Just a few days ahead of launch, a slew of information has been leaked for the upcoming Huawei P40 Pro and P40 smartphones. The Huawei P40 Pro is expected to come with quad camera setup with a 50x telephoto zoom.
The quad camera setup of the P40 includes a 50MP wide camera, a 40MP telephoto camera, a 12MP ultra wide camera and a time of flight sensor. There will be a 32MP selfie camera. Both the smartphones are expected to come with a 6.58-inch screen and will be powered by the Kirin 990 processor.
The smartphone is also said to come with an additional hardware equipment called the Huawei XD Fusion Engine. This hardware will work similar to the Google's Pixel Visual Core found in Pixel devices, which reduces the time it takes for the phone to compile HDR photos.
The P40 will feature a 6.1-inch display and a triple rear camera setup including a 50MP primary sensor, a 16MP sensor and a 8MP sensor. The phone’s max zoom capability is 30x and will feature the Huawei XD Fusion Engine.
The P40 Pro and the P40 are successors of the P30 Pro and the P30, which were received well by users in terms of camera performance. The upcoming flagship the smartphones will feature OLED displays with 120Hz refresh rate and will run on Huawei's EMUI 10 skin.
It’s not yet known whether the new phones will have Huawei’s Harmony OS or will run on Google’s Android ecosystem. Last year, Google cut ties with Huawei after the Chinese tech giant was put in the Entity List by Trump administration. However, Google has reportedly applied for a licence, which will allow it to deliver Google Mobile Services (GMS) on Huawei phones. This means users will be able to continue using apps like YouTube, Play Store, Maps, and others on Huawei phones.
