RYYB sensor on Huawei P30 Pro

Huawei relased the P30 Pro. It has a "Sony-made 40MP Quad Bayer sensor with an RYYB filter" according to this site . Huawei claims that the RYYB sensor collects 40% more light.

Why does a RYYB sensor collects more light than a RGGB sensor? Is that even true?

Are we going to see RYYB sensor in new cameras?

How is it possible to generate an image with red, yellow and green? Those are not primary colors actually. With RGB you can get yellow if you mix green and blue, but with RYB, how do you mix the color green?
