Disclosure on Twitter says that there is a possibility of releasing a third flagship in the new Huawei P40 series alongside Huawei P40 pro. There is also an image of the P40 product line showing the arrangement of the phone’s triple camera.
The Huawei P40 Series is reported to have three flagship phones this time around. According to the company, the P40 and P40 Pro are expected to be released, as well as a premium model Porsche version or Pro Max version. Disclosed versions should not be confused with several previously published reports on the Huawei P40 Lite. It is said that the P40 Lite is also part of the P40 series, but not a flagship model. If the new rumor is true, the Huawei P40 Pro Porsche version or P40 Pro Max will be released as the third flagship phone in the P40 family. The new Huawei P40 series is going to be released in March this year.
Moreover, a disclosure called RODENT950 on Twitter has claimed that there will be three models of the P40 series. When asked if he meant P40, P40 Pro and P40 Lite, he said he was talking about three flagship models. He then said that the third Premium model will probably be the Porsche Edition or the P40 pro-Max version. He also suggested that the base model’s camera design might be more like P30. And that the new rectangular camera design seen in the renders would only be specific to the third model.
Recently an image of what is said to be a part of the P40 camera taken on the production line reveals that the flagship of the series is hardware-ready for spring.
The three cameras in the image are visible in three circular cuts. None of them will be a telephoto periscope camera because they have a rectangular aperture. This feature seems to have been dropped for the Pro version, as was the case with P30 and P30 Pro.
If the revealer is right, the Huawei P40 Pro Max or Porsche version, according to the renders, will have a five-way camera on the back and a dual-camera on the front. The five rear cameras are expected to be mounted in a rectangular module in the upper left corner of the rear panel. On the front panel, the handset will probably have a slotted-screen display and a tabletop cutout for two selfie cameras.
No information is available on the flagship phone, but the revealer said there will be three flagship versions this time around. He did not explicitly say that the P40 lite would no longer exist. As the date of introduction approaches, more information about the number of P40 Series phones should be released.
