Chinese smartphone manufacturer Huawei’s upcoming smartphones P40, P40 Pro are expected to launch in March 2020 and now a recent leak has hinted that the P40 Pro may arrive with total seven cameras, five at the rear and two at the front. The five snappers on its back would feature a main wide-angle lens, a cine lens, a ToF (Time of Flight) sensor, a periscope lens with support for 10x optical zoom and either a telephoto lens with up to 9x optical zoom or an ultrawide lens, GizmoChina reported.
The Huawei P40 Pro is rumoured to arrive with a screen measuring 6.5-inch to 6.7-inch and will sport rectangular camera modules at the back panel.
Richard Yu, the head of Huawei’s consumer business recently hinted that the Huawei P40 series smartphones may run the company’s own HarmonyOS operating system instead of Google’s Android.
He also said that the HarmonyOS is now ready for smartphones but the company is waiting to see if the situation with the US changes.
In addition, Yu also revealed that Huawei has been considering selling its Kirin processors to other companies in industries such as the Internet of Things (IoT) and robotics.
The company recently launched its latest Kirin 990 (5G) flagship chipset with an integrated 5G modem at the IFA 2019.
Kirin 990 (5G) is the first full-frequency 5G SoC to support both non-standalone (NSA) and standalone (SA) architectures as well as TDD/FDD full frequency bands, enabling it to accommodate hardware requirements under diverse networks and networking modes.
