Huawei P40 Pro Plus First Look: This is REAL 10X optical zoom! [P40 Pro+]

by birtanpublished on August 17, 2020

whatever other challenges it might be facing right now there's no doubt the huawei's p40 pro is one of the best phone cameras out there but huawei isn't stopping with the mere 4 lens setup this year

In fact the p40 pro has a big brother with an even more impressive camera array which if circumstances were a bit different would probably be making a much bigger splash

This is the huawei p40 pro plus the first phone with a true 10x optical zoom galaxy s4 zoom owners do not at me it's big it's expensive and it's got a total of seven cameras two on the front

And five on the back now for the most part you're dealing with the p40 pro here a lot of the core specs are identical so it makes more sense right away to just show what the differences are

Those include same main sensor same ultra wide sensor same selfie cameras the big difference here is instead of a five times optical zoom you've got a three times optical and a

Ten times optical the three times appears to be pretty much the same as what we got last year in the mate 30 pro f 2.4 optically stabilized and pretty good for punching in just a little bit

More than usual the 10x zoom is a real monster though as you can see from the label on the back here it's a 240 millimeter equivalent setup that uses a multiple periscope

Arrangement in order to fit all this stuff into something the size of a smartphone so to reach the sensor and fit in all those lenses light is reflected multiple times inside the phone

You can get a feel for how wild this camera setup is by taking a peek inside the periscope and seeing how to the naked eye it looks kind of bigger on the inside sort of like a tardis camera or something like

That what we can't really show you just yet though is photo samples that's because this right here is a very early version of the p40 pro plus which is running extremely early testing

Firmware you can get a feel for how far you can actually zoom here but obviously the image quality is nowhere near what you'll get when the final device is actually available to buy

There is still software tuning to do between now and then in fact in this firmware the phone isn't even set up to actually take photos with the 10x zoom lens so you kind of have to just

Admire its capabilities through the viewfinder that viewfinder goes all the way up to 100 times by the way as opposed to the mere 50 times of the standard non-plus p40 pro

It remains to be seen how well it'll do when maxed out at 100 times zoom we all remember how samsung was dunked on recently for promising 100 times space zoom then eventually delivering very smudgy

Results at that high zoom level every new level of zoom or wide angle that we get in a flagship phone adds to the versatility of the camera that you have with you everywhere that you go

And there are plenty of android phones out there right now that deliver 10 times hybrid zoom basically software assisted zoom from a five times camera with that in mind the most exciting thing for the p40

Pro plus isn't that it does real honest optical 10x but that with hybrid zoom it could push 15 or 20 times with a similar level of quality of course there's the unavoidable

Software question that gets raised with every new huawei phone these days and the teething issues involved in using a phone without google mobile services but in the p40 pro plus huawei has a

Very tantalizing character offered to phone buyers not just excellent low light and video but also true telephoto zoom that's at least a year beyond anything on the market right now

That's it for now we'll be getting final p40 pro plus hardware into review soon so stay tuned for our full coverage including a loadout of photo samples be sure to subscribe so you don't miss that and let us know what you think of

True 10x zoom in a phone down in the comments is it overkill or are you eagerly awaiting the next generation of zoom cameras in smartphones in the meantime thanks for watching and

I'll see you next time
