The Huawei P40 series is just a few days away from its official launch, but today we may have been given a glimpse into the P40 Pro’s rear camera array.

While it’s been reported that the Pro could have up to seven cameras, a new leak by Slashleaks contributor @RODENT950 revealed.

For starters, Huawei’s employing Sony to craft the camera sensors. The primary camera will use a 52MP RYYB sensor, while the ultra-wide camera will use a 40MP RGGB sensor.

The prism zoom system will make its return, according to the leak with 10x reach now.

A time of flight sensor, colour temperature sensor and LED flash joins a microphone at the rear too. It’s not clear if the phone will feature some type of audio zoom witchcraft like the Samsung Galaxy S20 series.

Huawei’s yet to shed any light on the phone series, bar launching the P40 Lite in Spain and the Y7p in South Africa last week, which is a rebranded P40 Lite E in Europe.

The phone are expected to be unveiled on 26 March 2020.
