Recently leaked news refers to the predecessor of P30 Pro as the P40 Pro. Huawei has announced that the phone will be officially unveiled on March 26, 2020, in Paris. Huawei CEO Richard Yu confirmed the name of the Huawei P40 series and called it the world's most powerful 5G smartphone. The Chinese brand also displayed its first foldable smartphone the Huawei Mate XS at the MWC that was conducted virtually due to the coronavirus problem in the region. The company also showed off the 5G variant of the MatePad Pro, as well as new laptops and smart home devices, and a few updates to its Huawei Mobile services ecosystem and the App Gallery.
While there isn't much news about the phone, the only confirmed news we have is that the P40 series will support 5G. The smartphone will be powered by the Kirin 990 5G processing chip we saw for the first time being used in Mate 30 Pro. The next biggest news is that unless something unpredictable happens between today and March 26, the Huawei P40 won't have the Google apps or the Play Store due to the Trump administration ban.
Richard Yu is hasn't made any big claims at the event, but it will be interesting to see how the company is going to manage the competition with its most powerful 5G smartphone series - and yet no Google apps. That we need to find out in a couple of months. According to the leaks, there will be three new flagships in the P40 series - the Huawei P40, Huawei P40 Pro, and Huawei P40 Pro premium edition. The only major difference between these phones is the camera specs. The Huawei P40 is expected to come with triple rear cameras while the P40 Pro and P40 pro premium are said to have the quad and Penta camera lenses, respectively.
