Last week, we’d learned a great deal about the upcoming Huawei P40 and P40 Pro’s key specifications courtesy of Indian publisher 91Mobiles.
Fast forward today, German publisher Winfuture.de has brought even more information on the upcoming Huawei P40 duo, and solved some of the mysteries which were previously unknown to us.
Here’s a quick round-up of all the information we’d gotten so far on the Huawei P40 and P40 Pro.
Huawei P40 Pro Specifications
Let’s start off with the Huawei P40 Pro. This is not only the most expensive, but also the most interesting and powerful one.
As most of us already know, the P40 Pro will feature a so-called “Quad-curved display” which is a term coined to describe it’s subtle curves along the edges. This will be an OLED display which measures approximately 6.58-inches diagonally and has a pretty impressive 2640 x 1200 pixels screen resolution.
Unlike some of the recent flagship phones which has a 120Hz screen refresh rate, the P40 Pro only support up to 90Hz refresh rate. However, 90Hz refresh rate is more than sufficient for a decently smooth visual experience to be honest.
On the front display, there will be an obvious pill-shaped cut-out which will house an array of sensors including a 32 megapixels main shooter, a secondary lens for depth information, as well as an infrared sensor. Courtesy of it’s infrared sensor, the device will be able to support IR-laser-based biometric unlock as an alternative security feature.
Moving on to it’s flip-side, this is where we’ll see a revolutionary quad-camera setup. The Huawei P40 Pro will feature a 50 megapixels “UltraVision” RYYB sensor as it’s main camera, along with another 40 megapixels RYYB sensor dedicated for videography. The latter is said to support 4K video with autofocus and optical image stabalization.
The third sensor in the quad-camera setup will be a 12 megapixels (f/3.4 aperture) telephoto lens with optical image stabalization that is capable of achieving 50x SuperSensing Zoom. Last but not the least, there is also a ToF sensor for portrait shots as well.
Besides that, other key highlights of the camera system also includes the latest Huawei XD Fusion Engine which according to WinFuture.de, should enable faster processing of the data and “unmatched clarity at the pixel level”. Likewise, it also has an Octa Phase Detection which enables quick autofocus capability.
Under the hood, the Huawei P40 Pro will be powered by the flagship Kirin 990 5G SoC which is compatible to the latest 5G connectivity for both standalone (SA) and non-standalone (NSA) modes. This will be coupled with 8GB worth of RAM and up to 256GB onboard storage space.
Last but not the least, the device will also feature a moderate battery which has a capacity rating of 4,200mAh, and supports up to 40W wired charging and 27W wireless charging.
Huawei P40 Specifications
Coming to the vanilla Huawei P40 model, the device shares pretty much the same specs as it’s “Pro” sibling, except for some differences with regards to it’s front display, camera system and battery.
Firstly, the Huawei P40 comes with slightly smaller, flat OLED display that measures approximately 6.1-inches diagonally. Naturally, it’s screen resolution has also been reduced to 2340 x 1080 pixels as well.
Next up, it’s pill-shaped cut-out will be slightly smaller in size as it will only house a 32 megapixels main shooter along with another lens for depth information. In this case, the infrared sensor has been omitted.
As for it’s rear cameras, the Huawei P40 will feature only a triple-camera setup. Although it will be equipped with the same 50 megapixels “UltraVision” RYYB sensor as it’s main camera, but it will be assisted with an downgraded 16 megapixels ultra-wide lens as well as an 8 megapixels telephoto lens. Therefore, it will only be able to support up to 3x optical zoom, and as much as 30x digital zoom.
Finally, the Huawei P40 will also utilize a watered-down 3,800mAh battery and supports up to 22.5W fast-charging. Sadly, there will not be any wireless charging solution for the vanilla P40.
If everything goes smoothly, the P40 flagship series will be officially announced on March 26th this week.
