Thanks to Evan Blass's latest P40 Pro renders, we can now see that the back of the device features a penta-cam setup, and it looks like there will also be a 10x periscope lens (the rectangular one). The renders also reveal a ceramic case and rounded display edges. The only issue here is the absence of the audio jack.

Update: It turns out that the renders actually depict the P40 Pro Premium Edition. The P40 Pro will integrate only a quad-cam setup with 5X optical zoom periscope lens on the back, while the penta-cam setup on the P40 Premium Edition will feature a macro cam and the 10X periscope lens in addition. It is still unclear what resolutions each of the sensors will get.

Huawei’s upcoming P40 / Pro flagship series is expected to be officially unveiled this March at the usual Paris event, and the good thing about leaks or rumors is that we do not really have to wait until then to find out what the handhelds look like plus what new technologies they bring. Yesterday, insider sources released some renders of the possible color variants for the P40 models, still the quality was not that great, leaving us speculating about the possible number of cameras on the back. The latest renders coming from trusted industry insider Evan Blass are more detailed and reveal some interesting features for the P40 Pro.

First of all the back of the phone appears to have a ceramic case. The rumored rear quad-cam setup from previous renders is actually a penta-cam now (or possibly a quad-cam + TOF, one camera featuring the new X10 periscope lens), while the front facing selfie cam is getting two sensors. It looks like the audio jack will not make a return, unfortunately, as the only port featured on the lower edge is the USB-C one, which is flanked by the speaker grill and the SIM card slot. Additionally, the right edge features the power and volume buttons.

Rumors have it that the regular P40 will be similar, except it only integrates a triple-cam on the rear, and the 6.2-inch display should be flat, while the one on the Pro version is said to be curved and measuring 6.5 inch in diagonal. More details about the SoC, memory and storage should surface soon, so stay tuned.

I stepped into the wonderous IT&C world when I was around 7. I was instantly fascinated by computerized graphics, be them from games or 3D applications like 3D Max. I like to keep myself up to date with all the new technologies that get released at an ever increasing rate these days. I'm also an avid SciFi reader, an astrophysics aficionado and, as of late, a crypto geek.
