Earlier today we learned that Huawei has postponed the launch of the Mate 40 series and will now launch at the end of October. It’s over ten weeks away, but we don’t have to wait until then to see what the standard Mate 40 looks like. Popular elusive Steve Hemmerstoffer aka OnLeaks has revealed what the next flagship will look like.
The leaker joined the blog Combined Expert for the exclusive leak which doesn’t include a video this time around.
Huawei has made significant changes to the design of the Mate series. The new Mate 40 will have a pill-shaped punch hole in the left corner of the screen for two front cameras. The cutout looks longer and thinner than that of the Huawei P40.
The Huawei Mate 40 has a curved screen that measures 6.4 inches. At the top are a number of holes, two of which are for microphones. There’s a bigger one that appears to be an audio jack, while another that’s shaped like a pill might be the infrared sensor.
Huawei has revamped the cookie camera housing for the Mate 40. Unlike the one on the Mate 30 series which tilts, this one does not. It’s also much larger but still houses three rear cameras. The position of the LED flash remained unchanged.
The Mate 40 has a USB-C port on the bottom which is flanked by a speaker grille on one side and a microphone on the other. The dimensions of the phone are given as 158.6 x 72.5 x 8.9mm (10.4mm with the camera bump).
When the Mate 40 launches, it will come with EMUI 11 ready to use with HMS. It should also support wired and wireless fast charging, a built-in fingerprint scanner, and 5G.
