The patent focuses on an innovative user interface for the camera, which includes the transfer of on-screen control buttons to the side of the screen. There are buttons for zoom, flash, white balance settings, HDR, filters and so on. The extreme icon indicates the shutter button.
In the Huawei P40 line, the front camera embedded in the screen was located in the upper left corner in the oval hole. In this case, the new smartphone will also receive a dual selfie camera, which is located in the central upper part of the screen.
The back panel raises questions, since there is not a single module of the main camera on it. The most daring assumption indicates that Huawei may work on a smartphone with endangered cameras. Recall, a similar smartphone at the beginning of the year showed OnePlus .
However, it is more likely that this patent is dedicated specifically to the camera’s user interface, so they simply decided not to waste time on the rear panel.
According to another source, smartphones Huawei Mate 40 will receive displays with a refresh rate of 120 Hz.
It is reported that the devices will receive a high-quality display with a refresh rate of 120 Hz. Obviously, a panel with a resolution of at least Full HD + will be applied.
Earlier it was said that the branded processor Kirin 1000 with support for fifth-generation mobile networks (5G) will form the basis of the devices.
The announcement of new products is expected in the second half of this year. Most likely, the devices will debut in the fall.
