At the China Informatization 2020 Summit on August 7, Huawei’s consumer business CEO Richard Yu said that Huawei Mate 40 will be released in September. This phone will be equipped with Huawei’s latest Kirin 9000 chip. According to insiders, since the number of Kirin 9000 chips is limited, Mate 40 series may only be sold in certain regions and not globally.
At present, there are many rumors about Mate 40, especially about its design. Today, we found a new patent from Huawei, and it is most likely to be the design patent of the Mate 40 series.
The patent was submitted by Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. to the China State Intellectual Property Office on January 21, 2020. It was approved on August 14, 2020. The main statement of this patent is a full-screen mobile phone. There is no front camera hole on its front, which indicates that it uses an under-screen camera. The camera module on the back of the phone includes 4 cameras and a display.
From the patent, it only shows the time. It is speculated that it should be able to display time, calendar, weather, and so on. Its camera module has three designs: the display is in the middle, the display is on the top, and the display is on the bottom. It is not clear which one will be used in the Mate 40 series. It is also possible that Mate 40, Mate 40 Pro, and Mate 40 Pro+ use different solutions.
In addition, there is a volume key and a switch key on the right side. We know that there is no volume button on the Mate 30 Pro. It seems that the volume button will reappear on the Mate 40 pro.
A similar camera has appeared on Meizu PRO 7. From the patented pictures, the display on the back of the Mate 40 series is smaller than that of the Meizu PRO 7. The display on the back of the Meizu PRO 7 can show photos, text messages, time, and calendar. and more.
According to the current information, Huawei Mate 40 will be equipped with Kirin 9000 processor, supplemented by 8 / 12 GB memory and 128GB / 256gb / 512gb storage. It will adopt the under-screen fingerprint solution. It will have a non-removable battery, gravity sensor, proximity sensor, optical sensor, acceleration sensor, electronic compass, fast charging, gyroscope, and OTG functions.
