After Huawei launched its P40 smartphones series, the attention is now directed to the company’s Mate 40 lineup. And as per smartphone analyst Ming Chi-Kuo, there are a number of predictions about the handset.
For starters, the smartphone series could launch sometime in September or later, which is also the regular launch time from for the Mate series. Now, there is a bump, the world has stopped due to the ongoing Covid-19 and this could also have a bearing on the launch date.
The Huawei Mate 40 series is expected to be powered by company’s own next-gen flagship processor – Kirin 1020, which has been branded as the codename– Baltimore. This phone will be made using TSMC’s 5nm manufacturing node and well, this is a step up from the Kirin 990 that powers the P40 series.
We cannot, however, be sure if the chipset will be made using N5 process or N5P. While the former is believed to deliver up to 15% better performance than 7nm chipsets with 30% power efficiency, the latter might well drop the power consumption by 15%. It has widely been tipped that Kirin 1020 may have Cortex A77 or Cortex A78 cores.
Now if we look at the cameras, the Mate 40 may have a ‘free-form’ camera design, which will improve the ultra-wide camera and hence, expunge all the distortions and aberrations. It will be rather interesting to see how Huawei takes care of it in the upcoming Mate 40.
Huawei P40 Pro has upped its game as far as cameras are concerned and it recently beat Apple iPhone 11 Pro Max and some other handsets to lead the race in the DxO Mark tests. As far as the results are concerned, the smartphone received a high score of 128, which is now followed by Oppo Find X2 Pro, Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro, Huawei Mate 30 Pro 5G and Honor V30 Pro.
