Does the Huawei P40 Pro have a Fingerprint Sensor?

The Huawei P40 Pro is a high-end Android smartphone with a large display, amazing camera, and powerful performance. It’s one of the best phones you can buy, but it’s also one of the most expensive.

One common question people have about the Huawei P40 Pro is whether or not it has a fingerprint sensor.

Does the Huawei P40 Pro have a Fingerprint Sensor?

The Huawei P40 Pro is equipped with a next-generation in-screen fingerprint sensor for responsive and reliable unlocking. The sensor can be activated with a gentle touch. The phone utilises a pioneering technique in which light from the OLED screen is refracted and reflected to generate the resulting fingerprint pattern image. 

You can decide not to use the fingerprint sensor, as the Huawei P40 Pro also has the face unlock feature, with its implementation more secure than most Android smartphones. The phone has an IR sensor and a time-of-flight 3D camera to aid with security, and this allows you to unlock it at night, just with your face, without needing to shine the screen really bright at you. 

Does the Huawei P40 Pro Support Wireless Charging? 

Yes, it does, as the device is powered by Huawei’s Kinn 990 5G-ready chip, which supports wireless charging, up to 40 Watts speed, which is one of the industry’s best. 

The SuperCharge Wireless Charger Stand has a vertical design with a 60 degrees tilt, which allows you to place your phone vertically on it or horizontally, thanks to its dual coil design. There is also a  cooling fan at the bottom with very low noise. The charger is TÜV Rheinland-certified.

Does the Huawei P40 Pro have Gorilla Glass?

The gorilla glass is a brand of chemically strengthened glass that helps prevent damage and scratches to devices such as laptops, notebooks, tablets and phones. 

Unfortunately, Huawei’s P40 Pro does not have gorilla glass. 

How Much is the Huawei P40 Pro?

You can get the phone for £900 (about $1,120 or AU$1,770). 

Does the Samsung watch work with the Huawei P40 Pro

Does the Samsung Watch work with Huawei’s P40 Pro?

Some Samsung watches work with the Huawei P40 Pro. For example, the Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 and Galaxy Watch Active 2 work perfectly with the P40 Pro, though you could experience random disconnections for a way and then it becomes stable. You are also able to set the alarm in the native clock app on the Huawei P40 Pro, and the watch will vibrate and notify you when it is time. 

The Galaxy LTE watch also works with the Huawei P40 pro, but it is not fully compatible; this is attributed to the fact that Samsung says it would work with a Samsung device. 

I have to point out that none of the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 models can work with the Huawei P40 Pro because of the lack of Google Mobile Services.

Does Fitbit work with Huawei P40 Pro

Does Fitbit Work with Huawei P40 Pro?

The Fitbit App works with the Huawei P40 Pro, although you may experience accessibility issues; as the sanctions on Huawei by the USA (which resulted in the absence of Google Mobile Services on Huawei devices) have affected access as the Fitbit app is mainly available to be downloaded using the Google Playstore or the iOS app store. 

But there is a way to work around it, to install the Fitbit app on the Huawei P40 Pro. You would need to install the Fitbit APK on the device. But the latest version of Fitbit does not work on the P40 pro. The Fitbit Community has recommended FitBit 3.24 and FitBitMobile 2.81.

I recommend that you first download and install the Fitbit 3.24 version. If that doesn’t work, go for 2.81.

Once you are done downloading, you have to change the settings to install apps from external sources. Once the Fitbit APK is installed on your Huawei P40 Pro, you can then pair it with your device and track your exercise journey and fitness.  

Another way is simply to install the Fitbit app from the Amazon App store for Android. 

Does the Huawei P40 Pro have a Headphone Jack?

The Huawei P40 Pro does not have a headphone jack. This was done to improve the waterproofness of the device. You would have to use a wireless earphone instead of a wired headset.  The Huawei original Freebuds 3 are a great wireless earphone option. 


Overall, the Huawei P40 Pro is a stunner of a device. It ticks off so many boxes – superb build quality and performance, enhanced security, and water-resistant. If you do not mind having Google Mobile services on your device, this is one of the best devices in the market now, and it is highly recommended.
