The first image, said to be from the standard Huawei Mate 40, shows three normal-looking sensors (likely an update to the Mate 30’s main, wide-angle, and telephoto camera) versus a fourth obscured sensor.
And now your very first look at the #HuaweiMate40Pro! 360* video + gorgeous 5K renders, on behalf of my Friends over @Pricebaba!-> https://t.co/zi0yQLCduv pic.twitter.com/uKVWMYa9ZhAugust 3, 2020
The image below, which is supposedly the Huawei Mate 40 Pro, has the same three regular sensors, along with a square periscope sensor to round it all off.
As for the other differences, it seems that the standard Mate 40 has a flat display, while the Mate 40 Pro has curved glass on either side of the screen. This differs from the ‘quad-curve overflow display’ dta seen on the Huawei P40 Pro earlier in the year, which also featured curved glass on the top and bottom of its screen.
Both phones seem to feature a pill-shaped punch hole that houses their selfie cameras. Based on the looks alone, it seems as if Huawei has taken over the front cameras from the P40 Pro, combining a regular selfie camera with a ToF 3D sensor.
As always, all of the above information (including the leaked renders) should be taken with a grain of salt until Huawei itself comes out with information. The latter is expected to happen sometime in October.
