Move away, Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra; the top dog is here. Huawei is touted to launch three new flagships this month: the P40, P40 Pro, and P40 Pro Premium. Details of the Huawei P40 Pro Premium have now surfaced, painting the image of a phone with some of the most impressive hardware the world has ever seen.

Come March 26, Huawei will launch its latest flagship phones, the Huawei P40 and P40 Pro. The two phones are touted to be joined by an even more sophisticated device, the P40 Pro Premium. Purported details of the phone have now surfaced.

According to the source report, the Huawei P40 Pro Premium will sport a 6.7-inch display. Huawei will take no prisoners with the display, as it's said to be a 120 Hz QHD+ panel. If previous Huawei flagships are any indication, it will be an AMOLED display, likely made by BOE or Samsung. The display will sport a pill-shaped hole punch, housing a 32 MP selfie camera and a 3D ToF sensor.

At the back of the P40 Pro Premium is expected to be a penta-camera system. The source claims it'll be a 52 MP main shooter, a 40 MP sensor, an 8 MP ultra-wide-angle lens, a 3D ToF sensor, and a periscope lens. We don't believe that to be exactly accurate, however. It's a lot more likely that the 40 MP sensor will be the ultra-wide-angle shooter as seen on the Mate 30 Pro.

The 52 MP sensor is reportedly the IMX700, the direct successor to the IMX600 Huawei favored for years. It's said to be a 1/1.3" sensor that bins at up to 16-to-1 in extreme low-light conditions. That sensor is likely to be a lot more powerful than the ISOCELL Bright HM1 on the Galaxy S20 Ultra.

According to other reports, the Huawei P40 Pro Premium will actually feature two telephoto lenses; likely an 8 MP 3x zoom lens, and a 10x optical zoom periscope lens.

The P40 Pro Premium will be powered by the Kirin 990 5G and will feature a 5500 mAh battery with 50 W fast-charging and 27 W fast wireless charging.
