Huawei launched the Huawei P40, P40 Pro and P40 Pro Plus through an online launch event. With the new P-series, the company is further raising the bar for mobile photography. He is being dubbed into the mobile form factor as a “visionary photography” experience.
All three models resemble a bullet-shaped punch hole display from the front. The Huawei P40 has a 6.1-inch flat OLED display, while the P40 Pro and P40 Pro + have a larger 6.58-curved OLED display. They support 90 Hz, which may come as a surprise when the industry moves towards the 120 Hz panel. Huawei Consumer Business Group CEO Richard Yu says this is the best balance the company can hit with its devices.
In terms of design, all three devices bring the design elements seen with the P30 and Mate 30 series. It has a quad-curve overflow display with thin bezels around it. The back has a rectangular camera setup that Huawei adds to the “Art of Balanced Rhythm” design. Huawei P40 has a 3800mAh battery, P40 Pro has a 4,200mAh battery and P40 Pro + has a 4200mAh battery.
All three models feature a 32-megapixel main camera paired with an IR depth / gesture camera and an ambient / proximity sensor. This will allow for face unlock, smart gestures and AI private view. The only difference is that the P40 gets a fixed focus camera while the other two models get autofocus. The real deal, of course, is the rear camera setup called the Leica Ultra Vision Camera. Huawei P40 has triple while P40 Pro has quad rear cameras. The P40 Pro + takes it a step further with the Penta camera setup.
Huawei P40, P40 Pro and P40 Pro + have a 50-megapixel main camera with f / 1.9 aperture. They use a larger 1 / 1.28-inch sensor, which is larger than the 1 / 1.33-inch sensor seen on the Galaxy S20 Ultra. He is also the first person in the world to feature full pixel Octa PD autofocus. Huawei has also upgraded 8 color channels for better color precision. There is also optical image stabilization with this main sensor. On the Huawei P40, the main camera is paired with a 16-megapixel ultra wide and 8-megapixel telephoto camera.
Huawei P40 Pro and P40 Pro + have a 40-megapixel ultra wide cine sensor with f / 1.8 aperture. They also have a 3D tuff sensor for depth sensing. The Huawei P40 Pro features a 12-megapixel telephoto camera for 5x optical zoom. The P40 Pro + has two telephoto cameras for 10x optical zoom. The first is an 8-megapixel standard lens while the second is an 8-megapixel periscope lens for a focal length equal to 240-megapixels. Huawei says that the P40 is capable of 204800 ISO while the P40 Pro and P40 Pro + are capable of 409600 ISO.
The Huawei P40 Series is powered by the Kirin 990 5G SoC, the most powerful chipset ever made by the company. The P40 and P40 Pro support 27W fast wireless charging while the P40 Pro + gets 40W fast wireless charging. They also run EMUI 10.1 with multi-window support. There is no support for Google mobile services, but Huawei is offering “Hey Celia” as an alternative to Google Assistant.
