We have another round of CAD-based renders to look at today, and these are said to depict the upcoming Huawei Mate 40. However, we’re thinking this may be the Mate 40 Pro as well, or even the Mate 40 Pro+, as three versions of the flagship phone have been rumored – and such a strategy would emulate what Huawei’s done with the P40 family.
Anyway, let’s assume this is the vanilla Mate 40. It has a gigantic circular rear camera bump, that’s probably the biggest one we’ve ever seen. There are three cameras inside, with a fourth space seemingly empty, but that might be employing a LIDAR sensor like Apple’s new iPad Pros. Outside of the hump, we also get some huge LED flash action.
On the other side, the signature notch of past Mate series devices is gone, replaced by a P40 Pro-style elongated left-aligned hole-punch that was rumored to house a similar face unlocking system to the P40 device.
The display is definitely curved, but doesn’t seem to be as ‘waterfall-y’ as the Mate 30 Pro’s. According to the source of the renders, the Mate 40’s dimensions are 158.6 x 72.5 x 8.9 mm, while that goes up to 10.4 mm in the camera bump area. The screen diagonal is approximately 6.4″.
