(Pocket Ribbon) – Huawei's second flagship smartphone series is expected before the year comes out in the Mate 40 and Mate 40 Pro and while there were few leaks, some renderings have now popped up online giving us an indication of what they would look like can see.
The renderings are the result of two collaborations between OnLeaks and HandsetExpert for the Mate 40 and OnLeaks and Pricebaba for the Mate 40 Pro and they both show a great focus on the rear camera – even more so than their predecessors, the Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro.

Based on the images, the Huawei Mate 40 will have three rear camera sensors in a prominent circular camera housing, while the Mate 40 Pro will have three camera sensors and a rear periscope sensor, also in a centralized circular housing.
On the front, the Mate 40 appears to have curved edges and a selfie camera with two holes in the top left corner, just like the Huawei P40 Pro. The Mate 40 Pro, meanwhile, seems to have the waterfall display of the Mate 30 Pro again, but switches the notch for a punch-hole camera.
The Mate 40 is claimed to have a 6.4-inch display and measure 158.6 x 72.5 x 8.9mm, or 10.4mm with the camera bump. Rumor has it that the Mate 40 Pro has a 6.7-inch screen and measures 162.8 x 75.5 x 9mm or 10.4mm with the camera bump.

Previous reports have suggested that the Mate 40 Pro could be the first device to have a camera below the display – which would drive out these latest renderings. There is also a rumor of a freeform lens on the Mate 40 Pro.
No hardware specifications were revealed, but we would expect a Kirin chipset and EMUI software on top of Android without Google services.
Huawei announced the Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro in September last year, although the series was previously unveiled in October 2019. There is a rumor that the Chinese company is watching October again for the launch of the Mate 40 and Mate 40 Pro, but we have not heard anything officially yet.
