On January 3rd, the whistleblower RODENT950 revealed that the P40 Pro’s four-curved screen was supplied by Samsung and LG Display. The revelation reveals an important point: The P40 Pro may use a curved screen. Starting with the Mate 20 series, Huawei’s flagship Pro version features curved screens such as the Mate 20 Pro, P30 Pro, Mate 30 Pro, etc., so the P40 series is likely to continue this strategy, using surface screens and possibly double-surface disurface screens.
There is no doubt that the punch-hole screen will be the trend of the flagship phone in 2020. From the second half of this year, the punch-hole screen has become the standard for each mobile phone, the nova6 series will be used to dig hole screen program.
Because the P40 series of large probability will use a punch-hole screen, where the P40 Pro may use a double-surface punch-hole screen, as to the location of the hole is not known for the time being.
The P40 series is expected to carry the Kirin 990 5G SOC in the core configuration. Using the industry’s most advanced 7nm plus EUV process, it integrates 5G Modem into the SOC for the first time and is the world’s first mobile terminal chip with more than 10.3 billion transistors.
It is worth noting that the Kirin 990 5G SOC is currently the only integrated flagship 5G SOC that has been commercially available for mass production.
In addition, the P40 series of images is also a big point of view. Sources say the P40 series will feature a periscope lens that supports higher-octane optical zoom. Unsurprisingly, the P40 Pro will dominate DxOMark, and it’s worth looking forward to.
According to Yu Chengdong, CEO of Huawei’s consumer business, the P40 series will be released in March and is worth looking forward to.
