Specification and Color
The HUAWEI P40 series includes HUAWEI P40, HUAWEI P40 Pro and HUAWEI P40 Pro + . Among them, The HUAWEI P40 with 6.1-inch screen, which is smaller and lighter, and weighs only 175 grams. The HUAWEI P40 Pro and HUAWEI Pro + use with the 6.58-inch 90Hz screen. At the same time, they used HUAWEI Quad-Curved Overflow Design on the phone for the first time, ensuring that the front screen ratio is larger in visual perception.
Because of the different lens designs, the P40 Pro weighs 209g, and the P40 Pro weighs 226g. The P40 supports IP53 rated waterproof and is equipped with a 3800mAh battery. The P40 Pro and Pro + both support IP68 rated waterproof and are equipped with a 4200mAh battery.
The HUAWEI P40 and P40 Pro are available in Black, Deep Sea Blue, Ice White, Silver Frost and Blush Orange.
The HUAWEI P40 Pro has a ceramic body with ceramic black and ceramic white.
The three models of the HUAWEI P40 series are Triple camera, Quad camera, and Penta camera, but they all have a newly designed 5000-pixel main lens with a sensor size of 1 / 1.28 inches, which can be said to be the largest mobile phone lens sensor currently. Using RYYB photosensitive pixel matrix and supporting 50 million dual pixel focusing technology, the main lens sensor actually has 100 million focusing pixels.
In addition to the main lens, the HUAWEI P40 also has an 8MP optical telephoto lens and a 16MP ultra-wide-angle lens, which can achieve 3x hybrid optical zoom and 30x digital zoom.
In addition to the 50MP ultra vision wide main lens, The HUAWEI P40 Pro also has a 40MP ultra-wide cine lens same as the HUAWEI Mate30 Pro, which is responsible for dynamic video shooting and wide-angle photography. The third lens is a 5x optical zoom periscope lens, which can achieve 5x optical zoom and 50x digital zoom. And the last auxiliary lens is a ToF lens for depth sensing.
It is worth to mention that The HUAWEI P40 Pro + launched the world's 1st independent 10x optical periscope lens, which is the longest focal length lens in the industry using the periscope lens fixed focus optical solution. With that 10x optical periscope lens, the HUAWEI P40 Pro + can achieve 10x photos straight out, and can reach 100x digital zoom. In addition, HUAWEI P40 Pro + also has a telephoto lens with a 3x equivalent 80mm focal length, which can achieve a smooth transition from wide-angle to 10x zoom.
The most powerful intelligent front camera system of the HUAWEI P40 series includes a 32MP front camera, an infrared camera (for unlocking at night), and a human motion sensor. The only difference between the front lens of the three phones is that the front lens of the P40 does not support autofocus, while the P40 Pro and Pro + support autofocus.
In addition, HUAWEI also made some upgrades to the old lenses. The 40MP Cine lens equipped on the P40 Pro and P40 Pro + now supports 16 in 1 pixel fusion technology, which can synthesize a large 4.48μm pixel to ensure best low-light video or photography.
The HUAWEI P40 series also adopts smart tracking sound technology . The phone with 3 all-directionalmics with directivity beam-forming algorithm, which detecting the sound of the human subject during recording to offset the surrounding noise.
40W Wireless SuperCharge
The HUAWEI P40 series not only continues the 40W wired fast charging technology of the Mate30 Pro, but also applies the 40W wireless fast SuperCharge to the HUAWEI P40 Pro and HUAWEI P40 Pro +. The official HUAWEI data shows that the 40W wireless fast charge can fully charge the P40 Pro with 2730mAh battery capacity in 30 minutes.
The HUAWEI P40 series supports the new Wi-Fi 6+ technology, the basic bandwidth reaches 2400Mbps, and supports dynamic adjustment. In terms of core hardware, the entire HUAWEI P40 series is equipped with the Kirin 990 5G chip, which was used on the Mate 30 Pro last year. It uses 7nm EUV + technology, integrates 5G baseband chips, and has core technologies such as ISP 5.0.
P40 series will be equipped with HMS
At the HUAWEI P40 Series Online Global Launch conference, Richard Yu,CEO of HUAWEI Consumer Business Group confirmed that the HUAWEI P40 series will be equipped with HUAWEI Mobile Services (HMS) to instead of Google Mobile Services (GMS).
HUAWEI Mobile Services (HMS) is a collection of HUAWEI cloud service capabilities, which is a cross-platform, cross-device service. Its official launch means that HUAWEI already has complete ecological capabilities and is considered to be the basis of the cross-platform operating system HarmonyOS independently developed by HUAWEI. Many services of HMS will be launched in overseas markets, such as HUAWEI Reading, HUAWEI Video, and HUAWEIMusic. Richard Yu also expressed at the scene that HUAWEI welcome every developer worldwide to join the HMS ecosystem together.
