Huawei CEO Richard Yu recently revealed that the upcoming P40 series will be announced towards the end of March. The P series is expected to feature three phones for the first time. This includes the Huawei P40, P40 Pro and P40 Lite. Further, there’s an even higher-end model of the P40 Pro called the p40 Pro Premium in talks.

The certifications don’t reveal a lot about the phone’s specifications. However, it does confirm that both the Huawei devices are 5G ready smartphones. These phones will be capable of supporting both standalone (SA) and non-standalone (NSA) modes of 5G. Also Read - Huawei P40 Pro leaks once again, reveals mint green color option
According to an earlier leaked render, the Huawei P40 will feature a pill-shaped punch-hole notch on the front, housing two camera sensors. On the back will be a rectangular camera module with a triple-camera setup. This likely includes an ultra-wide-angle lens and a ToF sensor along with the main camera sensor. The Leica-branded camera will have a dual-LED flash next to it and the whole module will make a slight protrusion towards the outside.
Huawei P40 Pro
The P40 Pro will flaunt a more-curvy frame along the side edges. This looked like a slightly toned-down version of the waterfall display design in a recent leak. The phone was also revealed to feature small, almost negligible bezels on the top and bottom. On the back, the Huawei P40 Pro’s rectangular camera module will house a total of four camera sensors. These will likely be a main camera lens, along with a cinematic lens, a periscope lens, and a ToF sensor.
