The most awaited Huawei Mate 40 series got launched today. There are three smartphones in the series including Mate 40, Mate 40 Pro, and Mate 40 Pro Plus. The Mate 40 Pro is the star of the show. Not only that but the Mate 40 series marks the end of Kirin chipsets from Huawei. The Mate 40 series focuses on performance as well as the camera.
The Mate 40 Pro comes with a 6.76-inch OLED screen. The front of the device looks beautiful thanks to the polarizing waterfall display. To make the display buttery smooth, Huawei has opted for a 90Hz refresh rate.
The display also comes in handy with its in-display fingerprint scanner. There is a triple rear camera setup comprising of a 50-megapixel primary, 12-megapixel periscope, and a 20-megapixel ultra-wide lens.
On the front, you will get a 13-megapixel shooter enclosed in a pill-shaped notch with a 3D ToF sensor. Powering up the phone is the Kirin 9000 chipset. The chipset is based on 5nm architecture, making it the first Android phone to be based on a 5nm process. The chipset comes with four Cortex-A77 cores and four Cortex-A55 cores.
On the graphics side, you will get a Mali-G78 GPU. Huawei claims big things for this chipset. The chipset comes with a 4,400mAh battery.
The Huawei Mate 40 Pro comes in multiple color options including Mystic Silver, White, Black, Green, and Yellow. Whereas the Mate 40 Pro Plus comes in Ceramic Black and Ceramic White color options. The Mate 40 Pro comes with a price tag of €1,199 (~$1,418) for the 8GB/256GB variant.
