Huawei will hold a hardware showcase online at 1pm GMT tomorrow, where the Chinese firm will unveil the feverishly anticipated successor to P30 Pro – the P40 Pro. The new device is all but confirmed to come with a quad-curved display and an upgraded camera that could leave the P30 Pro in its dust.
The north star of Huawei’s P-series has always been its camera and it seems the P40 Pro won’t be any different. The handset is expected to come with a huge rectangular camera module on its rear housing at least four sensors.
In a behind-closed-doors briefing with Huawei earlier this month, the company confirmed to Express.co.uk the device will tote “market leading sensor technology” and “advanced periscope camera technology”. But what does all this marketing jargon mean? Well, it seems the P40 Pro will come with upgraded camera sensors and could extend its optical magnification to 10x, potentially doubling the 5x optical zoom offered by the P30 Pro.
In addition to toting first-class camera specs, the P40 Pro is also anticipated to be treated to upgraded image processing thanks to Huawei’s in-house Kirin 990 chipset that’s extremely likely to be housed under its bonnet.
