The Huawei Mate 40 Pro is gradually becoming the most interesting flagship of the year amid reports that it may be the last for Huawei due to the suffocating US sanctions that put the Chinese company in a difficult situation.
One of its advantages should be a camera, where Huawei will try to gather the best it has in its arsenal. According to unverified data, the device will receive a 50-megapixel main sensor, an 80-megapixel wide-angle sensor and a 20-megapixel periscope, and the image will be complemented by laser autofocus. Meanwhile, a photo was was published on Chinese social media, reportedly showing the main camera block of the Mate 40 Pro. Looks like this:
Thus, a square block with a registered circle is rather one of the internal elements of the structure and the user will only see the circular part, as in existing smartphones. The official presentation of the Mate 40 series will take place in October. And in September, we expect the announcement of the Kirin 9000 and the exact date of the premiere of the Mate 40.
Price of the Huawei Mate 40 Pro with Kirin 9000 will start at $ 860
Huawei hopes to develop and promote its products face a problem with TSMC’s production of Kirin chips. In the near future, the replacement of TSMC is not on the horizon. And the future Kirin 9000 (or Kirin 1000) could be the last processor created in collaboration between the two companies. It will be interesting to see what the flagships of the Huawei Mate 40 family will be.
The announcement of the smartphones will be made in October, while the confidential ones will continue to provide information about what they will be. It is already known that the series will include four models, where, in addition to the traditional basic and Pro versions, the Huawei P40 Pro + and Huawei Mate 40 Porsche Special Edition will be presented. All new items must receive a Kirin 9000 chip (or Kirin 1000). In addition to 8/12 GB of RAM and up to 512 GB of storage.
The Huawei Mate 40 will arrive with a 6.67-inch flat screen with a refresh rate of 90Hz. Except for a 4,300mAh battery.
The Pro version should have a 90 hertz curved screen. In addition to a 4600 mAh battery, a 32 megapixel front camera and a multi-unit rear camera. It will have a ToF sensor and support for 5x optical zoom. The Huawei Mate 40 Pro is expected to be priced between $ 860 and $ 1,065, depending on storage capacity.
On September 5, the company could announce the premiere of the flagship chip Kirin 9000 (Kirin 1000). And, most likely, the release date of the Huawei Mate 40 will be announced on the same day.
