As Huawei's new flagship phone, the Mate40 series is getting closer to us, the accuracy of the news we can get about the phone is increasing.
In terms of looks, Twitter tipster @onleaks recently shared a set of renders of the Mate40 and Mate40 Pro.
The renders reveal a dual-curved design on the front of the Mate40 series, with the screen curvature of the Mate40 Pro being larger than the Mate40.
The top left corner of the screen still has the same "capsule" gouge as the P40 series.
The Mate40 and Pro have rounded quad cameras on the back, three of which are likely to be primary, wide-angle and telephoto, with the last one likely to be a 3D ToF lens.
Moreover, the Mate40 series tempered film recently released by Weibo user @数码闲聊站 also proves from proving that the Mate40 series will indeed feature a curved screen design.
In addition to the screen, photos of the Mate40 series' center frame were also recently leaked.
Weibo user @松山湖深挖工程项目经理 recently posted a photo of a suspected Mate40's mid-frame.
It appears from the image that this Mate40 has a camera position that doesn't leave an opening and seems to be reserved for a 3D ToF lens.
In terms of configuration, numerous sources now believe that the SoC that the Mate40 series will be powered by is the Kirin 1020 processor, which is built on the 5nm process and uses the Cortex A78 architecture.
Thanks to the 5nm process, the Kirin 1020 is expected to accommodate 171.3 million transistors per square millimeter, giving it a 50% performance boost over the Kirin 990.
On the screen front, Twitter user @Teme claims that the Mate40 Pro will feature a UTD screen designed for foldable and ultra-curved display phones.
A list of phones that will feature 120 Hz high refresh rate screens in 2020, previously revealed by screen analyst firm DSCC, includes the iPhone 12 Pro series, Huawei Mate40, Asus ROG Phone 2, One Plus 8 Pro, and OPPO Find X2.
This also proves that the Huawei Mate40 series will likely come with a 120Hz high refresh screen.
In terms of the release date, there are reports that the Mate40 series may be delayed until the end of October, when it will be available in four variants: the Mate40, Mate40 Pro, Mate40 Pro+, and the Porsche Design Edition.
