New Huawei P40 series renders show off the series' minimal bezels and curves that are to die for

Fancy a quad-curved display this year? Well, the P40 Pro may be your best bet, with new promotional renders show the device's minimal bezels too. The P40 may suit those who are looking for a more practical design though, albeit one that still has a high screen-to-body ratio.

Due to launch on March 26, several seemingly legitimate promotional renders of the P40 series have now appeared online. Published by the likes of @ishanagarwal24 and /LEAKS, the renders offer a detailed look at the design of the P40 and P40 Pro.

While the P40 may be the more practical of the two devices to hold, the P40 Pro is likely to the more eye-catching with its minimal bezels and quad-curved display. By contrast, the P40 will have a flat display as previous rumours have suggested. Do not be surprised if retail units of both devices have thicker bezels than these renders suggest though, as this has often proven the case with past smartphone releases.

The renders confirm that Huawei will be equipping both devices with dual front-facing cameras. These will both sit behind display cut-outs, now commonly known as a pill-shaped or punch-hole displays. There is no indication that the P40 Pro will feature a ToF sensor or a third lens as Huawei has teased previously, though.

If you were in any doubt, the P40 Pro will have more rear-facing cameras than the regular P40. Incidentally, both devices should feature in-display fingerprint scanners and the Kirin 990 chipset. While these renders only show the P40 series coming in three colours, more colours have appeared in other promotional images. 

Overall, these renders suggest that Huawei is largely remaining true to the design of the P30 series. The switch to a punch-hole display rather than a notch or some another camera solution appears to have irked some people who follow @ishanagarwal24, though.
