Leaked Huawei P40 Pro renders show quad-edge display, Galaxy S11-like camera44
A new Galaxy S11-like camera module on the back
Hemmerstoffer claims the regular Huawei P40 features as many as four rear cameras but warns that he isn't sure about the number of sensors planned for the Pro-branded model. Rumors do suggest, however, that up to five cameras could be on the way.
The rest of the back panel is the usual affair, meaning it'll feature the Huawei logo towards the bottom and likely be made out of glass so the company can offer its wireless charging and reverse wireless charging features.
The display is where things get exciting on the P40 Pro
Huawei introduced a curved-edge display on the P30 Pro earlier this year and doesn't have any plans to ditch the technology on next year's product. In fact, if these renders are anything to go by, the company is looking to take things even further by adopting a quad-edge display on the Huawei P40 Pro.
The move means the flagship smartphone will feature curved edges along the top and bottom of the display in addition to the sides. This change should translate into an incredible 100% screen-to-body ratio, although it remains to be seen where the selfie camera will be positioned.
The Huawei P40's front panel is much more traditional
Not everybody is a fan of curved-edge panels and quad-edge alternatives will probably be even more controversial. Fortunately, the standard Huawei P40 features a much more traditional flat panel that'll incorporate either punch-hole or notch technology for the selfie camera.
The regular display is rather unsurprisingly accompanied by what seems to be a standard aluminum frame. But in what may come as a disappointment to more hardcore smartphone fans, the brand appears to have ditched the much-loved 3.5mm headphone jack.
On the upside, the change will probably allow for a noticeably larger battery which should help significantly if a 5G variant of the device is planned. After all, despite the advancements that have been made recently, 5G modems are still considerably more power-hungry than their 4G LTE counterparts.
