Huawei P40 Pro: Release date, rumors and specs

Huawei changed the rules of photography last year as they launched the Huawei P30 and Huawei P30 Pro. The Huawei P30 Series was a big hit alongside the Huawei Mate 30 and became a strong competitor for Samsung and Apple. And although Huawei had their success with being the No. 2 phone manufacturer, they also faced a difficult situation with the US potentially banning Huawei for fear that its equipment is used in spying on other countries.

With these existing issues, Huawei remains unfazed as they launched the P40 Lite ahead of the P40 and P40 Pro. We’re already feeling a spur of excitement for the launch of the P40 Series flagship. How will Huawei surpass the expectation of its consumers from the P30 and P30 Pro?

Huawei Release Date and Price

Huawei previously launched the P30 Series last year March. We’ll be seeing Huawei unveil their latest handsets via a livestream on March 26 of this year. Its price is expected to be more affordable compared to their P30 and P30. It is a similar trend to Apple’s iPhone 11 pricing.

Expected Specifications and Features

The latest handsets will run on Android but without Google services. One rumour is that the P40 Pro will have a curved screen. Its camera will take on a rectangular design, and its fingerprint scanner is built in-screen.

Huawei does not disappoint with their camera quality, and rumours are suggesting that the P40 Pro will have up to 10x optical zoom (a feature that would be at par with the S20 Ultra). Rumours also indicate that the camera would comprise of a five-camera arrangement with 64MP for its main camera.

There’s no issue with Huawei’s rear cameras as this is an advantage from their flagships but will we see a dual-camera setup from their front cameras, considering that this is already a feature available from Samsung’s S10 Plus.

Other improvements we’re hoping for are wireless charging features for non-pro phones. The P30 Series is also designed with an OLED screen which is a bit less compared to competitors with an AMOLED or QuadHD display. It will be a considerable upgrade if we’re considering the viewing capacity of consumers (now that there’s been a boom on mobile streaming applications like Netflix, Hulu, and more).

These are just some of the rumours buzzing with the Huawei P40’s release. But stay tuned for what’s coming as they unveil the latest flagship on March 26, 2020. We’ll keep you updated!
