Huawei’s P40 and P40 Pro are now available to buy in Australia

Following the announcement of their 2020 flagship P40 series last month, the Huawei P40 and P40 Pro are now available to buy at retailers around Australia.

The P-series phones have always had a great camera heritage; and Huawei is coming out with all guns blazing on the camera front for the P40-series launching the phones with ‘Visionary Photography’.

Huawei has partnered again with Leica. Together they’ve co-engineered a new camera array that includes a 50MP Ultra Vision Camera with Wide Angle lens on both models as the main sensor. The P40 Pro also includes a 40MP Cine Camera, 12MP SuperSensing Telephoto Camera and 3D Depth sensor, while the P40 gets a 16MP Ultra-Wide Angle secondary Camera with 8MP sensor with Telephoto.

Huawei is bringing their superzoom tech from the P30 Pro to the P40 series with a 30x Digital Zoom on the P40, while the P40 Pro gets a 50x Super-Sensing Zoom.

The phones are plenty powerful with a HiSilicon Kirin 990 5G processor, 8GB RAM and 256GB storage.

The phones do run Android 10 with EMUI 10.1 which adds some interesting customisations – but the phones do not support Google apps or services, and have no access to Google Play. Huawei has instead moved to Huawei App Gallery to deliver apps however there’s a few gaps in their library at the moment, but they hope to bridge that gap.
