Huawei P40 Lite arrives in Europe, it is a rebranded Nova 6 SE

Huawei has brought the first member of the P40 series in Europe, starting with Spain. The f midranger Huawei P40 Lite has debuted - it's virtually identical to what Chinese customers know as Huawei nova 6 SE in China and Malaysians saw as the Huawei nova 7i.

The Huawei P40 Lite comes with a Kirin 810 chipset and EMUI 10 based on Android 10, but no Google Services. It features 6GB RAM and 128GB of storage, but if you want more, you have to expand with an NM card. The 6.4” LCD has FullHD+ resolution and a punch hole in the upper left corner.

Huawei P40 early prototype hands-on reveals design

As Huawei confirmed its plans to introduce the P40 flagship series on March 26, DigitalTrends managed to get a hold of a prototype unit of the P40 giving us our first look at the next-gen Huawei flagship. It’s important to note that they weren’t allowed to play with the phone’s software and cameras nor show the screen or confirm any of the key specs.

Starting off with the design, the P40 is said to come with the same dimensions as the outgoing P30 Pro but with some added thickness. It also comes with a curved glass body that sits more comfortably in the hand thanks to its rounded corners and sports a highly reflective glossy finish. The phone will feature a curved display but not as pronounced as the waterfall offering on the Mate 30 Pro as well as physical volume and power buttons.

Huawei P40 Lite E launches in Europe as the cheapest P40 family member

A month ago Huawei unveiled the Y7p Thailand, an entry-level phone with a 48MP main camera. Now this phone has made its way to Europe as the Huawei P40 Lite E.

It’s available right now on Huawei’s Polish site and costs PLN 700 – a temporary discount from PLN 1,168 (€163, down from €272). This is for a phone with 4GB of RAM and 64GB storage. Also, you’re getting a free Huawei Band 4. Shipments start on March 12.

In case you didn't pay attention to the Y7p, here’s a quick rundown of the specs. The Huawei P40 Lite E features a 6.39” IPS LCD with 720p+ resolution. There’s an 8MP punch hole selfie camera in the upper left.

On the back, there’s a triple camera with a 48MP main module (f/1.8 aperture), plus an 8MP ultra wide-angle camera and a 2MP depth sensor. There’s fingerprint reader.

I really, really hope the P40 Premium comes with a ceramic body and a graphene battery like the rumors suggest.

Huawei P40 launch date confirmed once again, will have a massive camera bump

Huawei is preparing its next flagship lineup - the P40 and P40 Pro and even the P40 Premium Edition. The CEO Richard Yu said the launch will take place on March 26 in Paris, France, and today the official teaser of the launch appeared on the company website.

The teaser also gives us a sneak peek of the camera setup, which will sit on an impressively big bump that was rumored to hold at least five shooters.

GSMArena hands-on & unboxing of the P40 Lite

I probably would have wanted this, if it had an Amloed screen. It is very difficult for me to part with +-R6000, when manufacturers like Xiaomi are adding better spec @ the same price or less.

Leaked official images shows entire Huawei P40 lineup, colors and all

Here's Huawei's upcoming P40 lineup in one single image. It features all the available colors of the upcoming flagship lineup, which will consist of the Huawei P40, the Huawei P40 Pro and the P40 Pro Premium - the P40 lite and P40 lite E are already official.

At first glance the devices in the image look identical, save for their size, but look closely and you'll be able to distinguish three devices by the camera island on the rear. The Huawei P40 has a triple camera without a periscope zoom, the Huawei P40 Pro has a quad camera with a periscope lens, and the Huawei P40 Pro Premium has a penta camera setup.

New leaked images show the front of the Huawei P40 and P40 Pro

Plenty of mysteries, surrounding the upcoming P40 family have been unraveling lately. As the March 26 scheduled announcement date grows nearer we have started to get a far clearer picture of the upcoming trio – the P40, P40 Pro and P40 Premium. Mind you, that’s without counting the already announced P40 lite and P40 lite E, nor the alleged Porsche Design and Red Flag editions.

So far we've mostly been looking at the backs of the P40 lineup, but now reputable leakster Evan Blass gave us a couple of pictures of the vanilla P40 and the P40 Pro. From the looks of things, the former is sticking to a flat or perhaps very slightly curved display.

On the other hand the P40 Pro follows in the steps of devices like the Mate 30 and its curvy display. Though, this angle really doesn’t allow us to see if Huawei will, once again, be going for quite as aggressive of a curve.

Huawei P40 and P40 Pro specs and pricing detailed days before release

Huawei will unveil the P40 flagships on March 26 but famed leakster Roland Quandt has already published a detailed rundown of what to expect in terms of specs and price.

In Europe, both the Huawei P40 and P40 Pro will use the Kirin 990 5G chipset and will feature 5G connectivity. Some regions will get LTE versions, however. Quandt's info covers the vanilla and Pro models, the rumored Premium version is not mentioned.

Huawei P40 Pro

The Huawei P40 Pro will cost €1,000 and will have a larger 6.58" OLED display with 90Hz refresh rate and 1,200 x 2,640px resolution. The dual punch hole in the top left corner will house the 32MP selfie camera, a depth sensor and a 3D sensor for secure face unlock.

The rear camera will feature two modules with RYYB sensors. The first is a 50MP "UltraVision" camera with f/1.9 aperture and OIS, which will be primarily used for photos. There's an Octa Phase Detection system along with pixel binning. An AI-powered feature will capture images in a 1.7 second period and will automatically pick the "golden snap".

Huawei P40

The Huawei P40 will be smaller and lighter than its Pro sibling. It will have a 6.1" OLED display with 1080p+ resolution (the refresh rate looks to be 60Hz). The selfie camera will skip the 3D sensor.

The rear camera setup will keep the 50MP UltraVision cam, but the telephoto cam goes down to an 8MP sensor (both modules will have OIS). There will also be an ultra wide shooter with a 16MP sensor.

The battery capacity is expected to be 3,800mAh and will only support 22.5W fast charging (same as the P30 last year). There's no dust and water resistance and no additional cooling (the Pro's chipset will dump its heat in the graphene-based SuperCool system).
