Richard Yu, CEO of the Huawei Consumer Business Group has confirmed during an interview with French Press that the feverishly-anticipated Huawei P40 series smartphones will be announced towards the end of March next year.

The launch event will be held in Paris, the same city in France where we saw the global launch of this year’s Huawei P30 and P30 Pro flagships.

According to Frandroid, the Huawei executive reassured that the upcoming P40 smartphone will benefit from a brand new design as well as upgraded photography capability. In fact, we wouldn’t be surprised at all if the P40 Pro regain it’s top position at DxOMark this coming March.

Once again, Yu reiterated that the P40 smartphones will not be shipped with their proprietary HarmonyOS. Instead, it will continue to run on EMUI 10 (based on Android 10) just like the current Mate 30 series smartphones.

As usual, there will not be any licensed Google Play apps and services out of the box. Therefore, the device will be supported by Huawei Mobile Services (HMS) instead of Google Mobile Services (GMS).

Although lack of Google services has undeniably affected Huawei’s global smartphone sale, but the impact of the omission does not seems as bad as what most of us initially thought.

Many global consumers are still willing to pick up the Mate 30 smartphones despite it’s lack of Google services. For those who are slightly more geeky, they have succeeded in bringing some of these crucial services to the device using various workarounds.

Similar to the case of the Huawei Mate 30, the upcoming P40 smartphones most likely would not contain any US-made parts or components as well.
