Huawei P40-series is set to launch on March 26, however, the prices of the whole lineup are still not clear. Several rumours and reports have indicated the premium features of the Huawei P40 and Huawei P40 Pro, but a new report has now highlighted the smartphones' variants along with their respective prices and the sale date in China. Earlier, a leak had also shown the European prices of the two smartphones. More will be known at the Huawei launch event at the end of this month.
As per the report by Chinese publication ITHome, both Huawei P40 and Huawei P40 Pro have three variants including multiple storage options. All the variants of the two smartphones have 8GB of RAM.

It is still unclear whether the Huawei P40-series will launch in India or not. However, the new report has suggested that the smartphones lineup will go on sale in China on April 12. Currently, it is rumoured that along with Huawei P40 and Huawei P40 Pro, the Chinese tech giant will also release Huawei P40 Lite and Huawei P40 Lite E. It will be interesting to see what Huawei will be offering with the upcoming smartphones as they will be competing with Oppo's latest flagship, the Oppo Find X2-series.
