Just a few weeks before the official launch of the P50 series, Huawei launches a new version of the Mate 40 range. The Mate 40E 5G comes with a more modest processor, from an older generation, equipped with a slightly different screen than the previous models. so far a different room system. This is a kind of “Lite” model, but still within a range of high-end performance, being less powerful only compared to standard and Pro models launched last fall.
Mate 40E uses an older generation processor
Huawei Mate 40E 5G looks very similar to the already launched models. We are dealing with a screen with curved edges and a circular camera module, with four sensors arranged in a black circle. The device is built around a Full HD + screen with a diagonal of 6.5 ”and refresh rate at 90 Hz, but with a tactile response at 240 Hz. The front camera uses a single 13-megapixel sensor, a “downgrade” to the pro model. Being an OLED screen, the fingerprint sensor is still integrated under it.
The hardware configuration is based on the Kirin 990E chipset, a model launched in 2019, which uses cores from an older generation. It uses 8 GB of RAM, a proprietary 5G modem and comes in configurations with 128 or 256 GB of internal storage. The phone benefits from a 4,200 mAh battery with fast charging at 40W, but also with wireless charging at 40W, which also allows charging other devices wirelessly. Another small downgrade would be the water and dust resistance of IP53 compared to IP68, but it also receives a significant upgrade for some of the users: a 3.5mm jack.
The camera uses a 64-megapixel main sensor, an 8-megapixel sensor for the camera with 3x optical zoom and an ultra-wide 16-megapixel camera.
