Huawei unveiled its P40 Series: the P40, the P40 Pro and the P40 Pro+ back in March 2020. Due to the pandemic, the launch event was held online. And just like the P30 series, Huawei continued to pull out all the stops for its cameras. While all three phones have their differences, they are mostly the same. They are all powered by Huawei’s own flagship Kirin 990 5G processor. They all have beautiful OLED displays with a pill-shaped cut-out at the top left.
The area where they do differ a lot is in the camera department. All of them sports a 50MP main and a 32MP selfie shooter. But that is where the similarities end. The P40 has a triple camera setup, with an 8MP telephoto with 3x optical zoom and a 16MP ultrawide. The P40 Pro gets a 12 MP telephoto with 5x optical zoom and a 40MP ultrawide. It also adds a ToF (Time of Flight) camera. The P40 Pro+ has the same camera setup as of the P40 Pro but adds another telephoto lens and has 10x optical zoom.
All these phones run Huawei’s EMUI 10 built on top of Android 10. But due to US sanctions, these phones have no access to Google Play Services. But Huwaei has continued to work on its software. The P40 series comes loaded with Celia, Huawei’s answer to Siri and Alexa.
And looks like they are continuing to improve on their software. They are releasing the new July 2020 Android Security Patch fro their P40, P40 Pro and P40 Pro+ devices. EMUI 10.1.0.150 not only brings in the latest July update but also has some fixes. It improves smart screen recognition in some scenarios.
