Huawei is all set to launch its next flagship smartphone soon. The Huawei P40 and P40 Pro will reportedly be launched at an event in Paris in March 2020. The design renders of the Huawei P40 series recently surfaced online. Now, popular analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has shed some light on what we can expect from the upcoming Huawei P40 Pro phone.
Kuo said the Huawei P40 Pro will offer a redesigned periscope telephoto lens, and it will be the world’s first phone with 10x optical zoom. The P40 Pro could feature a new 8-megapixel periscope zoom lens with an f/4.0 aperture, Huawei Central reports. The smartphone’s periscope module could support two mirrors as well as an extended field of view to achieve the higher 10x optical zoom capability.
