The P40 range will be the first without Google Services, as a result of last year's US trade ban which prompted Google to withdraw software support. Despite this, the phones' impressive hardware and camera set-up can still woo customers. We spent 24 hours with the Huawei P40 – this is what we think.
The P40 phones are powered by the Kirin 990 5G chip and feature a 120Hz refresh rate – doubling the 60Hz common to most handsets.
The cameras are the crowning glory, unsurprisingly, with 50Mp main sensors and 40Mp ultrawide sensors on the Pro and Pro Plus. The base P40 features a triple camera set-up, while the P40 Pro features a quad camera, and the top-of-the-line Pro Plus features a whopping penta-camera set-up so powerful we'd recommend it to photographers.
