Here is everything you need to know about Huawei P40 Pro before you buy

Huawei P40 Pro is the newest addition to there Huawei collection of smartphones. Here is what you should know about this new high end android based mobile phone.

Previously we talked about Realme 6S Specs, and now we are back with Huawei P40 Pro.

Huawei P40 Pro

#Kirin    #G    #core    #processor    #power   

It uses the Huawei Kirin 990 5 G CPU, which is an octa – core processor, with its fastest cores running up to 2.86 GHz.

The enhanced running speed and lower power consumption come courtesy of the innovative Kirin 990 5 G processor at the core of the phone.

The Kirin 990 5 G integrates its 5 G modem right into the chipset, which leads to greater power efficiency compared to Qualcomm’s 5 G discrete modem.

Huawei’s own Kirin 990 processor, an octa – core chip based on the ARM Cortex A76 architecture with a separate Neural Processing Unit ( NPU ) for artificial intelligence duties, is inside the P40 Pro.

In summary, the Kirin 990 is a decent system – on – a – chip ( SoC ) with similar CPU power to the Snapdragon 855, but with lesser GPU performance.

#phone    #smartphone    #year   

Huawei refined the camera — the staple feature of the P series — to a point where it is the best camera on any phone to date.

And last year’s P30 Pro, with its quad – lens system, hands down had the best smartphone camera on the market.

A mainstay of Huawei cameras for several years, it’s not the mainstay mode for night shots here, because the standard camera is so incredibly good on its own.

Huawei’s P series phones are built around photography – and in recent years, the company has set the bar pretty high for the competition.

DxOMark currently ranks the Huawei P40 Pro’s camera as the best in a smartphone, and after shooting for a couple of weeks or so with the phone, I ‘m inclined to agree.

#model    #pack    #end   

Spanning the expected P40 and P40 Pro, alongside an extra – premium P40 Pro+, Huawei’s latest flagships pack in top – end tech including an array of camera enhancements.

I tested the P40 Pro which is the high – end model — though a P40 Pro+ is also in the pipeline, which will have even better specs, especially with camera.

The P40 Pro boasts AI – assisted camera technology, a unique wrap – around screen and comes with a limited time PS235 gift pack with promo code AFANP40PRO.

The 40MP ultra – wide cine camera from the Mate 30 Pro made its way to the P40 Pro and it’s a brilliant upgrade.

The BBC’s Chris Fox went hands – on with the mid – range model, the P40 Pro, to puts its new camera to the test.

#phone    #way   

If you ‘ve used the Mate 30 Pro, the P30 Pro, or earlier phones like the P20 Pro, the software will be familiar territory.

Huawei is confident the App Gallery will improve in the future, but we can only assess the app situation as it stands today. To get around this, Huawei has its own AppGallery which I’ll go into more detail on within the review – as well as some other ways to get your favourite apps onto the P40 Pro.

No flagship phone worth its salt in 2020 would launch without 5 G connectivity and the P40 Pro is no exception.

This is a fantastic phone that is let down by missing apps but if Huawei can get more top developers on board, and pretty quickly, there may be some light at the end of the tunnel.

#battery    #life    #connectivity    #quality   

It ticks so many boxes : a great screen, superb build quality, incredible battery life, and of course that world – class camera system.

Its camera is arguably the best on the market at the moment, the build quality is stellar, and the battery tech is brilliant.

The design is stunning, screen is great, camera is fantastic and battery life is the best you’ll find on a flagship Android phone right now.

The Huawei P40 Pro has fabulous hardware and a dreamy camera, with a long – lasting battery to ensure you get the most from both.

Over two generations of Huawei devices in the P series have seen some of the best battery life out of any phone around at the time, and the P40 Pro doesn’t disappoint.

#GB    #RAM    #storage    #variant    #Yuan   

The phone is available in two storage variants which include 8 GB RAM + 512 GB storage is priced at 8,888 Yuan, while the 8 GB RAM + 256 GB storage variant is priced at 7,988 Yuan.

The device is available in its dual SIM 8 GB variant with 8 GB RAM and 256 GB of storage in Black and Silver Frost colours.

Spec heads might be disappointed with 8 GB of RAM when there are phones with 12 and 16 GB of RAM out there.

This is 8 GB RAM / 512 GB internal storage base variant of Huawei P40 Pro Plus which is expected to available in White Ceramic, Black Ceramic colour.

P40 Pro comes with 8 GB RAM, 256 GB ROM, and a 4200 mAh battery to last you all day without a recharge.

#iPhone   

The series had three 5 G supporting phones – the Huawei P40, Huawei P40 Pro, and the Huawei P40 Pro Plus.

Both the Huawei P40 Pro and the iPhone 11 Pro Max feature similarly sized batteries at 4,200 and 3,969 mAh respectively.

Most of the specifications of the Huawei P40 Pro Plus are similar to the Huawei P40 Pro except for a few differences.

We did find that the Huawei P40 Pro was a bit chunky, but still ergonomically impressive just like the iPhone 11 Pro Max.

We’ll be putting the Huawei P40 Pro up against Apple’s iPhone 11 Pro Max, two of the best large smartphones on the market.

The range includes the base P40, the P40 Pro and the P40 Pro Plus, and Huawei hopes they’ll take the fight to the likes of the iPhone 11 Pro, Galaxy S20 and OnePlus 8.

#lens    #MP    #telephoto    #depth   

The rear camera consists of a 52 MP ( wide ) Periscope ( telephoto ) 10x optical zoom + 8 MP ( telephoto ) 3x optical zoom + 40 MP ( ultrawide ) + TOF 3D, ( depth ) while on the front camera has an 32 MP sensor.

The camera setup also includes a 50MP Ultra Vision Leica Quad Camera, 40MP Ultra – Wide Cine Camera for recording movie 4 K quality videos, a 12MP 5x Optical Telephoto Camera and a ToF Camera.

Huawei Pay Apple Pay Processor Kirin 990 Apple A13 Bionic RAM 8 GB 4 GB Camera Quad – lens ultra – wide – angle 40MP, standard 50MP with OIS, 12MP telephoto, and 3D depth – sensing camera rear.

#Google    #Store   

The Huawei P40 Pro does not have Google Mobile Services ( GMS ) installed, which means no Google Play, Google Pay, Google Maps, or any other Google – backed app or service.

It may be Android, but remember that Google Play Services, the Google Play Store, and most Google apps are not available.

That ban also means it doesn’t use Google apps — including access to the Google Play Store — but the phone does have 5 G and a good camera.

But any other apps such as most Australian weather apps, Citymapper, the NSW Opal card app, UberEats, Telstra account app and my banking apps were noticeably absent.

So, that means no Google Play Store and in turn, an absence of apps unless they appear in the Huawei App Gallery. 12

#mode    #night    #shots   

Speaking of night shots, the P40 Pro does an excellent job capturing colours and details even in low – light settings.

The RYYB sensor seems to help a lot with detail capture, and the P40 Pro can truly see in the dark with its night mode.

The below shots weren’t taken in portrait or aperture modes, this is what the hardware is capable of in the de facto Photo mode.

I ‘m also impressed by the P40 Pro’s bokeh — both artificial bokeh mode in Aperture or Portrait mode, or natural bokeh generated by the large sensor.

You have to experiment with the camera, as sometimes Night mode will take a brighter, more detailed picture, but often just leaving it in normal mode produces startlingly good low – light images.

#thing    #Xs    #buys   

While everything in Huawei’s control when it comes to the P40 Pro is very good, there is one thing that causes frustration for such an outstanding device.

And in an unprecedented move, if you buy one from Huawei’s online store now, you’ll get a P40 Lite free with your P40 Pro or P40 purchase.

Don’t forget to use the coupon code AFANP40PRO at checkout, and to enter the P40 Pro+ giveaway after adding it to your cart!

Due to movement restrictions I have not been able to test the 5 G connection on the P40 Pro, but found it was excellent on the Mate Xs.

And ultimately, the biggest problem that anyone who buys the P40 will face is they’ll have to figure out new ways to do things they’re already accustomed to.

#remove    #photos    #AI    #features    #Reflection   

You can also remove someone extra from your photo with the AI Remove Passerby and even remove unwanted reflections with AI Remove Reflection for a cleaner shot.

Huawei’s P40 Pro has an exciting feature that lets you remove people from photos, but I found the other new camera features way more useful and easier to use.

We took Huawei’s P40 Pro on a road test to see its next gen AI in action on its cameras – you can use its Remove Passersby and Remove Reflection functions.

Huawei said in March that it had given its P40 Pro an artificial intelligence ( AI ) boost that could remove entire human beings out of photos.

It has a whole range of new smart features that givers users more control over their shots – including a function that lets you remove people from photos.

#speaker    #display    #mounted    #microphone   

The top – mounted IR – blaster and microphone are satisfyingly aligned, and the same goes for the bottom – mounted SIM tray, microphone, USB – C port, and speaker.

The speaker on the p30 Pro is not quite as good as other phones which use the top speaker for a stereo effect.

Even though we noticed the speaker audio quality wasn’t top – notch, we feel that the P40 Pro’s slightly larger battery, and industry – leading 40W wireless charging, gives it a strong edge when combined with its strong performance and 90Hz display.

The pretty – much – equal battery life, display, durability, and price point offer no real helping hands to the iPhone, while the color choices, and wicked fast smart charging of Huawei’s latest offering continue to tip the needle in the direction of the P40 Pro.

#work    #home    #network    #productivity   

One key factor when working from home is connectivity and if you can not depend on your home network, your mobile network would have to do.

Be it for working from home, attending conference calls or even apps that help you to enhance your productivity, the Huawei AppGallery has it all.

On the other hand, if you are going to use a WiFi network, the phone’s Wi – Fi 6 Plus capability for an accelerated network experience that is useful when working from home or handling multiple tasks together.

In addition to work related features, the Huawei P40 Pro’s wide range of features are also great to kick back and relax, which is essential for productivity.

All work and no rest does have a negative effect on productivity, making it important to take a break every now and then.

#fingerprint    #screen    #display    #corners    #glass   

Same cpu, same screen, same storage ( if you get the 128 gb version ) both have reverse wireless charging, in display fingerprint and wide angle lens.

The excessively rounded screen corners, the massive camera bump, the distractingly – big punch – hole, and the strange raised corners take it down a peg or two for me.

Huawei has also moved the fingerprint sensor higher up in the screen based on user feedback, and this works really well.

The optical in – display fingerprint scanner, which Huawei claims is 30 % larger and 30 % faster than the previous model, is a noticeable improvement.

The 6.58 OLED display also has an embedded fingerprint reader underneath the glass that is heaps faster than previous models, and also slightly faster than competitors who offer the same method of unlocking.

#zoom    #magnification    #taken    #photos    #level   

When there’s enough light available, the 10X zoom works quite well and the photos are almost as clear as ones taken using only the optical zoom.

No, you won’t want to share the photos taken at this level of magnification very often, but it’s impossible to deny how good it is, compared to the disastrous shots taken with even moderate zooms just a few years ago.

The telephoto lens features a periscoping mechanism that offers 5X optical zoom ( read as : an actual real zoom ) along with 10X hybrid zoom and an insane 50X digital zoom.

The P40 Pro’s telephoto lens has a 5X magnification and a 10X hybrid zoom ( which combines digital and optical zooms ) and 50X times digital zoom ( which is, not surprisingly, super grainy ).

#charging    #battery    #minutes    #wireless    #SuperCharge   

The smartphone is fueled by a Non – removable Li – Po 5500 mAh battery + Fast Battery charging 50W + Fast wireless charging 27W + Power bank / Reverse wireless charging.

It has both fast wired charging, which took an hour and 10 minutes to take the battery from 5 % to full, and fast wireless charging too.

A 40W SuperCharge adapter is included in the box to take the 4,200mAh battery from zero to 100 % in 74 minutes.

If you do need to charge up the device, this can be done quickly with the ability to go from zero to 70 per cent charge in only 30 minutes.

You don’t have to worry about recharging either, because the Huawei P40 Pro also has a 40W Huawei SuperCharge along with support for Huawei’s wireless Supercharge features to charge your phone back up faster than ever.

#host    #TV    #launch    #SA    #entertainment   

The online launch was hosted by TV host and actress Minnie Dlamini and was one for the books as well – known SA celebs provided enjoyable entertainment.

Hosted by TV host and actress Minnie Dlamini, the online launch was a memorable one, with some well – known SA celebs providing some great moments and enjoyable entertainment.

But it was the HUAWEI P40 Series that stole the show, as the king of smartphones among SA’s kings and queens of the entertainment industry.

During the launch, Huawei welcomed its new HUAWEI P40 series ambassadors to the Huawei family – rapper Nasty C, TV personality Thando Thabethe, actor and entrepreneur Nay Maps, former Miss South Africa Tamryn Green as well as fashion designer David Tlale.

#video    #zooms    #amplify    #sound    #subject   

What this does is allow the user to amplify sound coming from a single source while zooming in on the subject in a video.

Sound capturing is also improved with an audio zoom function which lets users zero in on the subject’s voice and amplify it sound while dampening background noise.

As you can see ( or hear ) in the video below, the whirring of the desk fan gets louder as the camera zooms in to focus on it.

Huawei P40 Pro Features Part 2

#flagship    #series    #market   

Both the Huawei P20 and P30 series have impressed with camera performance, while the latter still has one of the best smartphone cameras today.

It’s that time of year again where Huawei brings out its flagship P series, and despite all that’s going on around us, that hasn’t stopped Huawei from launching the P40 series.

For this reason alone, I think it will be a real task for Huawei to sell this series in the Western markets.

Huawei tends to use the P – series models to showcase the company’s latest mobile camera technologies, and the brand – new P40 Pro, its P – series flagship device for 2020, is no different, with camera specs and features that any competitor will find hard to match.

#including    #Coming    #GB   

Coming to storage, the Huawei P40 Pro includes 256 GB, the Huawei P40 has 128 GB, and the Huawei P40 Pro+ will come with 512 GB.

The lineup includes the Huawei P40, Huawei P40 Pro, and the Huawei P40 Pro+ carrying three, four, and five Leica camera sensors at the back, respectively.

Storage on the Huawei P40 Pro and the Huawei P40 can be expanded via Huawei’s Nano Memory 2 card but the Huawei P40 Pro+ does not have that feature.

The Huawei P40 and P40 Pro will be available from April 7, while the Huawei P40 Pro+ won’t arrive till June.

The Huawei P40 Pro+, on the other hand, is slightly thicker and heavier than the Huawei P40 Pro at 158.2×72.6×9.0 mm and 226 grams.

#charging    #battery    #wireless    #USB    #C   

The smartphone is fueled by a Non – removable Li – Po 5500 mAh battery + Fast Battery charging 50W + Fast wireless charging 27W + Power bank / Reverse wireless charging.

We ‘ve seen some serious advancements in both wired and wireless charging over the past few years, with reverse wireless charging, super – fast 45W charging, and 15W wireless charging.

The Huawei P40 gets a smaller 3,800 mAh battery capacity, losses out on wireless charging and opts for 22.5 wired charging support.

The Huawei P40 Pro+ has the same capacity and charging speed as the Huawei P40 Pro but supports a maximum of 40W wireless charging.

The Huawei P40-series phone are 5 G and Wi – Fi 6 compatible, and offer other connectivity options like Bluetooth5.1, USB Type – C charging port, no headphone jack, and NFC.

#choice    #hands    #market   

Huawei P40 Pro is a worthy successor to Huawei P30 Pro and a dangerous adversary for all top – end smartphones on the market.

I tried to put Huawei P40 Pro in a bundled case from P30 Pro and it almost perfectly fit in it.

Before we get started, let’s make something clear : I only got my hands on the brand spanking new Huawei P40 Pro this morning.

As I ‘ve only had my hands on the Huawei P40 Pro for a few hours, I ‘ve not had a chance to venture outside and take some proper snaps with it.

I warn you that my distorted personal opinion may be noticeable, as it’s a very similar experience to Huawei P30 Pro.

#light    #Night   

Like with the Mate 30 Pro, Huawei implements a large and high – resolution image sensor ( 40MP 1/1.54 ” ) in its ultra – wide camera, which combined with a fast f/1.8 lens, should make for excellent low – light image quality.

Its 5x zoom produces crisp shots of faraway subjects, and images takin in low light and at night time are easily up there with the best.

That should deliver on Huawei’s claim of massive light, high dynamic range, and low noise in any lighting and rocket it to the top of the smartphone camera leaderboard.

Unlike the black and white or grayscale functions on other cameras, Huawei’s monochrome photos automatically provide a Leica – quality finish to images.

#sensor    #lens    #depth    #OIS   

Namely, there is an ordinary camera ( 50 megapixels f/1.9 ), a wide – angle camera ( 40 megapixels, f/1.8 ), a telephoto lens ( 12 megapixels, f/2.4 ) and a depth sensor.

The Huawei P40 Pro features a quad rear – camera setup carrying a 50MP primary camera with OIS clubbed with a 40MP ultra wide cine lens, 12MP 5x optical telephoto lens with OIS, and a ToF depth sensing lens.

On the front, the pill – shaped punch – hole carries a 32MP selfie camera, an IR depth / gesture camera, and an ambient and proximity sensor.

The P40 Pro packs four lenses : a standard zoom, a super wide – angle lens, a 5x optical zoom lens and a depth – sensing lens.

#score    #tests    #detail   

The Photo score is calculated from sub – scores in tests that examine different aspects of a device’s performance for still images under different lighting conditions.

The Huawei P40 Pro achieves a Photo score of 140 points, making it the best device for still images to date.

The Huawei P40 Pro controls all kinds of image artifacts very well and deservedly achieves a very high score for this category.

Video artifacts are controlled very well and the Huawei achieves one of the best scores we have seen for this attribute.

About DXOMARK Camera tests : For scoring and analysis in our smartphone camera reviews, DXOMARK engineers capture and evaluate over 1600 test images and more than 2 hours of video both in controlled lab environments and in natural indoor and outdoor scenes, using the camera’s default settings.

#zoom    #hoping   

I was hoping for more from the telephoto camera from the P40 Pro considering the P30 Pro also delivered a similar experience regarding 5x optical and 50x digital.

As Huawei’s product announcement on Thursday ( 26 March ) revealed, there’s so much more to the P40 Pro’s camera than I initially realised.

Don’t get me wrong, though; the P30 Pro’s quality isn’t on par with the 5x optical zoom featured in the P40 Pro, but I was hoping for more from the device.

I tested the P40 Pro which is the high – end model — though a P40 Pro+ is also in the pipeline, which will have even better specs, especially with camera.

If you’re tempted to get the P40 Pro instead of the standard P40, it may be because of camera upgrades to the base model, like the 5x optical zoom.

#GB    #RAM    #storage    #memory    #core   

The heart of the device is SoC HiSilicon Kirin 990 5 G, supplemented with 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage.

The Huawei P40 also comes in a single RAM and storage configuration, 8 GB + 128 GB, which is priced at EUR 799 ( roughly Rs. 66,300 ).

This is 8 GB RAM / 512 GB internal storage base variant of Huawei P40 Pro Plus which is expected to available in White Ceramic, Black Ceramic colour.

All three phones also pack the octa – core Kirin 990 5 G SoC, the Mali – G76 MC16 GPU, and 8 GB of RAM.

The Huawei P40 Pro boasts a whopping 8 GB of RAM on board, providing plenty of memory for multitasking and background processing.

#iPhone    #Max    #Apple    #smartphone   

We’ll be putting the Huawei P40 Pro up against Apple’s iPhone 11 Pro Max, two of the best large smartphones on the market.

We did find that the Huawei P40 Pro was a bit chunky, but still ergonomically impressive just like the iPhone 11 Pro Max.

For this we have to go with the tried and true reliability of iOS 13 on the iPhone 11 Pro Max.

Unless you are devoted to an Apple ecosystem complete with Apple Watch and Macbooks, we don’t see a compelling reason to chose the iPhone 11 Pro Max over Huawei’s latest powerhouse flagship phone.

Priced at S$1,448, the 6.58-inch P40 Pro is cheaper than Apple’s iPhone 11 series, but also comes without any Google apps.

#pixels    #resolution    #screen    #equipped    #OLED 

The new model was equipped with a slightly curved 6.58-inch flexible OLED screen with a resolution of 2640 x 1200 pixels.

The Huawei P40 features a 6.1-inch screen with 2340×1080 pixels resolution whereas the P40 Pro and the P40 Pro+ feature a 6.58-inch display with 2640×1200 pixels resolution.

The Huawei P40 Pro has a 6.58-inch ( 1,200×2,640 pixels ) OLED screen with a 90Hz refresh rate, which is the same for the Huawei P40 Pro+.

The new autofocus system comes with dual phase detection on all sub – pixels and can use all pixels for autofocusing.

It also supports pixel binning to achieve a pixel size of 2.44 mm ( microns ), a massive uptick over the S20 Ultra’s 0.8um.

#remove    #photos    #AI    #features    #users   

Golden Snap uses AI to give you the best moment in a photo and remove passersby and reflections from your photos.

It has a whole range of new smart features that givers users more control over their shots – including a function that lets you remove people from photos.

Huawei’s P40 Pro has an exciting feature that lets you remove people from photos, but I found the other new camera features way more useful and easier to use.

The smartphone’s camera can use AI to help users select the best shot, and can also remove unwanted strangers from the background of photographs.

Huawei said in March that it had given its P40 Pro an artificial intelligence ( AI ) boost that could remove entire human beings out of photos.

#G    #need    #networks   

You’ll need to be in an area that has 5 G and have a 5G – enabled phone plan to take advantage of the next – gen network.

Kirin 990 5 G chip, as the name implies, now provides support for 5 G networks, which are just entering the market.

Who needs fancy 5 G and a desktop in your pocket when you can send a message as a talking bunny, though?

Those kinds of speeds could eliminate the need for cables and lead to the launch of a completely port – less phone.

Granted, you’ll need the GigaHome 650 Wi – Fi 6 + router and Huawei’s W650 chip to take advantage of it all, but it demonstrates the potential that these next – gen networks can bring to future Android phones.

#screen    #display    #edges    #curved   

In terms of display, the P40 Pro+ features a Quad – Curve Overflow Display, which boils down to a fancy term for describing screen curvature on the edges.

Samsung phones have long had Infinity displays with curved edges that slightly wrap the screen on the right and left sides of the phone, but the I quad – curve overflow display on the P40 Pro and P40 Pro+ takes it to a whole new level.

Basically, this is a new feature where the edges of the screen curve at the sides to give you a fuller viewing angle.

Here’s how Huawei describes it : 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.

#uses    #algorithm    #frame    #fusion   

This said, there is a noticeable loss of detail towards the edges of the frame in medium – range shots, caused by the image fusion algorithm.

For intermediate zoom factors, the P40 Pro uses a fusion algorithm that combines image data from both cameras, merging several RAW frames from the main and tele cameras into one high – resolution frame, which is then cropped for zooming.

For optimal detail, the 5x tele – cam records image data at the center of the frame; it uses AI – refined image data from the primary camera to fill in the missing image areas around the edges.

The camera uses the 50MP high – resolution sensor and an AI RAW – powered super – resolution algorithm to generate an image with a 54mm – equivalent focal length and very good detail rendering.

#apps    #Google    #store   

The phone doesn’t feature any of Google’s apps in the new Huawei App Gallery, including key apps such as Google Maps, Google Chrome, Google Photos, YouTube and so on.

That ban also means it doesn’t use Google apps — including access to the Google Play Store — but the phone does have 5 G and a good camera.

The P40 Pro may have a game – changing camera, but is that enough to draw in customers who are sceptical about the absence of Google apps?

The P40 Pro runs Huawei’s EMUI 10 skin and bundles a few substitutes to the familiar Google – made Android apps.

But after a while you will notice that the new branded AppGallery app store is on the first page, and there is no link to Google Play Store.

#waiting    #June    #want    #review   

Photography enthusiasts among you should consider waiting until that phone lands in June, or at least until we ‘ve given it our review treatment.

But that phone doesn’t go on sale until sometime in June, so we’re yet to see how it really stacks up.

What I will say though, is that it’s a great phone for anybody who wants to step away from Google and Apple.

This could change in the future, but, as of now, it doesn’t deliver the premium experience I ‘d want from a phone in this range.

But if you’re keen on photography then it’s at least worth waiting to see what the phone is like before potentially investing too soon and being disappointed.

#taken    #life    #fact   

In fact, they’re so bright that some may take issue with the fact that they’re not very not true to life.

Indeed, the photographs were impressive and I was really taken aback by how well – defined the images were even with the phone’s unrivalled optical zoom.

Often, it seems to tint images with more of a magenta hue than what was present in real life, which made various test shots from the phone look less natural than the same shots taken on the iPhone 11 Pro or Galaxy S20 Ultra.

The lighting in photos taken at night was spectacular, and I don’t think I would have been able to tell this was taken on a smartphone.

#zoom    #recording    #playing    #video   

When zooming, the Huawei camera is capable of recording higher levels of detail than competing devices at all zoom ranges while keeping image noise well under control.

The telephoto lens features a periscoping mechanism that offers 5X optical zoom ( read as : an actual real zoom ) along with 10X hybrid zoom and an insane 50X digital zoom.

The phone also has an audio zoom feature, which enables users to zoom in on sounds and record them at a louder volume.

They both come in at around 18 – 20 hours of video playing, and 80 – 90 hours of audio playback or call time.

For instance, if you see a busker on a busy street, you can zoom in on them and focus the audio recording on whatever music they are playing.

 

Huawei P40 Pro Review Part 3

#screen    #display    #curved   

The P40 Pro comes with a Quad – curve Overflow Display, which offers curved glass at all four edges, although the display does not lead up to the curves on top and bottom.

The sides of the phone are curved so that the screen melts around the edges, and this extends to the top and bottom of the P40 Pro called ‘quad curve overflow display ‘.

The OLED wraps itself around all sides of the P40 Pro, which means that it is even more curved than the previous ones HUAWEI display.

Huawei has also moved the fingerprint sensor higher up in the screen based on user feedback, and this works really well.

With the OLED display, you can use the always – on screen mode by choosing between the various skins for the watch.

#April    #order   

Back in April, Huawei unveiled its H1 2020 flagships in the form of Huawei P40, P40 Pro, and the ultra – premium Huawei P40 Pro+. 7

The Huawei P40 Pro is available for pre – orders in the UAE on April 2 and will be available for retail on April 9.

Huawei has stacked up the internals on the P40 Pro and is going all – in on 5 G with Pro models.

The iPhone 11 Pro is still unmatched, but the HUAWEI P40 Pro is on top of all but the Oppo Find X2 Pro with Snapdragon 865 although the difference between HUAWEI and Oppo is rather subtle.

Everyone who chooses HUAWEI P40 Pro will also receive 3 months free of Huawei Music, the company’s new music streaming platform.

I make no secret of my love for a good telephoto zoom lens, and Huawei has improved the 5x hybrid zoom even further.

The differences between the P40 Pro camera and the one on the P30 Pro are not huge, but the differences in using the P30 Pro and the P40 Pro are staggering.

That said, its big brother, the P40 Pro Plus, is even more photography – focused, with the first 10x optical zoom seen on a phone.

The P40 Pro’s telephoto lens has a 5X magnification and a 10X hybrid zoom ( which combines digital and optical zooms ) and 50X times digital zoom ( which is, not surprisingly, super grainy ).

What we can consider is that HUAWEI P40 Pro excels in synthetic benchmarks and therefore a significant advantage in real life.

#year   

Huawei’s P series phones are built around photography – and in recent years, the company has set the bar pretty high for the competition.

Last year in the P30 Pro, Huawei, Sony, and Leica teamed up for a different type of sensor that notably improved performance, and allowed the phone to do some rather cool things with low – light, achieving what we thought was the best camera of any phone all year.

My first thoughts on the design of the phone is that Huawei has done a good job to keep it fairly similar to last years model.

The P40 Pro could arguably be the best smartphone that Huawei has produced to date and Huawei must be applauded for bringing camera tech several notches up over the last few years to this point.

#Clone    #need    #update   

Huawei told Pickr that subsequent uses of Phone Clone would just write the new app over to phone, so every time there’s an app update you want, you just need to update the other Android phone, run Phone Clone again, and bring it over.

In short, if you’re moving from any Android phone to the P40 Pro, you need Phone Clone to retain some sense of app sanity.

Huawei’s Phone Clone software lets you transfer your data from your old phone to your new phone, including your apps – even if they’re not available in AppGallery.

However to get around this Huawei has its own Phone Clone app, which allows users to simply copy apps and data from other devices.

It’s like someone telling you to buy a new phone, and then also telling you to keep your old phone, because you’ll need the old phone to use the new phone.

#Google    #Store  

But any other apps such as most Australian weather apps, Citymapper, the NSW Opal card app, UberEats, Telstra account app and my banking apps were noticeably absent.

That ban also means it doesn’t use Google apps — including access to the Google Play Store — but the phone does have 5 G and a good camera.

Very much like the Huawei Mate 30 Pro, the P40 Pro is set to ship without Google Play Services or the Google Play Store out of the box.

It still looks like Android, much like it did on the Mate 30 Pro, but it just won’t run the Google Play Store or any of the Google apps and services.

You can even get some Google apps to work, such as Google Maps, Chrome and the Android TV version of YouTube.

#Mate    #notch    #punch   

The ‘dewdrop’ notch on the P30 Pro has now moved towards a double punch – hole in the left corner of the P40 Pro.

As on Mate 30 Pro, the photos in the classic 3 : 2 ratio compared to the usual 4 : 3.

A result in line with most of the Samsung OLEDs even if slightly lower than what we have achieved with Mate 20 Pro and P30 Pro.

Unlike the Mate 30 Pro, Huawei has kept with proper physical buttons, which makes the phone easier to use, though there’s an impossibly large selfie camera spot in the top left.

Wider wearable use is one of them, as is a less ugly front – facing camera and selfie notch, as this one is just plain awkward making the hole – punch design somehow even heavier and more obtrusive.

#sensor    #mm    #lens    #MP   

They consist of a 50 MP wide – angle ( 23 mm ) lens, a 40 MP ultra – wide – angle ( 18 mm ) and a 12 MP telephoto ( 240 mm ).

There is a 50MP wide angle camera, A goal Ultra Wide Angle, a Telephoto lens with periscope sensor with 5x zoom and a sensor ToF for depth.

By default, the camera produces 12.5 MP shots with a declared focal length of 27 mm, different than the advertised nominal 23 mm focal length that the camera should have.

Meanwhile, the front camera is no slouch either, supporting two cameras, with a 32 megapixel F2.2 camera, plus a depth sensor, as well.

The sensor is physically larger for example than the 1 / 1.33 108 MP sensor of the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra.

#G    #network    #testing    #speeds    #lockdown   

In fact, in our testing in Sydney on the Telstra 5 G network, we found speeds hit 1Gbps, but would more commonly sit around 150 to 300Mbps in our tests.

You’ll need to be in an area that has 5 G and have a 5G – enabled phone plan to take advantage of the next – gen network.

That’s not too shabby at all, and it’s worth noting that the P40 Pro will default back to 4 G when 5 G isn’t found, so even if your network isn’t 5 G ready where you are, you should see fast speeds regardless.

At least the slowdowns shouldn’t be a problem if you’re on a 5 G network, with some fast mobile performance on offer.

#G    #Kirin    #core    #GB    #processor   

It uses the Huawei Kirin 990 5 G CPU, which is an octa – core processor, with its fastest cores running up to 2.86 GHz.

The GPU instead is the 16-core Mali – G76 that is the same that we also find on Kirin 990 ( not 5 G ).

It has the chipset Kirin 990 5 G, which is nothing but an even faster processor than the normal Kirin 990 non 5 G presented and inserted in the Mate 30 Pro.

Technically, Kirin 990 5 G has an Octa – Core processor with a familiar set of Cortex CPUs ie 2 Cortex – A76 + 2 Cortex – A76 + 4 Cortex – A55.

Inside that metal and glass design, you’ll find Huawei’s own processor handling the system alongside a fairly generous amount of memory, with the Kirin 990 5 G eight – core chip paired with 8 GB RAM and 256 GB storage.

#della    #anche    #durante    #sono    #e   

Gli scatti della fotocamera ultrawide sono altrettanto buoni come quelli dell’obiettivo principale : nitidi, dettagliati e senza rumore con colori che non sono sbiaditi.

Lo smartphone puo durare anche 15 ore continuative durante la navigazione Web o piu di 18 ore durante la riproduzione di video.

Il P40 Pro ha 3 microfoni e oltre alla cattura del suono stereo ( 192kbps ), la videocamera supporta anche lo zoom audio : quando si ingrandisce il video anche l’audio si intensifica.

Come detto abbiamo possibilita di utilizzare lo zoom 5x da 12 MP in maniera ottica e i risultati sono a dir poco brillanti.

Molto interessante il supporto della ricarica intelligente per il HUAWEI P40 Pro : se si aggancia il device durante la notte verso il termine della ricarica questa tendera ad abbassarsi completando la ricarica appena prima dell’alba.

 

Huawei P40 Pro Specifications Part 4

#Kirin    #chipset    #G    #powered    #core   

The Kirin 990 5 G integrates its 5 G modem right into the chipset, which leads to greater power efficiency compared to Qualcomm’s 5 G discrete modem.

Both the smartphones are powered by the latest Kirin 990 5 G chipset and also come with Wi – Fi 6 Plus support via the new Kirin W650 chip inside.

It uses the Huawei Kirin 990 5 G CPU, which is an octa – core processor, with its fastest cores running up to 2.86 GHz.

Powering the device will be a 1.71GHz octa – core Hisilicon chipset, which will be paired with 4 GB of RAM.

There isn’t doubt with the chipset that would be found with the Huawei P40 Pro, as it will sport the brand’s latest and the flagship chipset for 2020, the Kirin 990 5G.

#Pro    #series    #smartphone   

Huawei announced the three new smartphones as part of the P40 series, these include the Huawei P40, the Huawei P40 Pro and Huawei P40 Pro+.

The series had three 5 G supporting phones – the Huawei P40, Huawei P40 Pro, and the Huawei P40 Pro Plus.

Huawei appears to be gearing up for the launch of its upcoming flagship series of smartphones, dubbed the Huawei P40 and the Huawei P40 Pro.

The lineup includes the Huawei P40, Huawei P40 Pro, and the Huawei P40 Pro+ carrying three, four, and five Leica camera sensors at the back, respectively.

Most of the specifications of the Huawei P40 Pro Plus are similar to the Huawei P40 Pro except for a few differences.

You can also pre – order the Huawei P40 and Huawei P40 Pro from Globe on April 25 to May 2, 2020.

#GB    #storage    #RAM    #memory    #data   

The phone is available in two storage variants which include 8 GB RAM + 512 GB storage is priced at 8,888 Yuan, while the 8 GB RAM + 256 GB storage variant is priced at 7,988 Yuan.

The Huawei P40 Pro has 8 GB of RAM with 256 internal storage while the Huawei P40 Pro+ has 8 GB of RAM with 512 GB of internal storage.

Spec heads might be disappointed with 8 GB of RAM when there are phones with 12 and 16 GB of RAM out there.

Random – access memory ( RAM ) is a form of volatile memory used to store working data and machine code currently in use.

The report highlights that the Huawei P40 and Huawei P40 Pro will come with 8 GB RAM and 256 GB of internal storage.

#camera    #lens    #zoom    #sensor   

The Huawei P40 features a triple rear – camera setup carrying a 50MP primary camera clubbed with a 16MP ultra wide lens and 8MP 3x optical lens.

Huawei calls it an Ultra Vision Leica Penta Camera, and it’s comprised of five camera sensors and a color temperature sensor with eight color channels.

On the Huawei P40 there will be a Leica Ultra Vision triple camera set – up with a 50-megapixel primary camera next to a 16-megapixel lens and an 8-megapixel lens.

As for the cameras, the Huawei P40 comes with a triple camera setup at the back, which includes an 8-megapixel 3x optical telephoto lens, a 50-megapixel ultra – vision – wide camera and a 16-megapixel ultra – wide lens.

#charging    #battery    #wireless    #support    #minutes   

The smartphone is fueled by a Non – removable Li – Po 5500 mAh battery + Fast Battery charging 50W + Fast wireless charging 27W + Power bank / Reverse wireless charging.

The Huawei P40 Pro’s battery can support 40W wired fast charging while the Huawei P40 Pro+’s battery can support 40W super – fast wireless charging.

In terms of battery capacity, it is rumoured to sport a 5,500mAh battery and come with support for Huawei’s latest Fast Wired and Wireless charging, will miss out on the 3.5 mm headphone jack, and have IP68 Dust and Water Resistance.

The two support Huawei’s latest fast – charging technology that can output 40 watts of power, but the Plus edition currently has the fastest wireless – charging speeds out there in a phone at 40 watts.

#display    #screen    #resolution    #refresh    #curved   

The Huawei P40 Premium edition comes loaded with a 6.7-inch OLED display with a screen resolution of 3160 x 1440 pixels along with 120Hz refresh rate.

The Huawei P40 features a 6.1-inch screen with 2340×1080 pixels resolution whereas the P40 Pro and the P40 Pro+ feature a 6.58-inch display with 2640×1200 pixels resolution.

The display also has a 90Hz refresh rate, which means the images on the screen refresh almost triple the speed of a standard smartphone, making all your games and content look silky smooth on your screen.

It’s thought the P40 will have a flat display, while the P40 Pro will have a curved screen, not dissimilar to the current Mate 30 Pro with its waterfall display.

The Pro features a larger display at 6.58-inches and sports a 2640×1200 resolution with a 90Hz refresh rate with support for HDR10 too.

#score    #tests    #image    #mode   

The Photo score is calculated from sub – scores in tests that examine different aspects of a device’s performance for still images under different lighting conditions.

The Huawei P40 Pro achieves a Photo score of 140 points, making it the best device for still images to date.

The Huawei P40 Pro controls all kinds of image artifacts very well and deservedly achieves a very high score for this category.

This also means that the P40 Pro omits Huawei’s staple Super Macro mode, which utilized the 20MP ultra – wide camera.

Video artifacts are controlled very well and the Huawei achieves one of the best scores we have seen for this attribute.

About DXOMARK Camera tests : For scoring and analysis in our smartphone camera reviews, DXOMARK engineers capture and evaluate over 1600 test images and more than 2 hours of video both in controlled lab environments and in natural indoor and outdoor scenes, using the camera’s default settings.

#Google    #Services    #Pro    #Store   

It may be Android, but remember that Google Play Services, the Google Play Store, and most Google apps are not available.

However, they lack Google Play services and in exchange bring the new Huawei App Gallery loaded with tons of new apps and games.

The P40 Pro runs Huawei’s EMUI 10 skin and bundles a few substitutes to the familiar Google – made Android apps.

You can even get some Google apps to work, such as Google Maps, Chrome and the Android TV version of YouTube.

This new range of smartphones will run Huawei Mobile Services ( HMS ) instead of Google Mobile Services ( GMS ) on the Android 10 operating system.

As the trade issues between the U.S. government and Huawei are continuing, it’s hard to believe the P40 and P40 Pro will be able to include Google Mobile Services such as Gmail, Google Maps, YouTube and Play Store.

#device    #phone    #transfer    #Clone   

We were concerned about the AppGallery not yet having the FNB mobile app, but using phone clone easily transferred the FNB app to the Huawei device.

However to get around this Huawei has its own Phone Clone app, which allows users to simply copy apps and data from other devices.

Huawei’s Phone Clone software lets you transfer your data from your old phone to your new phone, including your apps – even if they’re not available in AppGallery.

If you’re switching from an Android device to your new P40, all you got ta do is clone your old device onto the new one using an app called Phone Clone.

This method will allow you to physically copy all the content ( including apps ) from the previous phone to your Huawei device.
