will be designed with large screen support of 6.7inches+ QHD panel. Renders rumored that all phones will have AMOLED in their display. P40 will come with a flat design while P40 Pro and P40 Pro Premium will be designed in a curved display setup which makes the pro variants more prevailing and promising. All phones will have 120Hz refresh rate and HDR 10+ support. Seeing as the display, there’s an optical fingerprint reader baked into the display. Moreover, the devices are to be assured with IP68 dust/water resistant (up to 2m for 30 mins).
All three devices will sport Huawei’s latest in-house HiSilicon Kirin 990 chipset, based on 2.86 Octa core processor and Mali-G76 GPU system. A leaked Geekbench score sheet from the other day confirmed the Kirin 990 SoC on the P40 series and the accompanying 8GB of RAM. Though, the pro variants will be offering more RAM, such as 12gigs of RAM and 512GB storage support. All phones will come with UFS 3.0 support. And firmly, they will be directly produced on Android’s latest version 10 and based on EMUI 10 operating system.
A massive leak has been revealed about the P40 family. Huawei’s smartphones are noted for their rear camera arrays. The series will offer three significant devices likely P40 also known as Vanilla with triple camera array, P40 Pro with quad camera setup and P40 Pro Premium Edition with Penta rectangular module which is the highest sibling of the family. Chiefly, Huawei P40 cameras on the front also allows for competition-crushing pictures, and the best way for Huawei to achieve this would be by having multiple front-facing cameras and the company is assured to progress on the fronts.
At first, if you have a glance at the image, they all might look identical but go for a further noticing, you will be able to distinguish among the three devices. The Huawei P40 has a triple camera without a periscope zoom, the Huawei P40 Pro has a quad camera with a periscope lens, and the Huawei P40 Pro Premium has a Penta camera setup. The render says the camera setup on the P40 series will be constructed “Leica Ultra Vision”.
With the display of 6.1inches, The P40 series will sport a rectangular module of vertical arrays. The P40 is hoarded with a triple camera bump. The triple rear camera setup consisted of a 50 MP main sensor, 16 MP camera, and 8 MP camera. The 8 MP camera is likely a telephoto lens, and the phone will offer 30x digital zoom. We expect 3x optical zoom. At the front will be a 32 MP Selfie camera. The phone will be powered by a 3800mAh battery and 27W fast charging support.
The P40 Pro hosts a punch-hole cutout of two selfie cameras at front, arranged with 32MP sensor and a depth sensor. At the back, the camera module is packed with four cameras. In addition to the 50 MP primary lens, the phone will cover 40 MP ultra-wide lens and 12 MP telephoto + ToF quad-camera setup. The phone will deliver 50x “Supersensing zoom with Telephoto Stabilization”. Supplying the phone with power will be a 4200mAh battery, with 40W wired and 40/27W wireless charging keeping charge times down. The device will be performed a whole day with a standard usage.
The top dog, P40 Premium edition will hoard the biggest spec ever seen in any flagships. The display will house a pill-shaped punch-hole, housing a 32 MP front facing camera and a 3D ToF sensor. At the rear panel of the P40 Pro Premium is expected to be a penta-camera layout. The source claims it’ll be an order of 52 MP main shooter. It’s also rumored to support 4-in-1 pixels for 13MP shots, and would likely allow you to shoot in full 52MP quality as well. The camera order also acquires a 40 MP sensor, an 8 MP ultra-wide-angle lens, a 3D ToF sensor, and a periscope lens. The 52 MP is reportedly the IMX700 sensor, the direct successor to the IMX600 which Huawei favored for years. We don’t believe that to be exactly accurate, however. It’s a lot more likely that the 40 MP with IMX 650 sensor will be the ultra-wide-angle shooter as confronted on the Huawei Mate 30 Pro. The source also reiterated the claims of two telephoto lenses; likely an 8 MP 3x zoom lens, and a 10x optical zoom periscope lens.
Furthermore for a bigger display, a bigger battery is required. The premium device will feature a 5500mAh battery with 50W fast-charging and 27 W fast wireless charging.
The Huawei P40 series will come in Silver, Grey, Orange (or Gold), Black, Blue and Aurora. We’re measuring Huawei will come up with names, better suited to a prestige like Breathing Crystal. But The Huawei P40 Pro Premium is rumored to use ceramic instead of glass and it seems like it will come in either Black or White or further more premium colors.
