Huawei’s Mate 40 series gets a new member today — the Mate 40E 5G, which now joins the already existing Mate 40, Mate 40 Pro, Mate 40 Pro+, and Mate 40 RS Porsche Design.
The Huawei Mate 40E 5G, despite being the cheapest of all is no slouch as it has some beefy specs. To start off, the phone sports a 6.5-inch Full HD+ display with a 90Hz refresh rate and a curved OLED panel with a 240Hz touch sampling rate. There’s a punch-hole in the top-left corner that makes room for a 13MP selfie camera, while underneath the screen is a fingerprint scanner for biometric security.
Much like its counterparts, the back of the Mate 40E 5G has a circular camera panel that hosts a 64MP main shooter, 8MP telephoto with 3x optical zoom, and a 16MP ultrawide unit, which also doubles as a macro lens that lets you click pictures from as close as 2.5cm.
The camera panel also has a laser focus sensor right alongside the triple-camera, and like usual there’s LEICA branding to showcase Huawei’s partnership with the German camera company.
Running inside the Mate 40E 5G is a Kirin 990E chipset that goes with 8GB of RAM. The phone ships with EMUI 11 based on Android 10 and comes with two memory config — 128GB and 256GB.
Powering this phone is a 4,200mAh battery that charges over Type-C port at 40W charging speed — the same can be said for the phone’s wireless charging. There’s also reverse wireless charging, however, Huawei has not said anything about its speed.
Other noticeable feature includes IP53 rating, 3.5mm headphone jack, NFC, WiFi 6+, stereo speakers, air gestures, and dual-band GPS.
As for the price, the Huawei Mate 40E 5G goes for CNY 4,599 for the 8GB/128GB trim, which is about NPR 82,664 in Nepal. For the 8GB/256GB variant, the phone is priced at CNY 5,099 (~NPR 91,651).
