Huawei P40 Pro+

Huawei has officially announced its latest flagship P40 series with three smartphones – Huawei P40, Huawei P40 Pro, and Huawei P40 Pro+ in an event, broadcast live on YouTube.

Despite having a powerful system inside, the P40 trio focuses on photography with the tagline “visionary photography” that indeed has a lot to offer. The Huawei P40 offers a 50MP main, 16MP ultra-wide-angle, and an 8MP telephoto, triple rear camera setup and a 32MP front camera.

The three cameras come with respective f/1.9, f/1.8, and f/3.4 aperture lens, however, the main and telephoto units also feature optical image stabilization. Overall, the camera setup supports both the OIS and AIS (AI stabilization).

Both of them have the aid of OIS with one of them featuring an f/2.4 aperture lens with 3x optical zoom, while the other one has a 10x optical zoom with f/4.4 lens aperture.
