Huawei has officially unveiled the Mate 40 series smartphones. These are flagship devices with the most top-end technical characteristics, which do not have Google services. The GSMArena publication tells more about the devices.
Mate 40 Pro and Mate 40 Pro+
Huawei Mate 40 is equipped with several Leica main camera modules at once, located in a round block on the back of the case.
The first is at 50 megapixels (f/1.9, OIS, 1.22µ), the second is at 20 megapixels (super wide-angle, f/1.8), the third is at 12 megapixels (periscope, 5x zoom). In the Mate 40 Pro+, the situation is even better – this device can shoot with 10x optical zoom using an additional photo module. In addition, in the version with the Plus prefix, according to the company, they worked on the optics for the wide-angle camera, which allows better cope with distortion.
The front cameras in the devices are the same – at 13 megapixels. Depth sensors are located next to them for more accurate face unlocking. The diagonal of OLED screens of both devices is 6.76 inches, the edges on the left and right are curved enough to create a waterfall effect. Panel resolution – 2772 by 1344 pixels, panel refresh rate is 90 Hz. Fingerprint scanners are built right into the screens. They did not give up on stereo speakers either.
The devices also have a lot in common with hardware. So, the battery capacity is 4400 mAh. Wired charging power – up to 66 W, wireless – up to 50 W. The asset is also the technology of reversible charging. The processor for the new products is the proprietary Kirin 9000 chip (5-nm process technology). Of course, there is support for working in 5G networks.
In Europe, Huawei Mate 40 Pro will only be sold in a version with 8/256 GB of memory – for this, they will ask for 1200 euros. The older Mate 40 Pro + in the version with 12/256 GB of memory was estimated at 1400 euros.
The younger version of the smartphone with a 6.5-inch OLED screen, slightly less curved edges, and a resolution of 2772 by 1344 pixels. There is also a 90 Hz mode. The fingerprint scanner is located right below the screen.
The camera includes modules of 50 megapixels (f/1.9), 16 megapixels (“wide-angle”, f/2.2) and 8 megapixels (telephoto, f/2.4, 3x optical zoom). At the same time, the front camera is ordinary, not double – there is no depth sensor in the device. The processor is a slightly simplified Kirin 9000E, the battery is 4200 mAh, there is a 40-watt wired charger. Unfortunately, wireless charging won’t work. There are no Google services here either.
In Europe, the 8/128 GB version will cost 899 euros.
