Huawei P40 Pro vs. P40 vs. P40 Lite camera review: Huawei smartphones compared
The main camera of the P40 Pro (standard wide angle, 1/1.28″, f/1.9) uses the brand new RYYB sensor with a resolution of 50 MP. With a size of 1/1.28″, it is larger than on the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra and offers much larger pixels (1.22 µm). In addition, there is a 40 MP ultra wide-angle lens (f/1.8, OIS), a 12 MP periscope camera with 125 mm of focal length (f/3.4, RYYB, OIS) for a lossless 5x zoom and a 3D depth camera.
In comparison to the Huawei P40 Pro, the “normal” P40 has to deal with some shortcomings. In the cheaper Huawei flagship, the wide-angle lens has significantly fewer pixels (16 MP), and there is also no periscope zoom. The 3D depth camera has also been omitted. What remains is the RYYB main sensor with 50 MP but without an optical image stabilizer. The 8 MP telephoto lens has a focal length of 80 mm, a 5x hybrid zoom and OIS.
The quad-camera setup of the Huawei P40 Lite consists of a 48 MP autofocus lens with a 17 mm focal length, a fast f/1.8 aperture and 5x digital zoom. In addition, there is an 8 MP ultra wide-angle camera (120°, f/2.4), a 2 MP macro camera (f/2.4) and a 2 MP bokeh lens (f/2.4) that collects depth information.
