Review Huawei Mate 40 Pro+ – The Mate 40 Pro + comes packing a 6.76-inch diagonal Flex OLED panel with 88 degrees curved edges which is steeper than the Mate 40 which only reaches 68 degrees.
This time, Huawei uses a punch-hole design to provide a screen resolution of 1,344 x 2,772 pixels and DCI-P3 HDR. There’s also a 90Hz refresh rate and 240Hz touch sampling rate which provides a smoother experience.
Huawei Mate 40 Pro + we get a 1 / 1.28 inch 50 megapixel main camera that has a pixel size of 1.22µm with an f / 1.9 lens along with optical image stabilization (OIS) support and a Laser autofocus system for fast and accurate focus locking.
Next up is the latest generation 20 megapixel Cine camera (ultrawide angle) with f / 1.8 featuring a free-form lens plus a 12 megapixel 125mm telephoto periscope lens. It’s an f / 3.4 aperture that offers 5x optical zoom and has OIS support.
For the main camera, there is still a 50 megapixel lens in addition to the 20 megapixel Cine camera. ToF Camera is another addition that the Huawei Mate 40 Pro + has for depth sensing and LED flash as a complement.
The rear camera on Huawei’s latest flagship smartphone is capable of recording 4K video at 60fps and slow-motion at 1080p resolution at 480fps. There’s also a 3,840fps mode which lets you shoot videos at 720p resolution, and more.
Apart from the back, the front camera of the Mate 40 Pro duo is no less interesting. Both carry 13 megapixel selfie cameras which are quite adept at shooting videos with the ability to do 4K video at 60fps and slow-mo 1080p at 240fps.
Accompanying the selfie camera which is placed in a small hole in the corner of the screen, there is a 3D depth-sensing camera sensor which is useful for motion gesture or face unlock and it has also been equipped with an ultrawide angle mode.
Huawei has entrusted the Kirin 9000 chipset to its flagship which they also recently released built on a 5nm process with an integrated 5G modem which is claimed to be the most powerful 5G processor in the world.
The Kirin 9000 has 15.3 billion transistors which is 30% more than the Apple A14 Bionic. The SoC carries a configuration of 1x Cortex-A77 cores offering a clock of 3.13GHz combined with 3x other Cortex-A77 cores and 4x Cortex-A55 efficiency cores.
Unlike the Kirin 9000E used by the Mate 40, the Kirin 9000 chipset gets a Mali-G78 GPU which has 24 cores and a 3 core 2 Big Core + 1 Tiny Core NPU.
Huawei also equipped it with 50W wireless SuperCharge and reverse wireless charging. But unfortunately that is not accompanied by an increase in battery capacity, the Mate 40 Pro + packs a 4,400 mAh battery.
Completing the specifications, we get stereo speakers combined with 3D audio, NFC support, dual-frequency GPS, and NavIC. Of course there is 5G connectivity along with Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.2.
