Last year, Huawei stunned the smartphone world with the P30 Pro, which had the best camera you could find on a smartphone, alongside other strong specs. A lot has changed since then; most importantly, Huawei lost the privilege of shipping new phones with Google services, due to a U.S. trade ban

On Thursday, the company launched the Huawei P40, the P40 Pro and the P40 Plus, but these phones also come without Google services, which, unfortunately, is the most important thing you need to know about them. 

It's a pity, because Huawei's new smartphones are beautiful and very powerful. The Huawei P40 Pro has a 6.58 OLED display with a "quad curve" design, meaning the display "spills" over all four sides of the phone's rectangular shape. This makes the phone near bezel-less, though it is interrupted by a dual, 32-megapixel selfie camera, coupled with a depth sensor that gives the phone face unlock capabilities.

The display has a 2,640x1,200 pixel resolution and a 90Hz refresh rate, which Huawei claims is an ideal compromise (Samsung's Galaxy S20 has a 120Hz refresh rate, but it only works at lower-than-default resolutions). 

On the software side, the UI is Huawei's EMUI 10.1, and — in place of Google Play — the phone comes with Huawei's App Gallery app store. Huawei has been frantically populating its store with apps throughout the last year, but it's still a far cry from Google Play.
