Huawei had three flagship smartphones today, the Huawei P40, P40 Pro, and P40 Pro+. We've already talked about them in our original announcement, and now it's time to take a closer look at the Huawei P40 series specifications.
Before we get down to it, however, it's worth noting that all three of these phones feature a frame made out of metal. The P40 and P40 Pro utilize glass backs, while the P40 Pro+ features ceramic on its back.
The Huawei P40 is the smallest, and it is the only one that has a flat display. The P40 Pro and P40 Pro+ are quite similar, and both include the same curved display (curved on all four sides).
Do note that all three phones also offers Directional Audio Zoom, thanks to three microphones that are included. Android 10 comes pre-installed on all three smartphones, along with EMUI 10.1.
As part of EMUI 10.1, Huawei announced several new features, such as drag-and-drop feature from one window to the other, and its very own virtual assistant calle d 'Celia'. That being said, let's take a look at their specs, starting with the P40.
