Huawei P40 Pro: Why you could REALLY regret not ordering your phone today

Huawei P40 Pro: Why you could REALLY regret not ordering your phone today

If you were thinking of buying a Huawei P40 Pro, now is a very good time to hit the pre-order button. In fact, you’ll seriously regret it if you wait until tomorrow to place your order. That’s because this new all-singing, all-dancing flagship smartphone currently ships with an accessory bundle worth over £200 – but only if you order before midnight tonight.

This bonus gift includes a pair of Huawei’s Freebuds wireless headphones and a wireless charging kit which allows you to refill the phone without cables. If that sounds enticing, then the offer is available on the official Huawei website as well as from retailers including Amazon UK, Argos, Carphone Warehouse, and Currys PC World.

As a quick reminder, Huawei’s Freebuds are similar to Apple AirPods – offering wireless music playback and a charging case which brings a total of 20-hours of battery life to owners. You can read our full Huawei Freebuds review here.

Sadly, there’s not too long left to take Huawei up on this offer with the deal ending later today – April 6. The Huawei P40 Pro, which follows in the footsteps of the hugely successful Huawei P30 Pro from last year, launches in the UK tomorrow, April 7, 2020.

With the P40 Pro, Huawei appears to have built another hugely accomplished flagship smartphone. For your money, you’ll be treated to a quad-curve Overflow Display with a 90Hz refresh rate that flows over every side of the handset… there’s also a large battery, fast Kirin 990 processor and access to the latest 5G data speeds.

Huawei has also packed a bigger fingerprint scanner under the display and you’ll get the firm’s latest rear camera system which now includes a much larger sensor, improved zoom and better image stabilisation especially when shooting video.

There are also some neat camera tricks such as removing unwanted people in the background of your photos and clearing photos of reflections when snapping shots through glass. Huawei has also improved its AI meaning the camera knows exactly what you are taking images of and changes the settings accordingly.

The only downside of this new device is that there’s still no sign of Google’s apps which means no Gmail, Google Photos or the Play Store. Huawei has announced its own app marketplace but it has a lot of catching up to do before it can take on the likes of Apple’s App Store and Google’s Play Store.

The P40 and P40 Pro will arrive in stores tomorrow with the flagship P40 Pro+ shipping later in the year.

Speaking about the devices, Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei Consumer B, said: “The HUAWEI P Series has always been about innovative aesthetics and making premium imaging hardware accessible, representing the very best of industrial design and technology. With an outstanding sensor, camera systems that we co-engineered with Leica, powerful chipset and HUAWEI XD Fusion Engine, the HUAWEI P40 Series exemplifies our focus and offers an all-day Super Definition experience to help consumers realise their creative vision.”

The P40 costs from £699 with the P40 Pro starting from £899.
