Specifications, price and more


Instead of on the big stage of a press conference, Huawei presented its new high-end smartphones Huawei P40 and P40 Pro as well as the later top-of-the-line P40 Pro+ in an online presentation in March. Shortly before, the slimmed-down P40 Lite had already been shown.

Huawei P40 Lite, P40 and P40 Pro: Differences

At first glance, the new Huawei smartphones are very similar to the P40 series. However, there are many crucial differences in technical equipment, especially between the entry-level P40 Lite and the top-of-the-line P40, P40 Pro and P40 Pro+. This is exactly what we look at below:

  • Size and weight: The Huawei P40 has the smallest display in the quartet at 6.1 inches. At 175 g, it is also the lightest. The P40 Pro weighs 209 g and, like the Plus model, delivers 6.58 inches of content. The low-cost Huawei P40 Lite is located between the flagships with 6.4 inches of display diagonal and 183 g of weight.
  • Camera: In the rear camera, there are big differences between the four models. The “small” P40 Lite has a rather rare quad camera with 48 MP main camera, 13 MP ultra wide angle and 2 MP macro and depth each for this price range. The P40 Pro also has four lenses (50 MP main camera, 40 MP ultra-wide angle, 12 MP tele and ToF), while the top-of-the-range P40 Pro+ even features a “Super Periscope Telephoto” sensor with 10x optical, 20x hybrid and 100x digital zoom. The P40, on the other hand, “only” has a triple camera with 50 MP main camera, 16 MP ultra-wide angle and triple tele-lens with 8 MP. Camera specialist Leica had his fingers in the game for the three top models.
  • Front camera: The front camera in the P40 Lite resolves with 16 MP. The P40 and P40 Pro(+) each has a 32 MP selfie camera, which also has an autofocus on the Pro model.
  • Battery: The low-cost P40 Lite equips Huawei with a battery with 4,200 mAh, which is remarkably large for the price range. This puts it at the same level as the P40 Pro(+). The P40, which costs more than twice as much, has to settle for 3,800 mAh. The Lite and the two Pro models can be charged quickly with 40 watts (wireless) each, while the P40 can only be charged at a maximum of 22.5 watts.
  • RAM and ROM: Let’s start with the P40 Lite with 6GB RAM and 128GB ROM. The same fixed memory is also installed in the Huawei P40, along with 8 GB of RAM. In the P40 Pro, huawei has 8 GB of memory and 256 GB of internal memory, while the P40 Pro+ has 8 and 512 GB. For all devices, the storage space can be expanded with a Huawei NM memory card (i.e. no microSD) with a maximum of 256 GB.
  • 5G modem: Apart from the Lite, each P40 is equipped with a 5G modem. This is already on board with the in-house Kirin 990 5G SoC. Thus, the three upscale P40 models support the new mobile standard and thus fast mobile internet in the currently still rudimentary expanded 5G network. The P40 Lite has the Kirin 810 and transmits maximum LTE/4G.
  • Colors: Huawei’s color selection is quite colourful for the Lite model, which is available in the colours Midnight Black, Crush Green and Sakura Pink. The P40 is available in Black, Blush Gold and Silver Frost – and therefore suitable muted colours in the price range. The same colors are waiting for prospective buyers on the Huawei P40 Pro, while the P40 Pro+ will only be available in black and white.
  • Price: Huawei charges the following prices for the P40 models without a contract:
    Huawei P40 Lite for 299 Euro
    Huawei P40 for 799 Euro
    Huawei P40 Pro for 999 Euro
    Huawei P40 Pro+ for 1,399 euros
  • Pre-order: If you order a P40 Lite by April 6, you can buy the FreeBuds 3 wireless earbuds with an RRP of 179 euros free of charge. Pre-orders (until May 1, 2020) of the P40 and P40 Pro, which will go on sale on May 2nd, can even look forward to a free entry of the smartwatch Huawei Watch GT2e and the FreeBuds 3 with a total value of 348 euros.
