Picture in Picture preview and Petal Search update rolling out for Huawei P40 series in UK



Huawei P40 Pro

Over the last two months, Huawei has been expanding a new camera feature for Huawei P40 series. First, it started to rollout in China, then in Europe and now it’s finally released in the UK.

Huawei P40 series update in the UK brings the Picture-in-picture preview frame in the viewfinder when the zoom level is set to 15x or higher. It also adds the Petal Search app and improves system security with May 2020 patches.

Petal Search is an important feature update for the Huawei P40 devices because it allows users to install some third party applications that are not available on AppGallery. Read more about Petal Search here.
