Huawei P40 Pro Specs and Features
According to the analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the new P40 Pro will come with a 10X Optical Zoom Lens and will use a periscope camera mechanism having mirrors and prism to get high-resolution zoom shots.
According to him, the P40 Pro will integrate a 12 MP Telephoto lens with an f/4.0 aperture. On the other hand, the Huawei P40 will come with 5X Optical Zoom Lens.
The Huawei P40 Pro will have really impressive cameras with a Penta-Camera module with a new primary sensor with a high-resolution lens.
Also, a recent report suggests that the new Huawei mobile can come with the 64-megapixel Sony IMX686 sensor (also used in the Xiaomi K30 PRO). As shown in the above image, there are 4 lenses vertically aligned and a periscope lens is present at the right side of the assembly.
Additionally, the phone can come with a 20 Megapixel ultra-wide lens and a 3D TOF sensor. The front side has a punch-hole Dual camera setup for clicking selfies. The front camera can have a 32 Megapixel and an 8 MP lens for better portrait selfies.
Further, the phone will run on the newly launched Kirin 990 Octa-Core Processor, which is very close to the Apple A13 or the Snapdragon 865 in terms of the multi-core performance.
