It’s just a matter of a couple of days before the Huawei Mate 40 series is revealed. The lineup will comprise four models allegedly: the Mate 40, Mate 40 Pro, Mate 40 Pro Plus, and Mate 40 RS.
For comparison, last year’s Mate 30 Pro was launched for €1,099 (~$1,293) and the Mate 30 RS Porsche Design went for CNY12,999 (~$1,945) in China.
Given that Huawei can neither make nor buy premium chips any longer, it could be a long time before we see another flagship series from the company.
Mate 40 series alleged camera specs
It looks like the standard Mate 40 will feature a triple camera setup.
The Mate 40 Pro is tipped to come with a 50MP main sensor, a 20MP ultra-wide unit, a 12MP module with 5x optical zoom, and a laser autofocus sensor. It is also expected to have a color temperature sensor.
The Mate 40 Pro Plus will reportedly have a 50MP primary camera, a 20MP ultra-wide sensor, two 8MP units, a laser autofocus sensor, and a color temperature sensor.
The RS is expected to have a similar camera setup as the Pro Plus, but it will swap out the laser autofocus unit for a Time of Flight (ToF) sensor. It will likely have a temperature measuring sensor too.
The Mate 40 series will seemingly go on sale in China on October 30. There is no word on international availability yet.
