Huawei has just announced on Weibo that the brand will launch the P40 series smartphones on 26th March 2020. The brand will not be organizing an on-ground event for the launch of the P40 series (Most probably due to Coronavirus outbreak). Instead, the event will be streamed online. As you might be aware, Huawei has already launched one P40 series device so far – the P40 Lite. There are, however, three more phones in the series – the P40, P40 Pro, and the P40 Pro Premium – at least according to the leaks. And these are the smartphones that the brand is expected to launch on 26th March.

The announcement post on Weibo is accompanied by a teaser video, which has ‘VisionPhotography’ hashtag, suggesting that the P40 series phones will be focused on photography. But that is not a surprise since P-series devices are always focused on imaging. The teaser video also shows a vertical camera hump of one of the P40 series smartphones (Most probably of the P40 Pro Premium), suggesting that the rear camera modules will be arranged vertically. Going by the length of the camera hump, it is safe to say that it will have at least four camera sensors.

Huawei P40 Pro Premium Expected Specifications

The top of the line model in the P40 series, the P40 Pro Premium, is expected to come with an OLED display with 120Hz refresh rate, Kirin 990 5G chipset, up to 16GB LPDDR5 RAM, up to 512GB UFS 3.0 storage, Android 10 OS with HMS (Huawei Mobile Services), a quad-camera setup at the rear consisting of a 52MP main camera, an 8MP telephoto camera with 10x optical zoom, a 40MP ultrawide camera, and a 3D ToF sensor, dual-camera setup at the front with 32MP main camera and a 3D ToF sensor, and a 5500mAH battery with 50W fast wired charging, 27W fast wireless charging, and 10W reverse wireless charging.
