The Huawei Mate 40 series will launch on October 22, and the company is committed to building the hype ahead of time. The latest tactic for wooing customers is the camera sample that the company claims was shot using the Mate 40 camera. And to everyone’s amazement, it’s a photo of a moon in broad daylight. The spots and features of the lunar surface are largely clear in the photo, which tells a lot about the Mate 40 camera.
Shooting celestial objects, such as the moon and stars in the sky, has become just another parameter that smartphone companies use to showcase their cameras. But Huawei started it all with the beautiful moon shot that the Mate 30 clicked on. This feature has also been retained on the P30 Pro. And with the Mate 40 Pro, the company goes out of its way to show how much its experience has improved on phone cameras.
Huawei’s smartphone unit head He Gang posted the photo on Weibo, but did not share the specs of the sensor responsible for this breathtaking photo. However, there are rumors that there will be a 50 megapixel main camera on the phone. Additionally, the 7680fps mode for ultra slow motion video will likely record at 1080p resolution. There are additional sensors provided in a whimsical design that may be too much for some users. Either way, it looks like Huawei is making some serious updates to its flagship’s cameras that can make Samsung shy.
But Huawei will face a limited inventory challenge for Mate 40 series phones. Its TSMC chip manufacturing partners could only make so many chipset units before the Trump administration ordered them to stop working for Huawei in the background suspicions about Chinese brands. For what it’s worth, there may be enough drives for enthusiasts eagerly awaiting Huawei’s flagship. There may be Mate 40 and Mate 40 Pro in the series, along with a Porsche Design edition.
