Huawei is set to launch its new P40 flagship smartphones on Thursday, 26 March 2020.
The series is reported to include three models – the Huawei P40 Pro, P40, and P40 Lite.
These new smartphones are expected to boast impressive camera hardware and network capabilities, according to leaked specifications for the Huawei P40 Pro.
Included in these specifications is a “Leica Ultra Vision Quad Cam” camera system, which points to the new devices boasting a 50x zoom feature.
Huawei therefore looks to continue its tradition of launching powerful smartphones which challenge Apple and Samsung, and the inclusion of Huawei Mobile Services on its new handsets should excite fans of open-access software and new ecosystems.
