Earlier today, we learned that Huawei has postponed the launch of the Mate 40 series and will now launch by the end of October. That’s more than ten weeks away, but we don’t have to wait until then to see what the standard Mate 40 looks like. The popular leaker, Steve Hemmerstoffer a.k.a. OnLeaks has revealed what the upcoming flagship looks like.
The leaker has partnered with the blog HandsetExpert for the exclusive leak which doesn’t include a video this time around.
Huawei has made some significant changes to the design of the Mate series. The new Mate 40 will have a pill-shaped punch hole at the left corner of the display for two front-facing cameras. The cut-out looks longer and slimmer than that of the Huawei P40.
The Huawei Mate 40 has a curved display that measures 6.4-inches. At the top are a number of holes which include two for the microphones. There is a bigger one that appears to be an audio jack while another that is shaped like a pill might be the IR sensor.
Huawei has revamped the cookie camera housing for the Mate 40. Unlike that of the Mate 30 series that slopes, this one doesn’t. It is also much bigger but still houses three rear cameras. The position of the LED flash has remained unchanged.
The Mate 40 is shown to have a USB-C port at the bottom that is flanked by a speaker grille on one side and a microphone on the other. The dimensions of the phone are given as 158.6 x 72.5 x 8.9 mm (10.4mm with the camera bump).
When the Mate 40 launches, it will come with EMUI 11 out of the box along with HMS. It should also have support for fast wired and wireless charging, an in-display fingerprint scanner, and 5G.
