Huawei is all set to introduce its latest flagship smartphones to the world on March 26, and as we’re getting closer to that date more and more leaks are starting to pop up. Yesterday we saw the P40 and P40 Pro in full frontal shots, and today famed leakster Evan Blass (a.k.a. @evleaks) is back with press renders that show two colourways for these phones, and their rears too.
We’ve got the black and silver versions here to gawk at, and once again the P40 Pro stands out with its excessively curvy display (looks like even the top and bottom edges are curved). It also has an extra camera on the back compared to the non-Pro model.
A different leak purportedly originating from Korea talks to us about the insane camera setup on the P40 Premium. This will be the third member of the flagship family (the P40 lite is already official but plays in the mid-range field). It’s still unclear whether it will be called P40 Premium or P40 Pro Premium or P40 Pro Premium Edition, but let’s hope it’s going to be the shortest version.
The P40 Premium will have not one but two telephoto cameras, it seems. A periscope module with f/4.0 aperture and 240mm equivalent lens will provide 10x optical zoom (at an unknown resolution), while an 8 MP f/2.0 80mm equivalent will have 3x optical zoom, out of a 1/4″ sensor. Both of these will come with PDAF and OIS.
The main sensor is a 52 MP 1/1.28″ type with f/1.8 aperture, PDAF, and OIS, and possible 13 MP output (if it’s a quad-Bayer unit). There’s also a 40 MP f/1.8 ultrawide camera with a 1/1.54″ sensor and PDAF. On the front sitting in a punch-hole to the left you’ll get a 32 MP f/2.0 1/2.8″ selfie snapper, aided by a ToF 3D camera for depth data and more secure face unlocking. Another such sensor will be on the rear as well to help with Portrait Mode shots.
Other expected specs of the P40 Premium include a 6.7″ 1440×3160 OLED touchscreen with 120Hz refresh rate, the Kirin 990 5G chipset, 12GB of RAM, and 512GB of storage (expandable through Huawei’s NM card standard). It will run Android 10 sans Google services, with EMUI 10.1 on top. The P40 and P40 Pro are expected to ship with ‘only’ 8GB of RAM and top out at 256GB of built-in storage.
