Huawei’s new generation flagship smartphone Huawei Mate 40 Pro aims to be a high-end model in terms of both design and hardware.
The Mate 40 Pro, which carries traces of the Mate 30 Pro in terms of design, has a curved screen like the previous model of the series. This screen, which has a total curvature of 88 degrees, is called Waterfall Screen by Huawei. Let’s say that this curved screen, which Huawei offered to users with the Mate 40 Pro, makes the phone look even thinner.
In general, a combination of metal and glass is used in the phone’s case, which has attractive lines. Mate Pro 40 managed to feel the sentiment with premium metal and glass details to Turkey Mystic Silver and comes with two different colors, including black.
There are physical power and sound buttons on the side of the device. The location of these buttons is good, users can easily access these buttons even when using them with one hand.
On the back of the device, we see the triple camera setup, which Huawei describes as the Space Ring. As you know, Huawei included a similar camera design in the Mate 30 Pro model. We see that Huawei made some new additions to this camera design in the Mate 40 Pro model, placing the camera lenses on the ring in question.
The device, which weighs 212 grams, is 9.1 mm thick. In this respect, the Mate 40 Pro, which is slightly heavier and thicker compared to the company’s other phones, generally does not make this feel to the user. Fitting very well in the hand, the Mate 40 Pro can be used comfortably with one hand.
Mate 40 Pro Display Features
In the Huawei Mate 40 Pro, a Flex OLED type screen of 6.76 inches is used. This screen, which has a screen refresh rate of 90 Hz, has a pixel density of 456 PPI and HDR10 + support. This curved screen offers users a resolution of 1344 × 2772 pixels.
The screen of the Mate 40 Pro has very vivid colors. Offering a very high quality video experience on Netflix, YouTube or similar platforms, the Mate 40 Pro also makes you feel the screen quality while playing games.
Huawei Mate 40 Pro Processor and Other Hardware Features
The Huawei Mate 40 Pro is powered by the Kirin 9000 processor, which is produced with a 5 nm fabrication process. This eight-core processor has a total of 15.3 billion transistors. According to Huawei, this processor contains 30 percent more transistors than its closest competitor. The phone, which is also very ambitious in terms of graphics, has a 24-core Mali-678 MP24 graphics processor.
8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of internal storage are used on the phone. In addition, the memory of the device can be increased with Huawei Nano Memory. However, it should be noted that the price of this card is quite expensive.
Huawei Mate 40 Pro is powered by a 4400 mAh battery with 66W fast charging support. The device, which can be charged 100 percent in 1 hour, also supports 50W wireless charging.
Of course, there is a software part of the job, which is very important. Huawei has been using Huawei Mobile Services, which has been developed by itself, instead of Google Mobile Services on its smartphones. So, what does this new system provide for us?
First of all, when you buy the Mate 40 Pro, you can download the latest applications from Huawei AppGallery, the world’s third largest mobile market. All applications on AppGallery are also fully compatible with the company’s services. You can get full support through AppGallery in areas where information privacy is important such as EBA, E-Government and banking applications.
In addition, Petal Search, which offers more than a search engine, is also integrated into the Huawei ecosystem. You can easily find the answers to your questions on Petal Search.
Petal Maps, on the other hand, is integrated with both the Huawei ecosystem and Petal Search. Thanks to this integration, you do not have any problems with navigation. Petal Maps can be used in more than 140 countries and regions.
Huawei Mate 40 Pro Camera Features
As we mentioned in the Huawei Mate 40 Pro review video, Huawei’s new generation flagship offers a different experience, especially in the camera part. In the center of the camera setup, which the device describes as the Space Ring, a 50 MP LEICA produced wide-angle main camera sensor with f / 1.9 aperture is located. This main camera has a 1 / 1.28-inch lens and RYYB color filter.
This wide-angle main camera of the Mate 40 Pro is accompanied by a 20 MP f / 1.8 ultra-wide-angle camera and 12 MP f / 3.4 telephoto cameras with 5x periscope zoom with OIS support.
The Mate 40 Pro, which can shoot 8K resolution videos thanks to its triple rear camera setup, can also focus on objects with 7x optical zoom. On the front of the new member of the series, which promises a very high quality camera experience in general, there is a self-shooting camera with 13 Megapixel resolution f / 2.4 aperture and a 3D ToF sensor.
