Huawei’s P40 line models are quite popular. They are not only considered to be the best smartphones in terms of photo capture but they also make a tough competition to other top brands in terms of performance. However, the highest model, the Huawei P40 Pro+ was a bit ignored. We mean every time when talking about this series, the standard version and the Pro variant are recalled. But no one talks about the power our protagonist carries inside. And today, the company officially announced the phone went on sale this morning. The 8GB+256GB version is priced at 7988 yuan ($1128), while the 8GB+512GB version is priced at 8888 yuan ($1255). You can choose any from the ceramic black and ceramic white options.

As said, the Huawei P40 Pro+ is a monster. But among all high-end features, we have to mention the camera first. The Huawei P40 Pro+ (Premium Edition) features a penta-rear camera. It consists of a 52MP (IMX700, 1 / 1.28-inch RYYB) + 40MP (IMX650 1 / 1.5-inch, RGGB) + 8MP telephoto lens + 20MP periscope lens and ToF. The camera also supports a 10x lossless zoom. It has a color temperature sensor and a LED flash. The P40 Pro+ has short-range, mid-range, and long-range versatility. It supports 3X optical zoom and 10X optical zoom. The source also pointed out DXOMARK has already scheduled the review of this handset.
Apart from this, the Huawei P40 Pro+ uses a 3D face unlocking solution just like the Mate 30 Pro. Simply put, the camera is safe enough for financial authentication.
Huawei P40 Pro+ Hardware
In terms of design, the Huawei P40 Pro+ looks almost identical to other two models. They all have rectangular camera modules positioned in the top left corner on the back. Plus, they all have a hole-punch screen. The front-facing camera is placed in the top left. The selfie shooter has a 32MP resolution and it also has an IR depth sensor.
The Pro and Pro+ have 90Hz displays known as an ‘Overflow display’. However, there is a reason to call in this way – the edges of the display are curved on all four sides, creating a very smooth transition anywhere you touch. This also increases the usable area of the display. Although it is far from the ‘waterfall’ display of the Mate 30 Pro. The Huawei P40 Pro+ sports a 6.58-inch display.
The P40 series hosts a Kirin 990 5G SoC. At the same time, the P40 Pro+ has a 4 layer SuperCool system, 3D graphene film, and a super-thin Vapor Chamber cooling system. Its battery capacity is 4,200mAh, and it supports a 40W wired charging.
