Chinese smartphone manufacturer Huawei’s upcoming ‘P40’ series smartphones are expected to launch in March this year and now a recent leak has hinted that the upcoming series may have three flagship variants.

According to a Twitter leaker “Teme”, who is known for his Huawei-related leaks, has recently claimed that one of these models could be a Porsche or a Max edition device.

In another tweet, he said the camera design could “still be more like a P30 pro, while the design of the camera in the third edition may feature a rectangular camera design”.

Richard Yu, the head of Huawei’s consumer business recently revealed P40 series smartphones to run its own HarmonyOS operating system instead of Google’s Android.

In addition, Yu also revealed that Huawei has been considering selling its Kirin processors to other companies in industries such as the Internet of Things (IoT) and robotics.
