Huawei’s top tier flagship – Huawei Mate 40 Pro has now surfaced on the subway in China. The phone is packed within a protective cover such as an engineering machine.
From the looks, the Mate 40 Pro features a curved edge display and has a wide cutout on the top left corner to house two selfie cameras. Both top and the bottom bezels amount to the lowest. There’s also a physical volume rocker on the right side, which was removed in the Mate 30 Pro and a power button painted in red color.
Some of the live images also reveal Huawei Mate 40 and Mate 40 Pro’s camera frame module design consisting of different camera lenses and periscope telephoto zoom.
From the specifications perspective, the Huawei Mate 40 series may in four variants:
- Huawei Mate 40
- Huawei Mate 40 Pro
- Huawei Mate 40 Pro+
- Huawei Mate 40 RS
These phones will be powered by 5nm processed Kirin 9000, which will be the last flagship Kirin processor. With the launch of the Mate 40 series, Huawei may also increase its charging power from 40W to 65W and it’ll run the latest EMUI 11 while remaining on Android 10.
As seen in the renders leaked previously, the Huawei Mate 40 series will carry on the round camera design of Mate 30 Pro and with even bigger camera bump and sensors.
Amid the difficulties posed by the U.S. sanctions, Huawei preparing to launch these new Mate smartphones only on Huawei Mobile Services (HMS) and will not have access to the Google Mobile Services (GMS).
Also, the Huawei Mate 40 series will be short in chipset due to the U.S. restrictions. So, there’s a fair chance that these phones won’t make up to the global markets until 2021 and initially launch in China.
