With earlier reports initially saying that these devices may not support 5G technology, this new bit of information comes as a welcome surprise with most Huawei followers not expecting the Huawei P40 to come with 5G compatibility straight from the box.
The Huawei P40 Pro
This may be due to the fact that both smartphones will come with the latest Kirin 990 chipset, which is known to support 5G technology. Both phones have surfaced on the website of Chinese communications regulator TENAA. Any phone to be released in China is first certified by TENAA before they can be listed for release.
There are also reports that the Huawei P40 Pro will sport a display of 6.7-inches, with the P40 suspected to be around 6.2-inches. They are set to have a 120Hz screen refresh rate and an in-display fingerprint scanner.
Rumours surrounding the launch say that the event will likely hold on the 26th of March, but with fears of the coronavirus outbreak, it remains to be seen if the event will hold on this date or if it will eventually get moved to a later date.
