Huawei will hold its Mate 40 series event today but at this point we have a very good idea of what to expect.
Now let's add to that a few details about the rumored revamped Mate 30 Pro, which according to Ishan Agarwal will be called Mate 30E Pro. Apparently the only change from it and the Mate 30 Pro from 2019 is the chipset - the Mate 30E Pro uses a Kirin 990E. We are yet to learn what differences that will make, however.
We also got the details about the Mate 40 RS Porsche Design, it will come in three colors - Ceramic White, Ceramic Black and Collector Edition.
And some Mate 40 Pro+ and RS Porsche Design specs and we've got an almost complete picture. We'll focus on the details we didn't already knew. The display will have 90Hz refresh rate with 240Hz touch sampling. The Mate 40 Pro+ will weigh 230g, while the RS 234g.
Charging will be done at 66W and a full charge will be completed in just 47 minutes. There's 50W wireless charging and 5W reverse wireless charging. The new Mate 40 Pro+ will also be IP68 certified and have an IR sensor.
Cameras are interesting. Ishan Agarwal has listed 4 main cameras - a 50MP f/1.9 main camera, 12MP f/2.4 telephoto, 8MP f/4.4 10x periscope and a 20MP f/2.4 "movie cam", which could be the ultrawide. So that's a main cam, two telephoto cameras and possibly a new ultrawide.
We'll have to wait a few more hours for the full information to become official along with pricing and availability details.
