Smartphones will be released in September
A well-known insider posted on Twitter the characteristics of Huawei’s promising flagships – Mate 40 and Mate 40 Pro. These smartphones, as already officially confirmed, will be released in early September, that is, in accordance with the schedule . At the official level, the use of a 5-nanometer single-chip system of the new generation Kirin 9000 has also been confirmed. True, the source says that this will only be in the older model – Mate 40 Pro, known under the code designation Noah.
The Mate 40 Pro will also receive a waterfall screen (with curved edges on the sides) made by BOE or LG with a frame rate of 90 Hz, as well as a camera with sensors with a resolution of 50 and 80 megapixels. It will also not do without a periscope module that provides optical zoom and a 3D ToF camera. That is, there will be four modules in total.
The source says the Mate 40 Pro uses a “liquid lens”. In fact, there will be nothing liquid in it, just such a definition is taken from Huawei’s patent solution, in which the motor is used both for the autofocus system and for stabilization. The technology also implies the use of a system that makes the electric motor more resistant to external influences (for example, in case of falls or impacts).
As for the usual Mate 40 (codenamed Ocean), it will also receive a screen curved on the sides with a frame rate of 90 Hz and a diagonal of 6.67 inches – made by LG. The camera will have sensors with a resolution of 50, 20 and 8 megapixels. The latter is part of a periscope module with optical zoom.
Front cameras of smartphones – double embedded in the screen with 3D Face ID. Battery capacities – 4300, 4600 and 5000 mAh. Apparently, there will be three models in the series – the third will probably be the Mate 40 Pro +.
It should be noted that the source of these details has repeatedly made correct predictions regarding the characteristics of the not yet officially presented smartphones Huawei and Honor. And, for example, in March, he published a real photo of the Huawei P40 Pro before its announcement.
