If at the beginning of the year the flagship mobile phones of various brands can still compete with each other in image capture, then from this moment on, the entire competition in 2020 should have ended early. The brand that ended all of this is Huawei, who has repeatedly won the DxOMark list, and the product that ended all of this is a newly released flagship, Huawei P40 Pro. After the release of the mobile phone, DxOMark gave 128 points to express its recognition of this product, but when I really experienced this product, I discovered that this may not be enough.

Huawei P40 Pro brings a comprehensive upgrade of flagship phones, first of all a breakthrough in ID design aesthetics. It has a narrow bezel on the front and an ultra-high screen ratio. At the same time, it also optimizes the feel of the phone through four curved overflow screen designs. Then integrate the form of nature into the product. For example, there are zero degrees of white from the Nordic glaciers, deep blue from the ocean, morning gold from the sun and the beach, and frost silver from the winter and early morning. At the same time, Huawei adjusts the saturation to make the color appear deeper, rather than staying on the surface of the fuselage.

Different from the hyperboloid scheme adopted by many flagships, the Huawei P40 Pro introduces a new four-curved overflow screen design. The mobile phone screen is bent backwards on all four sides and merges with the fuselage. This design narrows the screen border of the Huawei P40 Pro to a new level. The front view is almost a borderless screen. The curved shape also makes the phone more pleasing to the eye, and when it is actually used, the curved surface also brings more wonderful. The tactile experience is the feeling that the palm and the phone are integrated.

Technically, it is very difficult to manufacture a Huawei P40 Pro such as a four-curved overflow screen. All four sides are curved surfaces, which means that the fuselage parts must be perfectly fitted, especially the processing of the corner parts, which is more difficult than in the past. Higher, not only to ensure the overall beauty but also to ensure that the fuselage is strong enough. Of course, as users, we don’t need to care about these, because even if it is difficult, Huawei has already done it.

This time the Huawei P40 series uses its own Kirin 990 5G SoC, has strong performance, and uses Wi-Fi 6+, bringing extremely fast Wi-Fi download speeds, which is the current extreme level of mobile phone speed. NFC, infrared remote control, large battery fast charge and long battery life are all standard features of Huawei P40 Pro.

With the arrival of Huawei P40 Pro, EMUI has also been fully upgraded. The built-in system of the mobile phone is the latest EMUI 10.1, and many new user-friendly functions have been added. For example, the original smart split screen is now integrated with the return function. Users can open other applications through small windows to implement multi-task operations, making some complex operations very simple and improving the operating experience.

Of course, the most worth mentioning on the Huawei P40 Pro is the camera function. Its rear uses a set of super-sensing Leica four-camera system, including a 50-megapixel super-sensing main camera, a 40-megapixel movie camera, a 12-megapixel 5x optical zoom camera, and a 3D deep camera. This year, the Huawei P40 series introduced the largest image sensor in 2020, a new customized 1/1.28-inch super-sensing sensor, combined with the newly added multi-spectral color temperature sensor, which laid a good foundation for the mobile phone image function.

This time, Huawei P40 Pro also brings the wonderful moment function of AI. Huawei ’s AI algorithm has also been fully upgraded to further tap the potential of NPU. The third generation of AI photography has added functions such as AI pose capture, AI removal of passers-by, and AI reflection elimination, and has taken new heights in real-time blurring, portrait photography, and scene recognition.

In addition, the third-generation AI photography can not only optimize in real time when taking pictures, but also play a greater role in shooting video and post-processing of photos, enhancing the imaging function of mobile phones in all directions.

With powerful hardware, Huawei P40 Pro also achieves dual OIS + AIS anti-shake. The previously praised slow motion shooting at 7680fps also continues to be enhanced, slowing down the time, allowing us to see many moments that we will accidentally miss. Video shooting adds new creative space.

In fact, the technology of Huawei P40 Pro is far more than that, which makes it deserved to score high scores no matter whether taking pictures or shooting videos. But for users, it seems too obscure to express everything with scores. Today we will use the 6 sets of photos extracted after this period of use to tell you in a more vivid way how this 2020 video flagship performance.

The first group

In this set of photos, we selected a European-style building and took two photos. The first photo was taken at a super wide angle in the distance, and the camera accommodates all the scenery of the whole building and even the entire street. The second photo was taken at the same position, and the Huawei P40 Pro was adjusted to 10x zoom. Not only is the clock tower in mid-air very clear, but also the pointer and branch details are clearly visible, completely subverting the shooting of many people on mobile phones Cognition.

The second Group

Since the telephoto shooting of Huawei P40 Pro is so powerful, let’s try a more extreme operation. When a passenger plane flew overhead, all we had to do was adjust the phone to 10x zoom, then press the shutter, and we got such a picture. Do you think this phone has room to play? May wish to stretch the phone to 30 times zoom, why not wait until night to shoot the moon! Jitter is the biggest enemy of telephoto shooting. At this time, in addition to the high image quality at the telephoto end, strong anti-shake capabilities are also the basis for successful capture.

The third group

We tried two other extreme shots. The first one was the phone facing the sun. See how many colors and details can be retained in the backlight environment. The performance of the Huawei P40 Pro is not disappointing. Did not cause much interference to the photo. The second one is high-resolution shooting, letting 50 million pixels fire fully, we can see that even a very small part of the photo, we can see very rich details at 100% size.

With powerful computing power and ultra-high-specification hardware, Huawei P40 Pro has been able to easily respond to our all-weather shooting needs. At any time, we only need to take out the phone and press the shutter to get a pretty good photo, no matter what Day or night, no matter outdoor or indoor, there is no need to consider whether the current environment is suitable for mobile photography.

The fourth group

This is a night shooting session that many people like to see. The two photos are taken at wide angle and 5 times zoom. In fact, it is already night, and there is a strong conflict between warm and cold colors in the picture. Huawei P40 Pro makes the night shot clearer but does not make the picture color cast. If the standard wide-angle photo is played at a high level, the photo taken after the 5x zoom is a surprise. This is because the Huawei P40 Pro introduced the RYYB filter array for the first time at the telephoto end, which increased the amount of light input by 40%. Improved zoom quality.

As the finale, it is time to look at the new features of the third-generation AI photography. When the dynamic photo function is turned on, you can see new options in the photo editing function. For example, when there is a passerby in the photo, the phone will record the background information and identify the passerby, and then make the operation to remove the passerby . Similarly, when we encounter reflections during shooting, AI can also recognize and eliminate reflections on people’s silhouettes.

At any time, we only need to take out the phone and press the shutter to get a pretty good photo, no matter what Day or night, no matter outdoor or indoor, there is no need to consider whether the current environment is suitable for mobile photography.

Through these photos taken during the use process, it seems to have explained why Huawei P40 Pro is called the 2020 image flagship, but in fact it has far more functions than that. If all of its advantages are listed, the space may be lengthened a lot, and if the technology used to implement all this is explained a little, it may be even more lengthy and complicated. As users, we don’t need to understand what is behind these photos, we just need to know what this phone can do by taking pictures, which is actually enough.

Behind every easy-to-use product is the crystallization of countless wisdom. Huawei P40 Pro is such an easy-to-use product. When we want to record everything around us with a mobile phone, this phone seems to be telling us that you only need to take pictures with peace of mind, and leave everything to me. As the flagship of the 2020 image, what it presents is not just how good the picture is and how powerful it is, but that it has never been easier and more efficient to shoot. This may be the ultimate goal of the technology.
