Rumors about the Huawei P40 Pro, the Chinese giant's smartphone coming to market with the Samsung Galaxy S11 next year, have intensified in recent days. After the recent leak about the possible design of the device, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo now reveals that the device may have an 8MP periscopic format camera, 10x optical zoom and f / 4.0 aperture.
According to the leaker, this will be possible thanks to the use of two mirrors that would equip the lens and an extended field of view. Just for comparison, the P30, Huawei's only smartphone that has a periscope camera, has only one mirror.
Patent registration may indicate future handset similar to Asus competitor
According to the analyst, it is possible that other devices from the Chinese giant, such as the P40, and intermediaries from the Nova, Honor and Mate families, reach consumers with a 5X optical periscope lens.
Ming-Chi Kuo also revealed that Huawei had ordered a first shipment of approximately 9 million 10X periscope lens units, and another 28 million 5X periscope lens units. Taken together, the two purchases far exceed the company's total order for 2019 – about 9 million units.
Finally, an analyst said the Huawei P40 in its standard version will be priced at between 4,000 and 5,000 yuan – somewhere between R $ 2340 and R $ 2930 in direct conversion to our currency without tax.
New models will have "never before seen design"
As we have already reported, P40 series devices can come with a "design never seen before". According to renderings released on the internet, at least the Pro version will have four curved edges on the screen.
Other specifications in the series have also been cited as 6.1 "or 6.2" flat panel for the normal model, and 6.5 inches or 6.7 inches for the Pro model.
