Huawei's New Flagship Smartphone

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Huawei has announced its new flagship P40, P40 Pro and P40 Pro+ handsets. These devices do not come with GMS and any google suite of apps, instead relying on Huawei's App Gallery. These new flagship devices contain the HiSilicon Kirin 990 5G chipset which directly compete against the Snapdragon 865 mobile processor and the X55 5G modem combination. Huawei's SoC design incorporates the 5G modem inside of the SoC unlike Qualcomm's design which means that all of the P40 lineup contains the same 5G modem supporting the same 5G bands unlike the Galaxy S20 lineup. They claim this design is much more power efficient than Qualcomm's design. The P40 supports a 50MP main camera, 8MP 3x optical zoom telephoto lens and 16 MP wide angle lens. The P40 Pro doesn't include the 3X telephoto lens favouring a 12MP 5X optical zoom periscope lens. The P40 Pro+ bumps up the optical zoom capacity of its little brother to up to 10X optical zoom from its 8MP periscope lens. Both Pro devices contain a 40MP wide angle camera.  Perhaps the most distinguishing features of the P40 Pro which has had a hands on by MKBHD is the perplexing display. It is 6.5 inch OLED display with a resolution of 2640x1200 and that display is shared with the Pro+. It has an out of the box refresh rate of 90Hz but the most confusing aspect is the screen curvature which curves from the left and right side, not as dramatic as the P30, and curves from the top and bottom but not the corners which disrupt the "water flow"design Huawei was going for. The Pro+ also contains 40W wireless charging which is neat but good luck trying to find a charger that supports the wattage. Pretty confusing lineup and without the inclusion of GMS very hard to recommend. Full overview at this Anandtech article and this video by MKBHD.

That used to be the case but the P phones are now flagship. Think of it like how OnePlus has 2 flagship devices that release during different dates ie. OnePlus 7 Pro and OnePlus 7T Pro.

Thought mate was hardware flagship and P was photo. Both are crap like but aye well. Lack of the play store and likely timely android updates should bury this part of china’s intelligence network in the west.

Yeah, the P series always bring some good improvements in camera quality

The best Huawei can do now is let people install custom ROMs on new phones to use Play Store and such, they will sink down otherwise...

They’ll stay around though they make enough in china to cover any losses in the rest of the world
