This fall, Huawei is expected to unveil its new Mate 40 and Mate 40 Pro. While leaks on these products are very rare today, the leaker OnLeaks has partnered with the sites HandsetExpert and Pricebaba to publish 3D renderings of the future star smartphones of the Chinese brand, created from virtual models dedicated to factories. In view of the design of these new devices, it’s a safe bet that the photo will once again be in the spotlight.
A massive camera module
Introduced last year with the range Mate 30, Huawei’s circular camera module should make its return with the 2020 generation. Wider and thicker this year, the latter should contain four giant photo sensors. P40 Pro. Their characteristics are still unknown but the appearance of these modules lets us think that the Mate 40 will have an ultra wide-angle, a telephoto lens and a ToF sensor in addition to its main camera while the Mate 40 Pro will be the most spoiled with a periscope zoom and an additional sensor whose function we do not yet know (perhaps a telephoto lens with a zoom level lower than the periscope?).
At the front, the two devices should be entitled to a dual camera module hidden in an ultra thin punch … but ultra wide. Hopefully, the second sensor is ultra wide-angle (for group selfies) and not depth measurement.
Any other leaks soon?
The months of September and October approaching, the Mate 40 should be talked about in the coming weeks. OnLeaks understands that the classic model will feature a curved 6.4-inch OLED panel while the Pro version will be entitled to 6.7 inches. On the other hand, we are in total vagueness at the level of the characteristics. Based on the habits of the Chinese manufacturer, we can already imagine that the successor to the Kirin 990 processor will equip these devices. On the other hand, on the software side, it is unlikely that Donald Trump will lift the American embargo given the current geopolitical context. It will therefore be necessary to do without Google. Given the number of ads for the AppGallery, this prospect does not seem to scare Huawei.
