Earlier last week, Huawei officially announced the P40 series via its official livestream. Today, DxOMark, the site that benchmarks the photographic capabilities of the phone, released its review of the P40 Pro, giving it a score of 128 points.
Currently, that score is the highest ever bestowed by the site on to a phone. On that note, the score also means that the P40 Pro puts Huawei in the lead, beating both the Oppo Find X2 Pro and Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro.
According to DxOMark, the P40 Pro’s camera triumphs over the competition with its zoom capability, which is unsurprising, given the hardware the phone is packed with. Additionally, the phone’s quad-camera system reportedly offers improved image quality when used in ultrawide mode. The site also points out that the phone executes good subject isolation and a “pleasant bokeh shape”.
The Huawei P40 Pro is one of three devices announced by the brand during the livestream. Specs-wise, the phone runs on the Kirin 990 5G, 8GB RAM, and an internal storage capacity of 256GB. It also has a 6.58-inch OLED display with a 90Hz refresh rate. In regards to its main camera, the module comprises a 50MP Ultra Vision Wide, a 40MP Ultra Wide Cine, a 12MP telephoto lens with 5x optical zoom, and a Time of Flight (ToF) depth sensor.
The P40 Pro will made available first in the EU starting 7 April for 999 Euro (~RM4808). At the time of writing, there’s still no local availability and pricing.
