Huawei is expected to launch its P40 lineup of flagship smartphones in the first quarter of this year. However, late last week leaked press renders of the upcoming Huawei P40 Pro surfaced online, giving us our first look at the device. The renders revealed that the device will feature a quad-camera setup, a curved display, and a pill-shaped punch-hole cutout to house the dual selfie cameras. Now, renowned leakster @evleaks has revealed that Huawei will be offering another variant of the P40 Pro with a slightly more premium design and features.
As per the latest leaked renders shared on Twitter, Huawei will be launching a P40 Pro “Premium Edition” alongside the regular P40 Pro and the P40. Unlike the regular P40, the Huawei P40 Pro “Premium Edition” will feature a ceramic back with a penta-camera setup. The penta-camera setup on the premium edition device is expected to feature a periscope zoom lens, a regular wide-angle lens, an ultra-wide-angle lens, and a ToF sensor like the regular P40 Pro.
However, we currently have no clue about the fifth sensor on the device. All of these cameras are enclosed within a rectangular camera module which fits the general aesthetic of other late 2019/2020 smartphones, much like the Galaxy S20 lineup. It’s also worth noting that the P40 Pro “Premium Edition” isn’t the first device to feature a ceramic backplate. We’ve previously seen a similar aesthetic on several devices, including the Xiaomi Mi MIX series, the Galaxy S10+, and Huawei’s own Ascend P7.
