New leaks on Twitter suggest that Huawei is working on a new smartphone which will pack a triple-lens 40MP Leica-branded camera. Several ads for a “Huawei PCE Series” phone were spotted online by mobile tipster Evan Blass.
Is the next Huawei P-series going to be an imaging powerhouse? A digital artist at one of the company’s creative agencies added these “PCE Series” ads to their portfolio — claiming 40MP, 3 lens rear (5x hybrid zoom) + 24MP selfie, all Leica-co-developed. pic.twitter.com/t8w3VlL55L

Apparently, the source of the ads is a creative agency that works with Huawei. However, the ads have not been officially published and the agency already removed them from its portfolio.
The leaked advertisements reveal the specifications of what might be one of the most impressive and power packed smartphone cameras. The upcoming smartphone, according to the ad will have a triple lens rear-facing 40MP camera, 5X hybrid zooming (which uses a digital and optical zoom for better capturing far away objects) and a 24MP front-facing camera. The camera will also be co-engineered by Leica, the same company that co-engineered the cameras for the Huawei P10 and Huawei Mate 10.
Blass claims that the phone in question here is the follow up to the Huawei P10, tentatively named Huawei P11. 2016 is the year that saw a rise in dual-camera setups on smartphones, and 2018 might see the first ever smartphone with a triple-lens if the leaks are true for the Huawei P11.
