The Huawei P40 Pro is set to be launched soon. For the first time, we finally have a good idea of what the phone will look like. Notable takeaways include a penta-camera setup, curved edges with incredibly slim bezels, and a number of design choices which Samsung fans will find familiar.

Huawei has confirmed that the P40 Pro will be launched in March next year. That's less than three months away at this point, so it's no surprise that more and more leaks about the phone are starting to surface. The latest of the lot gives us our first clear look at the phone.

The renders were shared by popular leakster Ice Universe who's typically reliable on matters like this. Going by the images, the P40 Pro will feature a penta-camera setup The P20 Pro had three, the P30 Pro had four, and it stands to reason that the P40 Pro goes one step further.

The rear camera module is rectangular. Pretty similar to what we've seen on Galaxy S11 leaks so far, in fact. Three lenses are lined on the left, with the bottom one being a periscope lens. The P40 Pro will supposedly feature a redesigned periscope setup that will grant it 10x optical zoom superpowers. On the right is an LED flash, what appears to be a TOF sensor, and one more camera. We expect the last sensor to be a macro shooter.

The front of the P40 Pro plays host to a dual punch-hole. Or a pill, as it's called. It's a lot like the one on the Galaxy S10+, albeit smaller and on the other side of the display. The phone's edges are curved, but that's no surprise at this point
