Huawei has officially unveiled the Mate 40 Series, which includes Huawei Mate 40, Mate 40 Pro, Mate 40 Pro+. The Huawei Mate 40 is the entry-level of the series but in anyways, it’s a flagship, whether you’re looking at the internal specifications, display technology, camera setup, or the overall design. It’s a very convincing handset, but Google Play services are still lacking and this alone is a BIG discouraging factor to consider this convincing and good-looking device.
As such, Huawei has no option but to move ahead with its own services running on open-source Android as the ban shows no signs of being removed. Check out the Huawei Mate 40 Price in Nigeria, availability, and full specs below
The Huawei Mate 40 comes with a curved screen, a punch hole for the selfie camera on the left corner, and a large circular camera block on the rear. The Huawei Mate 40 has IP68 certification and this means that the is waterproof down to six meters for 30 minutes.
The design of the rare cameras is undoubtedly eye-catching with the lenses around the center of a ring. Huawei called the design ‘Space Ring’. The triple rare camera setup consists of a 50MP (f/1,9) main lens, a 16MP (f/2.2) ultra-wide, and an 8MP (f/2.4) telephoto lens which delivers 3x optical zoom, PDAF, and Optical Image Stabilization
The Huawei Mate 40 comes with a 6.5-inch curved screen (68-degree curved) and it is an OLED screen with a resolution of 1080 x 2376 pixels, 402 PPI pixel density, 90Hz refresh rate, and support for HDR10.
There is a Kirin 9000 processor in all of the Huawei Mate 40 models. Just like the A14 Bionic used in the latest iPhone 12 series, this is a 5 nm chipset, and Huawei has made some big statements about it.
The company claims its CPU is 10% smoother than Snapdragon 865+ and its Graphics are 52 % smoother. This processor is expected to be more powerful than the strongest Qualcomm Snapdragon 865+ processor.
The device supports 5G connectivity and runs on Android 10 with the EMUI 11 interface, but still, there is no support of Google Play services.
As for RAM and storage, 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage are available in the Huawei Mate 40. Similarly, a 4,400mAh battery is available, which should be more than enough for day to day activities
Huawei’s fast-charging innovation is top-notch and can fastly recharge your Huawei in no time. The included charger in the box supports 40W SuperCharge technology and can fully charge the device within 1 hour. Note that Huawei Mate 40 doesn’t support wireless charging.

Do not be persuaded by the fact that Huawei is building some of the world’s most fancy and advanced devices with a powerful Kirin 9000 chip and capable camera systems. The truth is that all these features mean nothing to me without Google Play services. Most consumers can’t be convinced to use a device that doesn’t support Google. No way!
The last time I checked GSMarena, a poll was posted on whether to buy any of the Huawei Mate 40 series or not. Guess what? The results showed that most people don’t wanna buy any of the Mate 40 models and I think it is all due to the absence of Google Play services.
