The EISA called the Huawei P40 Pro “a true champion in its class,” praising the phone’s camera capabilities, display technology and luxurious design.

The Huawei Watch GT 2 also won high praise, with the association claiming that, thanks to the watch’s smart design and host of fitness features, “a modern classic is born.”

The EISA recognises the “luxurious designed” Huawei P40 Pro as the perfect companion for those who use their smartphone for taking stunning photos on a daily basis, believing the phone marked yet another impressive advance in mobile photography.
