Huawei P40 renders leak; five rear cameras


In our recent K30 Pro news. We said that the company’s CEO has indirectly revealed that the smartphone will be launched next year March. In that same news, we referred to the Huawei P40 series arriving in March 2020 as well. Now, the renders of the Huawei P40 has surfaced and that hints that the smartphone might be launched earlier than expected. Speculations had it that the smartphone might be launched in January or at MWC in February.


The render reveals the key features as well as the image of the smartphone which shows the placement of each keys. For example in the image of the smartphone below, you can see that the smartphone will have a curved display like it’s elder brothers, the Mate 30 series. If you look at the rear of the device, you can see that the camera slightly protrudes from the back and from the look of things, it is probably housing four cameras.

The P40 series has been speculated to come shipped with a Hisilicon Kirin 990 SoC. The Kirin 990 chipset is actually fading away as by next year September, the company will introduce a new SoC which is the Kirin 1020 and it will now becomes the successor of the Kirin 990. It is likely the Huawei Mate 40 series that will first rock this awesome new chip. But anyways, who knows? Huawei might launch the P40 series with the Kirin 1020 but it’s render appearing now means that the device launch date is not far as we have been expecting, fingers crossed.
