At the end of last year, we wrote that Huawei, in addition to the Mate 40, Mate 40 Pro, Mate 40 Pro+, and Mate 40 RS Porsche Edition, is preparing to release another smartphone of the line – Mate 40E. Now the network has new information about the device.
According to an insider Digital Chat Station, the Chinese manufacturer planned to use the 50-megapixel main module of the Sony IMX700 camera in the new product, but due to the lack of components, it will be replaced with another sensor. Presumably, it will be a 64MP OmniVision OV64A. It has a 1/1.34 inch format and a 1.0 μm pixel size. The sensor boasts triple exposure HDR support.
Recall, Huawei Mate 40E will be a simplified version of the usual flagship. Instead of the Kirin 9000E chip, it will be powered by the Kirin 990E 5G SoC. In addition, the new product is credited with a 6.5-inch OLED screen with a resolution of 2376 × 1080 pixels, 6, 8 or 12 GB of RAM, 128, 256 or 512 GB of ROM, a sub-screen fingerprint scanner, a 4100 mAh battery and the Android 10 operating system.
How much will it cost and when the Huawei Mate 40E will be presented – there is no information yet.
