Huawei P40 Pro may break records with five cameras and a 10x optical zoom!

The Huawei P30 Pro stunned us with its roughly 5x optical zoom periscope camera. Almost a year after it launched, it's still the telephoto camera phone to beat, alongside the Oppo Reno 10X Zoom, with a spot on our best camera phones in 2020 list: but that's set to change when the upcoming Huawei P40 Pro launches in the coming months.

Renders from renowned leaker @evleaks showcase the phone's design, which looks very reminiscent of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S20, with its curved screen and off center, rectangular camera surround. The P40 Pro also differs from Huawei's latest flagship in a few key ways - Huawei appears to have brought back the volume buttons, and while we have no dimensions yet, the P40 Pro looks like a thicker phone to accommodate its periscope zoom.
