Huawei is gearing up for its next flagship release, coming to us in the form of the Huawei P40 and Huawei P40 Pro. We know that the company plans to go ahead with the release of the next iteration, despite no improvements in its political situation, because of which it will ship the phones with Huawei Mobile Services instead of Google Mobile Services. Early renders of both the devices had already surfaced last month, but they are unclear on several key areas. Now, we have our clearest look yet at the Huawei P40 thanks to new device renders.
These renders come to us from 91Mobiles, and they show off the device from all the important angles. As shown off in the render, the standard variant of the P40 series will come with a flat display. We can spot the dual selfie camera housed in the display cutout/punch-hole in the top left corner of the phone. Upon very close inspection, you can also make out the top and bottom bezels on the phone.
The back of the device shows off the triple rear camera setup, set within a rectangular camera island located in the top left on the back — which is becoming a trend for phones released in early 2020. We can also spot the Leica branding besides the camera, as well as the dual-LED flash. The camera does protrude from the phone. There is no fingerprint sensor to be spotted on the back of the phone, which means that it will come with an in-display fingerprint sensor.
We can also spot the speaker holes on the bottom, the USB Type-C port, the microphone hole, and the SIM card slot. The right side of the phone bears the volume rocker and the power button. The top and left angles of the phone are not pictured, which leads us to believe that these sides may be devoid of any interesting hardware — indicating that we are unlikely to see a headphone jack on this phone either, in line with previous leaks and rumors.
The P40 series is scheduled for launch in late March 2020 at an event in Paris. We hope to learn more about the phone before then.
