According to a design patent submitted by Huawei to the German Patent Office (DPMA), a new smart machine similar to the Mate 30 Pro is used in a combination of camera sensors for the first three and five. Although the Mate 40 Pro is not scheduled to be released until Q4 2020, the new patent has given us a preview of its form-shaped design. Of course, the configuration of the rear five-camera is nothing new.

Since there has been no official confirmation and the name of the Mate 40 Pro is not explicitly mentioned in the document, the new patent could also be a branch model in the series, or a more advanced limited edition.
As for the idea of a rear pentator, smart machine makers have been trying to plug in more sensors and pixels. Xiaomi, for example, has a telephoto, depth of field, ultra-wide angle, macro, and 108-megapixel master on the Note 10 and Note 10 Pro.
Earlier, HMD Global was equipped with five 12MP sensors on the Nokia 9 PureView — two for color capture and three for black-and-white imaging.
Five cameras can treat the same shooting scene with different exposure parameters, and the composited photos can bring much more detail than a single camera. For this reason, we are also curious about the sensor combination of The Huawei Mate 40 Pro.
Previously, the company was rated by DxOMark as the best camera phone on the market by DxOMark, equipped with a 40MP SuperSensing master, 40MP ultra-wide-angle Cine lens, 8MP telephoto, and deep-sensing-enabled 3D ToF sensor.
