Huawei has just revealed three new models for the P40 lineup through an online event. These handsets are armed with hardware that mainly focus on mobile photography and carry premium features to rival today’s flagship phones. Check out our specs and price comparison for the three variants and see which model could best suit your needs.
One of the main deciding factors, if you’re to choose between these three, is camera capabilities. The top-of-the-line P40 Pro Plus is equipped with two optical zoom cameras with up to 10x optical zoom. The P40 Pro has up to 5x optical zoom, and the base P40 goes up to 3x optical zoom.
Another difference lies in the build quality of its back. While both the P40 and P40 Pro come in Gorilla Glass protection, the P40 Pro Plus takes it a step further and goes for ceramic which is said to be as strong as sapphire.
In terms of similarities, the mid-tier P40 Pro shares the same specs as the P40 Pro Plus in display, front camera, battery size, among others. All three variants also run on the same Kirin 990 processor — a step up from the previous P30 Pro’s Kirin 980 CPU.
Apart from those specs, the new P40 series comes with Celia. Celia is your new voice assistant similar to Apple’s Siri or Amazon’s Alexa. And yes, you can call it by saying, “Hey Celia.” You can then ask it to make calls, set reminders, and perform tasks that voice assistants commonly do.
Pricing for the P40 series are as follows. The P40 and P40 Pro will be available globally come April 7, while the P40 Pro Plus will be up for grabs in June 2020.
