Chinese smartphone manufacturer Huawei’s upcoming ‘P40’ series smartphones are expected to launch in March this year and now a recent leak has hinted that the upcoming series may have three flagship variants.

According to a Twitter leaker “Teme”, who is known for his Huawei-related leaks, has recently claimed that one of these models could be a Porsche or a Max edition device.

In another tweet, he said the camera design could “still be more like a P30 pro, while the design of the camera in the third edition may feature a rectangular camera design”.

Richard Yu, the head of Huawei’s consumer business recently revealed P40 series smartphones to run its own HarmonyOS operating system instead of Google’s Android.

He also confirmed that the HarmonyOS is now ready for smartphones but the company is waiting to see if the situation with the US changes.

In addition, Yu also revealed that Huawei has been considering selling its Kirin processors to other companies in industries such as the Internet of Things (IoT) and robotics.

Sending a messege to the US that it can do without Google Maps, Chinese telecom and handset giant Huawei has now struck a partnership with Dutch location technology provider TomTom, which will allow it to use the companys maps, traffic information and navigation software to develop its own mobile apps.

Fortunately for Huawei, TomTom isn’t just a new player in that field, having specialised in navigation services and devices for more than two decades now.

The arrangement had been struck a while back, according to TomTom’s Remco Meerstra, but hadn’t been revealed until now. The company declined to share more details, Engadget reported on Monday.

This partnership is almost providential just as the Dutch location technology firm decided to shift its focus away from hardware and into licensing software and selling services.

And even better, it isn’t affected by the US Entity List ban on Huawei, according to Slash Gear.
