Huawei Mate 40 Price in India

Huawei Mate 40 is launched in some global markets and is retailing for $1,067 which converts to ₹79,135 which is a lot for a smartphone in this day and age. There is still some speculation as to when Huawei is going to introduce this smartphone in the Indian smartphone market.

Huawei Mate 40 is an intelligently designed smartphone with an aluminium frame, a glass front, and a back made up of either glass or eco-leather depending upon the variant purchased. The front is all screen with a pill-shaped cutout for the front camera setup. The back has the quad-camera setup in a circular manner and the Leica branding in the centre of it and there is the Huawei at the bottom half of the device. We have the power and the volume buttons on the right side of the device. There are the USB Type C port and the loudspeaker situated at the bottom of the device.

The device is measured to be 8.8mm thick for the glass back variant and 9.2mm thick for the eco-leather back variant. The Mate 40 weighs in at around 188g for the glass back variant and 184g for the eco-leather back variant.

The display on the Huawei Mate 40 is a large 6.5-inch OLED 1080 by 2376 pixels which are HDR10 certified and is having 90Hz of refresh rate. The pixel density is high at 402ppi density while the screen has around 89.3% of screen-to-body ratio. There is an in-display fingerprint scanner which is very fast for unlocking the smartphone.

Huawei Mate 40 is powered by Huawei’s in-house Kirin 9000E 5G octa-core processor which is built on 5nm process and clocks up to 3.13GHz. The memory is handled by 8GB of RAM while 128GB or 256GB of UFS 3.1 storage is provided. The storage can be expanded via the hybrid microSD card slot provided.

The connectivity on the Huawei Mate 40 includes single or Dual SIM variants for the mobile network with support for 5G, Wi-Fi 6 with dual-band support and Bluetooth 5.2 with Low Energy capability. The Mate 40 also supports NFC for payments and other NFC-based tasks.

Biometrics on the Huawei Mate 40 is handled by the in-display ultrasonic fingerprint scanner which is quite fast.

The Mate 40 runs on Android 10 with Huawei’s EMUI 11 on top of it while the Google Play Services remain missing from the device.

The camera department on the Huawei Mate 40 is handled by the triple camera setup on the back and dual camera setup on the front.

The quad-camera setup consists of a 50MP wide sensor with omnidirectional PDAF and Laser AF for autofocus, an 8MP telephoto sensor with PDAF and up to 3x optical zoom, and lastly, we have the 16MP ultrawide lens with PDAF. All of the sensors on the rear camera setup are having Leica optics. The lighting is provided with the LED flashlight on the back of the device. The main camera is capable of up to 4K at 60fps video recording with gyro-EIS.

The front camera is having a 13MP ultrawide sensor with HDR and panorama built-in. The front camera supports video recording of up to 4K at 60fps.

Huawei Mate 40 Pro is powered by the 4200mAh battery which is fast charge capable of up to 40W of wired charging and up to 40W of wireless charging.

Huawei Mate 40 is a great smartphone with some great work of engineering put into it. The performance is great thanks to 5nm process node manufacture of the SoC and power consumption on 5G network is less, thanks to the integration of the 5G modem in the SoC itself. This brilliant piece of technology is only eclipsed by its high pricing in comparison with its rivals and most of all, the absence of the Google Play Services from the Mate 40. Now, Huawei has tried to make it work by having its own Appstore integrated into the Mate 40 but it still cannot fill in some gaps. But keeping the drawbacks aside, the Mate 40 is a premium smartphone with specs to match any other smartphone out there.
