KUALA LUMPUR, April 2 — This is it, the latest Huawei P40 and P40 Pro will be announced in Malaysia on the 2nd April 2020.

On top of that, Huawei Malaysia will also reveal the local availability and pricing for the Huawei MatePad Pro and the new Watch GT 2e.

The Malaysian launch is happening at 6pm today. It will be streamed live via Huawei Malaysia’s YouTube channel or via its Facebook page.

Huawei P40 and P40 Pro

As spotted earlier, the Chinese smartphone maker will bring in the P40 and P40 Pro. The top-of-the-line P40 Pro+ will be released much later. According to the European specs, the P40 will come with 8GB RAM + 128GB storage while the Pro version gets 8GB RAM + 256GB storage.

In Europe, the P40 is priced at €799 (about RM3,831) while the P40 Pro is going for €999 (about RM4,790). Do note that European pricing is significantly higher so do expect lower prices when it is announced locally. You can learn more about the Huawei P40 Pro in our first impressions post.
