Additionally, the Twitter post also reveals that the series will be launched at 14:00 CEST (Central European Summer Time). This is 5:30 pm Monday as per the Indian Standard Time (IST).

On the other hand, the Mate 30 Pro price started from €1099 and the 5G variant started from €1199. The Mate 40 Series is also expected to be priced around these tags but, it won’t be surprising to see them come with more expensive price tags.

Going by the rumors, the Huawei Mate 40 and Mate 40 Pro will come with great rear camera setups. The Mate 40 will have a triple rear camera setup including a 50-megapixel sensor, 20-megapixel ultra-wide sensor, and an 8-megapixel telephoto sensor. Meanwhile, the Huawei Mate 40 Pro might come with a 50-megapixel wide-angle sensor and an 80-megapixel Cine sensor quad camera setup. However, these are based on rumors and previous leaks and have not been confirmed by the company yet.
Moreover, the Huawei Mate 40 will reportedly feature a 6.4-inch or a 6.67-inch display. Additionally, we might also see a high refresh rate of 90Hz on a curved display.
Nothing has been revealed on the processor front but both the Huawei Mate 40 Series devices are said to come with a 5nm chip. The chip is expected to be the Kirin 9000 but, nothing is for sure yet.
Huawei is right up there when it comes to premium devices and the Mate 40 series is no different. However, nothing can really be said about the series as little to nothing is known about it. Hopefully, the specifications of the smartphones will be revealed in the coming days.
