Huawei has announced the Mate 40 Pro and Pro Plus, its latest flagship devices following the P40 series from earlier this year. The phones mark the debut of Huawei’s new flagship 5nm Kirin 9000 chipset and include curved 6.76-inch 90Hz OLED displays and 50W wireless charging. Alongside them, Huawei has also announced the step-down Mate 40.
Although Huawei’s phones have been difficult to use outside of China because of the lack of Google’s apps and services, its recent flagships like the P40 Pro and P40 Pro Plus have continued to offer excellent camera performance. On paper, the Mate 40 Pro series looks to continue the trend.
The Mate 40 Pro Plus has a 50-megapixel main camera, a 20-megapixel ultrawide, an 8-megapixel periscope camera with a 10x zoom, and a 12-megapixel telephoto camera with a 3x zoom. In total, Huawei says the phone offers up to a 17x optical zoom.
