Huawei P40 family: what to expect on features and design for these flagship

The Chinese giant Huawei has presented the evolution of its famous P series, the main P40 family that is divided into three models, with two flagship cameras product.

Huawei P40

The entrance model has a full-screen design, having the display 6.1″ OLED panel, with a resolution of 2340×1080 and 19.8:9 with very thin and rounded edges on the 4 sides. Huawei P40 has a fingerprint sensor, 30% faster than its predecessors, and the front is also used for the sound reproduction, with the vibration system. Inside the Huawei P40 there is Kirin 990 octa-core, 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage, expandable to an additional 256 via the cards in Nano Memory format. The connectivity equipment includes 5G, Wi-Fi 6 Plus, Bluetooth 5.1, NFC and all the main navigation systems.

There is both physical dual-SIM support and the ability to take advantage of eSIM.

The main camera features f / 1.9 50 Megapixel, ultra-wide angle f / 2.2 16 Megapixel and telephoto f / 2.4 8 Megapixel with 3x optical zoom. The main sensor Ultra Vision is a CMOS 1 / 1.28 with 2.44 ?m pixels, equipped with RYYB filter and Full Pixel Octa PD Autofocus. Artificial intelligence adds further stabilization to what has already been achieved optically and electronically. AI, together with the Multi-Spectrum Color Temperature Sensor, allows you to increase color accuracy by up to 45%.

Huawei Golden Snap allows you to choose the best shots from a burst in motion, while other features allow you to remove unwanted elements or stand out in the foreground. The videos can be made in 4K.

On the front, the 32 Megapixel camera with f / 2.2 and autofocus is combined with an infrared sensor, with the possibility of exploiting the bokeh effect for portraits, also here with the help of AI but also to use the all for facial recognition.

Huawei P40 has a 3800 mAh battery with 22.5 W fast charging support, only via USB-C cable but without Qi support for wireless charging. Wide choice of shades, Ice White, Deep Sea Blue and Black with glass finishes, or Blush Gold and Silver Frost if you prefer a more opaque appearance. EMUI 10.1 is pre-installed, based on Android 10 (but without Google services), with the addition of MeeTime video calls and the enhancement of Huawei Share for the exchange of data and content with other devices.

Huawei MeeTime is a high-quality video call experience app introduced by Huawei for its high quality flagship devices.

Huawei P40 Pro

This new “quad-edge” front panel will be further reinforced by a new body design created by Huawei, which will create slight “lips” in the metal frame on the corners. The design should thus allow to protect the corners of the glass , which are usually one of the most vulnerable parts of a smartphone, from accidental falls and possible breakages.

The RYYB filter also extends here to ultra-wide-angle. Videos captured in slow motion even up to 7680 fps (but falling to 720p). Real-time bokeh simulation and possibility to make 4K movies, even in time lapse, through the telephoto lens. The audio zoom that is activated in correlation with the video one is also interesting. The rest of the hardware is identical to that of the P40, except for the native storage that rises to 256 GB and the 4200 mAh battery with 40 W quick charge wired and support also for the wireless one, which reaches 27 W.

Huawei P40 Pro+

Huawei P40 Pro+ is a further evolution of what we have seen above, starting from the design, with a nano-tech ceramic rear panel, to increase its resistance, in two available shades, White Ceramic and Black Ceramic. The cameras, with the telephoto system consisting of two sensors: the first is the same as that of the P40, while the second is an 8 Megapixel f / 4.4 periscopic that supports up to 10x optical zoom and 100x digital zoom. The same hardware as the P40 Pro, but the storage doubles again, to 512 GB, and to further boost performance there is an advanced cooling system.

Huawei P40 and P40 Pro are at the price of € 799.90 and € 1049.90. All buyers from March 26 to May 4 will receive Huawei Watch GT2 Matte Black for free, along with additional software benefits such as 50 GB for one year on Huawei Cloud, 10 films or € 50 on Huawei Video and three months free of Huawei Music. The price and pre-order information of the P40 Pro+ will follow in the coming weeks.

This should contain a standard resolution sensor , accompanied by one of the ultra-wide type , suitable for group self-portraits.

Huawei Watch GT 2e

Huawei Watch GT 2e has a sportier design than the GT 2 models introduced a few months ago, with a 1.39-inch AMOLED screen. On the hardware level, it adds to the already known rich set the monitoring of oxygen saturation in the blood. The vocation for fitness is demonstrated by the 100 available training modes that cover all the main sports activities. The battery has an autonomy of up to two weeks. GT 2e will be available from April 10 at the price of € 169 in the Graphite Black, Lava Red, Mint Green and Icy White colors, with fluorinated rubber strap. Small innovations also concern the 42 mm GT 2, now also with Champagne Gold crown and Frosty White and Chestnut Red straps.
