Definitive images of the Huawei P40 and Huawei P40 Pro


A new leak has left us several press renders of the Huawei P40 and P40 Pro, two top-of-the-range terminals with which the Chinese company will renew its catalog of premium smartphones, and whose presence is still scheduled for this March 26.

Making a direct comparison with the current generation, the Huawei P30, and P30 Pro, we see that the Huawei P40 and P40 Pro represent a considerable evolution in terms of design, both due to the configuration of the rear camera and the integration of the front cameras.

Huawei has gone from an all-screen front with a drop of water notch to a “floating” type finish, in which the camera is placed in a small space located on the side. As for the rear camera, it is integrated into a rectangular island, a very particular approach that reminds us of what we have seen in the Samsung Galaxy S20 family.

The line has not changed, we have rounded corners that make for a rather classic touch, as we can see in the images, and the screen edges have been reduced considerably.
