No periscope lens for the Huawei P40, according to a new leak
Some recent Huawei P40-related rumors may have some tech fans looking forward to the appearance of rectangular lenses for state-of-the-art telephoto capabilities on the rear panels of these phones. However, should a new leak pan out, they will be found on the P30 Pro's successor only.
This possibility has been broached by a Weibo user called Ark clicks, who has posted a picture of smartphone camera modules on a rack that might be located in a production facility. It appears alongside a caption that translates to "Guess how many cameras does the Huawei P40 Standard Edition have?".
Therefore, it now appears that the non-Pro P40 variant has no more than 3 rear cameras. There are smaller cut-outs alongside them in the rectangular housings; however, they are very reminiscent of those for the flash and laser emitters from the P30 series.
Furthermore, it appears that this 2020 flagship line is also getting a Lite model. This is in accordance with a 2nd new tip that shows a screen protector. Accordingly, should it prove to be real, this budget P40-series phone is destined for a single punch-hole camera and a small chin.
