In early January a Huawei P40 Professional leak steered the upcoming smartphone may have a flat display screen, not like its predecessor, and precisely per week after that information broke, we’re bringing you information of one other leak that claims… utterly the other.
This comes from Twitter person @RODENT950, a contributor to tech leaks web site Slashleaks who has a reasonably good (though not precisely prolonged) observe document.
They posted a sequence of pictures of what appears to be a Huawei P40 Professional display screen protector, which reveals what we have been hoping all alongside – the cellphone might include a curved display screen.

The photographs of the display screen protector, intriguingly, do not present a notch for the front-facing digicam, which has lead many to imagine that the cellphone may have a ‘punch-hole’ cut-out section on the prime of the show for the digicam as an alternative.
The display screen protector images present that the curve is extra angular than on the Huawei P30 Professional. So it appears Huawei is copying its Mate 30 Professional to a level, as this had a steep ‘waterfall’ curved display screen on the sides.
One thing that these display screen protector pictures do not present, nonetheless, is a display screen that curves on the prime and backside of the system, as we have heard the Huawei P40 Professional may have. For some context, whereas some telephones have shows that curve on the sides, none have screens which might be angled on the prime and backside, so this could be a primary.
That would recommend the display screen does not have curves on the prime and backside in spite of everything, or that the display screen protector does not cowl these areas, or just that the display screen protector is not correct to the cellphone.
Digital camera conundrum
One different factor steered by @RODENT950 is that the primary digicam on the Huawei P40 Professional shall be a 52MP snapper, one which makes use of Four-in-1 pixel know-how to take 13MP photos (though presumably with a 52MP output possibility too).
and right here we go once more🤨52mp 1/1.three” 2.24μm (13mp out)January 14, 2020
That contradicts earlier rumors we would heard that steered the system may have a 64MP essential digicam, and there are causes that each may very well be believable.
In protection of the 64MP principle, we already know Sony has a 64MP sensor that is been in a number of telephones now, from numerous firms. It will be very straightforward for Huawei to make use of this Sony sensor in its cellphone, as most Huawei cameras mix Leica lenses with Sony sensors (which is a few beautiful alliteration).
The 52MP sensor is believable although, as within the P30 sequence the corporate shied away from a top-MP sensor, with a 40MP snapper as an alternative of 48MP, which was the top-end possibility on the time. As a substitute, it used SuperSpectrum sensing which ‘noticed’ RYYB as an alternative of the RGB of most sensors, which made photos appear brighter and extra vibrant.
We might see Huawei do the identical within the P40 sequence, with a cellphone that packs a lower-res essential digicam so it might probably facilitate the return of SuperSpectrum.
After all, that is all primarily based on rumors and hypothesis which might change into completely off base. We’re anticipating the Huawei P40 sequence of telephones to be proven off in March 2020, however keep tuned to TechRadar earlier than then for all the newest leaks and information.
