Huawei P40 Pro+

At the core, the P40 Pro Plus 5G runs on a 5G-capable Kirin 990 chipset. The phone will be available in multiple memory configurations maxing up to 8GB RAM and 512GB onboard storage.

And coming to the software, you have Android 10 based EMUI 10.1 but without Google services. Instead, you get Huawei Mobile Services and App Gallery. The bag of tricks includes things like split-screen multitasking, Huawei’s own Celia voice assistant, a video-calling app called MeeTime. On-stage, Huawei showcased a flock of content and app partners. It also welcomed devs from all across the globe to join the club.

On the surface, you get a 6.58″ curved 90Hz display that overflows all the way. This panel sports DCI-P3 and HDR10+. There is an in-screen fingerprint reader. Within that dual-punch-hole lies a 32MP sensor and an IR depth-sensing module.
