Huawei P40 Pro, P40: Expected specs and features
Ahead of the phone's launch, two of the three phones have had their entire spec sheets leaked by the tipster, Ishan Agarwal.

The set-up will make use of the Huawei XD Fusion Engine for pictures to enhance its performance. Additionally, one of the lenses will also support up to 30x zoom.
Interestingly, the tipster claims the phone will bring a single 32-megapixel camera at the front. However, the render shared by him on Twitter shows a dual punch-hole on the display. Apart from this, the phone is expected to come with a 3,800 mAh battery, and also house a Kirin 990 chipset with 5G support.

The camera setup on the Pro variant will be a Leica Ultra Vision Quad Cam and will comprise of a 50-megapixel primary lens, a 40-megapixel secondary lens, a 12-megapixel, and a fourth ToF sensor.
