The Huawei Mate 40 has been in the news for quite some time now, and now we finally have leaked renders of the phone which give us the first preview as to what the phone is likely going to look like. Famous leaker OnLeaks has provided us with renders that forecast what the Mate 40 is going to look like for the most part when it does come out. The biggest thing that stands out in the design is the humongous camera module at the back, which resembles a stove top as Huawei continues the design route they’ve stuck with since 2018 here.
On the front, the notch has been taken away and the popular punch hole cutout has been preferred by Huawei - a design that was popularized by Samsung. The screen panel seems to be as if Samsung is going to manufacture it as well for Huawei, as it has done in the past for many of the Chinese company’s flagships. At the back, the giant camera module houses 3 camera lenses, and a depth sensor which could be a Time of Flight sensor as well. There are other notable sensors to be seen at the top as well, and it’s unknown what they might be.
Huawei has been nailing the hardware aspect of their phones for quite some time now, as the only hurdle in its way is going to be the software issues it has currently. The US still has a ban on Huawei, and for that reason they can’t make use of Google’s services officially. This is a huge deal breaker for the majority of users in the smartphone market, as the Chinese manufacturer is looking to continuously improve upon their current AppGallery which has around 750 million users on the platform as of now.
