Huawei P40, P40 Pro and P40 Pro Plus: smartphone photography like you've never seen it before

Richard Yu CEO of Huawei's consumer division launched the new Huawei P40 and P40 Pro smartphone models a few minutes ago with the slogan Together 2020. Here are photos and characteristics of the terminals.

It starts from recent history that passes from Huawei P9 and P10, to get to the Leica triple camera of the P20 with Master AI photography and, finally, to the P30 with the Leica quad Camera, superzoom and night vision of absolute level.

The new challenge the Huawei P40 with 5G support with the basic model P40 and the version 40 Pro and 40 Pro Plus with a visionary design, Nano-Tech ceramic material with uninterrupted curvature. Shining and with the resistance of the sapphire. The design provides for the alignment of the logo with the main cameras in line.

The Quad Cruve Overflow dispaly has a particular curvature, which reaches all sides of the display, but protected in the corners: the screen really reaches the edge of the surface with the 6.58 inches of the Pro model with Flex OLED, and DCI P3 HDR technology that ensures an excellent view of all photo and video content.

The comparison of the edges is done, not only with iPhone, but also with P30. The reduction of the edges makes the phone more manageable, even if the screen is larger.

There is also the fingerprint recognition sensor behind the screen, now with 30% more efficient speed, all seasoned with IP68 protection.

THE colors they are iCE White, Deep Sea Blue and Black (classic) with a refractive matte finish that represents a further innovation for the colors Silver Frost and Blush Gold (Cipia gold). Ceramick Black and White will be available for the P40 Plus model.

Cameras

But let's get to the photographic skills that differentiate the various models: P40 has three cameras, P40 Pro four and P40 Pro Plus five. The top feature comes called Ultravision, but combines Wide and Ultrawide ultra-high resolution lenses with different telephoto levels with a high sensitivity and huge size Ultavision sensor with large pixels and 409600 ISO sensitivity, all characteristics far superior to those of the iPhone and Samsung Galaxy.

Another interesting aspect is the auto focus and the color temperature sensor which is 40% more accurate. LXD fusion Image Engine allows you to combine the images of different cameras and, together with AI, allows you to enjoy an optimized combination of colors, details and details.

The images shown on the stage show extraordinary shots, made in conditions of very low brightness, even with a single shot.

The top can also be reached in the telephoto extension of the images with an optical 10X (8 Mpixel) of the P40 Pro Plus model.

The comparison is done with S20 Ultra and Huawei is certainly more effective and precise.

Golden Snap a feature of AI that finds the best moment of a sequence facilitating the choice in a multi shot. Yet, AI Remove Passerby removes moving subjects, leaving only what is posing in the scene. Other effect Remove Reflection, which eliminates reflections when taking photos through a shop window or window.

Still, another of the interesting features the front camera defined as the most intelligent 32 MP front camera with integrated AI: it supports Face Unlock even at very low lights, gesture control, and various sensors, and also allows you to have 4K selfie videos with autofocus shots and Bokeh effect.

The gestures are those of remote swipes for scrolling and saving the screen.

Cine Camera

After Mate 30 Pro also the serious P gets cameras with Dual OIS (Optical stabilization)and EIS (Electronic stabilization) able to shoot excellent videos with improved capacities thanks to Pixel Fusion 16 in 1, ISO videos up to 51200, so as to be able to shoot videos in very low light conditions, 4K Time Lapse with SuperZoom, Dual View Video with half screen that records the zoomed image and the other half with wide angle.

The Directional Zoom Audio allows, thanks to the 3 Beamforming microphones to have recordings of excellent level and in the exact direction from which the sound comes.
