Up to now, Huawei has been placing advanced 3D sensors in the front camera only in the Mate range, such as the Mate 20 Pro or Mate 30 Pro. However, the upcoming Huawei P40 and P40 Pro will also have such sensors, placed in the dual front camera, in hole in the screen.

The information is advanced by Evan Blass, responsible for revealing several “secrets” of the mobile phone industry. In this way, the Huawei P40 and P40 Pro will have a 32 MP sensor, along with a 3D ToF sensor, for safer facial unlocking.


Therefore, the Huawei P40 range (except the P40 Lite) will have a set of unlock sensors on the front camera module, such as the Mate line. In addition to the ToF sensor, we will have a motion, light and proximity sensor so that the equipment can use facial unlocking in all types of situations.

What are ToF cameras?

Time of Flight (ToF) lenses are advanced depth sensors that measure the distance between light and the photo object. In the rear cameras, these lenses allow a better capture of depth shots. In the front cameras, there is the additional advantage of being able to do 3D face mapping.

Huawei P40 and P40 Pro are about to be officially presented

On March 26, Huawei will officially present its new range of mobile phones. The event must be digital and must be broadcast on the brand’s YouTube channel, as they usually do.

Meanwhile the Huawei P40 Lite is now available for pre-order in UK for a price of € 329.99. It remains to be seen at what prices the tops of the range of Huawei’s new bet for 2020 will come.
