In addition to a 32-megapixel camera, it is also equipped with an infrared depth / gesture camera.In addition, there is a sensor in the proactive combination that can detect the user’s attention, and the user can keep the phone on the screen while watching.In order to give full play to the image function of the P40 series, Huawei also introduced a custom fill light.In other aspects, the P40 series is equipped with Kirin 990 chip, supports dual-mode 5G, the entire system supports dual-card dual-standby and eSIM, and blesses the recently popular WiFi 6+.The P40 has a power of 3800 mAh, the P40 Pro / Pro + 4200 has a power of 4200 mAh, and the P40 Pro + supports 40W wireless super fast charging and reverse wireless charging.In addition, the P40 also supports functions such as multi-device collaboration and smart split-screen.

What is HMS?After Google ’s GMS (Google Mobile Services) banned Huawei ’s use, Huawei ’s overseas market was severely impacted, so Huawei ’s self-developed HMS filled the gap in GMS.In order to win more developers, Huawei previously announced a billion dollar launch of the “Yao Xing” plan to attract developers to develop applications for the HMS ecosystem. This year Huawei will also hold more than 100 related events around the world.The architecture of the mobile phone equipped with Huawei HMS service is introduced by Yu Chengdong from Tianfeng Securities Research Report. Currently, Huawei HMS covers 170 countries and regions, has 130 million developers and partners, and has 400 million monthly active users.Next, Huawei’s high-end speaker Sound X debuted.In November last year, Huawei released this product to Chinese users for the first time in Shanghai.Now, Huawei has released this speaker again to the world.Sound X is a high-end speaker designed and developed by Huawei and France’s well-known high-end audio brand Di Vale. Its weight is up to 7 kg.The exterior design looks very elegant.When most smart speakers are released, they focus on their AI and connection performance, which means that the manufacturer values the entry potential of their smart homes more.When Sound X was released, it almost introduced its sound quality and related performance: equipped with dual subwoofers, four times the volume of speakers in the same range, and the function of back wave cancellation made it more stable, the sound quality was more pure, rare earth strong magnetic, 21mmCircle, 360-degree surround omnidirectional uniform sound field, treble extends to 40KHz … After many professional-grade audio functions are placed on the smart speaker, Sound X becomes the first Hi-Res certified smart speaker.In addition, Huawei also brought new watches WatchGT 2 and WatchGT 2e, as well as new smart glasses.It’s time to announce the selling price.As previously rumored, the P40 Pro + sells for more than 10,000 yuan, and the 8G + 512G version sells for up to 1,399 euros, or about 10,844 yuan, and will be launched in June.The P40 (8G + 128G) is priced at € 799, which is about RMB 6193; the P40 Pro (8G + 256G) is priced at € 999, which is about RMB 7,743.Both models will go on sale on April 7.Of course, these are the European prices.By convention, the domestic version will be priced lower than the European version.Due to the restrictions on Google ’s GMS ban and the current severe epidemic situation in Europe, the Middle East and other places, Huawei P40 series will be more difficult to open up in overseas markets.The epidemic situation in the domestic market is slowing down, and the ban on GMS will not affect the domestic market. Therefore, the main position of the P40 series will be in China. The price and sales strategy of the National Bank version will be the core factors that determine the final sales of this mobile phone..
