Last year’s Huawei Mate 30 Pro was part of the select group of Android phones with secure facial recognition comparable to Apple’s Face ID. In return and, again, like Apple, it incorporated a wide notch in which to include the necessary sensor for facial recognition in 3D. There is no notch in the Huawei Mate 40 Pro, but dual perforation.
In this dual perforation the front camera is incorporated, as well as the TOF 3D sensor for facial recognition. This same sensor is used for other functions such as Eyes On Display, which keeps the screen on when you’re looking at it or gesture control.
In this way, the screen, which is formed by a panel, grows slightly 6.76 inch OLED and boasts a resolution of 2,772 x 1,344 pixels. Another addition of this generation is the refresh rate that is increased to 90 Hz. The screen, as in the previous generation, has a pronounced curvature on its edges.
Symmetrical design (at least behind)
The Huawei Mate 40 Pro inherits the design philosophy of its predecessor, although with some adjustments. In front the notch disappears and behind the circular module for the camera remains, although with a different design in a ring in which the lenses and the flash are distributed symmetrically. Four lenses for the Huawei Mate 40 Pro and five for the Huawei Mate 40 Pro +.
The camera is one of the few differences between the Huawei Mate 40 Pro and the Huawei Mate 40 Pro +. In both the main camera sensor is 50 megapixels and aperture f / 1.9, with a 20 megapixel wide angle, a 12 megapixel telephoto sensor for 5x optical zoom and a fourth ToF sensor, although the Huawei Mate 40 Pro + adds a fifth periscope telephoto lens, 8 megapixels and 10x optical zoom.
Ahead, as we saw before, there is also a double perforated trigger on screen in both models, with a 13 megapixel main sensor that doubles as a gesture sensor and a 3D depth sensor.
The most powerful Kirin
As usual, Huawei has mounted its most powerful processor to date in its high-end. The Huawei Mate 40 Pro debut the new Kirin 9000, the world’s first 5nm 5G processor and that, according to the measurements of the house, represents an extra 30% of CPU power and 50% in GPU compared to last year’s Kirin 990.
This processor is accompanied by 8 or 12 GB of RAM (depending on whether it is Mate 40 Pro or Pro +) and 256 GB of storage. The terminal loses a little of its battery capacity compared to the previous generation, with 4,500 mAh capacity, although it now includes fast charging of 66W, with support for wireless charging and reverse charging.
