On March 26th, Huawei will be announcing its flagship P40 series smartphones. The recently-unveiled Huawei P40 Lite is an upper mid-range phone whereas the P40 Lite E debuted as a budget-friendly phone. The P40 models that will go official later this month include Huawei P40, Huawei P40 Pro and the Huawei P40 Pro PE (Premium Edition) which will be debuting as the company’s first smartphone with five rear-mounted cameras. Ahead of the announcement, the Huawei P40 Pro PE has appeared on a South Korean retailer site. The listing has revealed the design and specifications of the smartphone.
The Huawei P40 Pro PE renders that have appeared on the retailer site show that the handset features an elliptical punch hole at the upper-left corner of the screen. While the curves of the screen cannot be seen clearly in the image, previous reports have claimed that its display is curved towards the left and right edges.
The right edge of the P40 Pro Premium Edition has a volume rocker and a power key. The rear of the device also appears to be curved towards the edges. A previous leak had claimed that the phone will be sporting a ceramic chassis. The top-left corner of the phone’s rear shell bears a rectangle-shaped camera module. It has a penta-lens setup, LED flash and some other camera related sensors.
