Huawei is nearing a release of its next generation of flagship P series of smartphones in March. Ahead of that, we have already had a look at the upcoming Huawei P40 and P40 Pro 3D CAD renders, courtesy of prolific leaker Steve Hemmerstoffer aka @OnLeaks. And now, about a month later, the very first press renders of Huawei P40 Pro surface on the internet(via Evan Blass aka @evleaks) revealing the entire design of the phone.
The newly leaked Huawei P40 Pro press renders reveal the complete design of the phone. According to it, the P40 Pro will come fitted with a dual punch hole or pill-shaped cutout for front cameras akin to the Galaxy S10+ and the recently launched Redmi K30 series as well as Realme X50. This placeholder for dual selfie camera will be located on the top left corner of the phone’s display. The back of the phone, on the other hand, will feature a Leica-branded penta camera setup. The three cameras, one of which is a periscope zoom unit, will be placed vertically on a rectangular bump adjacent to two other cameras along with an LED flash. This bump clearly resembles the one found on the newly announced Galaxy S10 Lite, Galaxy Note 10 Lite, and the upcoming Galaxy S20 series.
Talking about other sides of the Huawei P40 Pro, the right side of the device will feature volume rockers and a power key below it, whereas the bottom of the phone will house a USB Type-C port and a speaker grille. However, the top of the device will be empty and thus it will not come with a headphone jack. Also, since there’s no sign of a physical fingerprint sensor, we can expect it feature an in-screen scanner. Additionally, according to @evleaks, the P40 Pro might also come in a ceramic back finish inspired by Galaxy S10+ from last year.
Having said that, Huawei is yet to announce the launch date for its P40 series, which usually takes place in March annually and the company’s CEO Richard Yu also confirmed the same in December. Anyways, as per Evan, the launch event could take place on March 26.
