One of the devices that aren’t quite well anticipated in the US market is The Huawei P40 and P40 Pro. These are the upcoming flagships from Huawei. Although they may not be welcome in the American market after the whole Trade-War stuff, they will surely be excellent devices. According to Huawei, we’ll get the announcement on the 26th of this month but thanks to the likes of Ishan Agarwal and 91Mobiles, we have been getting sneak peeks of these devices. In a recent tale, we now know most of the specs for them as well.
According to a tweet from Ishan, the Huawei P40 Pro would have a 6.58-inch display. He includes more specs in his tweet below.

The P40 Pro
Diving deeper into the device, we see from the post tagged in the tweet. Firstly, yes, like many modern flagships today, it would come with 5G support. The main attraction would be the camera setup. We know that Huawei does well with its cameras. The cameras on the Mate 30 Pro were excellent, despite the unorthodox design. For the P40 Pro, it would be a 4 camera setup from Leica. Dubbed as Leica Ultra Vision Quad Camera Setup, the device would have a 50MP main sensor, a 40MP secondary sensor, a 12MP one and a 3D ToF sensor. The telephoto lens would support a 50x zoom (Super Sensing). The latter would be used to measure distance, similar to the one found in the new iPad Pro. Perhaps we’d see more AR functionality.
The front camera is similar to the one found on Samsung S10 Plus, it would house a 32MP sensor and a depth sensor. All these camera tools will be backed by Huawei’s XD Fusion Engine for image processing.
As for the internal power, we’d see a Kirin 990 SoC with 5G support. It would be housed with a 4200mAh battery, which in my opinion is small for today’s standards and the screen size on the device. One thing is unsure at the moment, the fast charging support. Although Ishan claims that it may be capped at 40W (wired), this may not be the case though for wireless charging. Additionally, the device, as per US-China relations, would not have support for Google Apps. Instead, Huawei will load it with its own app directory. I hope that turns out better than expected.
