Huawei on Thursday launched the Mate40 series, the company's latest flagship smartphones with 5nm 5G Kirin 9000 flagship chip.
The Huawei Mate40 series is powered by the new 5nm 5G SoC Kirin flagship chip, which delivers faster, lower heat and more energy-efficient operation.
The Huawei Mate40 series, known as the most powerful Mate ever, comes in four models: the Mate40, Mate40 Pro, Mate40 Pro+ and the Mate40 Porsche Design.
The Huawei Mate40 still follows the "waterfall screen" design, front dual camera, screen resolution of 2,772x1,344, pixel density of 456 PPI, with 6.76-inch AMOLED large dome screen.
The four models of the Huawei Mate40 come with different back camera designs: a circular triple shot, a circular quad shot, a circular quad shot and an octagonal palace window hexapod (with ToF).
The Huawei Mate40 Pro packs a 4,500 mAh battery that supports 65W single-cell fast charging and 40W wireless fast charging and can be fully charged in less than an hour. In addition, the Huawei Mate40 series also supports wireless charging and wireless reverse charging.
Huawei Mate40 with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage sells for €899. The 8GB+256GB version of the Huawei Mate40 Pro is priced at €1,199. The Huawei Mate40 Pro+ handset is available for €1,399 for the 12GB+256GB version.
Huawei has officially released the Kirin 9000 and Kirin 9000E SoC 5G chips, which use a new 5nm process to bring faster, lower heat and more energy-efficient operation experience.
Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei's consumer business, introduced that the Kirin 9000 chip integrates 15.3 billion transistors, 30% more than the Apple A14.
The Kirin 9000 chip uses an octa-core CPU, 24-core Mali-G78 GPU, 2 big cores + 1 small core NPU, and integrates Huawei's most advanced ISP technology.
The Kirin 9000 is manufactured using a 5nm EUV TMSC process with an integrated 5G Balong 5000 modem.
The SoC has an 8-core CPU split into 1x Cortex-A77 @ 3.13 GHz + 3x Cortex-A77 @ 2.54 GHz + 4x Cortex-A55 @ 2.05 GHz.
The most important part is the graphics, with the Mali-G78 GPU featuring 24 cores. All this is accompanied by a new NPU of 2 "big cores" + 1 "small core" with LPDDR5 and LPDDR4X memory controllers and UFS storage.
The Kirin 9000E will also arrive with a 22-core GPU and 1+1-core NPU.
Huawei claims that the Kirin 9000 is the most complex and powerful SoC 5G chip to date.
The Huawei Mate 40 series is based on the powerful performance of the Kirin chip and is equipped with the new EMUI 11 intelligent system to achieve 36 months of long-lasting smooth use.
