Huawei has announced that it will launch its next flagship devices, the Huawei P40 and Huawei P40 Pro, in March. According to Richard Yu, the phones will run EMUI 10 based on Android 10. However, they will not have Google Mobile Services on board. Instead, they will feature the Huawei Mobile Services.
Richard Yu disclosed that the devices will come with a never-before-seen design. They will also feature improvements in camera image quality, chipset performance, and battery life. The Huawei P40 and Huawei P40 Pro will likely use the Kirin 990 5G chipset. The Huawei Mate 40 may launch later in the year with the Kirin 1020 SoC.
The main difference between the Huawei P40 and P40 Pro devices and the P30 series is the absence of Google apps on the former. Instead of the Google apps, Huawei is resorting to its own alternatives.
Huawei’s in-house OS, HarmonyOS, is currently not coming to phones. Huawei has confirmed that it is committed to using Android to power its smartphones. However, HarmonyOS is used in other smart devices such as smart TVs and watches.
The Huawei P40 series will launch in Paris at the end of March 2020.
