The presentation of various devices will take place next week, with the Huawei P40, P40 Pro and P40 Pro Premium Edition being the most anticipated by the vast majority (although we cannot forget the Redmi K30 Pro, for example). These devices have been filtered on many occasions, especially in the design section, but there is something that we have not been able to see too clearly in all this time: their screens. We more or less know how it will be, that it will have a pill-like hole in the screen and that it will be curved, but without more details. Today we finally have images of it.
It has been Evan Blass who has leaked the press images of the Huawei P40 and P40 Pro, showing a back that we already knew well enough, but that really generates interest in allowing us to see the screen of these two devices and thus know how they will take advantage of the front and the size of the hole on the screen, etc.
The Huawei P40 maintains the flat screen, with a huge hole
The hole in the screen is trending this year, of that there is no doubt. It seems that it is the step to take before being able to hide the camera under the screen, as we have seen how some phones have gone from emerging cameras or notches to having holes on the screen. This is the case of the Huawei P40, which go from the notch drop of the P30, to the pill-like hole in the screen on the P40.
Let’s first look at the screen of the Huawei P40. A detail that we love is that Huawei has opted to keep the flat screen on this model, with very small frames, probably close to the maximum that can be achieved without curving the phone screen.
The P40 Pro bets on a curved screen on its 4 sides
In the case of the Huawei P40 Pro, things change a lot. The first renders of the phone let us know that the glass of its screen would be curved on all four sides. This press image allows us to corroborate precisely that, because we can see how in the upper part and in the lower part there is also a kind of curve (although in the lower part we still see a slight edge). This causes the corners of the phone to feel a little strange to the eye, but you will have to see how they look in person.
With the Huawei P40 Pro, the hole in the screen gets even bigger, wider to be exact, so hopefully, it probably has two front cameras and a 3D ToF for advanced facial recognition. In the case of the normal P40, we would prefer to see a single front camera along with this facial ID, it would seem more useful to us than having a wide-angle camera.
