Smartphones are focusing more on camera and display than battery life these days which is good for photography lovers. A new rendered case for the Huawei P40 Pro revealed that the upcoming flagship model may feature a penta camera setup and while it sounds like overkill for the smartphone camera, if it delivers in terms of quality, then it’s all good for buyers.
After going with the horizontal camera placement in many phones including those from Huawei and Samsung, smartphone manufacturers are now focusing on rectangular vertical placement of cameras as their numbers increase. A total of five cameras will be mounted on the rear side of the Huawei P40 Pro and the case cutout renders indicate that it looks a lot like the Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus.
Expect a Display with Minimal Curve
Huawei is going with the punch hole design which has become the most preferred method for almost all smartphone manufacturers. While some do focus on sliding cameras, they are not commonly found everywhere and it is also due to the fact that you need the camera always on in order to scan your face for unlocking the device. The design is on par with other phones but the company may bring in better performances made possible by their latest chipset.
Based on the leaks and inside sources, it has been deduced that the Huawei P40 Pro will feature 10x optical zoom and one of the lenses in this penta camera setup will be dedicated to this aspect. Huawei has already added the dual punch-hole camera in their Nova 6 5G phone but the curves on the side of the display are being kept to the bare minimum. Instead of making them completely curved which makes the device more fragile, the company is skipping the Mate 30 Pro design to make their newer model more durable or at least let users handle it without too much care.
An almost flat display is also rumored to be a part of this flagship phone and for good reasons, the designers have brought in hardware buttons to control volume and power. It is a welcome addition as touch buttons are not always accurate and may or may not last as long as conventional buttons do. The 3.5 mm headphone jack is not found in the Pro model. The P40 Pro powered by Kirin 990 is expected to be launched in March but will not support Google services.
