Huawei P40 and P40 Pro complete spec leak suggests Leica-branded Ultra Vision camera, and more
Huawei is gearing up to launch its upcoming flagship P40 series through an online-only event on March 26, 2020. We are just a few days away from the launch, and in typical fashion of product launches, we already have a good idea of what to expect from the event. Huawei will be taking to stage to announce at least three smartphones: Huawei P40, P40 Pro, and P40 Pro Premium Edition. Now, most of the specifications of the devices have been leaked by leaker @IshanAgarwal, corroborating the information we have received from previous leaks.
The Huawei P40 is expected to come with a 6.1″ display with a wide hole in the display. Ishan says that the phone will have only one 32MP front-facing camera, but in the render that he shares in his tweet, we see two cameras for the front. Previous renders also showed off two front cameras, so we do not know the cause of this information conflict. The back camera setup will comprise of 50MP, 16MP, and 8MP “Leica Ultra Vision” sensors. One of these sensors would be a telephoto camera, as the specs indicate support for up to 30x digital zoom. There’s also Huawei XD Fusion Engine for Pictures, which sounds like specialized software image processing. The phone is expected to come with a 3,800 mAh battery, as well as the Kirin 990 with 5G support.

According to Ishan, the Huawei P40 Pro will come with a 6.58″ display that is expected to be curved on all four edges. The only slices of bezel visible on the front are on the corners. The camera setup on the Pro variant will be branded Leica Ultra Vision Quad Cam and will comprise of a 50MP, 40MP, 12MP, and a ToF sensor. As is visible, one of the sensors will be a periscopic zoom camera, capable of 50X SuperSensing Zoom with Telephoto Stabilisation. Huawei XD Fusion Engine for Pictures will also be present on this phone. The front camera will comprise of a 32MP sensor as well as a depth sensor. The P40 Pro will come with a 4,200 mAh battery, with support for 40W wired charge. The leaker is not very sure about the wireless charging speeds, and they could be either 40W or 27W wireless SuperCharge. Of course, the device will be powered by the Kirin 990.
Ishan did not detail the specifications of the Premium Edition yet. There’s also no real clarity on whether the camera sensors will adopt the conventional RGGB color filter or the newer RYYB color filter as seen on previous Huawei flagships. We hope to learn more about these details soon enough.
