Huawei Mate 40 Pro Review - All Information Here

Huawei Mate 40 Pro Unboxing Set

Huawei already unveiled a new advanced flagship smartphone called the Mate 40 Pro. To spite the enemies, Chinese engineers still managed to make their HiSilicon Kirin 9000 processor, built on a 5 nm technical process. So now the Kirin 9000 is one of the fastest chipsets in the world.




Huawei experts said that the Mate 40 Pro will work as long as possible without changing the functioning of the smartphone. Background processes are now handled even better, and if necessary, applications will be launched instantly.

The upgrade also touched the screen. Now it is 6.7 inches, and the resolution is 2772x1344 pixels. We also take a look at the refresh rate - 90 Hz.  So if a gadget is designed for a 90 Hz display, it means that it should work like that without any adjustments for any restrictions.

The cameras have also been upgraded here. While the Huawei P30 Pro and Mate 30 Pro shot very well, the Mate 40 Pro shoots even better. I was especially impressed with the work of the modules at night: in some difficult situations, the shutter speed does not even turn on, and you immediately get a bright frame in almost complete darkness.

This unit uses two speakers to create stereo sound: one speaker at the top, the other at the bottom.

They also conjured a little over the network adapter. The Mate 40 Pro comes with a 66W unit. This is a serious indicator. The device charges in less than an hour. Both wireless battery charging and reverse wireless charging of other devices remained here.

The smartphone received a new unusual design of the rear panel, the degree of protection remained the same - IP68.

In general, it turned out to be the most advanced smartphone on all fronts!

The Huawei Mate 40 Pro is priced at EUR 1,199  for the sole 8GB + 256GB variant and is offered in the same colours as the Mate 40. Lastly, the Huawei Mate 40 Pro+ comes in a single 12GB + 256GB variant that costs EUR 1,399 

An important addition: the material was written before the official presentation, so my technical characteristics may not coincide with those shown at the event.

Huawei Mate 40 Pro Design

It is worth noting and also I bleve that currently, smartphones are worth choosing for only two points: usability and appearance. The fact is that from a technical point of view, devices have long gone ahead. Finding a slow phone with a bad camera and a weak battery is extremely difficult, even among budget smartphones.

Huawei Mate 40 Pro Design


I want to say that the Huawei Mate 40 Pro meets the very requirements that I indicated above - comfortable and with an attractive design.

The coolest feature is the design of the camera block. It is on it that most manufacturers focus. While competitors are sculpting terrible rectangular humps of unrealistic sizes, Huawei's designers have made a neat round block that almost does not protrude from the body. Personally, it reminds me of a rotary dial in old phones. And you?

Another important thing is a memorable design. The new smartphone has received an impressive design if you are a Huawei lover and also you have a great knowledge of mobile phones than you agree with me

The frame is made of metal. Front side - glass with curved corners.

It should be understood that the smartphone is very large and heavy - 162.9 x 75.5 x 9.1 mm, 214 grams. However, it is convenient to use. Another issue is the screen rounding. Here everyone chooses for himself whether he likes this decision or not. But this rounding is not as strong as on the Mate 30 Pro.

Top of the front panel:

  • Two cameras and sensors for face unlock
  • Earpiece slot

Top of the front panel:

On the top end:

  • Microphone
  • Speaker holes
  • IR transmitter

On the bottom:

  • Slot for nanoSIM SIM card and NM memory card
  • USB-C
  • Speakerphone
  • Microphone

At the bottom:

On the right rib:

  • Red power button
  • Volume rocker key. It is located closer to the rear panel. 
  • Volume using a panel that appears by double tap on the left side edge.

On the right rib:

On the reverse side 

  • Flash consisting of two LEDs of different color temperature
  • 4 cameras
  • Microphone

Mate 40 Pro Display

Display6.7 inches, 2772x1344 pixels, OLED, 19.5: 9, notch, auto-brightness, Corning Gorilla Glass
60 Hz or 90 Hz

The main data are shown in the table above. From myself, I can add that there is an item in the settings where you can select a forced value of 60/90 Hz or trust the automation. I always choose the maximum. Well, why else do we buy such expensive devices? :)

Personally, I find it inconvenient to control some interface elements: for example, touch the extreme buttons on the keyboard (Y, X, "delete"), in Instagram, precisely adjust text or pictures, since "Back" is triggered.

Mate 40 Pro Display

However, the Huawei Mate 40 Pro has slightly reduced the rounding compared to the Mate 30 Pro. Looking forward to the Mate 50 Pro flat screen!

Mate 40 Pro Display

The display is large, the colours are pleasant, the brightness is high, the pixelation is invisible, the AOD is in its place. Plus, EMUI 11 features cool animated AOD screensavers.

Battery Timing

BatteryLi-Pol 4400 mAh
Qi wireless charger can charge other devices
66 W charger

As a rule, Huawei devices work for a very long time. The flagships show at least 5.5 hours of screen. Since I only have a couple of days with the Mate 40 Pro, I will not give you exact data. It takes at least a week for applications in the background to "understand" in what rhythm they should function. Accordingly, now the numbers may be unrealistically large, but after a month of working with the gadget, they will decrease by 20-30%.

Battery Timing

Will 90Hz drain the battery more? 

Yes, it will. If you are worried about this, then enable the dynamic change of the screen refresh rate in the display settings.

Performance & Memory & Software

Memory8 GB RAM, 256 GB internal 
memory ND card up to 256 GB

The RAM has a speed of 20,000 MB / s. A bit strange result. Should have been at least 28,000 MB / s. The 20,000 MB / s figure tells us that the RAM speed is slightly above average.

PlatformHiSilicon Kirin 9000 5nm: (1x3.13 GHz Cortex-A77 + 3x2.54 GHz Cortex-A77 + 4x2.04 GHz Cortex-A55) 
Mali-G78 MP24

This is Huawei's new chipset. Despite the sanctions, they managed to make and release the Kirin 9000 processor. It seems to me that with its help you can easily survive a couple of crises since the performance of the 9000 model is more than enough. In the Antutu test, the device is gaining space figures in the region of 700,000 points.

The smartphone is extremely smooth and fast. And here the trick is not so much in the "confidence" of the processor but in EMUI 11 and its polished animation. The Mate 40 Pro handles very smoothly with all its tasks.

Huawei Mate 40 Pro Design


Most likely, such data will have the final samples of Huawei Mate 40 Pro. Let me remind you that the material was written before the presentation so that you get a general idea of ​​the phone as early as possible.

I'll be brief. The cameras on the Huawei Mate 40 Pro are a fairy tale. Actually, because of them, people buy the Mate series of smartphones.

You will get a high-quality picture in any conditions. Moreover, in the novelty, the algorithms were tweaked so that the processing of night images was almost halved. With insufficient lighting, there is even no delay, that is, there is no shutter speed countdown.

The device shoots video at 4K 60 fps. There is no 8K resolution, and I consider such a resolution in smartphone cameras to be pampering. 

The camera software has object tracking. Automatic focus on a person, approach, distance. In addition, there is audio focus: the closer the zoom, the louder the sound at the point of shooting.

The camera interface has not undergone any changes.

Final Thoughts

Huawei has shown again who has an unusual and cool design. The device turned out to be recognizable, which is undoubtedly good.

Huawei Mate 40 Final thoughts


The rest of the parameters do not raise questions: the fastest Huawei processor, the highest quality cameras, an excellent screen with 90 Hz, stereo speakers, and so on.

Last year's Mate 30 Pro was a hit with those looking to get the most out of their smartphone. The current update with the Mate 40 Pro is quite successful. If I had a 30 Pro, I would definitely take a 40 Pro.

I would like to repeat once again that the date of the phone's appearance is still unknown. Most likely, it will appear before the end of the year. The price is unlikely to be significantly changed from the previous generation Plus a correction for the exchange rate. It seems to me that the cost will be EUR 1,199  for the sole 8GB + 256GB variant and is offered in the same colours as the Mate 40. Lastly, the Huawei Mate 40 Pro+ comes in a single 12GB + 256GB variant that costs EUR 1,399
