Huawei P40 Review and Specifications

(Huawei P40 Review)

About Huawei P40:

The flagship line of smartphones P-series from Huawei is traditionally in great demand around the world. Devices for several generations have established themselves, first of all, as advanced camera phones with maximum performance.

But it is worth considering that the P40 and P40 Pro are phones without Google services, and you will have to look for applications in your own Huawei AppGallery store, which is not very popular so far. How many buyers will endure this annoying inconvenience for a lot of money?

Huawei P40 Review: Release Date and Prices:

Huawei P40, P40 Pro, and P40 Pro + were introduced on March 26. In 2020, the company quite understandably showed new products online. Pre-order buyers around the world, including in the world, will be able to from April 2.

Huawei P40 and P40 Pro will go on sale on April 10. The lack of Google-services, considered in Huawei, is no reason to dump the flagships. So, the Huawei P40 will cost the world buyer at the start of sales 50 thousand rubles, and the older P40 Pro is already 70 thousand rubles.

However, it should be noted that the Chinese are going to sell smartphones in the Russian market much cheaper than in Europe. There they will cost 800 and 1200 euros (68 and 102 thousand rubles at the exchange rate on March 27, 2020), respectively.

Ceramic P40 Pro + is unlikely to reach Russia, but in the EU countries, they will ask for 1,400 euros (119 thousand rubles).

Screen Review:

Traditionally, the P40 and P40 Pro received screens of different sizes and resolutions. The first uses a 6.1-inch panel with 1080 x 2340 pixels, the second uses 6.58 inches and 1200 x 2640 pixels.

Both matrices are made using OLED technology and are able to update the picture at 90 Hz. Also, an optical fingerprint scanner is built into the screen, according to Huawei, its speed and scanning area increased by a third.

By the way, if the Huawei P40 display glass is relatively flat, then in the P40 the side edges go to the frame of the case.

Housing Review:

In 2020, Huawei designers were unable to get past the massive black rectangle into which many manufacturers entered the main camera unit.

But this is not all – now the front cameras are embedded in the screen, and are not made in the form of a “drop”, as was the case with the 2019 models.

The cases of both smartphones are made according to the scheme “glass-metal-glass.” However, with their sizes, the P40 and P40 Pro came out quite light – 175 and 209.

The big difference between the older model is the protection against dust and water.

In the IP68 class, while the “fortieth” can easily transfer splashes (IP53).

Huawei P40 Review about CPU, Memory, Communications:

The heart of smartphones has become Huawei’s most productive chipset in the first half of 2020 – HiSilicon Kirin 990 5G. As the names can understand, the 8-core processor provides support for work in fifth-generation mobile networks (where they are running, of course).

For some reason, they regretted the memory of their flagship in Huawei. At a time when 10-12 GB of operational and up to 1 TB constant became the norm among competitors.

The P40 costs 8/128 GB, and the P40 Pro – 8/256 GB.

Only in the expensive “plus” offer a 512 GB drive. But there is a memory card, but exotic NM format – these are not easy to find on sale. Depending on the market, smartphones will come with support for one or two SIM cards.
