The next Huawei phone might pack a triple-lens 40MP camera

Till now, the Huawei and Leica partnership is only limited to dual rear cameras, but with the Huawei P11 and P11 Plus, the Leica will also work on the front-facing camera.

Firstly, the name is shown as the Huawei PCE series which could be a new naming convention for its mainstream flagship or perhaps it's a new photography-centric series like ASUS ZenFone Zoom. In the tweet included below, it seemed clear that the next device in the Huawei P series could feature a triple-lens, 40 MP rear camera setup with 5x hybrid zoom, as well as a 24 MP front camera. There were four different images added to their online portfolio which advertises devices in the Huawei PCE Series.

Adding fuel to the fire, Blass says the images have now been removed from the source, which is generally an indication that the information is legit. If the latest leak is to be believed, Huawei is on the verge of a breakthrough in bringing insane camera specifications to smartphones. Leica will be co-developing the sensors as per usual. The lenses may not be the only trick that Huawei has up their sleeves, however, as the company has been targeting AI-based improvements for its cameras. The handset is tipped to feature an AI-powered imaging engine, capable of capturing "100% more light" in poorly-lit environments and processing images on a per-scene basis.

Huawei has launched so many high-end flagship devices and recently has launched Honor V10 in an event in Beijing. It is true that Huawei has yet to offer something unique that will drive sales in a Western market, but will this trio of cameras actually be enough?

Currently, the Pixel 2 tops the DxOMark rank for the best mobile camera on the market.
