July 26, 2020: Screen Protector
Previously, a screen protector of Huawei Mate 40 Pro leaked showing the top-view of this upcoming flagship and confirming the waterfall display design. Today, a new set of images leaked of this screen protector, revealing its different angles.
The screen protector in the image contains large curves on both sides of the display, similar to the Huawei Mate 30 Pro’s Horizon screen. However, there’s no clue of quad curves compared to the Huawei P40 Pro.
According to previous information, Huawei will purchase on-cell OLED panels from China’s BOE for the standard Huawei Mate 40. On the other hand, BOE alongside Samsung and LG will be the supplier for the waterfall display in Huawei Mate 40 Pro.
Huawei Mate 30 Pro features a 6.53-inch Horizon OLED display, 88-degree curved edges to provide an edge to edge seamless viewing experience.
With the Horizon display, Huawei also removed the physical volume keys and introduced a virtual key control system. A recent patent suggests that Huawei will add more virtual key features in the upcoming flagship.
