The Huawei P40 will reportedly have a 6.1 or 6.2 inches flat display, while the P40 Pro will have a 6.5 or 6.7 with curves on all four sides; Samsung style display. The renders don’t show that the device will have a punch-hole display or notched display. There isn’t any pop-up module this time too. The device will have an in-display fingerprint scanner this time too and we expect to have an OLED display this time too. The tipster has also added that the device will have a metallic frame on the corners instead of the plastic frame. We don’t know how a glass display will fold into a metallic frame.
Talking about the design at the back, there will be four cameras for Huawei P40, while the no of cameras in Huawei P40 Pro isn’t confirmed, some reports suggest that it may be five cameras at the back. The P40 series will have a glass display as usual and an all-display fascia.

Both the handsets would come with the in house Kirin 990 chipset which was integrated with 5G modem. Software-wise as said above it will run on EMUI 10 which is based on Android 10 with no Google apps on board.
