Huawei introduced the P40 Pro smartphone. It is the ultimate phone that targets the most demanding users and is a direct competitor to Apple's most expensive iPhone or Samsung Galaxy S20 flagship.
The successors of last year's P30 series, which has sold nearly 20 million units, have been spoken of virtually since the launch of the Mate 30 Pro last fall. Over time, information about everything came to the surface of the light. There was speculation about what new phones would offer and what would surprise the manufacturer. We are clear about everything after today. The press conference confirmed some unconfirmed information and refuted others.
The best for connoisseurs
As the name suggests, the model P40 Pro with a frameless curved display and a SuperSensing camera, it wants to appeal to demanding customers. The phone is based on a 6.58-inch OLED display with a slight rounding at the sides and a resolution of 2,640 × 1,200 pixels. In the elongated slot in the upper left of the screen is not only a 32Mpx selfie camera, but also a 3D sensor to safely unlock the phone face.
The refresh rate of the touch panel used is either standard 60 Hz or even 90 Hz, which has a positive effect on the user's responses – all giving a smoother, smoother impression. Users will appreciate the higher refresh rate not only during normal use, but also when playing games. The processor is taking care of the pace of the phone Kirin 990, which builds on a 7nm manufacturing process that makes it powerful enough, but also energy efficient. The processor has a three-level structure, so it consists of two large cores, two large and four small cores with a dominant frequency up to 2.86 GHz. In practice, the Kirin 990 is 20 percent more powerful than its predecessor (Kirin 980), yet 30 percent more efficient. It is also present in the chipset itself 5G modem – Huawei P40 Pro is now ready for the arrival of the Internet 5G.
The SuperSensing camera is located on the back of the P40 Pro. It consists of 50Mpx SuperSensing a main f / 1.9 chip with optical image stabilization, a 40Mpx ultra wide angle f / 1.8 and 12Mpx telephoto lens with up to 5x optical zoom, up to 10x hybrid zoom, or up to 50x digital zoom and f / 3.4 aperture. Three sensors are complemented by a ToF sensor for better depth-of-field processing and macro photography. The manufacturer presented the capabilities of the new P40 Pro at the press conference and did not spare superlatives. We will see how the mobile will do in practice. In addition to capturing images of the highest possible quality, the phone can also stabilize 4K video at up to 60 frames per second, as well as breathtaking slow-motion HD movies with 7,680 frames per second. Add that the main 50Mpx sensor offers ISO up to 409,600.
The manufacturer of the P40 Pro also attracts fast charging. Quickly replenish the energy of the 4 200mAh capacity accumulator SuperCharge 40W charger SuperCharge wireless technology charges 27W. The P40 Series also provides reverse 5W wireless charging, allowing users to recharge other devices such as Freebuds 3 headphones.
The P40 Pro weighs 209 grams and offers its customers increased dust and water resistance, ensuring IP68 protection. So with your mobile you can even go for a bath or shower and nothing happens to him. The operating system is Android 10 with the newer version EMUI 10.1 – this improved version has its premiere on the P40. Unfortunately, Google services (or apps) are still missing. The software is under the baton of the proprietary platform Huawei AppGallery. EMUI 10.1, on the other hand, brings a lot of news: for example, the Célio Virtual Assistant or Vision TV, which ensures clear picture quality even in low light or low signal conditions. Users can also share their phone screen with other participants during a video call and add notes to quickly share ideas.
Huawei P40 Pro will be offered in two memory configurations: 128GB or 256GB storage, RAM capacity is 8 GB in both cases. One SIM card and NM Card format can be inserted in the mobile phone.
Smaller but still well equipped, this is the new P40
Huawei P40 is a more compact phone with a 6.1-inch OLED display (Full HD + resolution) and a 32Mpx selfie camera cutout and 3D scanner to ensure user authentication even in the dark. At the back is a 50Mpx RYYB module that complements an 8Mpx telephoto lens and an ultra-wide 16 Mpx sensor. The battery has a relatively low capacity of 3,800 mAh, but charging again provides 40W SuperCharge technology (27W phone can wireless). The resistance of the mobile is characterized by the standard IP53, so the bath P40 will not stand unscathed.
