This time, Huawei launched four models which are Huawei Mate40, Huawei Mate40 Pro, Huawei Mate40 Pro+ and Huawei Mate40 RS Porsche designed and offered a variety of color versions to choose from.
This time, we started with Huawei Mate40 Pro Secret Silver version, which uses the glass body material with ground glass texture. Because it adds nine layers of optical coating film under the back-cover glass. The back shell of Huawei Mate40 Pro Secret Silver version will present different light and shadow effects with the change of light.
When I hold Huawei Mate40 Pro in my hand, the first feeling is that its body feels very smooth and round. And since its width is only 2.97 inches, there is no pressure for boys to hold the phone in one hand. One hand can cover most of the screen. As a result, Huawei Mate40 Pro with a 6.76-inch screen makes it comfortable to grip and handle.
This time, Huawei Mate40 Pro also uses the design of combining the physical volume button and virtual volume button. The physical volume button is located adjacent to the body and the power button, so that our users can choose the way to control the volume according to their using habits.
Recent generations of Huawei Mate series have always been unique in the design of the rear camera module, creating a trend-setting rear camera layout design. The newly released Huawei Mate40 series is no exception.
The rear camera module of Huawei Mate40 series is arranged in a “star ring” design.

According to what the official says, they drew inspiration from human exploration of the universe.
Hypercurved ring screen
Huawei Mate40 Pro inherits the screen design style of Huawei Mate30 Pro and also upgrades the screen.

Especially when you watch a video, there is an immersive visual experience.
Huawei Mate40 Pro has an OLED screen that supports a high refresh rate of 90Hz and a touch sampling rate of 240Hz. Thanks to the improvement of screen refresh rate, we can clearly perceive that the picture is clearer and the system UI animation effect is smoother when using Huawei Mate40 Pro. The improved touch sampling rate enables Huawei Mate40 Pro to have a faster screen response speed, which allows us to control the phone interface when swiping or playing games.
In addition, the virtual buttons on the side of the screen of Huawei Mate40 Pro can be used as volume buttons, as well as functions such as taking photos and playing shoulder keys.
The 5nm flagship SOC Kirin 9000 is coming
Among the many new features of Huawei Mate40 series, the most anticipated one is naturally the Kirin 9000 chip of Huawei Mate40 Pro. As the first mobile phone processor equipped with 5nm technology, Kirin 9000 has as much as 15 billion + transistors, a three-stage energy efficiency architecture with one super-large core, three large cores and four small cores and a 24-core Mali-G78 GPU cluster. It is a mobile phone Kirin chip with excellent performance and energy efficiency.
Kirin 9000 chip also integrates Huawei’s new generation NPU, 5G baseband and Huawei’s most advanced ISP technology, which has made great upgrades in AI computing, 5G rate and photographic computing power. Due to the limited time for this experience, we cannot bring you the performance test of Kirin 9000 chip. However, we can get a glimpse of the powerful performance of Kirin 9000 chip through the imaging capabilities of Huawei Mate40 Pro.
Huawei Mate40 Pro supports 66W wired superfast charge and 50W Huawei Wireless superfast charge, as well as wireless reverse charging. It also has a cool 3D superfast charge effect when using 66W one. Huawei Mate40 Pro box is attached with Huawei SuperCharge, USB Type-C data cable and type-C wired headset, which is very comfortable to use.
