Battery, the most integral part of a smartphone that powers every component is often ignored. Now, people have started paying close attention to the battery size and how much output it produces. We have started seeing larger batteries with higher battery life & faster-charging technologies. Huawei is about to overtake all other technologies presumably with the upcoming Huawei P40 Pro. According to a rumor, Huawei might include a graphene-based battery in 2020 Huawei P40 Pro although it is speculation as to the source for this not Huawei.
The tweet suggests that Huawei will introduce a powerful graphene technology on P40 Pro’s battery by 2020. For years, Huawei has been working on similar technology. Some of the phones now have graphene to reduce the operating temperature of the batteries. Now that the batteries will be made with graphene technology, it will increase the output drastically. Graphene batteries are touted to produce higher battery life (higher capacity) in a smaller volume.
Huawei has already tested the graphene-based batteries on its base stations and it proved to be successful. The batteries did increased cell’s lifespan so this could be the future of smartphones as well.
Apparently, the tweet also states that the P40 Pro, the successor to Huawei P30 Pro, will carry a battery size of 5,500 mAh associated with the 50W fast charging technology to completely charge the battery to 100% in just 45 minutes. If it turns out to be true, Huawei P40 Pro will be a powerhouse for more than a day on even the heaviest use.
The tweet also claims certain specifications that the phone will have such as a 6.5” OLED panel with a dual-punch hole camera. The back will be populated with a Penta-camera setup. The camera setup will be presumably in the same configuration as P30 Pro or it could be based on circular camera bump with Halo ring as we have seen with Huawei Mate 30 Pro. The phone might have a 108MP primary shooter, a 20MP ultrawide sensor, 12MP telephoto, a ToF, and a dedicated macro lens to start with.
Huawei Mate 30 Pro has been available for months and yet, it hasn’t seen a worldwide launch. Although Huawei has launched the device in some countries while others are in tow this month, the phone will still have Android but without any Google services. This will probably discourage international customers where Google services and apps are imperative. Huawei P40 Pro might face the same fate but let’s see.
