Mate 40 pro

The Huawei Mate 40 Pro will be unveiled on October 22, 2020. The gadget is 162.9 x 75.5 x 9.1 mm in size and weighs 212 grams. The smartphone is powered by a Kirin 9000 5G Octal-core CPU and a Mali-G78 MP24 GPU. The smartphone features an internal storage capacity of 256 GB and 8 GB of RAM. The smartphone sports a 6.76-inch OLED screen with a 1344 x 2772-pixel resolution. With a glass front, glass back, and an aluminum frame, it boasts an IP68 dust/water resistant rating. The rear camera includes a 50-megapixel (wide) omnidirectional + 12-megapixel (periscope telephoto) optical zoom + 20-megapixel (ultra wide) sensor, while the front camera has a 13-megapixel (wide) + TOF 3D (depth/biometrics) sensor.

The Huawei Mate 40 Pro has sensors such as Face ID, fingerprint (under display, optical), accelerometer, gyro, proximity, barometer, compass, and color spectrum. The phone is powered by a non-removable Li-Po 4400 mAh battery, which supports rapid battery charging at 66W, fast wireless charging at 50W, and reverse wireless charging at 5W. Some of the colors offered include mystic silver, white, black, green, and yellow. The operating system on which the phone is based on Android 10.0 + EMUI 11.

HUAWEI Mate 40

According to Huawei, the world will not end as a result of this escalating trade war, so here is the Mate 40 series for you. The Mate 40 Pro is up for review, a high-end almost-flagship that sits just below the Mate 40 Pro+.

Although there is a better phone out there, the Mate 40 Pro is a premium phone. The display is instantly noticeable: a 6.76-inch OLED that wraps around the sides of the phone, similar to but slightly more dramatic than the Mate 30 from last year. You’ll notice a camera configuration you’ve never seen before as you swivel around to the back, indicating that the original concept is still viable. The P40 Pro, which has a 50MP main sensor and a 5x periscope lens, as well as a new 20MP ultrawide, is at the center of that circle. That will be the first thing you notice. The Kirin 9000 chipset will be buried, making it Android’s first 5nm SoC (Apple’s A14 Bionic in the iPhone 12 has one). Everything is powered by a 4,400mAh battery, which isn’t very spectacular, but it’s charged via cable by a 66W adaptor and wirelessly by up to 50W – these aren’t rookie figures.

Misc: Stereo speakers, infrared facial recognition, optical fingerprint detection (under display), accelerometer, gyro, proximity, compass, and NFC are among the other features.

The Mate 40 Pro, on the other hand, comes with stereo speakers – two sets of perfectly tuned speakers. Another IR-based feature — a blaster on top — lets you control your old TV or air conditioner using the front-facing ToF camera. In this market, IP68 certification is necessary. Sure, there’s no 3.5mm connector, but is it really a deal-breaker at this point? In addition, unlike other half-size kits, this one includes a headset.


  • The waterfall screen and unusual camera arrangement distinguish this design.
  • Bright and color-accurate OLED panel with 90Hz refresh rate.
  • A battery that lasts a long time and recharges quickly.
  • Speakers of the highest order.
  • That’s how safe facial recognition is.
  • A chipset with excellent performance and low power consumption.
  • This camera system, both day and night, rear and front, is likely the most capable to date.


  • Even if there are workarounds and the bulk of applications continue to operate, some will not due to the lack of Google services on board. 
  • Competitors’ screens run at 120Hz, whereas this one runs at 90Hz. 
  • The cutout for the front camera is annoying. 
  • Despite the fact that it is 2020-ready, the chipset may fall behind competitors next year.


Of course, I’ve long praised and recommended current HUAWEI smartphones. Hardware is simple to sell because of its great build quality, stunning design, dynamic performance, spectacular cameras, and complete experience.
