Huawei presents Mate 40 Series: Cameras
As with previous models from Huawei, a lot of attention has also been paid this time to the photo and video options on the device. At the back we find a ring with the cameras on it. The main camera has a large sensor to capture a lot of light and has 50 megapixels (f / 1.9). The second camera has an ultra-wide angle lens with twenty megapixels (f / 1.8). The telephoto lens (periscope) is also back with twelve megapixels. This time with 5x optical zoom, 10x hybrid zoom and 50x digital zoom (f / 3.4). The big difference with the Mate 40 Pro + is also immediately clear here, because this plus model has 10x optical zoom, 20x hybrid zoom and 100x digital zoom (f / 4.4, eight megapixels). The Pro + lets you zoom in further. However, that’s not all, because there is also a camera of twelve megapixels for the medium distances with 3x zoom and auto laser focus. The Pro + therefore has a dual-telephoto camera.
Both models have a thirteen megapixel camera and a depth sensor on the front. Both smartphones have a battery of 4,400 mAh and you can charge super-fast with the 66W charger. You can charge wirelessly up to a maximum of 50W.
The Mate 40 Series runs on Huawei Mobile Services with the EMUI 11 shell. No Google Play Store, but apps via the AppGallery of the Chinese manufacturer.
