Huawei’s CEO Richard Yu had previously given the public idea on what the Huawei P40 would offer and look like. Mr Yu said the P40 will come with a new design, upgraded camera, processor, and battery life.

The Huawei P40 series is expected to launch in five different gradient colour; Black, Blush Gold, Silver Frost, Deep Sea Blue, and Ice White. Also, it will come with a metal and glass designs with a horizon Display and no edge bezel.
The top-left corner of the device(The P40) will have a pill-shaped cutout housing 2 fore cameras. Although some leaks have it that the Huawei P40 will come with a triple fore camera, this is still to be confirmed.
The Huawei P40 will also feature a curved display. Also, the Huawei P40 Pro is expected to have a Quad HD+ OLED display; The size is expected to be somewhere between 6.5 to 6.7-inches.
According to information on Pocket-lint.com, who went hands-on with the device although didn’t see it, the P40 will be 6.1 to 6.2-inches and is more likely to be flat, something that’s also confirmed by design renders. There’s a chance that this will also be OLED, but have a Full HD+ resolution.
Rumours also say the P40 device will feature a premium edition;- The P40 Premium.
Based on some leaked images from a twee, the P40 will have three rear shooters, while the pro and premium variants get four and five rear sensors, respectively.
Since the Trade ware between the US and China is still ongoing, you shouldn’t expect to see Google core apps like Play Store, Gmail, Google Map, etc. But what we are sure is, the device will come with a good alternative to these apps.
