Huawei P40 Pro tipped to Feature a 2K OLED display with 120Hz refresh rate & a massive 5500mAh Graphene Battery with 50W fast-charging

Huawei P20 Pro was the first phone to feature a triple-camera layout, and now the upcoming iteration of Huawei’s P-series promises to be the pioneer of graphene-powered smartphones. While it remains to be officially confirmed, a leak reveals that the yet-to-be-announced Huawei P40 will pack a 2k OLED display with 5,500 mAh graphene battery.

Huawei is planning on globally releasing the Huawei P40 Pro and P40 in the first quarter of the year 2020, said a report from The Information. Owing to the unfair U.S. trade ban, Huawei still hasn’t launched the Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro properly outside of China. The otherwise excellent flagships lack Google’s Mobile Services, and Huawei hasn’t shared a global release schedule for these. So it’ll be interesting to see the approach Huawei takes to launch the P40 duo globally.

The report details that the graphene battery will allow Huawei P40 to boost the capacity while also shrinking the size of the power cell when compared to traditional Li-Ion batteries by 70 percent. The graphene battery will support 50W rapid charging technology that can charge the phone to full capacity in under 45 minutes.

The battery details aside, the leak also gives us a sneak peek into the spec sheet for Huawei P40 Pro. You get a 6.5-inch 2k OLED waterfall display – the kind we’ve seen on multiple Vivo flagships. The OLED waterfall display will lop off physical power buttons and will produce a QHD+ resolution and a 120 Hz refresh rate. If the tipster is to be believed, it will debut with a screen-to-body ratio of roughly 98 percent.

Carrying a Higher Huawei Price tag than before, the internals will be baked into a Kirin 990 5G chipset, and it will run on an EMUI-10-skinned Android 10. On the back, you’re likely looking at a penta-lens array, crafted by Leica. The primary Sony lens will offer Optical Image Stabilization (OIS), alongside a 20-megapixel ultrawide-angle shooter and a 12-megapixel periscope sensor.

Huawei usually releases its P-series flagship at the beginning of the year, and its Mate flagship around the end of the year. And if Huawei’s previous release schedule is anything to go by, we might see the P40 duo hit the store shelves by March, hopefully including Pakistan.
