Huawei Mate 40 Pro Review

Why This Model Leads the 5G Smartphone Space

Manufacturers are packing in new designs, improved hardware and even updating all the software, trying to provide users with new features and experiences. However, the HUAWEI Mate 40 Pro is still here and thanks to its futuristic and user-friendly features, and powerful hardware-software synergy part of Huawei’s connected ecosystem, it still stays on top as the 5G flagship king. Let’s take a look.


Sure, everyone is moving to the 5G bandwagon, and we can expect the same from the upcoming flagship launches. However, it is not to be forgotten that Huawei raised and set the bar for 5G smartphones with its Kirin 9000 chipset. The world’s first 5nm 5G chipset, complete with the 5G modem built into it, offers users the ultimate in 5G performance, incredible power efficiency and connectivity features.

The HUAWEI Mate 40 Pro also stands out in terms of design with its iconic Space Ring design. This new Space Ring not only serves the functional purpose of placing the camera module, but it complements the colour finishes of the HUAWEI Mate 40 Pro which changes its looks in the ambient light. It also boasts a massive 6.76-inch OLED HUAWEI Horizon Display with an 88-degree curve that is both unique in terms of design and immersive in terms of the visual experience.

With everyone whipping out their smartphones to take a picture or record a video now, it’s no surprise that smartphone manufacturers are building powerful camera systems into their flagship devices.

The HUAWEI Mate 40 Pro comes with the stellar Ultra Vision Cine Camera setup, which consists of a 50MP Super Sensing Wide Camera, a 20MP Ultra Wide Cine Camera, a 12MP Periscope Telephoto Camera that supports 5x optical zoom, 10x hybrid zoom and 50x digital zoom and a laser sensor for fast autofocusing. Users also get innovative videography features such as real-time HDR videos, Steady shots for stabilization, Tracking shots, Story Mode and more. Upfront, users get a 13MP Ultra Vision Selfie Camera and a 3D Depth Sensing Camera that shoots in 4K. This setup also supports Slow-Motion Selfies which are captured at 240fps at 1080p.

Battery performance is also key to what makes a great flagship: the HUAWEI Mate 40 Pro not only packs a large 4400 mAh battery but also supports 66W HUAWEI Wired SuperCharge or the 50W HUAWEI Wireless SuperCharge. The best part? The charger is provided in the box itself!

However, it’s not just the hardware that makes the HUAWEI Mate 40 Pro a true 5G flagship king. It comes with EMUI 11, which brings to the table a wide range of innovative features that completely alter the smartphone experience. For example, users don’t have to physically touch the phone to control it and simply wave their hand to scroll and answer calls all thanks to AI Gesture Control. Huawei also upgrades the traditional Always-On-Display to its new Eyes-On-Display, which only turns on when users look at it, thus saving battery life. Additionally, this feature also allows users to reduce incoming call volume by just looking at the phone when the phone rings. EMUI 11 also brings in a wide range of privacy and security features that ensure maximum protection for important user data from theft or even during online browsing.

Another aspect that makes the HUAWEI Mate 40 Pro stand out is how it interacts with other devices in the HUAWEI ecosystem. As a part of the HUAWEI AI Seamless Life and by being connected under one HUAWEI ID, it ensures maximum interconnectivity between devices and services. Additionally, features like Multi-Screen Collaboration and Multi-Window, enhance productivity by seamlessly streaming the smartphone display on compatible HUAWEI MateBook laptops, allowing for easier control, drag and drop file transfer and even running multiple apps side by side in separate windows. Connectivity with other devices, like the HUAWEI FreeBuds Pro, HUAWEI WATCH GT 2 Pro Moon Phase Collection and more are seamless and can be done in a pinch, ensuring an immersive and all-connected experience like never before.

What makes a smartphone a flagship king is more than just powerful specifications. It takes the synergy of both hardware and software, with features that are designed to provide what users would need the most, ensuring a better, safer and secure user experience overall. The HUAWEI Mate 40 Pro, along with its connected ecosystem and EMUI 11 on board, provides exactly this, making it a true 5G flagship smartphone king.
