Huawei launched the Mate 40 today along with the Mate 40 Pro and Mate 40 Pro Plus. We already discussed the Mate 40 Pro smartphones and now it’s time we see how the vanilla version competes against its elder brothers. Below are the complete specifications, features, and pricing of the Mate 40 smartphone.
The Mate 40 comes with a screen size of 6.5-inch. Compared to the 6.76-inch on the Pro model, there is not a major difference. Huawei could have made the Mate 40 a more compact phone. But anyway, the technology used for the Mate 40’s display is OLED. A little less resolution than on the Pro series which is 2376x1080px.
Here is less number of sensors on the Mate 40. A triple rear camera setup comprising of 50-megapixel primary, 16-megapixel ultra-wide, and 8-megapixel telephoto lens. The primary sensor is taken from the Pro lineup however it lacks the periscope lens. On the front side, you get a single 13-megapixel shooter meaning there is not a pill-shaped notch but a punch-hole, which looks less distracting.
Well, the absence of some sensors is not the only difference. Mate 40 comes with a watered-down version of the Kirin 9000 chipset. They have named it as Kirin 9000E. The difference between both the chipset is that the Kirin 9000E has 2 less GPU Cores and has a downgraded NPU.
The Huawei Mate 40 comes in different color options compared to a limited choice for the Pro Plus model. The smartphone comes in Mystic Silver, White, Black, Green, and Yellow options. The Huawei Mate 40 comes at a price tag of €899 (~$1063) and has 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage.
