Huawei P40 Pro Plus comes with great features. But it was introduced at the wrong time when the COVID-19 pandemic has reached new scales. The P40 Pro Plus is said to be sold for 1,399 euros.

The new Huawei P40 Pro Plus was introduced to the public on Thursday. Sources say that the new phone offered by Huawei has everything that it takes to be appealing to Apple‘s iPhone and Samsung users. It is also the most expensive of the phones in the same series. With a whole lot of features, the P40 Pro Plus is indeed one of a kind. 

New Huawei Phone Comes with Great Features

The P40 Pro’s five sensors are one such example. Four of those sensors are optical. Huawei claims that the phone has a 100x zoom range. It is reportedly a combination of both hardware and software improvements that provide the zoom capabilities. Its HiSilicon Kirin 990 5G (7 nm+) processor is also to die for with advanced capabilities. 

Running off a Mali-G76 MP16 GPU, it can fulfill most of the graphical usage abilities of recent other smartphones. 

In just a few words, the P40 Pro Plus is a great phone to buy. Its release, however, comes at a very difficult time for consumers. many Analysts believe that most consumers have changed their purchasing patterns.

Huawei P40 Pro Plus Comes at the Wrong Time

It is also reflected in the choice of what to buy and what to leave alone. This opportunity cost has arisen as a result of diminishing incomes and increased expenses due to staying indoors. 

Other analysts believe that Huawei may be prepared for this downturn. As the COVID-19 pandemic moves away from China, other countries are trying to get to terms with the virus and its spread. 

Internal demand from the Chinese could help with the falling demand in external markets. It also could become a new paradigm going forward for Huawei and others. With the Chinese markets getting back on their feet, a lot of possibilities are available for those who would take advantage of the new normal.

Huawei has gone above the bar in the P40 Pro Plus. Its design closely resembles the Samsung Galaxy S20 series. The stated 100x Zoom range also puts it on the same pedestal with Samsung Galaxy S20 ultra. With 5G capability, the P40 Pro Plus is set to compete with the new phones that will enter the market. 

Huawei May Become Bigger than We Think

However, Huawei’s phones may suffer from a broad market appeal. The U.S.-China trade conflict has led to Huawei’s inability to include new versions of Google‘s Android OS. Access to Google’s applications is also non-existent. This may also signal that users from the search engine giant may not be interested in using Huawei’s products and services. 

On the flip side, it may also be a moment of innovation for Huawei. Sources say that the phone maker is ready to spend up to $1 billion or even more to create its software universe. This could be big for developers seeking o cut their teeth outside the Googleplex. Its Harmony OS has however not been released yet. It is too early to tell if this will work out. 

The thing is that it just might. necessity has always been proven to be the mother of invention. This might happen in Huawei’s case as well. Who knows?
