Well, I really don’t know what to say here then Nokia Lumia 1020 had a nicer name. But, it is not what I have to say even though I had a chance to play with P40ProPlus for a brief moment, this is more about what MrMobile is saying. That dude appreciates well what Nokia used to mean for smartphone photography, and when he says it is Lumia 1020 if 2020, he could be on to something. First, Huawei reminds a lot of Nokia back in the days, doing wonders in networking and having a smartphone division with a well known Nokia guy at the head of smartphone photography departments and a popular lens maker logo at the back of its top devices. Huawei P40 Pro Plus, as its name suggests, is really a Pro in the camera hardware, and that + means it delivers more than Samsung Galaxy 20 Ultra +. Huawei P40 Pro + does feel like Nokia Lumia 1020. It has that strange but familiar design, superb hardware, huge camera module at the back, a great company that will support the device and makes a lot of good quality accessories for it, a competent software but without the apps, just like Lumia 1020. All the details are there to really say that P40 Pro Plus is a Lumia 1020 of 2020. The camera is probably the only area where many will compare two devices since Huawei has all the best built-in, 50 MP OIS stabilized main camera, 40 MP ultra-wide, 8 MP OIS periscope camera with 10X optical zoom, 8MP OIS telephoto camera with 3X optical zoom and a ToF camera.
Do check Mr. Mobile’s 10-minute video review of Huawei P40Pro+, and do share your thought on his statement from the start of the video.
Now I’m waiting for WillItBeatNokoia’s video where Huawei P40ProPlus will fight against Nokia Lumia 1020.
