As Huawei prepares to unveil its new flagship this Thursday, WinFuture has just got its hands on its entire technical sheet and gives us a lot of details about the Huawei Mate 40 Pro. On the menu, an ultra-powerful processor, extraordinary photo capabilities and a magnificent screen, but still no Google services.

Huawei is currently showing great composure. Despite the countless pitfalls in its path, from the inability to use Google's services to the cessation of production of its Kirin SoCs at TSMC, the firm will continue to launch its various ranges as if nothing has happened. was. So after the Huawei P40 Pro earlier this year, the brand is now preparing to lift the veil on its second premium smartphone of the year, the Huawei mate 40 pro. While only a few days separate us from its official presentation, scheduled for October 22 from 2 p.m. (French time), here is a major leak teaches us everything there is to know about the smartphone. WinFuture seems to have had access to the entire technical sheet: here is the summary!

According to late-breaking information from WinFuture, the Huawei Mate 40 Pro should be a beautiful piece of technology. First, we would find a curved 6.76-inch OLED panel with a resolution of 2772 x 1344 pixels. The fingerprint sensor would be well located under this panel, and there would also be a pill-shaped punch placed at the top left of the smartphone, as on the Huawei P40 Pro. WinFuture doesn't say whether or not the Mate 40 Pro will have a 90Hz or 120Hz refresh rate. We hope to at least find 90Hz like the P40 Pro earlier this year.

An SoC engraved in 5 nm, before Qualcomm

Inside, we will find the Kirin 9000 processor engraved in 5 nm (the second to be engraved with this fineness after Apple's A14). This SoC could be the last of the firm before a good time, the time that the firm finds another solution to have its chips burned elsewhere than at TSMC. This processor promises to be extremely fast with its eight cores, including four ARM Cortex-A55 cores and four Cortex-A77 cores. This SoC would be accompanied by the Mali G-78 chip for the graphics part, and we would find 8 or 12 GB of RAM depending on the configuration chosen. Finally, we would find a 4,400 mAh battery, which may not seem like a lot on a premium smartphone, but Huawei has largely accustomed us to optimizing the autonomy very aggressively on its previous devices. With a chip engraved in 5 nm, the Huawei Mate 40 Pro could be even more autonomous than its predecessors. In addition, we would also find wireless charging, but also ultra-fast 65W wired charging capable of fully replenishing the smartphone's battery in less than 45 minutes.

Still the master of photography?

But where Huawei excels is in its photo part. The Huawei Mate 40 Pro will be no exception and should have a muscular configuration including three sensors: a main module of 50 MP (f / 1.9), an ultra wide-angle of 20 MP (f / 1.8) and finally a telephoto lens allowing an X5 optical zoom of 12 MP (f / 3.4). The three sensors would be housed in a circular photo block, centered on the back of the smartphone, and there would also be a "laser" sensor that should drastically improve autofocus. WinFuture also specifies that the smartphone would be able to film in 8K. Up front, we would take advantage of two sensors: a 13 MP wide-angle and a 3D sensor to improve the bokeh effect on portraits and allow facial recognition.

The Huawei Mate 40 Pro would not be the first smartphone of the brand to switch to Harmony OS, but it could well be one of the last to use Android 10. As we could imagine, we would still not find the services from Google on this new device. All this remains to be confirmed next Thursday, October 22, the date of its official presentation!
