Huawei will launch the P40 flagships on March 26, but the famous leakster Roland Quandt has already published comprehensive specs and price overview of what to expect.
Both the Huawei P40 and P40 Pro will use the Kirin 990 5G chipset in Europe and will have 5 G connectivity. Some regions will, however, receive LTE versions. Quandt’s data covers the vanilla and Pro versions, with no mention of the alleged Premium edition.
Both phones are tipped to deliver a 50MP RYYB f/1.9 primary camera for better image quality with “Octa Phase Detection” autofocus, pixel binning, and an “XD Fusion Processor.” It is also said that both devices offer a 32MP selfie camera, while WinFuture says the app packs an IR sensor for the effects of face unlocking and depth.
Aside from the 50MP primary camera, though, the two phones allegedly carry separate configurations for the rear camera. The P40 Pro offers an ultra-wide 40MP camera, a 12MP “SuperSensing Telephoto” lens, and a 3D ToF sensor. In the meantime, the P40 has a more modest configuration, with an ultra-wide 16MP camera and an 8MP telephoto shooter (no news on its zoom factor).
The battery capacity is estimated to be 3,800mAh and will allow a fast charging of 22.5W.
The Huawei P40 will only have one memory configuration-8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage. The P40 Pro is to have a choice of 256 GB.
Quandt reports they are using a new standard memory card-NanoMemory-2. It’s not clear whether older cards are sponsored or what’s the value of the new model.
The Huawei P40 will come in black, white, gold, and silver color.
