Huawei P40 Pro series gets EMUI with Smart Eye Tracking, Super Night Portrait Mode 3.0, and Ring Light compensation

Huawei has been striving to give several reasons for users to buy its phones despite the unavailability of Google’s apps. It has been bolstering its own App Gallery as a replacement for the Google Play Store by onboarding several third-party applications like HERE WeGo Maps to run on its devices. Against all odd, Huawei launched its flagship P40 series in March this year featuring a 50MP UltraVision camera with RYYB sensor and a 32MP selfie camera across all three models, including Huawei P40, P40 Pro, and P40 Pro+. Huawei has also been releasing frequent EMUI updates to improve the camera.


Earlier this month, Huawei pushed the EMUI update for its flagship Huawei P40 series, adding Petal Search as well as improvements to the Camera app. Huawei is now rolling out another update (EMUI v10.1.0.140) for the Huawei P40 Pro and Pro+ smartphones bringing new features for taking better night selfies and photographs.

The most interesting of the new features that arrive on the Huawei P40 Pro series with the EMUI update includes “smart eye-tracking.” As per the changelog, the feature can “quickly and intelligently track human eyes” in case of both – still selfies and selfie videos. The feature is claimed to work perfectly whether you’re close to the phone or at a distance. This could be possible because of the front-facing IR depth sensor on the two smartphones.

Huawei has also upgraded the Super Night portrait mode 3.0 on the P40 series. With this update, the feature will capture more details and more accurate skin tone while capturing portraits at night.

Lastly, Huawei has added optimizations for selfie videos for users who use a light ring while recording videos for vlogs or TikTok videos. The new “ring light compensation” feature will improve the lighting conditions and make up for any lack of light while recording selfie videos, especially when you’re far from the light.
