Huawei P40

According to Huawei’s consumer business CEO, Yu Chengdong, the company still has a big move with respect to the recently released Huawei P40 series. His words suggest that we will have to wait for its Chinese launch on April 8th for this “big move”. As of now, there are already speculations on what this “big move” can be. While many believe that it is Huawei Map, others think that Huawei Search App is on its way. There are also reports that Huawei could unveil a large-screen product. However, we do not see how this relates to the Huawei P40 series. 

Recall that Huawei recently released the Huawei P40 series. This series has Huawei P40, P40 Pro and P40 Pro+. These smartphones come with Huawei’s 5G Kirin 990 processor. While the P40 Pro and Pro+ use the same 6.58-inch 90Hz screen, the P40 uses a 6.1-inch OLED display.
