On February 21, 2020, the Chinese National Intellectual Property Authority (CNIPA) approved and released a new Huawei phone patent that was found by Twitter user TheTechGuy.
It looks like we will see Huawei’s upcoming Mate series smartphone, Huawei Mate 40 like this. A Huawei patent now shows a smartphone with 8 cameras, On the front, we see a “dual punch hole” on the top left corner for the double selfie camera.
On the back, according to the image/render/patent, there is a Hexa camera with 6 lenses that can be seen there. The design of the camera is similar to the upcoming Huawei P40 series. 2 × 3 lenses and an LED flash can be seen there.
It’s still a guess, of course, but the design could well be used in the upcoming Huawei Mate 40 series.
