Let’s be sincere, when the Huawei Mate 30 Series was launched year, it was by far the best mobile hardware out that time and still maintains the position as a top-tier device even up until now which is a fascinating thing and I was expecting a much more sophisticated super-cranked-up Huawei Mate 40 series which is part of the new revelations we’re getting now with the up and coming device.
The device is said to have already been in development and in recent times, there have been a series of reports regarding the Mate series even though we’re still months away from the actual release of the device. Even a popular leakster on Twitter @Rodent950 however made it known that the device will use the company’s next-gen Kirin 1000 chipset which uses the TSMC’s 5nm processor and will be launched by the Mate 40 series.
Other inside reports has it that the Kirin 1000 is codenamed “Baltimore” and uses a 5nm process as well as possibility of using the Cortex A78 architecture. The CPU and GPU will therefore be a much bigger upgrade from the previous model something which Huawei is known for all the time. There have in fact been rumors about the Kirin 1020 but that seems to be another one different from the one we’re talking about here.
The current Kirin 990 5G utilizes the Cortex A76 architecture and if the Kirin skips the A77 and just swerve towards the A78 architecture, the performance of the CPU and GPU will be a big improvement just that there aren’t much information to back this up just yet until there are much more official statements about it.
The Huawei Kirin flagship processor will arrive this fall hopefully alongside the Mate series and that will by no doubt place the models right at the helms of 5nm process processors which will definitely give it a edge over its competitors in terms of performance.
Another thing great about the Mate 40 series is that the device is being rumored to come in different variants such as the normal entry-level Mate 40 then the stepped up Mate 40 Pro and the luxury Mate 40 RS Porsche Deign and maybe there could be an addition we don’t just know about yet.
There have also been unofficial renders which are meant to give us a rough assumption about what to expect when the Mate 40 finally make it to the market by Fall. Based on the renders, the Mate 40 is said to come with a Penta rear setup which will consist of a quad camera sensors and one flash arranged in a matrix compartment. But then there is another camera right below the matrix with an “100x” inscription beside the lone camera suggesting it to being a telephoto lens due to it’s loneliness.
There seems to be a secondary display right beside the camera compartment which is being thought of as serving some purposes such as displaying time, power, Wi-Fi, Alarm clock and network signals. The sub-screen could also serve as a view finder just as the one on the Galaxy Z Flip.
If this is true about the Huawei Mate 40, it will be the first time we will be seeing such on a Huawei smartphone even though it’s not a new thing. Companies such as Meizu had tried it out with their Meizu Pro 7 before.
Other noticeable things about the Mate 40 series includes the use of a 3D curved display just as we saw on the Mate 30 Pro but this time around, there appears to be no hole-punch or even a notch but rumor has it that Huawei is stepping up the game a little bit by placing the camera right under the display…YEAH! Might sound much more like an exaggeration Yeah but this technology is possible because we’ve seen demos of it from Xiaomi in the past we just don’t know how soon smartphones will start utilizing this technology. But anyway, this are just mere rumors and so nothing is to be taken much serious about it
