The Huawei P40, P40 Pro and P40 Pro plus Launches 7. April
Focus this year was (again) on the ever-growing camera battle.
Same as last year Huawei was constantly comparing their phones to iPhone and Samsung in a very blunt fashion throughout the show.
The presentation was ok. Richard Yu not in his usual topgear, but still better than the other mobile phone companies CEO’s. Personally I would have liked some more innovative products other than adding waterfall edges to the P40 Pro and P40 Pro plus. A flip phone of sorts would have been lovely. A 300€ flip phone and Huawei’s system and I’d take a chance on it.
– If Huawei Denmark softens, then Your tech friend will test all the phones, and do camera tests for my series “Vloggers delight”: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z6aWo9mb0D8&list=PLd7v4P_QaTypEbMcIckOWcH0Ew-CvLW_q
