Huawei P40 Pro+ arrives with a 10X Optical Zoom camera

Alongside the Huawei P40 & Huawei P40 Pro, the company also launched a third flagship named the Huawei P40 Pro+. As the name shows, it is the most expensive among the three & hence comes with the most features. Perhaps the biggest upgrades over the P40 Pro are the 10X Optical Zoom camera & the 40W Fast Wireless Charging, both of which are impressive.


While the Huawei P40 & P40 feature a lot of colours & a premium-looking metal & glass build, the Huawei P40 Pro+ takes the design one step ahead as there is a Ceramic Build. Huawei says the Ceramic used is as tough as Sapphire, so that’s a pretty bold claim. Moreover, the colour options are limited to just two, but they are the classic Black & White.

Apart from this, there isn’t much difference in the design when you compare the P40 Pro & P40 Pro+.

Just like the Huawei P40 Pro, the P40 Pro+ has a 6.58-inch Quad-Curve OLED display on the front with 90Hz refresh rate & 2640 x 1200 Pixels resolution. The SOC is also the same, i.e., Kirin 990 5G. There is 8GB RAM paired with 512GB storage.

Coming to the cameras now, the Huawei P40 Pro+ has a Penta-lens camera setup on the rear. There is a primary 50 Megapixel Ultra Vision camera with a 1/1.28″ sensor, OIS & f/1.9 aperture lens. The secondary camera is a 40 Megapixel ultra-wide-angle Cine Camera with f/1.8 aperture & 1/1.54-inch large sensor. There is a third 8 Megapixel telephoto lens with OIS & 3X Optical Zoom and a fourth 3D Depth Sensing Camera.

Finally, there is the star of the show, the 8 Megapixel SuperZoom Telephoto camera with 10X Optical Zoom and OIS. It is the longest lens on any smartphone with a focal length of 240mm. The multi-reflection periscope telephoto lens creates 5 times the light refraction and a 178% increased optical path to achieve Max Zoom up to 100x.

The dual-camera setup on the front is the same as the Huawei P40 Pro i.e., a 32MP camera paired with an IR Camera.

There is IP68 rating as well & the phone has a 4,200mAh battery with 40W Huawei SuperCharge and an impressive 40W Wireless HUAWEI SuperCharge. EMUI 10.1 runs out of the box based on Android 10.


Finally coming to the pricing, the Huawei P40 Pro+ comes in Ceramic Black & Ceramic White colours. The price is €1,399, and the phone would be available from June 2020.
