    Huawei has quietly introduced a new version of its P40 flagship. The latest version comes with LTE connectivity. Interestingly, the new model has launched almost one year after the main flagship series debuted.

    Huawei P40 LTE will join other variants in the lineup that consists of P40 Lite, P40 Lite 5G, P40 Lite E, P40 5G, P40 Pro, and P40 Pro Plus. The latest model is priced at CNY 3,988 ( 45,000 approximately).

    In terms of specifications, Huawei P40 LTE comes with a 6.1-inch display with Full HD+ resolution and a standard 60Hz refresh rate. The display also comes with an in-screen fingerprint reader. The phone comes with IP53 certification as well.

    It runs on the in-house Kirin 990 4G chipset. It has 8GB of RAM and 128GB of built-in storage. A 3,800mAh battery powers the phone. The P40 4G also ships with 22.5W fast charging support.

    In the camera department, it has a triple-sensor on the back. The configuration includes a 50-megapixel SuperSensing primary sensor, a 16-megapixel ultrawide sensor, and an 8-megapixel telephoto sensor with OIS support. The camera is also said to deliver 30x digital zoom. On the front, it has a 32-megapixel dual-camera setup.

    That said, Huawei is gearing up for the launch of its new flagship series next month. According to reports, Huawei will launch at least three models -- P50, P50 Pro, and P50 Pro Plus. The Huawei P50 is said to run on the Kirin 9000E chipset, while the P50 Pro and P50 Pro+ will be powered by the flagship Kirin 9000 chipset.

    Reports further say the base model will have a 90Hz screen. The P50 Pro and P50 Pro Plus will come with a better 120Hz display. The screen sizes will also vary. The vanilla P50 will have a smaller 6.1-inch display. The P50 Pro and P50 Pro Plus will come with 6.6-inch and 6.8-inch screens, respectively.
