Leak: Huawei P40 Pro Premium will join P40 and P40 Pro, have 10x zoom camera

Peter, 17 January 2020

Yesterday, we saw renders of the Huawei P40 Pro with four cameras on the back, a knock against rumors of a penta-camera setup. Today, new renders appear that show both four and five cameras – what’s going on?

The second set of renders come from the reliable @evleaks. What seems to be happening is that Huawei will add three new phones to the flagship P-series instead of the usual two. Apple did it and so did Samsung, so why not Huawei?

New leak shows Huawei P40 Pro Premium edition will join P40 and P40 Pro, have 10x zoom camera

Having a closer look reveals something even more interesting – the premiere model (the one with five cameras), dubbed Huawei P40 Pro Premium Edition, has a periscope telephoto lens with 240mm focal length.

Assuming that the main camera has a 24mm lens, that’s 10x optical zoom. Compare that to the four camera model, the Huawei P40 Pro, which has a 125mm periscope lens. That should be 5x optical zoom.

Both versions have an 18mm ultra wide camera. The two additional cameras on the P40 Pro Premium are probably a dedicated macro cam and a 3D ToF sensor. The P40 Pro will have a ToF sensor, according to Teme, another leakster covering the P40 phones.

As for the base model, the Huawei P40, we already saw that it will have a 17mm ultra wide and a standard 80mm telephoto lens (so, 3x optical zoom). According to Teme, the Huawei P40 will have a 52MP main camera (1/1.3” sensor), 40MP cine camera (1/1.5” sensor) and an 8MP tele camera.

I wish it will be wider than P20 pro. I am admired of the dimensions of galaxy note 4. It seems that the market trend is to reduce width and increase length. I wish to find a mobile with the same dimensions of galaxy Note 4.
