While Huawei should officially lift the veil on its Mate 40 this Thursday, new pictures have appeared and confirm the presence of an octagonal photo module.

Last week, He Gang, an executive at Huawei, posted an image on Weibo. This suggested that the Mate 40 series would swap the circular module of the Mate 30 for an octagonal arrangement of the sensors.

This information seems to be confirmed with new photos posted on Twitter and spotted by GSM Arena. These show more precisely the phone within promotional visuals for a protective shell.

At least 5 photo sensors

The Huawei Mate 40 Pro would have at least 5 sensors. Judging from an image previously shared by Mobile Products Division President Hua Hegang, the device would rely heavily on its optical zoom capabilities. A sixth lens appears to be looming just below the flash. It could be a depth of field sensor for portrait mode.

According to previous reports, the Huawei Mate 40s are the last to ship a Kirin processor, and more particularly the Kirin 9000 with a 5G modem. Smartphones would also be compatible with charging at 66 W.

As efficient as these next two smartphones may be, Huawei is well aware that the embargo currently imposed by the administration of Donald Trump will largely affect sales. Indeed, they will not be delivered with Google services and therefore will not benefit from the Play Store.
