When it comes to phone development, manufacturers are known to experiment with different designs and colors before settling for the final one. The Huawei P40 Pro is no exception and a leak has now given us a look at a color variant that didn’t make the final cut.
The Huawei P40 Pro launched earlier this year in five color variants – Silver Frost, Blush Gold Deep Sea Blue, Ice White, and Black. These photos show that the phone could have come in Aurora Green too.
Photos of the prototype were posted on Weibo by a user that goes by @秃头普拉斯/Bald plus. The images are also filled with easter eggs from the popular animated movie Frozen which is also where the P40 Pro got its codename, Elsa, from. How many of these easter eggs can you spot?
The Huawei P40 Pro has a 6.58-inch 2640 x 1200 display with a double punch hole for dual front-facing cameras. The display is OLED, curved, and has a 90Hz refresh rate.
Under the hood is a Kirin 990 5G processor paired with 8GB of RAM and UFS 3.0 storage that starts at 128GB and goes up to 512GB. The P40 Pro has quad rear cameras – a 50MP primary camera with OIS, a 12MP telephoto camera with a periscope lens that provides up to 5x optical zoom, a 40MP ultrawide angle camera, and a TOF 3D camera. In front are a 32MP primary camera and an infrared 3D camera for face unlock.
The Huawei P40 Pro flagship packs a 4200mAh battery with support for 40W fast wired charging, 27W fast wireless charging, and reverse wireless charging. It also has an in-display fingerprint scanner, support for storage expansion via Huawei’s proprietary Nano Memory card slot, and an IP68 rating.
At the moment, details of a successor are scarce, no thanks to the current state of Huawei’s chip business.
