Huawei will unveil its Mate 40 series in a few days but the leaks have not stopped pouring in. Today, a new leak has been published on the web that reveals not only the key specs of the Mate 40 Pro but also press renders.
The Mate 40 Pro is a bigger device than its predecessor. Its screen size is 6.76-inches, an increase from the 6.53-inch screen of the Mate 30 Pro. The greatly curved display is an OLED panel with a resolution of 2722 x 1344 and a 456 PPI as reported by Winfuture. It also ditches the notch for a pill-shaped punch hole on the left side of the screen.
Powering the phone is the new HiSilicon Kirin 9000 processor, a 5nm octa-core chipset with a prime Cortex-A77 core clocked at 3.13GHz, three high-end A77 cores clocked at 2.54GHz, and four efficiency Cortex-A55 cores clocked at 2.04GHz. The chipset also has a Mali-G78 GPU and an integrated 5G modem.
In Europe, the phone will come in a single configuration that has 8GB of RAM and 256GB of UFS 3.1 storage. Other markets such as China will be able to pick up a 12GB RAM variant. There is an NM (nano-memory) card slot that allows for storage expansion.
For its cameras, the Mate 40 Pro has a 50MP triple camera system on the back arranged on a circle with Leica’s branding in the middle. As you can see in the image below, the camera housing protrudes a bit
The main sensor has an f/1.9 aperture and it comes along with a 20MP f/1.8 ultrawide angle camera and a 12MP f/3.4 telephoto zoom camera. There is 5x optical zoom and support for 8K video recording. There is also a dual-tone LED flash at the top while the sensor on the upper right is said to be a color temperature sensor that should help it capture true colors.
The pill-shaped cutout houses a 13MP f/2.4 primary sensor and a 3D sensor. Just like last year’s mode, the Mate 40 Pro will support gesture controls.
The phone packs a 4400mAh battery that has support for 65W fast wired charging via a USB 3.1 Gen 1 port. Users will be able to fully charge the phone from empty in under 1 hour. The Mate 40 Pro also has Bluetooth 5.2, NFC, and Wi-Fi 6. Unfortunately, it runs Android 10 with EMUI 11 and Huawei Mobile Services rather than the new Android 11.
The Huawei Mate 40 Pro will be available in black and silver in Europe but may be available in more colorways in other regions. There is no info on the price of the smartphone.
