Huawei has quietly listed the Huawei Mate 40 Pro 4G and Huawei Mate X2 4G in Huawei China’s official website, hinting on their official launch in the home market.
Just like the Huawei P40 4G which was launched back in February this year, their specs remain unchanged except for the lack of 5G connectivity. The 4G variants, as usual, are expected to be priced slightly lower than their 5G counterparts.
Huawei Mate 40
As a quick recap, the Huawei Mate 40 Pro (Review) features a 6.76-inches OLED display that comes with an immersive 1,344 x 2,772 pixels screen resolution and a smooth 90Hz screen refresh rate.
In the camera department, the Huawei Mate 40 Pro arrives with a triple camera system consisting of a 50 megapixels (f/1.9 aperture) Super Sensing Wide sensor with OIS stabilization, 20 megapixels (f/2.4 aperture) ultra-wide cine camera that features a free form lens to minimize distortions, as well as a 12 megapixels periscope telephoto lens. This will be rounded out by a pair of 13 megapixels primary shooter and a 3D ToF sensor at the front.
Under the hood, the Huawei Mate 40 Pro is powered by the Kirin 9000 4G chipset manufactured under a 5nm process. Featuring more than 15.3 billion transistors, the Kirin 9000 chipset is able to achieve a peak frequency of up to 3.13 GHz which is relatively higher than the current Snapdragon 865+ SoC.
To keep the device running, the Mate 40 Pro is equipped with a respectable 4,400mAh battery which supports an upgraded 66W Huawei SuperCharge fast-charging solution. Taking things further, the device also support an incredible fast 55W wireless charging as well.
Huawei Mate X2
Coming to the Huawei Mate X2, we will be greeted by an external 6.45-inches OLED display which offers an impressive 2,700 x 1,160 pixels screen resolution, as well as a smooth 90Hz screen refresh rate and 240Hz touch sampling rate.
When unfolded, the inner screen measures 8-inches diagonally and boasts a 2,480 x 2,200 pixels screen resolution. While the inner display retains the same 90Hz screen refresh rate, its touch sampling rate settles at a slightly lower 180Hz touch sampling rate.
Over at the back, the Huawei Mate X2 sports a powerful quad-camera system lead by a powerful 50MP RYYB main camera with OIS stabilization and support for 4K video recording.
Moving on, there’s also an 8 megapixels periscope camera with 10x optical zoom and OIS stabilization, as well as a 12 megapixels telephoto camera with 3x optical zoom and OIS stabilization. Overall, the device is able to achieve up to 20x hybrid zoom and 100x digital zoom.
The forth camera will be a 16 megapixels ultra-wide module which also doubles as a macro camera for highly-detailed close up shots. Finally, the secondary display (on the outside) also has a 16 megapixels shooter for selfie and video-calling purposes.
At the helm, the Huawei Mate X2 is powered by the flagship HiSilicon Kirin 9000 chipset which is also found in the Mate 40 Pro (review). In the memory department, there’s 8GB RAM as well as an option between 256GB or 512GB storage capacity. Keeping its lights on is none other than a respectable 4,500mAh battery with 55W fast-charging support.
