The triple-camera Huawei P20 Pro will feature a 40-megapixel main sensor

Still short of the 41-megapixel Nokia PureView, though

Details continue to trickle out about Huawei’s upcoming P20 flagships, and the latest is about the rumored three-camera system for the top-of-the-line P20 Pro. It’s more or less been confirmed that the P20 Pro will have three rear-facing cameras, but now we know — via WinFuture — what kind of lenses to expect: an 8-megapixel telephoto, a 20-megapixel black-and-white lens, and a main RGB lens that clocks in a massive 40 megapixels.

For those keeping score at home, that’s one of the highest megapixel counts ever on a mobile phone, topped only be the legendary 41-megapixel Nokia PureView camera from the Nokia 808 and Lumia 1020.

WinFuture’s leak contains basically anything else you’d want to know about the P20 Pro, too, although most of those specs had already leaked out already. All that’s left at this point is for Huawei to actually announce the phones, which it plans to do on March 27th.
