On Sept. 3, Huawei will be taking off covers from the Kirin 9000 5G chipset that will be powering the upcoming Mate 40 series of flagship phones. The rumor mill has already spilled some vital information on the specs of the device. A reliable tipster from China has shared case images of the Mate 40 and Mate 40 Pro smartphones.
The case images of the Mate 40 series show that the Mate 40 and Mate 40 Pro smartphones are equipped with round-shaped cutout for the rear cameras. There are no dedicated cutouts for the LED flash which indicates that it will be lodged inside the camera module of the Mate 40 and Mate 40 Pro.
Viewing the top and bottom of the Mate 40 Pro’s case suggest that it could be equipped with stereo speakers. The Mate 40 case images also show that the phone has an identical camera design like the Pro model. However, it is speculated that the Pro model will have four cameras, whereas the vanilla variant will only feature three cameras.
The Mate 40 does not seem to feature stereo speakers. Rather, it seems to have a 3.5mm audio jack at the top edge. As far as the front of both phones are concerned, their leaked CAD renders have suggested that they will sport OLED panels with curved edges along with dual punch-hole design.
In related news, the model numbers of the Huawei Mate 40 series have appeared in TENAA’s database. It is speculated that OCE-AN00, NOH-AN00, and NOP-AN00 model numbers belong to the Huawei Mate 40, Mate 40 Pro, and Mate 40 Pro+ smartphones, respectively.
