This is how the display of the Huawei P40 Pro should look, with it curving into its frame on all four sides. The photo in question has been making the rounds for some time now, but a reliable Huawei leaker has now been able to confirm the quad-curve design. The P40 Pro has a rather thick, pill-shaped, punch hole for its dual selfie cameras, though.

Huawei has already confirmed that it will be launching the P40 and P40 Pro on March 26 in Paris, but without revealing any concrete details about the two devices. The P40 and P40 Pro are unlikely to resemble the P40 Lite though, which is essentially a rebranded Nova 6SE.

Rumours about Huawei including a quad-curve display in its next flagships have been rumbling for a while now, not least because of renders published by the likes of 91Mobiles and Evan Blass. A photo supposedly showing a hands-on image of the P40 Pro has been circulating online too, although without any evidence that it was real. Now, @RODENT950, a Twitter account renowned for its Huawei leaks, claims to have received confirmation that the photo is of a P40 Pro.

While this could still turn out to be fake, we doubt that @RODENT950 would be willing to stake their reputation on something unless they had been informed by a reliable source. Hence, we have no reason to believe that this is anything but the genuine article.

The talking points about the P40 Pro's display will not end at its curvature. As the photo below shows, Huawei has included a large cut-out for two front-facing cameras. While we have seen this on other devices like the Galaxy S10 Plus, the one in the P40 Pro appears to be significantly larger than what we have seen previously. @RODENT950 claims that the same applies to the regular P40, too.
