This is our first look at the Huawei Mate 40 & its huge camera bump

Last year in September, Huawei Mate 30 & Mate 30 Pro went official with impressive design & great specs. The Mate 30 Pro, especially, had a very interesting design that included a Waterfall screen on the front & a circular camera setup on the back.

Huawei is banned in the US & cannot use Google Services, but still, the company keeps launching new phones with HMS or Huawei Mobile Services which is a platform from Huawei that includes apps which replace the popular Google apps like Gmail, Play Store, Maps etc.

Anyways, just like last year, we are expecting the Huawei Mate 40 to launch in a month or so & today, we got our first look at this phone, thanks to the CAD-based renders shared by OnLeaks in collaboration with HandsetExpert.

These CAD renders show that the Mate 40 has a huge circular camera bump on the back & although the camera bump is huge, there are only three cameras in it. This suggests that Huawei went for pretty large sensors on the Mate 40.

Also, unlike the last year’s Mate 30 which had a flat display on the front & a notch, the Mate 40 has a curved display & a pill-shaped punch-hole cutout for dual selfie cameras. Without the camera bump, the Mate 40 is 8.9mm thick, but with it, the thickness is 10.4mm. The USB Type-C Port & the speaker grill is there on the bottom & to no surprise, the phone has no headphone jack.

Now, the fourth sensor on the back could be a LiDAR sensor like Apple’s new iPads, but that’s just speculation. The display is roughly 6.4-inches.

Well, there is no information regarding the launch or the specifications so we’ll have to wait.
