But what will be the news? Combining rumors and more founded hypotheses, here are what the changes should be. On board of Huawei P40 we should find one triple camera, equipped with primary sensor, telephoto and wide angle. According to the indications of the leaker Teme, the configuration on P40 would include a primary from 52 MP with 1 / 1.3 ″ sensor, a wide-angle lens Cine Camera from 40 MP with 1 / 1.5 ″ sensor and a 3X telephoto lens. The new 52 MP sensor would improve in shots n night phase. This is thanks to the use of the Pixel Binning 4-in-1 which would allow you to get yes photos in 13 MP, but with pixels from 2.24 μm.

As for the selfie camera, there is talk of using two sensors from 32 + 2 MP, with the second that it would also be a ToF sensor to improve bokeh.

But the rumors focused mainly on the photographic module that we would find on Huawei P40 Pro, the real top of the range 2019. Here we will have one quad camera, with a sensor more than the standard model and also a sensor ToF. As visible in the render, on the Pro there would be the so-called periscope telephoto lens, capable of increasing the focal length with one 5x optical zoom. The other sensors, i.e. primary and wide angle, would be the same as the basic P40.

The real surprises will be on Huawei P40 Pro PE

We also discover that there will be Huawei P40 Pro PE, also called provisionally Premium Edition. Besides having one ceramic shell, this model will have even more advanced features. The configuration with penta room will see the shift of the LED flash at the bottom, in order to make room for the additional sensor. We are not specified what the latter will be used for, but what transpires is that we will find the new system of 10x optical zoom. This thanks to new sensor Sony IMX520 adopted by the company, with a double prism which will allow this focal length doubled.

Among other things, on P40 Pro (perhaps only PE) we will have a brand new 52 MP Sony sensor signed as Quad Quad Bayer. Pixel Binning's technology, as well as in 4-in-1, will be pushed well 16-in-1, allowing "solo" photos 3.25 MP. This is to get even more impressive photos and videos at night, with pixels from 8.96 μm.

Upgrade 20 / 01

As the leaker's latest post on Weibo indicates Digital Chat Station, on Huawei P40 Pro we should see the new sensor used for the first time Sony IMX708. Together with this leak we do not find attached any specifications regarding mega-pixels, focal aperture or whatever. The RYYB matrix introduced on the previous top of the range should be maintained and we could be talking about the aforementioned Quad Quad Bayer sensor.

Upgrade 14 / 02

The Huawei Club Twitter account throws other details on the photographic sector of the P40 series there. The primary would again be confirmed to be unpublished Sony IMX700, a sensor from 52 MP with dimensions of 1 / 1.33 ". It also confirms the absurd capacity of Pixel Binning 16-in-1, with photos from ben pixels 4.48 um. For a comparison, the new sensor of S20 Ultra gets pixels from 2.4 um via Pixel Binning. The 40 MP wide angle, the ToF sensor and the 10x optical telephoto lens are also mentioned.

Upgrade 08 / 03

As he reports Teme in one of the last tweets, we give some numbers. The two main sensors for the Huawei P40 series will be the Sony IMX700 da 52 MP with matrix Hexadeca Bayer RYYB and dimensions of 1 / 1.28 ″ and 1.22 μm. The other is the wide angle Sony IMX608 da 40 MP with 1 / 1.7 ″ and 1.0 μm Ultra Wide Cine RGGB technology. The photo app would cause the user to shoot by default in Quad Bayer mode at 13 MP with the primary one and 10 MP with the wide angle.

The tweet then talks about two telephoto sensors, starting with a telephoto lens with 3x optical zoom, then moving on to the periscope one with 10x optical zoom of the Pro. The latter would have the aforementioned double prism with lenses 2P1G, a combination of plastic and glass. A configuration similar to that of Xiaomi Mi Note 10, with the first telephoto lens that would be used to compensate for the gap from 1x to 10x.

The rest of the sector would consist of a ToF sensor, LED flash and a sensor for the measurement of the color temperature. There is also mention of a microphone, perhaps for the possibility of having audio zoom mode during video.
