Last December, Huawei confirmed that it will launch its flagship P40 series in March in Paris. In the same month, the renders of both the standard and Pro variants of the P40 had surfaced online, giving us a first look at the smartphone’s design. Now a new leak from a case manufacturer has given us a solid glimpse at the alleged Huawei P40 Pro. The case reveals a camera design that is similar to the one we saw in exclusive renders. The Huawei P40 series is tipped to come with a better camera, processor and battery life.
Going by the Huawei P40 Pro case, the smartphone is seen sporting a rectangular camera module on the back. It houses a vertically stacked penta-camera setup. If you look closely, you will find a square-shape sensor beside the first sensor on the top. It is expected to be a telephoto or periscope lens, since the Huawei P40 Pro is said to feature a 10x optical zoom. On the front, the smartphone has a punch-hole cutout for dual selfie cameras at the top left corner. The Huawei P40 Pro is rumoured to pack a total of seven cameras onboard.
The case renders reveal physical hardware buttons on the right side. The top of the phone has cutouts likely for the microphone or IR blaster. The USB-C port and speaker grille are located at the bottom.
According to the rumours, the Huawei P40 Pro is expected to offer a 6.5-inch FHD+ OLED display featuring a 120Hz refresh rate panel. Under the hood the smartphone may be equipped with Kirin 990 SoC with up to 12GB RAM and 256GB internal storage. The Huawei P40 series will run on Android 10 with EMUI on the top, and is unlikely to ship with Google services due to the ongoing Huawei ban in the US.
