It’s been just a few days since Huawei announced the launch of its flagship camera-centric smartphone lineup for 2020 in the form of the brand new Huawei P40 series. As you might be already aware, the P40 series lineup consists of three smartphones — the Huawei P40, the Huawei P40 Pro and the Huawei P40 Pro Plus. The P40 Pro has already appeared in first impression articles and camera reviews across major technology publications around the globe. Among the publications that have reviewed the P40 Pro includes DXOMark.

It claims to be a benchmarking tool to asses the image and audio quality for modern smartphones.
Ever since the introduction of the DXOMARK Mobile score in 2012, smartphone brands across the globe have touted this as a measure of the smartphones’ camera prowess. For the past few years, it has become a tradition of sort for Huawei’s P-Series devices to top the DXOMark scores every time a new product is announced. This year too is no exception. DXOMark recently published a detailed camera review if the Huawei P40 Pro assessing its camera capabilities. The P40 Pro managed to score 128 points in the DXOMark rating system — ending up beating a bunch of camera phones that range from the recently introduced OPPO Find X2 to the Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus. With its score of 128, the Huawei P40 Pro also tops the DXOMark scores as of today.
