Forthcoming Huawei’s P40 specifications were leaked by in a series of tweets by leakster Yash Raj Chaudhary earlier this week. Huawei P is a high-end smartphone series and P40, as expected, is a full pack of amazing specifications.
According to leaks, the P40 smartphone will be exhibiting a 6.5-inches 2K OLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate. As for the most part, we are having a glimpse of 90Hz refresh rates in current year smartphones. It is expected to have a 98% screen to body ratio making it approximately a bezel-less phone.
The P40 smartphone is also anticipated to feature Leica Penta cameras and could seemingly exhibit a 5,500mAH battery. According to leaks, this is due to ‘innovatively applying’ graphene materials to both the positive and negative battery electrodes and electrolytes of smartphone battery.
Huawei P40 smartphone reportedly will also use the company’s newly developed 50W flash charge in 45 minutes to fully charge this graphene-based battery. It takes 30% less volume than lithium-based batteries.
The phone will be powered with 7nm Kirin 990, a 5G system-on-chip, first used in Huawei Mate 30 Pro.
This information should be viewed with skepticism or not to interpret literally. There is no way of understanding that this information is precise, so don’t get your hopes up just yet. Moreover, there is the issue of the trade war between the US and China which has resulted in Huawei being prohibited from doing business with US companies.
Other alleged specifications include a total of five cameras on the rear. The primary would be a gigantic 64MP sensor, with a 20MP ultrawide, a 12MP periscope lens. A separate macro camera and a time-of-flight sensor for depth would be part of it. It will support 4K video recording.
On the front, it will have Nova 6 5G like dual, main and ultra-wide, camera.
Huawei Mate 30 was the first victim of the Android ban and it was launched without support for Google Play Services. so we have to wonder that even with these thrilling (alleged) specifications, but without Google Play Services, will the P40 series still be an attractive purchase for potential buyers?
The first batch of 2020 P40 flagship phones is set to arrive as early as February 2020.
