Recently, Huawei announced in a patent document published on September 11, 2020, that the company is planning to launch a newly designed rear penta-camera module smartphone. Unlike the Huawei P40 series previously launched, the Huawei patent shows that the rear camera module of the machine has an umbrella-shaped hexagonal design.

The Huawei patent contains a total of 24 product sketches. The screen on the front of the phone stretches slightly to the sides of the fuselage, possibly using a slightly curved screen. In addition, there is no hole-punch screen is seen on the screen. But it is not clear whether the handset will use a pop-up camera or under-screen camera technology.
At the same time, the patent document also gives different solutions for the placement of the rear module. As we can see, there are three positions for placing the rear camera in the center, upper right corner, and upper left corner. The hexagonal matrix includes five cameras and one LED fill light. The size of the secondary cameras is also different.
In terms of the other details of the patent, there are no buttons on the left side of the machine. Two buttons on the right side – one long and one short. They may be the power button and the volume button, respectively. The bottom carries a USB-C interface and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
Of course, it is still difficult to say whether the design in the patent can finally be implemented as a product. But we hope Huawei will bring something like this and compete with Nokia and its similar models.
