The HUAWEI P40 series is going to be launched tomorrow, but it seems like some people might have been a bit too excited to reveal more about the latest flagship from HUAWEI. has posted a whole gallery of renders of the HUAWEI P40 and HUAWEI P40 Pro, as well as what might be the official specifications of the upcoming flagships.

For starters the HUAWEI P40 and P40 Pro is expected to tout fancy new 50MP UltraVision primary cameras. It will feature HUAWEI’s now-signature RYYB color filter array, which aims to improve low-light photography. HUAWEI has claimed that the 40MP Sony IMX600 SuperSpectrum which debuted in the HUAWEI P30 series can capture up to 40% more light than sensors sporting the regular RGGB color filters, so we can expect similar claims this time around. In addition to that, the 50MP UltraVision sensors are also expected to sport 4-in-1 pixel binning, which should culminate in 12.5MP images. The HUAWEI P40 Pro will also reportedly offer OIS on its main camera, while the HUAWEI P40 misses out on that.

The HUAWEI P40 Pro will also offer the 40MP f/1.8 ultra-wide camera which debuted in the HUAWEI Mate 30 Pro, while the HUAWEI P40 will come with a 16MP f/2.2 primary camera. The telephoto camera on the HUAWEI P40 Pro will be a 12MP f/3.4 periscopic zoom module which reportedly features a SuperSensing (i.e. RYYB color filter), while the standard model will only offer a 8MP f/2.4 zoom without the fancy mirrors. Of course, Leica’s branding is also here on the HUAWEI P40 series.

Another differentiating factor between the HUAWEI P40 Pro and P40 is the display. The HUAWEI P40 Pro will feature what looks like a curved panel while the HUAWEI P40 will get a flat one. The curvature doesn’t seem nearly as extreme as the one in the HUAWEI Mate 30 Pro though, as revealed in earlier rumors.

Aside from that, most of the specifications aren’t exactly all that exciting coming from the HUAWEI Mate 30 series. You get a Kirin 990 5G which seems to be standard across the HUAWEI P40 series. Of course, being a HUAWEI P40 series, that’s not all that surprising as HUAWEI usually release their latest chipsets and innovations with the HUAWEI Mate series, while the camera innovations will be unveiled in the HUAWEI P-series.
