The Huawei Mate 40 Pro is reported to have just one front-facing camera, but it is supposedly equipped with a 3D sensor that would mean the device could support face and gesture recognition.

Now, for cameras, leaks so far say the Mate 40 Pro has a triple-camera, but Penta-lens on the Pro+, and Porsche design RS.

According to the German tech website, the upcoming handset will feature a 6.76-inch 2772×1344 pixels OLED display, Huawei HiSilicon Kirin 9000 processor (Snapdragon 865 equivalent), integrated 5G modem, 8GB of RAM and 256GB storage (with microSD support). While there are no early indications as to when and if the Mate 40 series will arrive in global markets, the new flagships are expected to be available in China later this month. Other variants may include up to 12GB of RAM.

The device will include a new camera system that combines laser and optical autofocus.

As the image above shows, the PORSCHE DESIGN Huawei Mate 40 RS has a massive octagonal camera module that houses all of the sensors & the LED flash. Both photos of the smartphone box are already on the internet.

The bottom line is that if you right-click any Office PWAs that ended up in your Start menu, you can safely unpin them. Running Word in a browser and running it as a PWA is pretty much the same thing, with a few minor, yet key differences.

Just as expected, the Huawei Mate 40 Pro will feature Leica-made sensors, including a 50MP (f/1.9) camera in the back. These are mentioned to be a 50-megapixel main sensor with f/1.9 aperture and OIS, a 20-megapixel ultra-wide-angle sensor with f/1.8 aperture, and a 12-megapixel telephoto sensor with f/3.4 aperture. All the user has to do is move his hand over the display to interact with the phone. The same source reports that at least the European version of Huawei Mate 40 Pro, is packed with a 4,400mAh battery that supports an improved SuperCharge feature allowing for a 65-watt fast charging.

This should allow the smartphone to be charged extremely quickly so that it is fully operational again within less than an hour.

With each passing day, we are moving a step closer to Huawei's Mate 40 series launch event. Offering mobile products without Google services, especially outside of China, is viewed as a big deal breaker. However, seeing new leaks of the Huawei Mate 40 Pro Plus model changes this situation to some extent. Other necessary options embody Bluetooth 5.2, WiFi 6, and NFC help.

Most of this information comes from WinFuture, so that's where we'll start.
