Just as the previous news broke, the release time of the Huawei Mate40 series is not unexpected. It is set at 14:00 on October 22nd, Central European Daylight Time, which is exactly 20 o’clock on October 22nd, Beijing time. The theme of the press conference was the poster of Leap Further Ahead. Huawei’s consumer business CEO Yu Chengdong officially announced the news on his Weibo, and Huawei’s terminal official Weibo also followed up and confirmed.
Not long ago, Yu Chengdong promised that the much-watched Mate40 new machine will arrive as scheduled. Now this flagship model equipped with the Kirin core 9000 series, following the iPhone12 series, will finally meet us. With the confirmation of the release time of the Mate40 series, the ultimate battle of the flagship aircraft in the second half of the year will officially kick off in October.
According to known news, the entire Huawei Mate40 series will adopt a double-drilled curved screen in the upper left corner, which is the same design as the P40 series, but I don’t know if the digging this time will be slightly smaller. In addition, according to the previously exposed film, Mate40 will abandon the previous straight screen design and switch to a curved screen, while Mate40 Pro uses a more curved “waterfall screen”. At the same time, the power button that was cut off on the Mate30 series is also Will return.
There is no very precise news about its specific screen size, but from the previously exposed film, Mate 40Pro will be slightly longer than Mate40, and it is expected to be about 6.8 inches. In terms of refresh rate, it was previously reported to be 90Hz, but there are It is reported that a 120Hz screen will be used. The front design of the oversized Mate 40Pro+ should be consistent with the Pro version. The main difference will be the camera configuration.
The imaging system has always been the advantage of Huawei’s P series and Mate series flagship machines. According to the current exposure news, Huawei Mate40 will be equipped with three cameras, namely a 50-megapixel main camera, a 20-megapixel ultra-wide-angle, and an 8-megapixel telephoto. Its 50-megapixel main camera should be the same IMX700 as the Huawei P40 series. Its sensor size reaches 1/1.28 inches, the unit pixel reaches 1.22μm, and the four-in-one can reach 2.44μm single pixel.
Maybe it is so?
Huawei Mate 40Pro will be equipped with four cameras, namely a 50-megapixel main camera, an 80-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens, a periscope telephoto lens, and a ToF lens. This exaggerated 80-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens is used to replace the previous 40-megapixel movie lens, which will continue to strengthen the strength of Huawei Mate 40Pro in video shooting. The oversized Mate 40Pro+ will add another lens to the Mate 40Pro.
Although there are many speculations about the camera parameters of the Mate40 series, the result should be inseparable. In stark contrast is the arrangement of its lenses. I have to say that Huawei’s secrecy is really strong this time. So far, we have not had a clearer spy photo showing how the rear lens group of this series of mobile phones is.
The strongest Kirin 9000 chip may be out of print
In terms of core, the industry’s first 5nm 5G Soc with integrated 5G baseband, Kirin 9000, is correct. However, there is little news about this chip. Only the 5nm process 5G baseband integrated chip can be confirmed. Of course, the performance will be improved a lot compared with the previous generation Kirin 990 5G SoC chip. However, foreign sources said that the Kirin 9000 series will have two versions, the Kirin 9000 and the Kirin 9000E. The Kirin 9000E is a down-conversion version, and the performance will be slightly worse.
Due to the US ban, TSMC will no longer be able to supply Huawei on September 14, so the number of Kirin 9000 chips is limited, and mobile phone sales are naturally limited to the number of chips. There is no continuity in the short term, and it is really just buying one. The rhythm of one less Taiwan will inevitably make the Mate40 series face difficult to buy after the release.
Finally, Huawei’s Mate40 series will also launch 66W super-fast charging (does not confirm whether it is fully equipped). The series has a total of 4 models, namely Mate 40, Mate 40 Pro, Mate 40 Pro+, and Mate40 RS Porsche Design Edition.
Summary: The swan song of Huawei’s high-end flagship?
Compared with the P series flagship phones in the first half of the year, the Mate series flagship phones released in the second half of the past two years are the true Huawei flagship phones of the year, and they are also the strongest competitors of the iPhone phones released almost at the same time. The strongest Kirin chip blessing, and the strongest imaging system that Huawei is proud of. However, this year, affected by the continuous ban in the United States, Huawei’s mobile phone business line has suffered an unprecedented crisis. The first is its core Kirin chip production business. Industry giants such as TSMC and Samsung cannot produce self-made products for Huawei without obtaining a license. Kirin chip researched.
Although the current overall environment is very unfavorable for Huawei’s mobile phone business, Huawei itself will certainly not give up and has been working hard to achieve technical blockades and restrictions. At this special moment, we can only silently bless and look forward to Huawei mobile phones. The business can achieve greater breakthroughs in adversity. I hope that this time the Mate40 series flagship machine will not be the swan song of Huawei’s high-end flagship machine.
Going back to the product itself, the new Mate40 series will undoubtedly be one of the most worth buying 5G flagship machines this year. In addition to the chip and image capabilities, we also look forward to the Mate40 series can bring us more surprises. Stay tuned for October 22 At the global press conference at 8 o’clock in the evening, we will also bring the full live broadcast of the press conference, so stay tuned!
