Huawei P40 Pro leaked

Hot off the press after Samsungs Unpacked ddate being confirmed, Huawei’s P40 and P40 Pro look set to be with us in late March after serial leaker evleaks revealed the release date and a detailed image featuring a new variant of the phone – the Premium Edition complete with five rear cameras.

He also tweeted a date – 26 March – which presumably is the launch date of the new phones. The main takeaway from the image shared by evleaks is the fact there are five lenses on the rear of the new Kirin 990-based flagship phone. Previous predictions had set the number of lenses at four, but it appears that this Premium Edition could sit above the P40 Pro.

As well as the Sony IMX686 64-megapixel sensor, we’re expecting a telephoto 10x zoom lens, a wide-angle camera and time-of-flight sensor, too. The fifth lens could be a macro camera. This load-out matches one of the previous sets of camera stats that leaked.

There are also two cameras punched out of the front of the phone (there’s no notch as a result) Crucially the renders also reveal physical volume buttons are present, unlike on September’s Mate 30 Pro which had virtual volume buttons.

The latest reveal comes fresh from leaks of the P40 design and P40 Pro colours earlier this week.

However, in addition to the previously announced finishes, there is also set to be a ceramic variant. We suspect that this will be limited to the so-called Premium Edition seen here.

The future of these devices is a little up in the air though – while they’ll undoubtedly provide hardware worthy of following up the P30 Pro and Mate 30 Pro, we still don’t know if they’ll be able to run Google apps after Huawei’s US trade ban that’s still rumbling on.
