Check out these photo apps for the Huawei P40 series

The Huawei P40 series are undoubtedly made for photography. With lenses made in partnership with Leica, you take some pretty good snaps while travelling with either the Huawei P40 or the P40 Pro. But what if you want to take your photography skills to the next level and edit your photos tastefully? Here are some of the apps that you can find on the AppGallery.

Huawei P40.

Although the Huawei P40 series do not have official access to the Play Store, you would be wrong to think that it doesn’t have access to top photography apps. Developers have already ported their apps to the AppGallery allowing the app to achieve more than 180 billion downloads and 390 monthly active users worldwide.

But what are some of the best available apps in the AppGallery to elevate your photography game? Here are some suggestions when we were scouring the platform:


Camera360 gets you access to a range of effects and filters for your photos. Basic adjustments such as contrast, saturation, and selfie beautifications are also available for you to tweak your pictures.


An all-in-one photo and face editor on your smartphone, PicsArt comes with hundreds of photo effects and filters. It also has a suite of photo editors such as collage maker, face swap, beautify, and face editor.


A must have if you want to collate your photos into one image easily. More than 500 templates are available for you to choose from or you can create your own so you can express your individuality through your own collages.


MIX comes with more than 130 built-in filters for you to choose from. Additional effects can be applied to your photos such as a choice from more than 60 textures and color tools such as split toning and color balance.


An additional AI companion for your smartphone, UOKA uses an algorithm to identify the image from food, landscape, life, and other scenes and automatically applies a filter to optimize the photo you capture.

Sweet Selfie

Sweet Selfie comes with its own set of filters and stickers. Making collages with your selfies and stickers can also be done while allowing you to auto beautify, add blur, vignette, and retro effects to your selfies.


With a focus on selfies, Bestie has 54 filters suitable for your best look. Stickers can also be applied to your selfies as well as different cosmetic changes such as removal of acne, face shaping, and skin smoothing so you can take the best selfie.

Huawei P40.

These are only some of the preferred apps that we found on the store. There are some essentials, however, that are missing such as Lightroom, Snapseed, FaceApp, and Boomerang. Fortunately, these apps and more can be downloaded via third party sites such as APKPure and installed on either the P40 or P40 Pro.
