Huawei Mate 40 Pro confirmed for our shores

Huawei is planning to bring its much anticipated Mate 40 Pro smartphone to South Africa, the company confirmed earlier today. Set to land from 1st April, the Mate 40 Pro packs a lot of power and mouthwatering specs that would make anyone proud. Don’t believe us? Check them out for yourself below:

  • The Huawei Mate 40 Pro is bringing to the table innovative features and striking design elements that elevate the user experience. With a strong focus on 5G performance, trend-setting design ethos and smartphone videography, the HUAWEI Mate 40 Pro encompasses the spirit of Huawei’s innovative streak and commitment to providing users with everything they would want and more.
  • It brings with it its iconic Space Ring design complete with unique colourways of Mystic Silver and Black. This is complemented upfront with the ultra-curved HUAWEI Horizon Display, which curves at 88 degrees, allowing for a completely borderless and futuristic viewing experience. By curving the display to this extent, Huawei also gives users the option to use the volume rockers either with the physical buttons or virtual ones that can be customised.
  • The device features the 5nm Kirin 9000 flagship SoC (System on chip), the industry’s most advanced and transistor-dense SoC to date. It is powerful, power efficient and high speed. The Kirin 9000 is steeped in Huawei’s leading innovations. It adopts a three-level power efficiency architecture, with one big core, three middle cores, and four small cores. The clock frequencies of the cores are as fast as 3.13GHz. The Kirin 9000 includes a 24-core Mali-G78 GPU, the most powerful GPU yet in a Huawei mobile SoC, which means it can run games at higher framerates and provide better picture quality to deliver a more immersive gaming experience.
  • The HUAWEI Mate40 Pro is equipped with HMS for a smarter, richer, more convenient and secure smartphone experience. It is also preinstalled with HUAWEI AppGallery and the Petal Search widget, which acts as a gateway to over a million local apps. You can install local apps like Capitec, FNB, ABSA, Nedbank, Standard Bank, Showmax, Bolt, Takealot, Superbalist, Zando and many more.
