The Huawei Mate 40 was officially launched on 22nd October 2020. The phone goes for €900 or $1,069 for the 8GB RAM + 256 GB variant. The much-awaited smartphone features 5G connectivity but it doesn’t support Google Play Services for an obvious reason.
The phone has a really sleek & premium design and the circular rear camera module looks amazing especially in daylight conditions. The Mate 40 also features a 68-degree curved display and since it’s an OLED panel, everything looks really sharp even under direct sunlight. It is available in 5 colors; Mystic Silver, White, Black, Green, and Yellow, as shown in the image at the start of this post.

Under the hood, the Mate 40 is powered by an Octa-core Kirin 9000E 5G processor paired with a 22-core Mali-G78 GPU.
NOTE: It doesn’t support Google Play Services
The phone is available 2 variants; 8 GB RAM + 128 GB and 8 GB RAM + 256 GB. It has a Nano Memory card slot that supports memory cards of up to 256 GB, however, it uses a shared SIM slot. At the back, the phone features a 50 MP + 8 MP + 16 MP camera setup and a single 13 MP selfie camera at the front. When it comes to the battery section, the Huawei Mate 40 is powered by a 4200 mAh battery with 40W fast charging with no reverse charging or wireless charging
The phone also has IP68 dust and water-resistant. For those who don’t know, the IP68 rating means that a device guarantees protection in water up to 1.5 M deep for half an hour.
