Huawei is pushing the boundaries of mobile photography again with the new HUAWEI P40 series with three variants for the new series. There’s the P40 with a triple camera system, P40 Pro with quad camera system and P40 Pro+ with a five-camera system which has 3x optical zoom camera and 10x optical zoom camera. And of cause it will still be a using a camera system co-developed with LEICA. Pricing & availability is at the end of this post.

Although Huawei is not the first to have a five-camera system on a smartphone, because Nokia 9 PureView had that in 2019. But Huawei is offering a 10x optical zoom via a brand new periscope lens with a RYYB colour filter array that boost light intake for improved quality of zoomed shots. With the addition of 10 digital zooming, this will be Huawei’s first 100x SuperZoom Array which will be exclusive to HUAWEI P40 Pro+.

HUAWEI P40 series will have 32MP Selfie camera


If you do not require that much zooming, the P40 Pro will still offer 50x SuperSensing Zoom in their quad camera system. Both P40 Pro & P40 Pro+ will also offer 32MP front selfie camera with depth camera for better bokeh shots with your selfies. The P40 will only have 32MP front camera without the depth camera.

Measuring 1/1.28 inches diagonally, it supports pixel binning to achieve a pixel size of 2.44μm and Octa PD AutoFocus for high-speed focus at any time of day, while HUAWEI XD Fusion Engine leverages AI to boost detail reproduction across every possible lighting condition.

Pixels on this sensor can be individually adjusted to capture with long, short or normal exposure for hardware-based HDR videos.
