Android version and market relevance

In October 2020 Huawei company introduced its new smartphone Huawei Mate 40. This is a new model with support for two SIM cards and 5G-network, which is running on 10.

If you think that for today such an android smartphone on the version 10 already outdated, then we advise you to look DROID-smartphones in our directory, where we collected a list of devices on the latest version of Android.

Screen, body and battery

Briefly describe the screen and the body of the smartphone. Huawei Mate 40 received OLED-screen measuring 6.5 inches. And this is a phablete, not just a smartphone. And, even if you liked this model, it′s far from the fact that it will be convenient for you to use it. Therefore, we advise you to hold it in your hands before buying. In addition to the screen size, it is also worth talking about the image refresh rate. 90 Hz is 90 updates per second of each pixel on the screen. Smartphones with a display refresh rate of 90 Hz were first announced in the premium segments (for example, the Google Pixel 4 model with a price of about $800). And later, similar characteristics appeared in smartphones in the middle price segment (for example, models from Xiaomi).

And now let’s move on to describing the dimensions of the case. The ratio of screen size to body size of Huawei Mate 40 is very high, so the screen takes up almost all the space from edge to edge (but a little bit lacking to the parameters of a frameless smartphone). In addition, there is a small hole at the top of the screen, which houses a selfie camera. Such a cutout significantly increases the usable area of the smartphone screen and even distinguishes the body design from other models. The thickness of the smartphone Huawei Mate 40 is 8.8 mm. This model, you can call “fat”, because today many smartphones with thinner cases are already being manufactured. And in such dimensions the engineers managed to put the battery on 4 200 mAh, and this is already the application for success and leadership in tests for the duration of the device from one battery charge.

Another of the features of the hull, we note that Huawei Mate 40 has dust, water protection. This model could become a flip smartphone and get into our catalog on a separate page, where all phones with flexible screens are collected. Unfortunately, this did not happen. And therefore, if you are interested in smartphones with such top-end characteristics, we advise you to look at them in our catalog and get a deeper understanding in which direction the entire mobile electronics industry is moving. Perhaps, in a couple of years, every second person on the planet will have such flip smartphones.

Main camera and selfie camera

The smartphone Huawei Mate 40 got the main camera with multiple modules (triple camera smartphones): 50 MP Wide + 8 MP Telephoto + 16 MP UltraWide. And there is also a front camera that has one module: 13 MP Wide. If you judge only by the number of megapixels, then the main camera is super-camera, which is installed in smartphones. But the frontcamera very good, which will surprise you with its high quality shooting of selfie. It seems that we have already written many times that before buying you need to see a smartphone and hold it in your hands. And speaking about cameras, I would like to repeat the same idea once again — look at the reviews about this model, see examples of photos taken by this smartphone. It often happens that in search of a low price, you buy a model with a camera of tens of megapixels, but the photos and videos will not be of high quality.

Processor and Internal Memory

A smartphone that always works fast, smoothly and does not overheat is a smartphone-dream! You can see how fast our Huawei Mate 40 works in video reviews, and now let′s talk briefly about the characteristics of the processor and memory. This model received 8-core processor on the chipset Kirin 9000 5G. The amount of RAM is 8 GB.

The built-in memory on which you will store photos, videos, music and all your data, has a volume of 128 GB.But there are versions with more memory on 256 GB. In addition, the smartphone supports memory cards Nano Memory up to 256 GB.

Price for Huawei Mate 40: buy or not to buy?

If you are looking for a camera phone, then Huawei Mate 40 is just what you need. If you need a smartphone with a huge touch screen, then this is just the real phablet! You can buy! If you are looking for selfie smartphone (smartphone with a very cool front camera for shooting selfie), then this is exactly what you were looking for. Do not pass by Huawei Mate 40, you should like it.

Let′s step back from the lyrics and talk about money. Selling Huawei Mate 40 will begin in November 2020 at a price of $900. There are analogues of this model from its price segment “Flagships smartphones from $500”, you can choose any smartphone for the same money.

We recommend buying a new smartphone only from trusted sellers. And preferably before buying the phone hold in your hand, to feel the dimensions of his hand and look at all of its external signs (build quality and materials). Then turn it on and check the touch screen (there should be no “broken” pixels, color gradient), open several built-in applications to assess the speed and smoothness of the interface. Be sure to launch the “Camera” application and take a few photos and videos, then view them (there should be no artifacts or traces of dust on the lens or glass).
