Official renders of the Huawei P40 Pro 5G leaked by Evan Blass

Huawei P40 Spotted on Geekbench with 8GB RAM Hours Before the Official Launch

The P40 series is, unsurprisingly, the successor to last year's well-received P30 and P30 Pro (indeed, most of this post was written on the P30 Pro).

The Huawei P40 range is official, with Huawei unveiling the largely-leaked P40, P40 Pro and P40 Pro+ at a livestreamed virtual launch event.

I really like the Huawei P40 so far - the design is eye-catching, especially the Silver Frost finish, the cameras (especially the main 50Mp sensor) capture impressively detailed images and it's blistering fast in operation no matter what you're doing - but it's not the flawless high-end flagship, missing key features like wireless charging, the quad- or penta-camera setups of the P40 Pro and Pro+ and the curved display tech Huawei has used in much of the recent Mate and P lines. As it usually does, Huawei is putting camera upgrades front and center, and the company also has a new smartwatch to show off.

Huawei is offering the P40 at $1,099 from the Huawei store in Chatswood Sydney, Mobileciti and Harvey Norman.

A "super night mode" seen above and the Huawei XD Fusion engine - an algorithm that enhances images - are also part of the kit. Video is also a focus for Huawei, with AIS and OIS onboard to stabilize footage even when zooming in.

On the other hand, the P40 Pro+ features a nano-tech ceramic back panel and it comes in Ceramic White and Ceramic Black color options.

They also boast higher resolutions than their previous-generation counterparts.

In terms of the design, the three phones all have what Huawei calls a "quad-curve overflow display" - one that's rounded on all four sides, essentially.

It's hard to put into words, as you might be able to tell, which is why you should watch my Huawei P40 unboxing to get a real idea of what I'm talking about here.

Canada's Trudeau balks at potential troop deployment on USA border
The funds come from the $82-billion financial aid package announced a week ago to help the country weather the COVID-19 pandemic. The state of NY , which shares a border with Canada, has been an epicenter of the USA outbreak.

P40 Series smartphones also include support for dual SIM and eSIM capabilities. The phone is powered by the octa-core Kirin 990 5G SoC, Mali-G76 MC16 GPU.

The lower spec P40 has a similar configuration and shares the 50MP main sensor, but with lower specs on the other sensors (Ultra Wide Angle 16MP f/2.2 and Telephoto 8MP f/2.4 with OIS) and there's no depth camera. Finally, a 40MP (f/1.8) ultra wide angle sensor should provide greater detail to wide angle shots and a depth sensing camera. The Huawei P40 Pro will feature an additional camera at the back, which will likely be a periscopic lens. A little while ago, we were able to spot the Huawei P40 Pro smartphone on the Geekbench database website. Clearly, many of us won't spend that much on a smartphone.

Up your pick to the P40 Pro and you'll find a phone with a 6.58-inch, 1,200 x 2,640 pixel OLED screen, 8 GB of RAM, and either 128 GB, 256 GB or 512 GB of internal storage. Furthermore, the Geekbench listing has confirmed that the Huawei P40 will run the latest Android 10 OS out of the box.

The new phones are still offered without Google Mobile Service (GMS) due to the manufacturers continued placement on the U.S. Commerce Department's entity list.

The biggest change consumers will notice with HMS is that they will not be asked to log in to their Google account on startup.

That being said, the previous certifications have revealed a lot about the device.

Huawei also announced its own voice assistant which responds to "Hey Celia" and is positioned to compete with solutions such as Google Assistant, Bixby, and Siri. The P40 and P40 Pro are available in Ice White, Black, DeepSea Blue, Silver Frost, Blush Gold, while the P40 Pro+ is only available in black and white.

In Australia, the P40 and P40 Pro will be available for pre-order from Friday 27 March ahead of a local launch on the 16th of April.

Locally, the Huawei P40 has an Australian price of AU$1099.
