The Huawei P40 Pro continues to revolutionise mobile photography

Huawei launched its new range of flagship phones in South Africa: The P40 and P40 lite were launched in May, followed by the P40 Pro on 1 June 2020.

The P-Series is known for its groundbreaking camera performance and Huawei’s latest P40 Pro is no different. It’s easily the most impressive smartphone camera currently on the market.

The P40 Pro shows innovation in mobile photography, from improved zoom functionality and AI algorithms to better picture and video quality than its predecessors.

Huawei P40 Pro camera specifications

Main camera lenses

The Huawei P40 Pro has an impressive Ultra Vision Leica Quad Camera, which includes an UltraWide 40MP Cine Camera, a 50MP Ultra Vision Camera, a 12 MP 5x Optical Telephoto Camera and ToF (time-of-flight) sensor.

The Optical Telephoto Camera, which is equipped with the same RYYB CFA as my beloved Huawei P30 Pro, produces exceptional images, even in sub-optimal light conditions.

It also means lossless imaging when zooming, as the RYYB CFA allows up to 40% more light to be absorbed by the sensor. The P40 Pro is the first device with enhanced image quality on zoomed shots.

In addition, the P40 Pro’s AI Image Stabilisation (AIS) technology works with the Optical Telephoto Camera to mitigate shakes and jitters, especially when zooming in to capture that perfect shot.

Apart from the camera’s inner workings, the rectangular camera module also pushes the envelope with a pane of GDM-textured glass to highlight the camera’s mechanisms.

Selfie camera

The front Selfie Camera sports an impressive 32MP lens. The Huawei P40 Pro also features a 1/1.28-inch sensor – currently the largest CMOS sensor ever seen on a Huawei smartphone.

The larger the sensor, the greater the image quality, and the bigger the pixel, the greater its light-gathering capability. This translates into accurate colour and detailed tonal reproduction.

Other than its impressive lens, the front camera is also equipped with an IR Depth Camera and ambient light and proximity sensor for the ultimate depth-of-field effects.

AI integration

But wait, there’s more. The Huawei P40 Pro also unleashes the full potential of AI photography by processing images at a higher rate, making it ideal for taking photos of fast-moving subjects, such as children and pets.

The AI Best Moments feature uses artificial intelligence to capture the perfect shot, every single time. The AI analyses frames taken before, during and after the shutter button is pressed.

It then selects the best frames based on an extensive library of reference photos. The AI is also capable of collecting scene information during the shooting process to minimise glare and other unwanted interferences.

Battling to take night portraits in low-light conditions will be a thing of the past with Huawei’s Golden Snap feature enhanced by AI portrait algorithms to capture skin tones, textures and shadows accurately.

4K recording

Video buffs, this section is for you. According to Huawei, the P40 series’ Ultra Wide Cine Camera works “like a mini-movie camera that fits in your pocket” — in essence, capturing the magic of the silver screen wherever you go.

Huawei is revolutionising video-taking as well. Filming videos in sub-optimal light conditions can be a challenge, even when using a full range of professional equipment.

The P40 Pro’s Ultra Wide Cine Camera makes full use of the ISO 51200 light sensitivity to support ultra low-light video capture while SedecimPixel Fusion Technology enhances low-light performance.

If you’re serious about photography and using the latest in mobile technology to capture the best possible shots, you simply cannot go wrong with the Huawei P40 Pro.
