This morning, Huawei announced the launch of the new Huawei Mate 40E. The latter comes with the Kirin 990E chip. The appointment will be officially opened today.
The Huawei Mate 40E uses a 6.5-inch 68° curved screen with a 2376 × 1080 resolution, a 90Hz refresh rate and a 240Hz sampling touch rate. It supports 16.7 million colors and DCI-P3 wide color gamut. You can choose from Mithril, Bright Black and Glazed White.
In terms of configuration, the Huawei Mate 40E sports the Kirin 990E 5G SoC chip and a built-in 4200mAh battery, which supports dual 40W wired and wireless super fast charging.
The Kirin 990 5G is the flagship 5G chip that Huawei previously launched on the Mate 30 series. It uses the world’s leading 7nm+ EUV process at the time. It has a native integrated 5G baseband with a smaller area and lower power consumption. The flagship SoC with the Vinci-based NPU has strong overall performance. There was a time when we got news the phone will use the Kirin 9000 chip. But as you know, the latter is in a short supply. So it’s logical not to appear on this handset.
In terms of cameras, the Huawei Mate 40E has a front 13-megapixel super-sensing camera (wide-angle, f/2.4 aperture), and a rear 64-megapixel wide-angle camera (f/1.9 aperture) + 16-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera (f/2.2 aperture) + 8-megapixel telephoto camera (f/2.4 aperture, OIS (optical image stabilization)). By the way, previously, the phone has been rumored to come with a 50MP camera, but now we see a 64MP, which is more pleasant.
As for pricing, the Huawei Mate 40E 8GB+128GB costs 4,599 yuan ($707) and the 8GB+256GB comes at 5,099 yuan ($784).
