1. Amazing Space Ring Design
It truly is difficult to look past the gorgeous futuristic design of the Mate 40 series. While the front is sleek with a slight dash of metal at the top and bottom, it’s the back of the device that truly captures the imagination. The HUAWEI Mate 40 Series adopts the Space Ring Design, an evolution of the HUAWEI Mate Series’ iconic circular and symmetrical design. In here you’ll find circles within circles, with HUAWEI placing all the camera sensors and lenses in this ring-like design.
While the HUAWEI Mate 40 and HUAWEI Mate 40 Pro are available in Black and White, we recommend nothing less than the shimmering and enchanting Mystic Silver, a finish with a colour-shifting effect that evokes the mysteries of the unseen. There are also two vegan leather variants, Yellow and Green. Meanwhile, HUAWEI Mate 40 Pro+ features an exquisite nano-tech ceramic back panel available in two iconic colours: Ceramic White and Ceramic Black.
2. 5G with the Kirin 9000
As is expected of a cutting edge smartphone these days, the HUAWEI Mate 40 Pro and HUAWEI Mate 40 Pro+ are fully equipped for 5G thanks to the Kirin 9000 Series chipset. This is world’s first 5 nanometer 5G SoC, capable of handling intensive computations and multi-tasking operations with ease.
For the first time ever, the flagship 5G SoC has more than 15.3 billion transistors, making it one of the most dense and full-featured 5G SoC to date. The powerful CPU features a three-level power efficiency architecture with cores running at clock frequencies of up to 3.13 GHz. Also integrated into the SoC is a 24-core Mali-G78 GPU, as well as an innovative NPU featuring two big cores and one tiny core, taking on-device AI to a new level.
The 24-core Mali-G78 GPU in HUAWEI Mate 40 Pro and HUAWEI Mate 40 Pro+ is the most powerful GPU ever seen on a Huawei device. This delivers advanced graphics performance and is complemented by an amazing audio-visual experience for immersive gaming. The 90Hz display works together with 240 Hz touch sampling rate for greater responsiveness and now provides haptic feedback to correspond with the visual experience.
3. Want the most amazing camera yet? HUAWEI has you covered
HUAWEI has a strong relationship with camera brand Leica, and as such the HUAWEI Mate 40 Series has been co-engineered with Leica to provide the best camera solution possible. This include breakthrough upgrades to the ultra-wide angle lens, powerful high-definition main camera, impressive telephoto camera and more. With the Dual Cine Cameras and Dual Ultra-Wide Cameras on HUAWEI Mate 40 Pro and HUAWEI Mate 40 Pro+, users can capture amazing wide-angle videos and images from both the front-and rear-facing cameras.
The Ultra-Wide Cine Camera now offers an even wider field of view, as well as richer detail, improved low light performance and distortion correction algorithms, allowing users to capture beautiful expansive landscapes, while the Super Sensing Wide Camera provides true high definition shots. Image quality has been further enhanced with Full Pixel Octa PD AutoFocus. Improved distortion correction targets the face, body and limbs, making the ultra-wide-angle lens useful in more scenarios than ever. HUAWEI Mate 40 Pro features a Periscope Telephoto Camera to support 10x hybrid zoom and 50x digital zoom, and HUAWEI Mate 40 Pro+ takes it further with a dual-telephoto camera system that enables 20x hybrid zoom and 100x digital zoom.
The Ultra Vision Selfie Camera on the HUAWEI Mate 40 Series take selfies and videos to new heights with support for 4K capture and the option to shoot in one of three available fields of view, ranging from up close and personal to ultra-wide. Slow-Motion Selfie adds even more versatility to the front camera by letting users add dramatic flair when documenting their fast-paced actions.
But while still images are one thing, when it comes to cinematic videography, the HUAWEI Mate 40 Pro and HUAWEI Mate 40 Pro+ are unparalleled. The Dual Cine Cameras feature a 3:2 cinema-style shooting ratio sensor. Capturing high quality footage is easier than ever with Steady Shot, while the XD Fusion HDR Video ensures balanced exposure, even when users are capturing with extreme lighting contrast. Other evolutions include Tracking Shot, while Story Creator allows for true cinematic effects. Background music, filters and effects can also be added with ease. Not neglecting audio, HUAWEI Mate 40 Series features Audio Focus, Audio Zoom, and dual stereo speakers.
