Huawei launched a new range of flagship phones today (26th March) including the P40 and P40 Pro.


The company unveiled the new phones despite the coronavirus pandemic - though Huawei announced that 90 per cent of the company's China-based workforce is now back at work.

The new smartphones were shown via a livestreamed video rather than the usual events the phone companies hold.

The Huawei P40 phones do not have the Google services, including YouTube, Playstore and Maps or Google Assistant due to the US trade ban.

When is Huawei P40 released?

The P40 and P40 Pro goes on sale on 7th April, 2020. The P40 Pro+ is out in June and costs 1,399 euros.

What are the new three Huawei phones?

There are three new versions of phones, the normal P40, the P40 Pro and the high-end Pro+.

Huawei P40 - A standout feature from the P40 is the 50MP Leica triple camera, which allows professional-looking photos and videos in crystal clear quality, regardless of the scene or light conditions. There's a 6.1-inch OLED display, 3800mAh battery for long-lasting performance, and 5G network speeds (in connected areas).

Huawei P40 Pro - For those who demand more, the P40 Pro features an outstanding 50MP Leica quad camera, and a larger 6.58-inch OLED display. The P40 Pro also has a 4200mAh battery with wireless and reverse charging capabilities, and it’s also 5G-ready.

Huawei P40 specs and features

  • The P40 has a 6.1 inch screen and the Pros have 6.58 inch displays (a bit bigger than Apple's iPhone 11 Pro Max).
  • All phones have 5G and the standard phone has three rear cameras - one has 3x optical zoom.
  • P40 Pro also has a time-of-flight depth sensor and has a periscope lens meaning light is reflected into the device for a 5x optical zoom.

  • AI feature - allows you to remove undesired objects from your scene and get rid of reflections in glass.

  • 32 megapixel selfie camera recording in 4K - the two high-end models have depth-sensing technology to blur the background for portrait.
