The biggest difference between the Huawei P40 Pro and the more expensive P40 Pro Plus are the phones' telephoto lenses, as the P40 Pro Plus offers a 10x zoom lens versus the P40 Pro's 5x zoom. Apparently, though, there's also another distinction: the two phones sport displays made by different companies.

The Huawei P40 Pro Plus will go down as the first smartphone ever to deliver 10x optical zoom, with the regular P40 Pro managing a 5x zoom lens. The P40 Pro Plus may seem like a slight upgrade over the P40 Pro, but zoom isn't the only difference between the phones.

While the displays of the P40 Pro were supplied by BOE and LG, it would appear that Huawei reserved the best for last. The P40 Pro Plus eschews the Chinese and Korean makers in favor of Samsung Displays. So yes, all P40 Pro Plus displays are supplied by Samsung. 

Samsung is widely regarded as making the best mobile displays, so it's nice to see Huawei prioritize its most expensive phone. OnePlus is another company that sources its high refresh rate OLEDs from Samsung, for example. It'll be interesting to see if the P40 Pro Plus suffers from the green tint issues some OnePlus 8 Pro owners have reported.

The P40 Pro Plus is expected to go on pre-order in China today. The 8/256 GB model carries a CNY 7,988 (US$1,120) price tag, while the 8/512 GB SKU costs CNY 8,888 (US$1,245). Sales to begin on June 6.

I like tech, simple as. Half the time, you can catch me writing snarky sales copy. The rest of the time, I'm either keeping readers abreast with the latest happenings in the mobile tech world or watching football. I worked as both a journo and freelance content writer for a couple of years before joining the Notebookcheck team in 2017. Feel free to shoot me some questions on Twitter or Reddit if it so tickles thine fancy.
