The Huawei P40 is expected to come with a triple-camera setup. Meanwhile, the P40 Pro is expected to feature a new Penta-camera setup on the back. This includes a 64-megapixel main lens along with a 20-megapixel ultra-wide camera, a 12-megapixel telephoto lens, and a ToF sensor.
The Huawei P40 Pro will also feature a curved screen with nearly no bezels. The phone will feature the dual-front camera setups in a pill-shaped punch-hole. Recent leaks also suggested that the phone could feature a new ‘Mint Green’ color option. Another leak suggested that at least one variant of the phone series could feature a ceramic body.
What about Google services?
With the ongoing war with the USA, Huawei will still not be able to use any Google services on the phone. The issue shook the launch of the Huawei P30 Pro last year and looks like it will continue to bother the company for a while. Regardless, Huawei will go ahead with its own baked HarmonyOS on the P40 series. The Google apps and services will also be replaced with other similar alternatives. We should see more confirmed information on the Huawei P40 series closer to the launch.
