Huawei P40 Series To Be Announced On A Live Stream This 26 March 2020

With a teaser on the camera in tow

The Huawei P40 series is one of our most anticipated smartphones in 2020 for good reason, and it looks like Huawei is ready to unveil their latest flagship this 26 March 2020.

Initially the launch was meant to happen in Paris, France, but of course just like many other events the launch will be held via live stream instead. For now the launch is set to happen 26 March at 13:00 GMT, which is 9pm Malaysian time.

Based on their announcement teaser, we get a sneak peek of the camera setup that shows on an impressively big bump that's bound to be related to the P40 series camera setup. It's rumoured that the device will have at least five cameras on the rear, with leaks revealing a possible 64MP main sensor – a Sony IMX686, purportedly – along with a 20MP ultra-wide camera, a 12MP telephoto (periscope) camera, a macro camera, and a time-of-flight (ToF) sensor for capturing depth.

The device is also rumoured to come with the Kirin 990 chipset for added power, with possible 5G variant of it being available. You can read more about these in our compilation here. It's important to note that the device will not come with Google Apps currently though if relations between Huawei and the US improve, it could be possible for Google Apps to return in the future for all Huawei devices.
