A leakster over on Weibo – the Chinese equivalent of Twitter – just exposed a custom version of the upcoming Huawei P40 Pro, this special edition is expected to be called “Red Flag”.
Huawei P40 Pro Coming in a “Red Flag” Special Edition
As we can see in the image above, the Huawei P40 Pro Red Flag appears to feature a two-color design with red and black, inspired by the Chinese luxury car marque owned by the automaker FAW Car Company – Hongqi. Hongqi also means “Red Flag”, thus the name of this special edition.
The car maker actually revealed in the past on WeChat that Huawei was going to produce a dedicated version of the P40 Pro. So, today’s leak didn’t surprise too many people. The Huawei P40 Pro is also expected to launch along with a new car from Hongqi.

The exposed poster also reminds us that the P40 Pro will be officially released on March 26th. In terms of specifications, the P40 Pro will use a dual punch-hole full-screen solution; with a display refresh rate that could top at 90Hz. The smartphone will be packing the excellent Huawei Kirin 990 5G SOC; along with its support for SA, NSA dual-mode 5G. It’ll also support fast charging at up to 40W. Other features on the smartphone should include UFS 3.0 internal storage and LPDDR5; which would make it one of the fastest smartphones on the market.
Camera wise, the P40 Pro is expected to pack five Leica rear cameras; with the main camera sporting 52MP resolution. While the telephoto will actually use a periscope lens for up to 10x optical zoom.
As with every Huawei launch, the P40 Pro will probably dominate the DxOMark ranking and become the king of next-generation mobile phone photography.
Finally, Huawei’s flagship may support Huawei’s in-house Wi-Fi 6+ technology. This tech will bring better chip-level collaboration and dynamic narrow bandwidth, along with end-to-end support a for very large bandwidth of 160MHz and the short-range speed is twice the 80MHz bandwidth (same as MU-MIMO).
