The Huawei Mate 40 series is highly anticipated. The series is known for bringing cutting-edge technology and this year will be no different. A leaker has revealed some key specs of the upcoming phones and it reveals that Huawei’s liquid lens camera technology will finally be commercially available.
The source of the leak is Teme (@RODENT950) who is known for his Huawei-related leaks. In a tweet posted a few days ago, he revealed the key specs of two of the phones in the series with the codenames “Ocean” and “Noah”.
According to him, “Ocean” which we believe is the standard Mate 40, will have a 6.67-inch curved display supplied by LG Display. The screen is said to have a 90Hz refresh rate. For its cameras, there is a 50MP main sensor paired with a 20MP ultrawide angle camera and an 8MP telephoto camera. The phone also has a laser autofocus module.
The other device which is codenamed “Noah” should be the Mate 40 Pro/Mate 40 Pro+. It is said to have a waterfall display that will be supplied by both LG Display and BOE. Just like the standard version, it will also have a 90Hz refresh rate, and under the hood is a Kirin 9000 processor.

For its cameras, the phone will also have a 50MP sensor with liquid lens technology. The liquid lens technology was patented by Huawei a few months ago. The technology allows for faster autofocus and better stabilization. Earlier reports thought that the feature will not appear in a phone until next year when the Huawei P50 launches but it appears Huawei already had it ready for the Mate 40 series before it was granted the patent. The leaker does say he doesn’t think the technology is ready for mass production, so we advise you to take the leak with a pinch of salt.
Alongside the 50MP sensor is an 80MP ultrawide angle Cine camera, a periscope lens, and a ToF sensor. The battery capacities for the Mate 40 series are also revealed as 4300mAh, 4600mAh, and 5000mAh. These should be for the Mate 40, Mate 40 Pro, and the Mate 40 Pro Plus respectively. The leak also mentions that the phone(s) has a pill-shaped hole in the display with (3D) Face ID.
