So the Huawei P40 Pro is going to be the latest flagship phone from Huawei, which was supposed to compete directly with Samsung’s Galaxy S20 Ultra. But, because it doesn’t have one the key feature that is required in a modern smartphone it’s not going to compete with the S20 Ultra except for in China.
Not only is the display going to be curved at the sides, but it’s going to have a curved screen at the top and bottom as well. Not sure if that’s a good idea because accidental touch activations are going to a thing with this handset.
As you can see, Huawei is also going to put a tumor at the back in the name of the camera, which houses four cameras. The camera layout looks almost identical to the Galaxy S20 Plus’s setup expect the camera arrangement is a bit different.
On the front though, Huawei has decided to have a pill-shaped cutout for the front camera exactly like the Galaxy S10 Plus’s pill-shaped cutout except they have placed it on the left side.
It’s funny because a couple of months ago, Huawei’s CEO said they are the trendsetters when it comes to design and mocks Samsung for it, and now a few months later, they are copying Samsung’s design.

Anyway, Huawei has revealed that the launch event of the P40 Pro will be held in March which is just a couple of months away from now. So Huawei is blacklisted from using American tech which means they can’t use Google Apps and play store which also means their latest flagship the P40 Pro won’t have access to
Huawei has confirmed that they are not going to use Harmony OS in the P40 Pro instead just like the Mate 30 Pro, it’s going to have an open-source version of Android without Google apps.
The latest reports suggest that the US has zero plans to take Huawei out of the blacklist so Huawei has no choice but to create their app ecosystem and Huawei is using money to build an app ecosystem that could rival Google’s Play store.
Huawei has announced that it will make 26 million dollar investments to entice developers to create apps for their platform. They’re going to pay you if you make apps for their platform. Of course, they’re not going to pay everyone but only to the developers of the popular apps and games.
Also, they’ve announced that they’ll only keep 15% revenue cut from its developers, rather than the 30% tax levied by Google and Apple. Microsoft has tried this approach in the past with windows phone and failed miserably.
But Huawei has a massive presence in China; they sell nearly over 200 million smartphones a year in China alone so you never know this might work out for them, but the thing is if it’s going to work out it will take a few years until they can build a functional app ecosystem, in the short term, you can be sure that Huawei is going to have a tough time at least in the western market.
