(Pocket-lint) - The P40 series has now been launched by Huawei.

The P40 replaces the P30, while the P40 Pro succeeds the P30 Pro and we've put together the latest rumours on the differences between them. Check out: Huawei P40 Pro vs P30 Pro: What's the difference?

There's also a third handset, the P40 Pro Max which is a supercharged P40 Pro if you like, but it's not out yet.


P40 SIM-free price and release date

The Huawei P40 series release date is April 7 and the standard P40 costs £699.99 SIM-free from Carphone Warehouse.

The Huawei P40 Pro price is set at £899.99, again from Carphone Warehouse.

The Huawei P40 Pro Plus release date is June (yes, a little time to wait) and will cost 1,399 Euros (around £1,300).

Best Huawei P40 Pro 5G deals

We'll be bringing you all the latest contract deals when we get them. Plus, given that the P40 and P40 Pro won't have Google apps thanks to the US trade ban we'd say there's every chance there will be some rapid discounts soon after launch. 


Three is offering the Pro starting with 4GB for £42 a month, with £99 upfront. That's with a gift bundle worth £237: Huawei Freebuds 3, Huawei SuperCharge Wireless Car Charger or a Huawei Wireless Charger.
