Before today, Huawei’s Mate 40 series had four smartphones (Mate 40, Mate 40 Pro, Mate 40 Pro+ & Mate 40 RS Porsche Design). Today, the company announced its fifth smartphone – The Mate 40E 5G and also a new variant for the Mate 40 RS Porsche Design.
The new Huawei Mate 40E 5G features a 6.5″ curved OLED screen. The display sports a Full HD+, 90Hz refresh rate, and a 240Hz touch sampling rate. Underneath the display is a fingerprint scanner for biometric security. The display has a punch-hole cutout on its top left corner which features a 13MP selfie camera.
The circular-shaped rear camera module of the Mate 40E 5G consists of four cameras. The main 64MP lens is accompanied by an 8MP telephoto lens with 3x optical zoom, a 16MP ultrawide lens and a macro lens with 2.5cm focus. As always, Huawei partnered with German-based camera company LEICA and the company brand name is inscribed inside the module.
