The Huawei Mate 40 series comes in two variants – the Mate 40, Mate 40 Pro, and the Mate 40 Pro+. The vanilla version comes with a 6.5-inch Flex OLED panel, while the Mate 40 Pro and Mate 40 Pro+ comes with a larger 6.76-inch Flex OLED display.
The screens boast a 90Hz refresh rate and 240Hz touch sampling rate. Huawei says that they could’ve packed the phones with 120Hz panels, but for a battery life, they’ve opted for the 90Hz screen instead, which offers better balance.
Under the hood, all three models sport a Kirin 9000 chipset, which is a 5G chip that’s built on a 5nm architecture. The module packs a Mali-G78 24-core GPU which Huawei claims offer 52% more performance than before.
