Huawei’s latest P series smartphones the Huawei P40 Pro and P40 Pro+ include top-level camera innovations that radically increase phone picturization and video capture possibilities more enhanced. Directional Audio Zoom is one of the best features available in the Huawei P40 Pro and P40 Pro+, let’s explore below.
The new trio of smartphones from Huawei continues the series’ heritage of imaging excellence. Having such a large 1/1.28-inch sensor with pixel size measuring 2.44μm to highly boost light intake for enhanced low-light performance, and a new periscope design that realizes 10x true optical zoom.
In terms of core camera configuration, the Huawei P40 Series supports real-time Bokeh effects for videos. Bokeh to help highlight the main subject of the footage. The telephoto camera can capture high-quality zoom footage as well as 4K time-lapse videos.

When the sound you want to focus on is muffled, distorted, or too far away to be heard, you can simply zoom in on the audio source via the camera, much like you would for a distant subject in a telephoto shooting. The omnidirectional microphones are then adjusted accordingly to focus on that specific sound and filter out ambient noise.
