Regarding the display resolution of Huawei Mate 40 series, someone familiar with the situation gave new information to Chinese news outlet QQ. According to this information, Huawei Mate 40 standard version will have a single-hole camera in the front and curved screen design. The supported resolution will be 2376×1080 pixels.
The Huawei Mate 40 Pro and Porsche Design Edition will have a dual-hole waterfall screen design, which supports a resolution of 2772×1344, but all of these models only provide a refresh rate of 90Hz.
As for the processor, Huawei Mate 40 standard version will have the Kirin 9000E chip, while the Huawei Mate 40 Pro and Porsche Design version will be equipped with a 5nm process Kirin 9000 processor. Both models will use face recognition at payment-level (which means you can use this to unlock payment features).
At the same time, the report confirms that the fast charging will be upgraded to 66W super fast charging technology, but there is no exact information about the battery capacity.
The front camera of Huawei Mate 40 series will use the 12MP Sony IMX688 sensor, and the main camera at the rear will continue to use the Huawei P40 series IMX700, but the legendary free-form lens will not make it to these models.
The standard version will use the previously used IMX608 sensor, while the Huawei Mate 40 Pro and Porsche Design Edition versions use a ultra-wide main camera, according to the people familiar with the situation, but whether the lens will be OV48C is not clear yet.
Huawei Mate 40 series will bring a three-camera synchronization feature for the first time. Although no more details are given, it is expected to be similar to the iPhone’s triple-camera synchronization function, it can achieve seamless zoom connection and white balance through synthesis, or capture ultra-wide-angle and telephoto image synthesis at the same time, providing a better anti-shake effect.
In addition, there is news that the rear camera module of the Huawei Mate 40 Porsche Design Edition is more special this time, and it does not adopt a circular shape.
It is worth noting that the same source also disclosed for the first time that the Huawei Mate 40 series will benefit from the HarmonyOS.
Among them, the Huawei Mate 40 series equipped with the Kirin 9000 series will be the first batch of adapted models, while the Kirin 990 5G processor models will be adapted in the second batch, followed by Kirin 990 4G, Kirin 985 and Kirin 820 models, and Kirin 810 and 710 models will be upgraded at last.
However, the current Huawei models equipped with MediaTek processors do not have a timetable for updating to the HarmonyOS. It is reported that the upcoming Huawei Mate 40 series will be equipped with the real EMUI11 system, which will bring global frosted glass and some first-release features.
The global conference time is scheduled for October 15th.
