On the evening of March 26, Huawei’s 2020 first flagship machine P40 series officially met with everyone tonight through a unique online press conference in this extraordinary period.
“The ideal at the beginning of the establishment of the P series was to bring aesthetics and photography to consumers. It is both an artistic highland and a technological pinnacle. From the superior optical quality of Leica lenses and photosensitive elements to the future-leading chip and XD Fusion image engine, The P40 series has created an epoch-making opportunity with full-time, all-focus, ultra-clear images,” said Yu Chengdong, CEO of Huawei’s consumer business.
As one of Huawei’s flagship series, each generation of P-series phones is leading the industry’s photography trend-the P20 series has created a large-size sensor, and the P30 series has changed the dual rules of light sensitivity and zoom. Systematic upgrade. The P40 series impact system has a 1/1.28-inch ultra-large bottom sensor and a 2.44μm large unit pixel, which gathers an unimaginable amount of light; it also has an ingenious 10x pure optical zoom and a periscope lens system. No wonder Huawei’s terminal official Weibo announced the slogan “Witness the new standard for mobile imaging” at the March 10 preview press conference. At the same time, the powerful Kirin 990 5G SoC flagship chip, higher-speed 5G capability and Wi-Fi 6 Plus also endorse the excellent performance of the P40 series. In addition, the four-curved overflow screen of P40 Pro and Pro+ is full of tension to extend the field of vision, bringing the ultimate visual experience and smooth operation.
The P40 series will soon be launched in the global market. Among them, the overseas price of P40 (8GB+128GB) is 799 euros (C114 note: about RMB 6193), P40 Pro (8GB+256GB) is 999 euros (7743 yuan), and P40 Pro+ (8GB+512GB) is 1,399 euros (10844 yuan).
Precision imaging system: defining a new standard for moving imaging
In a light and slim square-inch body, the P40 series incorporates a sophisticated super-sensing Leica image multi-camera system, from three-camera, four-camera to five-camera, all in tacit collaboration. Users can experience the precise combination of the P40 ultra-wide-angle, wide-angle, and telephoto lenses; they can also enjoy the P40 Pro’s all-round enhanced super-sensitive film lens, 50x super-sensitive telephoto and 3D deep-sensing camera, and explore super-sensing Leica The ultimate evolution of four shots. The finale P40 Pro+ is equipped with a super-sensing Leica five-camera system. The binocular telephoto can achieve 10x pure optical zoom and 100x digital zoom.
The entire P40 series comes standard with Huawei’s largest 1/ 1.28-inch sensor and a large unit pixel size of 2.44μm to provide more light input. The full-pixel 8-core focus achieves fast and accurate focus day and night, and the XD Fusion image engine improves the picture quality to a new level. Through the powerful and extraordinary super-sensing sensor, it can truly reconstruct from the photosensitive area to the single pixel.
The P40 Pro can achieve 5x optical zoom, 10x hybrid zoom, and 50x digital zoom. At the same time, the RYYB filter array is used at the telephoto end to increase the amount of light and improve image quality. P40 Pro+ is equipped with a 100x binocular telephoto, an original 10x multi-reflection periscope telephoto structure, which extends the light path through 5 reflections, and the optical path is increased by 178% compared with the previous generation; and is added for super-sensing main camera and binocular telephoto OIS optical image stabilization realizes triple OIS+AIS intelligent image stabilization.
In order to reproduce delicate skin texture and real beauty, the P40 series has also added a multi-spectral color temperature sensor and AI AWB algorithm to improve color accuracy. Through the AI deep learning algorithm matrix, accurate portrait optimization can be achieved, making the facial light and shadow and hair history visible. The P40 Pro and P40 Pro+ are equipped with a front 32-megapixel main camera and an infrared depth-of-field camera, which can accurately focus on the face and present a moving effect of out-of-focus blur; the front and rear shooting effects form a unique portrait style.
The P40 series can realize AI airborne operation, sliding the screen and taking screenshots through gestures; it supports infrared face unlocking, which is convenient to use all day long. The P40 series has an AI wonderful moment function. You can select the fleeting moments through AI with a single tap in the dynamic photo editing of the gallery. At the same time, it supports AI passerby removal, AI reflection elimination, and easy customization of more perfect photos.
Good at both picture and sound quality: put the movie camera in your pocket
P40 Pro and P40 Pro+ newly added 40 million pixel super-sensitive film lens, with 1/1.54 inch super-large photosensitive element, 18mm equivalent super wide-angle field of view, and the same 3:2 golden ratio as a full-frame SLR. Thanks to the ability of each pixel to perform long, short, and normal exposure, it can shoot hardware-level HDR videos with a wide dynamic range; it can also aggregate 16 pixels into one 4.48μm super pixel to achieve ISO51200 sensitivity for mobile phone photography Degree, 7680fps ultra-high-speed photography.
P40 Pro and P40 Pro+ support video real-time blurring, which can truly simulate a large-aperture lens, focusing on the portrait subject and background real-time progressive blurring, which is more layered and beautiful. The telephoto camera can shoot high-definition high-quality zoom video, as well as commendable 4K time-lapse photography.
Not only the picture can be zoomed, but the audio can also be zoomed-P40 Pro and P40 Pro+ can accurately orient the surrounding sounds, and zoom in as the lens zooms in to zoom in on the distant sounds.
Excellent performance and smooth experience: open the whole scene of smart life
The P40 series uses the Kirin 990 5G SoC flagship chip, which combines the processor and baseband into one, incorporating more powerful capabilities in a smaller size. P40 Pro and P40 Pro+ are equipped with 90Hz refresh rate screens, which bring smoothness that can be perceived by the eyes, and the upgraded image rendering engine promotes 90fps games to run at full frames.
In the P40 series, the 5G user experience has also been upgraded to a new level, supporting more complete 5G frequency bands, and enjoying high-speed 5G networks for global travel. The P40 series supports 160MHz Wi-Fi 6 Plus, and the theoretical value of the air interface rate is up to 2.4Gbps. P40 Pro+ also supports industry-leading 40W wireless charging. In terms of heat dissipation, the P40 series have high-efficiency heat dissipation capabilities. The P40 Pro+ quadruple hybrid graphene liquid cooling is particularly excellent.
