Check Out the Amazing Features of the Huawei Mate 40 Series

Huawei Philippines has yet to announce the launch date for the new Mate 40 series, but we are expecting, not 1, but 3 phones:  the Huawei Mate 40, Mate 40 Pro, and Mate 40 Pro Plus.

The rivalry between the tech giants of the United States and China has left Huawei without Google in its system. Despite this, business seems stronger than ever for Huawei. According to the latest research by tech market analyst firm, Canalys, Huawei held the leading global market share during the second quarter of 2020 with 55.8 million units sold, which accounts for 19.6% of the market. With this, Huawei also beat Samsung, which previously held the title of the world’s largest smartphone vendor.


Cameras and Video

The Huawei Mate 40 can be easily distinguished by its smaller screen size and is seen as slightly flatter with 68-degree curves compared to the 88-degree curves on the Pro models. The Mate 40 has a resolution of 2,376 x 1,080 pixels, which is lower compared to its Pro model counterparts with 2,772 x 1,344 resolution.

All three variants allow for XD Fusion HDR video to ensure a balanced exposure with better contrast, as well as super-slow-motion footage up to 240 frames per second. They also have ultra-wide and telephoto cameras that can perform up to 5x maximum optical zoom.

In addition to the 50-megapixel main camera, the Mate 40 Pro and Pro Plus units feature Huawei’s second-generation Cine camera with an ultra-wide angle and free-form lens, which helps make pictures less distorted and creates better-looking portraits.

The Mate 40 series also comes with optical image stabilization (similar to Huawei’s P40 Pro) and has a maximum optical zoom of 7x. On the other hand, the Mate 40 Pro Plus is capable of a maximum optical zoom of 17x with 100x digital zoom. The camera also has a dedicated depth sensor, one of the rarest types of dual-camera systems. This is also useful for face unlock and hands-free gesture navigation. 

If you love selfies, then you must get your hands on Huawei’s Mate 40 series phone case with a built-in LED ring light as you can get that picture-perfect selfie even in low light. More than that, the light automatically charges when it’s not in use because of its reverse wireless charging feature.

Modem and Speakers

Huawei is also the first to offer 5nm chipsets with an integrated 5G modem. This is great news because the built-in modems save on power usage, cost, battery life, and even space. And when it comes to speed, 5G undoubtedly provides higher uploads and downloads, too.

The EMUI 11 brings several improvements, such as a more user-friendly multi-window interface, customizable always-on options, useful AI gesture controls, and even support for Huawei’s upgraded Multi-Screen Collaboration feature with the ability to interact with multiple apps at the same time!

Gamers will also love the Huawei Mate 40 series. It comes with stereo speakers that have a 150% stronger bass response and an x-axis linear motor for better haptic response during gaming.

Battery Life

When it comes to battery life, the regular Huawei Mate 40 has a 4,200mAh battery and a 40-watt wired charging. Unfortunately, the regular Mate 40 does not support wireless charging.

Meanwhile, for both the Mate 40 Pro and Mate 40 Pro Plus, they have a 4,400mAh capacity that can charge up to 66 watts and they support 50-watt wireless charging and reverse wireless charging as well.

Last but not least, you don’t have to worry about getting caught in the rain as the Mate 40 series has an IP68 rating, meaning it’s waterproof!


If you’re particular about the phone color, you can choose from Mystic Silver, White, Black, Green, and Yellow for the Mate 40 and Mate 40 Pro. For the Pro Plus and Porsche Design models, you can opt for Ceramic Black or Ceramic White.
