If you are serious about mobile photography and videography, then perhaps the new Huawei Mate 40 Series Smartphone may interested. Well, that’s if you are outside of the U.S., of course. Three models were announced: Mate 40, Mate 40 Pro and Mate 40 Pro+.

Huawei Mate 40 Series Smartphone

We noticed there is a subtle change to the branding. The ‘Mate’ and ’40’ are now one word like so: Mate40. It irks me, but that just me. I don’t recall the Mate 30 was Mate30. Did it? Hmmm.

Anyhoo… once again, Huawei has partnered with Leica for the imagine system and all devices get the new Kirin 9000 5G SoC. Lets not waste anymore time than necessary. Keep going for a rundown of the specs of all three devices followed by their respective pricing.
