Huawei P40 Pro will have graphene battery: what changes

The Huawei P40 and P40 Pro will be presented in early 2020: here's how the two new top of the range will look like

While waiting to solve the problems with the U.S. government that for the moment do not allow Huawei to buy products from U.S. suppliers (Google and Qualcomm in the lead), the Chinese company continues to work on the development of new smartphones. After the Huawei Nova 6, the giant is working on the new Huawei P40 and P40 Pro, expected for the first quarter of 2020 (most likely they will be presented at the Mobile World Congress 2020 or in March in an ad hoc event).

For the moment there are many uncertainties about the two new devices and their release on the European market, but one thing is certain: they will be top of the range smartphones. Huawei wants to equip the P40 series with new graphene batteries that will replace the classic lithium battery that has dominated the smartphone world so far. This is a big step forward: graphene batteries are smaller in size than lithium batteries and at the same time ensure greater autonomy. Here's what the Huawei P40 spec sheet will look like.

The Huawei P40 features

Rumors are starting to come out about the possible Huawei P40 spec sheet and the P40 Pro. The smartphone is expected to have the Kirin 990 5G processor that in addition to ensuring excellent performance also allows you to connect to the new super-fast network. In support there will be 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage, expandable via nanoSD (format used only by Huawei smartphones). The OLED screen will be 6.5 inches with QuadHD+ resolution and 120 Hz refresh rate.

The photo compartment is very interesting, as in all top-of-the-line smartphones from the Chinese company. At the back there is a 40+ megapixel main sensor, supported by a 20 megapixel wide-angle camera, a 12 megapixel periscope sensor, a macro sensor and a depth of field sensor. In the front there will be as many as two cameras: the main sensor will be flanked by a wide-angle lens. The smartphone will come to market with Android 10 and EMUI 10.

What changes with the graphene battery

If the rumors about the presence of the graphene battery are confirmed, it would be a big step forward for the mobile world. We've been talking about replacing lithium-ion batteries with graphene ones for several years, and the time seems to have finally come. What does it change for the user? Graphene batteries should ensure a longer autonomy allowing you to cover up to two days on a single charge. The battery of the Huawei P40 is expected to be 5,500mAh supported by 50W fast charging.

When the Huawei P40 comes out

The smartphone is expected in the first quarter of 2020. There is no certain date for the device's unveiling yet, but it should be around the end of February to early March. It should be noted that the problems between Huawei and the U.S. government are still not resolved and the smartphone might arrive in Europe with a bit of a delay.
