The top-of-the-line Huawei P40 series smartphone, the P40 Pro+, now has a release date in the UK and a price. You might want to sit down for the latter….
The flagship phone will be on sale from June 25th at a retail price of £1299, although that will come with a bundle of a Huawei Watch GT2 (46mm) and 40W SuperCharge Wireless Charger Stand.
The P40 Pro+ sports an industry-leading 1/1.28-inch RYYB image sensor that uses pixel binning to effectively have a pixel size of 2.44μm. It is also the first sensor to support Full Pixel Octa PD Auto-Focus.
The P40 Pro+ is also the first phone to have two individual telephoto cameras, for 3x and 10x optical zoom – offering a total zoom of 100x.
Golden Snap includes AI Best Moment (to pick the best shot from a moving picture), AI Remove Passerby and AI Remove Reflection to do exactly what their names suggest.
“The Huawei P40 Pro+ continues the P Series’ heritage of imaging excellence, thanks to the unique Huawei Ultra Vision Sensor, SuperZoom Array and pro-level cinematic features. The handset also brings ultra-fast speed to consumers with the high-performance Kirin 990 5G Chipset, to connect people and the world around them instantly.”Anson Zhang, Huawei UK Consumer Business Group MD
On the video side, the P40 Pro+ 40-megapixel ultra-wide camera has ISO 51200 light sensitivity to offer excellent low-light video recording, while the phone has a 32-megapixel selfie camera with ToF sensor to make the perfect bokeh photos.
Other features include 7680fps slow motion video, real-time bokeh for video and 4K time-lapse. There’s also directional audio recording.
The phone comes with 5G and a tiny bezel quad-curve overflow display with 90Hz. Wi-Fi 6+ supports a local wireless connection of 2400Mbps.
Two colours are available; Ceramic White or Ceramic Black, each featuring a nano-tech ceramic back panel that is polished.
As with other P40 series handsets, the P40 Pro+ lacks access to Google Mobile Services, but comes with Huawei’s own AppGallery and access to other app stores, such as Amazon.
The new Petal Search will help users find the apps they need with the least effort.
