Take a best picture without using a pro camera - HUAWEI P40 Pro Review
On March 26, HUAWEI released the P40 series, including HUAWEI P40, HUAWEI P40 Pro HUAWEI and P40 Pro+. Among them, the positioning of HUAWEI P40 Pro+ is similar to the Samsung S20 Ultra. Regardless of configuration or parameters, it can be said that HUAWEI P40 Pro+ is the best at the moment, and even rewritten the new standard of mobile photography.
01 Ultra Vision Sensor Leica Penta Camera Performance
The release of HUAWEI P30 Pro not only brought the periscope camera and RYYB pixel arrangement, won the titles of "telescope" and "night vision", but also successfully made "multiple zoom" become the standard configuration of flagship mobile phones. NowHUAWEI P40 Pro+ has fully upgraded the mobile phone photography technology-the first 50-megapixel lens of the Sony IMX 700, the periscope lens with 10x lossless zoom, and the Supersensing cine camera.
The first IMX700 sensor/RYYB pixel arrangement
The 50MP main camera of HUAWEI P40 Pro+ adopts IMX700 sensor, has 1/1.28 inch outsole and uses RYYB color array, which can be said that it is the industry's top lens from all parameters.
The size of the sensor determines the strength of the camera's ability to capture light. The HUAWEI P40 Pro+ is equipped with Sony IMX 700 sensor and has a 1/1.28-inch outsole, which can bring higher dynamic range and less noise for imaging. When shooting night scenes, it can ensure more lighting, and the night scene imaging quality has been further improved than the previous generation P30 Pro.
In addition, HUAWEI P40 Pro+ also continues the RYYB pixel arrangement of HUAWEI P30 Pro, which can effectively reduce the light loss caused by the color filter process. The thicker spectral structure of the RYYB array also makes the limit ISO of HUAWEI P40 Pro+ further improved , So it can achieve clear imaging in a completely dark environment.
World's first Multi-Reflection Super Periscope Telephoto
HUAWEI P40 Pro+ is equipped with a periscope camera with 10x lossless zoom, which can achieve up to 10x optical zoom, 20x hybrid zoom, and 100x digital zoom, which can be said to be the mobile phone with the strongest zoom performance.
In addition, HUAWEI P40 Pro+ is also equipped with an 8 million telephoto camera that can achieve 3x optical zoom, and supports OIS optical image stabilization, which can cover mid-range and close-range shooting.
With the cooperation of 3x telephoto lens and 10x periscope telephoto lens, and relying on Kirin 990 5G's powerful ISP processing capability and AI automatic white balance algorithm, HUAWEI P40 Pro+ can not only cover zoom shooting from close-range to super long-range, but also can switch super wide to high magnification smoothly when shooting video, which greatly enhances the user's photography experience.
Super sensitive cine camera + ToF camera
HUAWEI P40 Pro+ is also equipped with a super-sensitive film camera, with 1/ .54 inch outsole and 16-in-1 pixel fusion technology, which can shoot 4K super zoom time-lapse photography and 7680fps ultra-high-speed photography. The 16-in-1 mode is to combine 16 pixels into one, and form a large pixel by combining multiple pixels to increase the photosensitive area of a single pixel, so that the night scene image quality performance is more delicate.
The last lens of HUAWEI P40 Pro + is the ToF camera's own infrared light source, which can also obtain accurate depth of field information in dark light environments, and can recognize distances farther than 3D structured light.In addition, ToF plays the role of wide-area laser focusing, but also has richer depth of field information, which can bring a better portrait mode photography experience.
Upgraded AI graphics engine algorithm brings more new ways to take pictures
HUAWEI P40 Pro+ also has a brand new upgrade in algorithm. Multiple cameras can take photos at the same time, and the optimization of the AI image engine can achieve better shooting efforts.
AI Best Moment, help you capture the most exciting moments when shooting.
AI Best Passersby, "passerby elimination" function helps you eliminate irrelevant passersby.
AI Remove Reflection, allows you to ignore reflections and shoot at any time.
Upgraded video shooting capabilities, easy shooting 4K ultra-clear picture quality
HUAWEI P40 Pro+ also supports smooth zooming during video shooting, which means that ultra-wide to 100x zoom can be smoothly converted during shooting. And thanks to the outsole of the lens and the excellent adjustment function, HUAWEI P40 Pro+ can also shoot clear video images even in the extreme low light environment. In addition, the function of HUAWEI P30 Pro taking pictures of the moon has also been upgraded to the "2.0" stage-HUAWEI P40 Pro+ can take videos for the super moon.
With the support of HUAWEI’s powerful processor, multiple cameras of HUAWEI P40 Pro+ can also realize the “dual video recording” function, which means that when one lens shoots a panorama, the other lens can also shoot close-ups at the same time. This function is very useful for users who like to shoot short videos and Vlog.
In addition, in order to bring a better shooting experience, HUAWEI P40 Pro+ has 3 microphones, which can collect sound directionally when shooting video, making the sound effect even better.
Front combination of 32MP + infrared lens
The front of HUAWEI P40 Pro+ also has a 32MP autofocus lens, which can achieve a good background blur with an infrared camera, bringing a different self-timer experience.
The infrared depth camera of HUAWEI P40 Pro+ also supports face unlock in low light. At the same time, the Grab to screen capture function, support Smart gesture control and Swipe to Scroll can be easily realized by the HUAWEI P40 Pro+.
02 Support the full band 5G network, Powerful Kirin 990 5G
The Kirin 990 5G equipped with HUAWEI P40 Pro+ is not only the industry ’s first 5G SoC with 7nm + EUV process, but also the world ’s first mobile terminal chip with more than 10 billion transistors. At the same time, it is also the world ’s first commercial integrated 5G SoC with lower power consumption.
