We finally get to know Huawei’s new Mate 40 series, which once again hits the table for the Android market in terms of design and functions. And it is that the new Huawei phones not only come with an attractive design, but also with the world’s most advanced processor for Android, and the fastest charging on the market in a phone.

But before talking in more detail, these are the specifications of the Huawei Mate 40 and Mate 40 Pro

World’s fastest charge on a phone

Huawel is once again the leader when it comes to fast charging, because despite the fact that manufacturers such as Xiaomi, OPPO or Vivio have shown charging systems of more than 100W, none of these technologies is on the market, so Huawei is takes the crown with its 66W fast charge, thus surpassing the OnePlus 65W.

Likewise, the firm includes a 50W wireless charging system that will allow the total battery to be charged in a short time, so it will now be much more convenient to use this type of technology, especially if we need to charge the phone in the shortest time possible .

First 5 nanometer processor for Android

Although the first 5 nanometer processor for mobile devices was presented by Apple a few weeks ago, Huawei does the same for the Android market with the Kirin 9000 chip, which could be the last Kirin processor that we will see in the near future due to problems of the company with the United States.

This new chip even claims to be more efficient and faster than the A14 Bionic, and is focused on improving more advanced processes that require artificial intelligence, photography, performance, and of course it will also have substantial improvements in terms of energy consumption in the device.

In fact, with this new generation of phones, Huawei continues to bet a lot on the air gesture system that we saw in the Mate 30, and which work much better and more fluidly thanks to this new Kirin 9000.

It is important to mention that, of the 3 models presented, only the Mate 40 Pro and Mate 40 Pro + carry the 5G modem that supports NSA and SA networks, as happened with the P40 series.

Huawei Mate40 Pro+

Again we see a more advanced model that is very similar to the Mate 40 Pro, but that improves in very specific things, since the big differences between one and the other is that the Mate 40 Pro + has more RAM, more internal storage and also integrates two photographic sensors additional to mount a total of 4 cameras and a ToF sensor.
