A leak compiled by Roland Quandt details the alleged specs for the upcoming Huawei Mate 40 Pro. This is, of course, ahead of the October 22 launch event.
The Mate 40 Pro has a 6.76-inch display with a resolution of 1355×2772. It will be a curvier phone but will retain the side buttons, unlike the Mate 30 Pro. What isn’t detailed is the refresh rate but it is expected to be 90Hz or higher.
According to the report, the Mate 40 Pro won’t pack a periscope lens but instead, will have a 12MP telephoto camera with 5X optical zoom. In addition, it will feature laser autofocus coupled with an optical depth sensor.
The rear camera setup has a 50MP main camera with f/1.9 aperture and OIS. It will be able to shoot 8K video and will have dual-tone LED flash. Rounding out the camera module is a 20MP ultrawide camera with f/1.8 aperture.
The new Mate 40 will be powered by a Kirin 9000, the first 5nm chipset with an integrated 5G modem. It will use Cortex-A77 big cores with the prime core clocked at 3.13GHz. It also has three A77 cores running at 2.54GHz along with four A55 little cores at 2.04GHz. The Kirin 9000 packs ARM’s Mali-G78 GPU design which puts it way ahead of its competitors.
If these are all true, all that’s left for the Huawei Mate 40 Pro is the price, color, availability. Thankfully, we won’t have to wait too long for the new flagship series from Huawei to go official.
