Today marks the debut of the Huawei P40 Pro in Nepal, albeit the phone came without any buzz in the market. But since the start of the US trade sanction, Huawei has been unable to keep pace with other manufacturers, so it’s pretty much understandable. Talking about the P40 Pro, it’s the top of the line phone from Huawei that brings all the camera goodness but lacks the nits and grits of Google Play Services.
Let’s have a look at the Huawei P40 Pro price in Nepal as well as its specs.
The new Huawei P40 Pro outperforms both the P30 and Mate 30 Pro with regards to the feature. Huawei has put a major emphasis on improving the camera as well as the screen on this one. The company is calling the display “Overflow” having curves on the four sides that brush down up to the frame. It compensates for the wider notch with a pill-shaped hole giving room to a 32MP selfie snapper with “autofocus” and the ability to capture 4K videos at 60fps.
At the front, the phone brings a 6.58-inch 90Hz OLED panel with 2,640 x 1,200px resolution with an under-display fingerprint reader underneath that is 30% larger space for easy accessibility. The front also gets an infrared face scanner that on the flip side could be used to safeguard payments.
The cameras on the P40 Pro is a must look after. Out of all the phones in the Nepali market, the P40 Pro most probably has the best camera. The primary one is a 50MP 1/1.28-inch sensor with an RYYB color filter. It comes with an octa phase-detection AF, which means 100% of pixels support phase detection autofocus. It also offers optical image stabilization (OIS) and an f/1.9 lens.
Huawei still clings to the periscope-designed zoom camera much like the P30 with the focal length and pixel size that numbers to 125mm and 12MP respectively, while it comes with an RYYB sensor and OIS.
The remaining cameras include an 18mm 40MP f/1.8 ultra-wide sensor with a 3D Time of Flight (ToF) sensor and a color temperature sensor.
There’s also a super steady telephoto video feature that augments the optical image stabilization, while the ultrawide shooter can capture HDR video, fostering ISO up to 51,200 in the dark. You get 4K time-lapses that allows slow capture while 7,680fps slow-motion videos allow going fast.
At the helm of the heart, the Huawei P40 Pro brings an octa-core HiSilicon Kirin 990 5G (7nm+) processor paired with 8GB RAM and 128GB UFS 3.0 onboard storage with proprietary NM (Nano Memory) support, which is expandable up to 256GB via shared SIM slot. It boots on Android 10.0 (AOSP + HMS) with EMUI 10.1 on top.
Powering the P40 Pro is a 4,200mAh cell with support for 27W fast wireless charging, matching the likes of the Mate 30 Pro. There’s also 40W wired charging for faster charging.
The device is dust and water-resistant with IP68 certification.
