Huawei launches four of devices, this is the new Huawei P40 series

Huawei launched its new range of flagship smartphones during a global launch live stream on 26 March 2020.

The company showed off four new devices which are the P40 Lite, P40, P40 Pro and P40 pro Plus which offer impressive hardware and powerful new features.

Both the P40 and P40 Pro both feature HiSilicon Kirin 990 chipsets with 5G support, which means that this new lineup of devices will be able to connect to 5G networks in supported regions.

The company also announced the P40 Pro Plus, which offers an extra periscope lens and improved hardware specifications.

The new smartphones feature Quad-Curved Overflow display that provides a bezel-less aesthetic.

This allows the OLED screen on the P40 Pro to wrap around the sides of the phone and make the display truly bezel-less.

“The Huawei P Series has always been about innovative aesthetics and making premium imaging hardware accessible, representing the very best of industrial design and technology,” said Huawei CBG CEO Richard Yu.

“With an outstanding sensor, camera systems that we co-engineered with Leica, powerful chipset and Huawei XD Fusion Engine, the Huawei P40 Series exemplifies our focus and offers an all-day Super Definition experience to help consumers realise their creative vision.”

This new range of smartphones will run Huawei Mobile Services (HMS) instead of Google Mobile Services (GMS) on the Android 10 operating system.

HMS is a replacement for Google Mobile Services, which runs natively on Android devices and enables certain features and services.

The new HMS will link with users Huawei account, instead of a Google account to provide a similar underlying layer of functionality across the device.

Huawei also announced its own voice assistant which responds to “Hey Celia” and is positioned to compete with solutions such as Google Assistant, Bixby, and Siri.

“In future, we will launch the ‘Hey Celia’ AI assistant in more countries,” Yu said.

Huawei’s P40 and P40 Pro devices will be available in five colours: Black, Deep Sea Blue, Ice White, Silver Frost, and Blush Gold.

The Huawei P40 Pro Plus will be available in Ceramic Black and White.
