Although the COVID-19 outbreak has halted launches of many new smartphones, Huawei Consumer Business Group has unveiled the HUAWEI P40 Pro+, HUAWEI P40 Pro and HUAWEI P40 flagship smartphones featuring cutting-edge design and ground-breaking camera.

HUAWEI P40 Pro comes with a 50MP Ultra Vision Leica Quad Camera and a HUAWEI Ultra vision sensor, a never seen before 1/1.28-inch CMOS sensor which can capture more light then even before on a Huawei device, facilitating perfect shots in low light conditions.

With its front dual camera that includes a 32MP Selfie Camera and a Depth Camera, people can take some stunning selfies with amazing details.

The 40MP ultra-wide cine cameras in Huawei P40 has a focal length equivalent to 18mm and 1/1.54 inch sensor supporting 3:2 aspect ratio, which enables users to record movie 4K quality videos.

The camera can support up-to ISO 51200 light sensitivity and enable 7680 fps ultra-slow motion video.

The innovative hardware in the P40 Pro synergizes perfectly with the 5th generation image signal processor (ISP) and da-Vinci based Kirin 990 NPU (neural processing unit).

While the 5th Gen Kirin 990 includes hardware support of block-matching 3D filtering (BM 3D), an algorithm facilitating noise reduction in images, the da-Vinci based NPU combines AI capabilities with algorithm to improve image processing.

With AIS + OIS triple stabilization and TOF (time of flight sensor) camera, a technology using infrared lights to enhance depth, one is able to create a multi-level Bokeh effect, said the company.
