The Huawei p30 was a big hit for Huawei in 2019 it was one of the phones that changed the game in terms of photography. It was a big hit for the Huawei brand. We are just a few days away from the release of the Huawei p40 and p40 pro but this time around it’s quite a different story. The ongoing ban on Huawei means the brand can no longer have access to Google apps and the play store.
The ban means a lot in terms of competition and capability and value when compared to other brands of phones. Despite the ban, the Huawei p40 series is one of the series that I’ve been waiting for.
So in this article, we guide you on what to expect from the Huawei P40 series. There have been a lot of leaks in the past few weeks generating a lot of buzz online but we will guide you through all the latest news surrounding the Huawei P40 series.
Huawei P40 Series News and Rumors
The big news we will start with is the fact that the P40 series will come with upgraded cameras and better performance. It will run on android 10 but Google services will not be supported.
There will be some changes when compared to the P30 series. There won’t be a 3.5mm headphone jack and the phone will come with a rectangular camera bump. We can’t confirm the material that was used to build the phone but it will either be glass or ceramic.
There have been various leaks suggesting that three models will be launched at the same time this includes the Huawei P40, Huawei P40 Pro and The Huawei P40 Pro Premium Edition. From all the leaks and renders we expect a bezeless and curved screen from the new P40 series line up.
Huawei P40 Series Camera and Battery
In this aspect Huawei has a new technology called “super visual image system’’ this Huawei claims will set new records and be a market-leading camera sensor. The Pro model is going to come with five-camera modules.
A 52MP main sensor, 12MP zoom lens with 10x optical zoom, and ultra-wide sensor, depth sensor, and macro lens.
As to this camera specs, we can’t confirm it yet but the camera will be one of the best features on the P40 series.
The P40 Pro Premium is expected to come with at least 5500mAh battery and that will be the biggest battery ever on a flagship phone. In addition, 50W fast charging is expected and 27W reverse wireless charging the phone is also expected to be used as a power bank.
Huawei P40 Series Release Date and Price
There was initially a planned event to launch the P40 series in Paris but it was canceled amidst the outbreak of the coronavirus.
The company will be hosting a live stream event on the 26th of March where it will unveil the two new phones. When it comes to the price we expect the P40 to be priced slightly higher than the P40 series.
In just a few days the P40 series will be launched and it will come with talking points especially in terms of camera.
One competition I want to look out for is the camera comparison between the Huawei P40 and the Samsung Galaxy S20 ultra. I’m optimistic and I’m surely going to be comparing the two side by side.
