8GB RAM variant of the Huawei P40 Pro 5G surfaced on Geekbench
This listing also reveals that the phone will include 8GB of RAM. It is possible that this will be its entry-level model, and that there will be another variant with 12GB of RAM. In fact, that is exactly what we're expecting.
Geekbench also confirms that the Kirin 990 will fuel the Huawei P40 Pro 5G. That chip hasn't been listed by its name, but the 'HiSilicon' branding is a dead giveaway.
This phone managed to score 776 points in the single-core, and 3,182 points in the multi-core test on Geekbench. Don't pay too much attention to that, though, as this is just a test unit.
The Huawei P40 Pro 5G will be one of the three P40 flagship devices that will launch later this month. Huawei is planning to announce them on March 26, during an online-only event.
The other two phones are the Huawei P40 and P40 Pro PE. The Huawei P40 Pro will probably be the phone that most people will be interested in. It will be that sweet-spot for consumers.
The P40 Pro PE model will include a ceramic backplate
The Huawei P40 and P40 Pro will be made out of metal and glass, while the 'PE' model will include ceramic on its back. The P40 will be the only phone in the series to sport a flat display.
The Huawei P40 is expected to include three cameras on the back. The P40 Pro will sport four cameras back there, while the 'PE' will upgrade that to five cameras. The latter two phones will include a periscope-style camera on the back.
All three devices are expected to include a pill-shaped display camera hole. The Huawei P40 Pro PE may even ship with three cameras on the front, while the other two phones will probably include two.
As already mentioned, Android 10 will come pre-installed, along with Huawei's EMUI skin. Google's services will not be a part of the package, though. Huawei will pre-installed its HMS package, along with the AppGallery.
Leica's lenses will be included on all three smartphones, and Huawei is betting big on cameras once again. Cameras will be the main focus of these devices, at least according to Huawei's teasers.
It will be interesting to see how popular will the Huawei P40 series be without Google services. Some consumers were probably hoping that the ban will be lifted a while back, and that the P40 series will include Google services, but that will not happen.
