Just recently, Huawei has silently listed the 4G variants of its previously launched flagships including Mate 40 Pro, Mate X2, P40 Pro, and from mid-range Nova 8 Pro. In terms of configurations, only the notable difference is 4G capabilities instead of 5G.
Previously, Huawei Mate 40 Pro 4G spotted on the TENAA listing and received network certification in China. Most of the hardware and other parameter is found similar to 5G variants.
But, shocking news is that this smartphone is registered with a pre-installed HarmonyOS operating system. Before this, no other phone spotted with pre-build HarmonyOS.
Now, according to the latest news, the Huawei Mate 40 Pro 4G variant has completed China’s compulsory 3C quality certification. It shows that this device packs with HW-100600C00 and HW-110600C02 charger that supports 66W fast charging.
Huawei Mate 40 Pro 4G key specification:
- Display: 6.7-inch Cover OLED Display
- Processor: Kirin 9000
- OS: HarmonyOS
- Network: 4G support
- Refresh rate: 90Hz
- Main Camera: 50MP
- Front camera: 13MP
- Battery: 4400 mAh with 66W fast charging support
On the other hand, it was reported due to US restrictions on Huawei, the American-based companies aren’t able to supply 5G equipment to the company. So, Huawei keeps the processor still the same Kirin 9000 and replaced the OS with HarmonyOS in Mate 40 Pro 4G.
Huawei Mate 50 Pro+ might get cancelled: Tipster
It was reported that Huawei is preparing to launch three versions of the upcoming Mate 50 series but it seems like the company has made some changes to the plan. As the fresh inputs hint, the Huawei Mate 50 Pro+ version is likely to get cancelled among all of the launching models.
A well-known Weibo tipster has hinted that Huawei has recently made some changes in the Huawei Mate 50 series launch strategy, and it’s revealed that the company might get the Pro+ version cancelled. If we look into our previous graph, we could come to this understanding of four models – three standard and one special edition.
- Huawei Mate 50
- Huawei Mate 50 Pro
- Huawei Mate 50 Pro+
- Huawei Mate 50 RS Porsche Design
However, with the removal of the Pro+ model, we will only find the Mate 50 and Mate 50 Pro in the realm of consumers along with the possible happening of the Porsche Design variant. A similar scenario has also happened with the Huawei P50 series, which came in standard and Pro models, while the P40 series had three variants.
More on this matter, the tipster suggests that all of the Huawei Mate 50 series models will equip 4G network access and can access 5G via external cases. That was launched previously for the Huawei P50 Pro devices. However, it could directly reflect that Huawei is keen to heavily utilize the Qualcomm Snapdragon chipsets for this upcoming flagship lineup. Moving on, the camera design has been changed a bit as compared to the last generation but only slightly.
The latest changes may have been related to the supply chain issues and the Chines tech maker is working to resolve them on time to get the device to the launch stage.
As for now, Huawei has not confirmed the launch date for the Huawei Mate 50 series but we could assume that this flagship could unveil in August this year.
