Amidst the coronavirus epidemic, the Huawei P40 Series has been officially announced with an online launch. This is the second time they’ve done an online launch, a month after they presented the Huawei Mate XS and other new products last month. The new Huawei P40 series consists of the P40, P40 P40 Pro and the P40 Pro+.
The Huawei P40 Pro and Huawei P40 Pro+ are equipped with the HUAWEI Quad-curve Overflow Display. Inspired by the art of motion, the display takes on a curved edge on all four sides, creating a shape that is reminiscent of water on the cusp of overflowing from the rim of a filled cup.
The super narrow bezels and streamlined round corners ensure an ergonomic hold and a near borderless look, while an enhanced in-screen fingerprint reader offers 30 percent faster biometric authentication.
The Huawei P40 and P40 Pro+ exude classical elegance from every angle with its three glossy glass finishes and two innovative matte glass finishes. Colors available for the glossy finishes are Ice White, Deep Sea Blue and Black while the matte finishes are available in Blush Gold and Silver Frost.
On the other hand, the Huawei P40 Pro+ features an exquisite nano-tech ceramic back panel that is kilned and polished to ensure it stands the test of time with incredible durability. This unique design comes in two colors: Ceramic White and Ceramic Black.
The P-series is well known for its unparalleled imaging capabilities, and as expected, Huawei has upped the ante again this year. Embedded in the Huawei P40 Series is the advanced Ultra Vision Leica camera system, available in triple-camera, quad-camera and penta-camera configurations. The P40 delivers outstanding photographic results with ultra wide-angle, wide-angle and telephoto lenses. The P40 Pro features an evolution of the Leica Quad Camera with a more powerful Ultra Wide Cine Camera and ToF Camera alongside 50x SuperSensing Zoom. For the first time ever, the 5x Optical Telephoto Camera in the P40 Pro includes a RYYB colour filter array to boost light intake and improve quality of zoomed shots.
The P40 Pro+ has a 100x SuperZoom Array with a new periscope design that reflects light five times, extending the light path by 178 percent to support 10x true optical zoom. The optically stabilized Ultra Vision Wide Camera and SuperZoom Array work in tandem with AI to realise Triple OIS+AIS for vastly improved photo and video stabilisation. In sample photos shown during the presentation, the photo taken with the 100x SuperZoom had a clearer photo compared to its direct competitor with the same feature, the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra.
Both the P40 Pro and P40 Pro+ have a 32MP AF Camera and IR Depth Camera that support autofocus and Bokeh reproduction to deliver the same outstanding portrait effects that are signature to Huawei devices, as well as IR Face Unlock for device unlock even in low light conditions. The Huawei P40 Series also introduces Huawei Golden Snap, which includes AI Best Moment. This new smart photography feature chooses the best frames from a Moving Picture. AI Remove Passerby and AI Remove Reflection can do away with unwanted subjects and glare from the frame, allowing users to easily enhance their images after the fact without using a third-party app.
The 40MP Ultra Wide Cine Camera in the P40 Pro and the P40 Pro+ has a focal length that is equivalent to 18mm and a 1/1.54-inch sensor supporting the 3:2 aspect ratio. SedecimPixel Fusion Technology is built into this camera to support 16-in-1 pixel binning, producing super pixels that measure 4.48μm to boost light sensitivity up to ISO 51200 and enable 7680 fps Ultra Slow-Motion video capture.
The P40 Series supports real-time Bokeh effects for videos. Similar to the results of a wide aperture lens, this feature adds progressive Bokeh to help highlight the main subject of the footage. The telephoto camera can capture high quality zoom footage as well as 4K time-lapse videos. Additionally for the P40 Pro and P40 Pro+ they have the Directional Audio Zoom which allows users to zoom in on an audio source and amplify its sound at the same time.
Powering the P40 series is the Kirin 990 5G chipset which also powers the Huawei Mate 30 Pro. Display responsiveness and gaming experience are taken to the next level by the upgraded graphics rendering engine making the most of the 90Hz panel on the HUAWEI P40 Pro and HUAWEI P40 Pro+. The 160MHz Wi-Fi 6 Plus technology featured in the full line-up offers high-speed connectivity with support for 2,400Mbps peak theoretical transmission speed.
