Huawei Mate 40 Pro, Mate 40E and Mate X2 4G: Huawei’s new high-end are the same as its 5G brothers, but without 5G

If the Huawei P40 5G came out of a 4G sibling and the P30 Pro and P30 Lite succeeded the P30 Pro and P30 Lite New Edition, now it’s the turn of the company’s latest smartphones. Huawei has launched in China, again, the Mate 40 Pro, Mate 40E and Mate X2 (the latest folding). The data sheet is exactly the same, except for a nuance: they are not compatible with 5G networks, but are only compatible with 4G networks.

Otherwise, they are exactly the same devices. Literally, there is not the slightest change in its datasheets, even the processor is the same on all three models. The only difference is, therefore, that they will not be able to connect to 5G networks. Otherwise, the same mobiles. Huawei has not yet revealed the price of them, but if we stick to what is seen with the P40 5G and 4G, we can expect a slight reduction.

Same mobile phones, but no 4G

As we said earlier, Huawei’s new terminals are exactly the same as their predecessors. The first to see the light was the Mate 40 Pro, then followed by the Mate X2 and then came the Mate 40E, which is a high-end device on horseback between the Mate 40 and the Mate 40 Pro. They are three devices already known in the Asian market, since none of them have jumped to the Spanish market, at least for now.

Thus, on the Mate 40 Pro 4G we still have a 6.76-inch OLED display with 90 Hz of refresh, 8 GB of RAM, up to 512 GB of internal storage, a triple rear camera of 50+20+12 megapixels with five-megapixel optical zoom and the Kirin 9000 processor. Differences with the Kirin 9000 of the Mate 40 Pro 5G? It does not have a 5G modem and it only connects to the 4G network. Literally the same smartphone.

The same applies to the Mate 40E,which opts for a 6.5-inch OLED display with 90 Hz refresh rate, 8 GB of RAM, up to 256 GB of storage, three 64+16+8 megapixel cameras with three-boost optical zoom and the Kirin 990E processor. Again, the difference is in connectivity, but all other parameters remain immutable.

And as far as the folding terminal is concerned, the changes are exactly the same. It is curious, of course, that the company has launched this model when the Mate X2 5G is only a few months old. So, we have a folding 4G terminal with an internal OLED display of eight inches and 90 Hz, a front screen of 6.45 inches, also OLED, with 90 Hz; four 50+16+12+8 megapixel cameras (the last two three- and ten-magnification optical zoom telephotos) and the Kirin 9000 processor.

 

Huawei Mate 40 Pro, Mate 40E and Mate X2 4G versions and price

As noted above, the new smartphones have been announced in China and, for now, there is no official price. In fact, they are also not listed on VMall, which is Huawei’s online store in China. What we know is that the Mate X2 4G will be available in blue, pink, white and black; that the Mate 40E 4G will be in multicolor, black and white; and that the Mate 40 Pro 4G will be in multicolored, white, black, green and orange.
