On the afternoon of October 30, 2020, at the Huawei's annual flagship new product launch conference, Huawei officially released the Mate 40 series and continued to cooperate with Porsche to launch the Huawei Mate 40. HUAWEI Mate 40 RS Porsche Design has three versions: 12 256GB, 12GB + 512GB and HUAWEI Mate 40 RS Porsche Design Collection Edition (with 66W car charger), of which 12GB + 512GB is priced at €2295. It will go on sale on October 30. The price of the 40 RS Porsche Design is already on par with the Apple iPhone 12 series. As far as the current smart phone market is concerned, the volume that can be the same grade as the Apple iPhone 12 series is almost rare.
The appearance of HUAWEI Mate 40 RS Porsche Design is highly recognizable.
Specifically, for the HUAWEI Mate 40 RS Porsche Design, the appearance has changed a lot from the regular version. According to the introduction, the back of this smartphone is a back camera with an octagonal star diamond design. The official introduction of Huawei mobile phone calls for 14 polishing processes to create a sculptural ceramic body combined with a dynamic flying line design to provide ceramic black , Ceramic white two colors. In this regard, in the author's opinion, as a high-end flagship mobile phone, the appearance of the HUAWEI Mate 40 RS Porsche Design is still relatively new, or it can be said to be highly recognizable. And this obviously can meet the needs of this part of smart phone users. After all, users who choose high-end flagship phones naturally do not want the products in their hands to be mediocre and popular in appearance.
OLED display screen is lighter and thinner, with larger viewing angle.
At the press conference, Huawei’s mobile phone official stated that the Mate 40 RS Porsche Design incorporates the genes of the three major brands of Porsche, Leica, and Huawei. Customized diamond cutter heads and innovative process polishing to meet the needs of smart phone users. For HUAWEI Mate 40 RS Porsche Design, the front of the fuselage uses an 88-degree 6.76-inch OLED curved screen like the regular version. According to public information on the Internet, OLED (Organic Light-Emitting Diode), or organic light-emitting diode, is a new type of product on mobile phone OLED and is known as a "dream display." OLED display technology is different from traditional LCD display methods. It does not require a backlight, and uses very thin organic material coatings and glass substrates (or flexible organic substrates). These organic materials will emit light when current passes through. Moreover, the OLED display screen can be made lighter and thinner, with a larger viewing angle, and can significantly save power consumption.
The Kirin 9000 chip is powerful and is the world's first 5G SoC with a 5nm process technology.
For HUAWEI Mate 40 RS Porsche Design, the core configuration is also equipped with Kirin 9000 chips. Why is it called Kirin 9000? Huawei did not give a clear answer to this question, but there is no doubt that it is currently the most powerful Kirin chip and the world's first 5G SoC with a 5nm process technology. This contains two pieces of information. First, the 5nm process technology is currently the most advanced technology. Only Apple A14 and Kirin 9000 use this process. The second is 5G. Like the Kirin 990 5G, the Kirin 9000 integrates the 5G baseband and chip, instead of an additional baseband model. The advantage of integration is that it can save space on the motherboard and make room for an inch of gold mobile phone space. Based on the HiSilicon Kirin 9000 processor, this high-end flagship phone is equipped with up to 12GB of running memory. In this regard, in my opinion, in the smartphone market in 2020, 12GB of running memory has become a more popular configuration, which is used by flagship phones of smartphone manufacturers such as Huawei, Xiaomi, vivo, OPPO, and Samsung.
Finally, for the HUAWEI Mate 40 RS Porsche Design, the camera and Pro version are basically unchanged, supporting 66W wired super fast charging, 50W super wireless fast charging, and 5W reverse charging. The so-called "reverse charging" is the process of switching to a mobile power supply for discharging and charging other electronic devices when the mobile phone is connected to other devices. At this time, the mobile phone becomes a power bank. When a mobile phone with reverse charging function detects the insertion of an OTG device that supports data exchange between devices, the mobile phone outputs voltage to the VBUS on the USB data line and will prompt reverse charging. Among them, it should be noted that the Collector's Edition adds an infrared sensor that can measure the temperature of the human body and objects, ranging from -20°C to 100°C. In this regard, in my opinion, the addition of this function can undoubtedly form a differentiated competitive effect. What do you think of this?
