Both models of the P40 appear to be 5G compatible and both pack triple cameras with different specs. The P40 Pro adds a time of flight sensor, larger screen and larger battery while the smaller has a flat display rather than the Pro’s curved, bezel-less appearance.

Both phones seem to have dual front facing camera cut outs in the top left of the display. They’ll be Huawei’s first P series phones without Google apps and services as the company remains on a US entity list and is barred from doing business with American companies including Google.

Argawal also says there will be a third P40 Pro Plus 5G with five rear camera sensors. There are too many phones, aren’t there?

Fellow leaker Evan Blass had previously revealed the full design and colours of the P40 phones. 

Huawei also is reportedly expecting a year on year loss for the first time ever for its mobile division owing to the US trade ban. While sales should not be affected too much in China where hardly anyone uses Google services, an expensive phone without them in Europe is not an easy sell, and sales have dropped sharply. Its Mate 30 Pro has only become recently available in the UK despite being launched back in September.
