Rumors suggest that mobile giant Huawei, which has already introduced to the market several models of graphene-enhanced mobile devices, will also be using the material in its next major smartphone release - the P40 Pro, the successor to the P30 and P30 Pro. It’s not expected to be revealed until 2020, but it may well include an interesting battery-related breakthrough.
Huawei Mate P30 Pro
While not official in any way, Huawei may introduce graphene technology to the P40’s battery, increasing the capacity without drastically increasing the volume, and helping to speed up the charging. The battery will reportedly have a 5500mAh capacity, and be equipped with a 50W fast charge system to recharge it in 45 minutes. This will definitely be interesting, and a different use of graphene than the former cooling functions.
In addition to the battery, it’s speculated the Pro model of the Huawei P40 will have a 6.5-inch OLED screen with a 120Hz refresh rate and a dual hole-punch selfie camera, plus a similar waterfall-style look taken from the Mate 30 Pro. The phone may have a five-sensor camera produced with Leica on the back. The main lens may have 64-megapixels, and be joined by a 20-megapixel ultrawide lens, a 12-megapixel telephoto lens, plus a dedicated macro lens and a time-of-flight sensor too.
