Huawei is finally releasing a 4G-only P40 smartphone after almost a year of releasing the device. The new 4G LTE variant will be powered by the Kirin 990 chipset which is going to be the main difference between this and the 5G version released about a year earlier.
Just to remind you of the similarities between this device and the previous model in terms of specifications, you’ll be getting a 6.1-inch OLED display with a Full HD+ resolution and the annoying pill-shaped cut-out for the 32MP selfie cam and IR ToF module – the exact reason for the big cut-out.
As for the rear camera module, there is still the excellent 1/1.28″ 50MP main sensors alongside a 16MP ultrawide snapper and 8MP telephoto module capable of 3x optical zoom. The software side is covered by EMUI 10.1 on top of Android 10 with NO GMS of course.
In terms of design, the device comes in Dark Blue and Frost Silver and the pricing is within the mid-range price point which is US$618 (CNY 3,998) for the model with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage and sales already started yesterday in China if you’re in the East Asian country.
