Huawei P40 Pro, P40 Pro+ unveiled
- The Huawei P40 Pro and P40 Pro+ have been officially revealed as the Chinese company’s 2020 flagship smartphone offerings. Both smartphones are mostly the same and differ mainly in the rear camera department.
- The P40 Pro uses an ‘Overflow Curved’ display which is curved from all 4 sides. The 6.58-inch OLED panel has a 90 Hz refresh rate with a resolution of 1,200 x 2,640 px. There’s also a rather large pill-shaped hole punch on the upper left which houses an IR scanner for face unlock, proximity sensor, and the 32MP selfie camera.
- Powered by a Kirin 990 5G SoC, the phone comes with 8GB of RAM and 256GB/ 512GB of internal storage. The battery capacity here is 4,200mAh with 27W wireless and 40W wired fast charging support. The P40 Pro+ scales up the wireless charging speed to an industry-leading 40W.
- The standard Huawei P40 Pro has a 50MP RYYB primary sensor with a massive size of 1/1.28″. It is joined by a 5x periscope zoom camera, 40MP ultra-wide ‘Cine Lens’ camera and a 3D Time of Flight sensor.
- The P40 Pro+ has 5 cameras at the back. The primary, ultra-wide and ToF cameras remain the same, however, the 5x telephoto camera is replaced by two different 8MP zoom units – a 240 mm periscope camera with 10x optical zoom (industry-leading), and another 3x optical zoom camera for portraits and zoom consistency.
- Huawei’s new AppGallery is standard on the P40 series which is supposed to be a replacement for Google apps. Also, there’s a new AI voice assistant called Celia.
- The European rates for the Huawei P40 Pro and P40 Pro+ are EUR999 and EUR1,399, respectively. India launch of these phones remains uncertain as of now.
