Huawei P40 series set to launch today: Check out expected price, specs, how to watch livestream
At a time when tech companies are cancelling launch events owing to the coronavirus outbreak, Huawei is going ahead with the launch of its P40 series smartphones.
Coronavirus has forced tech companies such as Realme, Xiaomi and Vivo to postpone their launch events. At a time when manufacturing plants have halted production and countries have been put on lockdown, Huawei is going ahead with the launch of its P40 series smartphones.
The company is hosting an online-only event to launch its next generation P-series smartphone, which consists of the Huawei P40 and the Huawei P40 Pro smartphones. However, some reports hint that the company could also launch a third smartphone -- the Huawei P40 Pro+ -- at the launch event. In addition to that, we are also likely to hear more about the company's App Gallery, which it claims is the third largest app store in the world after Google's Play Store and Apple's App Store.
