- The device will have five cameras in a rear array and two front-facing
- On the back, the sensors will be housed in a large camera bump, leaks reveal
- Huawei’s P40 doesn’t have a release date yet but may be unveiled soon
A forthcoming phone from Chinese tech giant, Huawei may come equipped with a whopping seven cameras according to new leaks.
According to frequent leaker of smart phone intel, Evan Blass, Huawei’s next flagship will take some cues from competitors like Samsung and go all-in on a rear-facing camera array with five optical sensors.
The array, which lives inside a large camera bump on the back of the phone, will have a host of different sensors all with different capabilities, including a telephoto lens, and an ultrawide lens.

According to The Verge, the camera arrays specs should equate to a 13x optical zoom, aided in part by software.
The phone’s last two cameras will be housed in the front of the device. Renderings show them as two hole-punch style selfie cameras centered up top.
Aside from a cutout where those two sensors are housed, the display will essentially be one bezel-less screen.
There are buttons to adjust volume on the side and power the device on and off and no physical headphone hack. It also appears that the phone will use USB-C for charging.
Blass also says that the device will use ceramic in the P40 though it’s not immediately clear what the proportions of glass to ceramic will be.
Also absent in the leaks is an official release date. Previous releases of its flagship phones happened around this time last year if that’s anything to go by.
‘In the image of the rear, the first thing that stands out to us is the camera setup. We can see a total of 4 cameras, a flash, and what looks like a microphone hole’, wrote Max Weinbach who released images of the Samsung Galaxy S20
The leaks follow up a slew of intel about an upcoming Samsung flagship dubbed the Galaxy S20.
According to XDA Developers, the forthcoming Galaxy S20 Plus – the larger version of Samsung’s flagship phones that are slated to be released in February – will definitively have a high-end 120 HZ display which had previously only been rumored.
The 120 HZ display will offer a high refresh rate but will only work with the phone’s standard resolution as opposed to the WQHD – short for quad high – setting that clocks in at 1440p as opposed to 1080p.
