A P40 with five rear cameras is actually in the pipeline
Are you disappointed when recent reports said that the P40 Pro is only getting a quad-rear camera setup? According to Evleaks, Huawei is planning to have three P40 variants just like what Apple did with the iPhone 11 series and what Samsung intends to do for the upcoming Galaxy S20 series.
Aside from the P40 and P40 Pro, there will be a P40 Pro Premium, and that particular variant will be the one sporting five rear cameras. Like the P40 Pro, it will have a periscope telephoto camera capable of 10x optical zoom and a custom 52-megapixel Sony main camera. The other three cameras are an ultra-wide-angle camera and possibly a ToF sensor and a dedicated macro camera.
Aside from having more cameras than the P40 Pro, the P40 Pro Premium will reportedly have a ceramic build, hence the premium moniker. Will it be Huawei’s answer to Samsung’s Galaxy S20 Ultra? We will know come March.
