The saga of the trade war between the United States and Huawei still does not seem to have an end in sight, however, Richard Yu, CEO of the company, will have indicated to the press that the next smartphone of the P line of Huawei will be launched as early as March 2020 at an event in Paris. As the arrival time approaches, more rumors and leaks about the new P40 are appearing in the online world.
According with Evan “Evleaks” Blass tweets, an American blogger known for having inside information about the latest smartphone launches, the "pro" model of Huawei's P40 line may feature a rear camera configuration with five sensors, it seems, from Leica.
On the front of the smartphone, it is possible to find a screen without notch, with a double punch-hole design in the upper left corner for two front cameras. The volume and power buttons are arranged on the right side, and there is also a USB-C input for charging at the bottom of the device, as well as a notable lack of a headphone jack.
With regard to what may exist under the P40's “bonnet”, previous rumors predict that the device will arrive with the Kirin 990 5G SoC. The smartphone may also have a curved 6.57-inch AMOLED screen with a resolution of 2K + and support for HDR content.
On the smartphone operating system, Richard Yu reportedly told the press at a conference in Shenzhen, China, that HarmonyOS, the manufacturer's OS for mobile devices, is not ready in time for the launch of the P40. Therefore, the equipment may have installed the Open Source version of Android 10, the EMUI 10.
The official will also have indicated that the new P40 would come equipped with Huawei Mobile Services. Like what happened at the presentation of Mate 30, the first smartphone from the manufacturer after the United States blockade, at IFA 2019, the official will not have said clearly that this will be the company's option to replace Google Mobile Services.
