Huawei recently unveiled its new range of Mate 40 smartphones, which includes the premium Mate 40 Pro.
Like the previous generation Mate 30 Pro, the Huawei Mate 40 Pro offers cutting edge hardware available from the manufacturer.
It does feature a number of improvements, however, including the addition of 5G network support via its powerful Kirin 9000 chipset.
Unlike the previous generation Mate 30 Pro, the Huawei Mate 40 Pro runs Android with Huawei Mobile Services instead of Google Mobile Services, which means apps can come from Huawei AppGallery instead of the Google Play Store.
There is currently no launch date or South African price available for this new smartphone, but it is priced at € 1,199 internationally.
Huawei provided us with its new Mate 40 Pro to try it out, and we were blown away by the premium features of the premium device.
The Huawei Mate 40 Pro has a number of outstanding features including its powerful and futuristic rear camera and sleek curved display.
The 6.76-inch OLED panel almost completely wraps around the sides of the smartphone and sports a 90Hz refresh rate for super-smooth navigation.
An in-display fingerprint sensor is integrated below the display and it sports a perforated notch at the top for its 13MP front camera, which is paired with a 3D depth sensor.
On the back of the smartphone is its Space Ring camera system, which houses an impressive 50MP main lens, as well as 20MP and 12MP lenses.
It has 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB of internal storage, expandable via a NanoSD card.
All this powerful hardware is powered by a 4,400mAh battery that provides day long battery life and supports wireless and reverse charging.
After a first adjustment to Android with Huawei mobile services, we have found that the Huawei Mate 40 Pro offers an exceptional user experience thanks to its range of powerful features.
The rear camera is the smartphone’s strong point, delivering impressive Super Zoom photos and clear, high-resolution normal images.
It also offers excellent low-light photography and impressive 240FPS 1080p slow-motion video recording, which is a significant improvement over previous generations.
Another cool feature of the Huawei Mate 40 Pro is its updated Neural Processing Unit (NPU), which offers a range of very powerful artificial intelligence features in all the functionality of the device.
This includes gesture controls, which allow you to interact with your smartphone by performing hand gestures in view of the front camera.
Along with Wi-Fi 6 and 5G connectivity, the Mate 40 Pro also supports blazingly fast speeds when connected to Wi-Fi or a mobile network.
Other quality of life features include 66W fast charging, IP68 water and dust resistance, and support for wireless screen sharing with your PC.
