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.
The Huawei P40 and P40 Pro will have USB type c port speaker grill and the sim card tray to the bottom. There isn’t a headphone jack in the device. There is a 2mm hole to the top, we don’t know what it’s for. The power and volume rockers are placed to the right of the device.
As per renders, we don’t have any information regarding the specifications of the device. But with regards to some previous reports, the Huawei P40 Pro could have a gigantic 5500 mAh battery which would come with 50W fast charging support. 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.
The Huawei P40 Pro is reported to have a 6.5-inch waterfall QHD+ OLED display with a 120hz display and a whopping 98% screen to body ratio.

Finally, Huawei confirmed that Harmony OS; in-house OS isn’t coming to this series of devices.

Huawei P40 Render Leaked! Reveals a Familiar Design.
By the end of 2019, we got to have a look at the renders of Huawei‘s P40, published by OnLeaks. But we didn’t get to see the phone in much detail. Today, we have got more renders that provide some visual details about the phone and also tells us a bit about the camera system of the upcoming Huawei P40, which is set to launch in March 2020.
As you can see in the image above, the Huawei P40 features a flat display. However, there is a pill-shaped cutout on the top left corner of the display which will be housing dual front-facing cameras for selfies. The front of the phone looks pretty minimal. But the back has got quite a few interesting elements.
There is a triple camera setup on the back of the Huawei P40. And we can see the Leica Optics branding there in the camera module. In this rectangular camera module, there are three cameras placed vertically. There is a two-tone finish on the camera module and to the right of the cameras, there is an LED flash and the Leica branding. The camera module on the Huawei P40 looks pretty similar to that of the recently launched Galaxy S10 Lite. So, it looks like rectangular camera modules are going to be very popular in 2020.
The back of the phone is pretty neat otherwise, as there is no fingerprint scanner visible. It can be assumed that the phone will come with an in-display fingerprint scanner.
The right edge of the phone houses the power button, as well as volume rockers. However, the left edge of the phone hasn’t been revealed yet which might house the SIM card tray. At the bottom of the phone, there is a speaker grille along with a USB-C port for charging and data transfer, but there is no headphone jack!
In terms of the camera configuration, all we know is that the Huawei P40 will have a primary sensor, an ultra-wide sensor, and a ToF sensor. No details regarding the specs of those cameras are known at this moment. However, the Huawei P40 Pro is said to come with a quad-camera setup on the back and for that phone, some alleged camera specs are out on the web. At first, it was claimed that the Huawei P40 Pro will come with a 64-megapixel primary camera, but now, as per the latest reports, the phone will come with a 52-megapixel primary camera.
