Huawei, which has long been out of order with Google, introduced the first flagship Huawei P40 in 2020. Like the Huawei Mate 30 family, which was launched in 2019, the P40 came without Google apps. Despite this, the technical capacity of the device and especially the camera fill the eyes.
In the relationship between Google and Huawei, determined by the commercial tensions between the USA and China, the waters are not stopped. Huawei is launching its devices without getting Google support due to conflicts, mutual challenges and sanctions between the two countries while they are on track.After the Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro,which debuted in2019, the Huawei P40 also started its journey with a major minus.
Organizing an event with no participants due to the coronavirus outbreak, Huawei unveiled the new flagship Huawei P40 with a launch online. Huawei P40, the starting model of the new series with three models in total, proves to be the flagship level with its features and price. Meanwhile, Huawei officially introducedthe P40 Pro and
P40 Pro Plus models,which are higher-end models along with the P40.
The first point of the Huawei P40 to be emphasized in terms of design should be the rear camera module. The rectangular module, which we see in Samsung Galaxy S20 models this year, is also used in Huawei P40. Thus,we see that we are transitioning to
a new standard for Android manufacturers.
On the front of the Huawei P40, the front cameras located in the upper left corner of the screen draw our attention.If you remember, the front camera of the Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus had a similar design, but it was in the top right corner of the screen, not the left.It is clear that the Huawei P40 gets its design contours from various
Samsung devices.It combines the front and back surfaces of the phone with a metal frame.Huawei P40 does not bring a lot of innovation in terms of general design features.
The Huawei P40 has a main panel with 6.58-inch Full HD OLED in a 19.5: 9 aspect ratioand a display at 60 Hz refresh rate.It also offers 1080 x 2340 pixels resolution and 422 ppi density.The edges of the screen that will meet today's needs are not curved compared to P40 Pro and P40 Pro Plus, but have a flatter structure.
Hardware and performance:
The Huawei P40comeswith the Kirin 990 processor chip, which has a 7-nanometer architecture, just like other members of the family.There are 4 ARM Cortex-A76 cores in this chip, 2 of them are 2.86 GHz and 2 of them are 2.36 GHz.There are also 4 ARM Cortex-A55 cores that complete the core count to 8 and are responsible for low performance tasks at a speed of 1.95 GHz.
This graphics unit is sufficient for today's most advanced games, probably in a position to work comfortably for a few more years.In terms of performance, the Huawei P40 closely follows the highest standards of 2020.
Huawei introduced the P40 familywith the slogan “Visionary Photography”.
It's nice to see Huawei, which has been differentiated with its cameras since P9 in the smartphone world, continues on this line again with the P40.Although the flagships P30 and Mate 30 of last year have provided high but unrealistic promises, the P40 still looks good enough to excite.
Featuring a main rear camera with f / 1.9 aperture at 50 MP resolution, the Huawei P40 is able to take wide-angle shots with this main sensor.The secondary camera of the device is a 8 MP resolution telephoto camera capable of 3x optical zoom.The resolution of the ultra wide-angle camera that accompanies this duo is 16 MP.
The first two cameras have an optical image stabilizer, while the ultra-wide-angle camera has no stabilizer.It's hard to talk about video shooting performances of rear cameras without testing. According to the information announced by Huawei, it seems possible to shoot 2K and Full HD video recordings in 30 and 60 frames.
On the front of the Huawei P40 is a wide-angle main camera with 32 MP resolution,
f / 2.2 aperture.This time, we see that the Chinese company gives more weight to the front camera in the starting model.
