Yesterday, Huawei launched the Mate 40 Pro and Mate 40 Pro +. The company has a habit of launching two top series annually, and Mate has been released in the autumn.
Due to the American boycott of the company, which has resulted in them not being allowed to use Google’s service platform, they have had difficulties with sales in the West while building their own service platform.
Whether the new mobiles will come to Norway has not been decided, but they will sell as hot wheat bread in China and other countries in Asia.
The Mate 40 Pro has already been named the best camera phone that DXOMark experts have ever tested. It tops the scale of both the rear cameras and the selfie camera. We can not remember that any new phone has taken both gold medals at the same time before.
DXOMark concludes that the camera setup is quite similar to what was launched in the P40 Pro this spring, but with some minor changes. Much of the improvement that has brought the model to the top, in fact by a good margin to the next on the list (which is the Mi 10 Ultra), is also due to the software that has been further developed and which beats the P40. While the Mate 40 Pro gets a new top rating of 136 on the camera and 104 on the selfie camera, the Xiaomi manages 133 and 83.
With a 5X optical zoom periscope-mounted telecamera, they focus on the same optical magnification as the Samsung Note S20. But it does not stop there. Huawei also releases a Pro + version of the Mate 40, in the same way as they came with the corresponding plus model of the P40 Pro, which had 10X optical zoom. It gets the Mate 40 Pro + as well. In the form of a telecamera with 3X zoom and another with 10X periscope-mounted zoom. We tested the P40 Pro + this summer and have never seen such sharp images so far.
Just a few days after Apple released the new Iphone 12, with the world’s first processor made in 5 nm technology, Huawei now comes with one in the same structure width. But, while Apple’s version had the record for a while with 11.8 billion transistors, the new Kirin 9000 will have 15.3 billion. The processor also has the 5G modem built into the chip, which makes things faster.
The screen is at 90 Hz which makes the movement more fluid, a technology that surprisingly did not come in the Iphone this time.
How good it is for the phone should be unsaid, but in the Mate 40 Pro and Pro +, the world’s fastest charger is also included. One watt more than recently launched the OnePlus 8T which had the new record of 66 watts.
As if that were not enough, the phones can charge wirelessly with 50 watts, as well as reverse charge other phones or watches with a full 5 watts.
Compared to the P40 models, the phones have a slightly larger battery of 4.4 Ah.
And the price? We know nothing about it. If it comes, it will definitely be cheaper than what Apple and Samsung want for their tops.
One, – no, two more things
In the absence of sales opportunities in the West, Huawei fills in with several new product categories. Now comes earphones with active noise reduction and a new, small speaker, Huawei Sound, which they produce, but which is designed by French Devialet.
