Huawei Mate 40 Series - Stepphase

Huawei Mate presents its new Mate 40 series with its new 5 nanometers Kirin 9000 processor.

Through an online event, Huawei presented its new Mate 40, Pro, Pro +, and Porsche Design Mate 40 RS.

The event, which is traditionally held in Munich, Germany, this year had to be online due to the pandemic affecting humanity.

Specifications of the Huawei Mate Pro Model

  • 6.8 inch OLED 90Hz screen
  • Kirin 9000 5 nanometer processor
  • 8 GB RAM
  • 256GB of base storage, expandable via NanoSD
  • 50 MP main camera + 20 MP ultra-wide-angle + 12 MP periscope telephoto lens, capable of 7X + 3D camera
  • 13 MP wide-angle front camera
  • 4400 mAh battery

The latter supports 65W wired fast charging, as well as 50W wireless charging, as well as reverse wireless charging. The screen has a curvature of 88º, which is enormous, just like last year’s model, although now there are physical buttons instead of virtual ones.

The terminal is IP68 certified against water and dust, stereo speakers, and infrared sensors to control the TV and other compatible home appliances.


Obviously, all models have 5G connectivity, as was customary with the high-end of the brand, and they come with EMUI 11 based on Android 10.

Meanwhile, the Pro +, or Pro “Plus” version, looks like this:

  • 50 MP main sensor + 20 MP Movie Cam + 12 MP telephoto lens + 8 MP periscope telephoto lens capable of 10x + ToF Sensor.

From Huawei, they also promise that the ultra-wide-angle of this equipment is “the most advanced on the market”, with an anti-distortion system and better results both during the day and in night scenes.

At the software level, the aerial gestures, presented in the Mate 30, improved to have lateral controls in addition to the vertical ones.
