Huawei continues to prepare for the launch of its next high-end smartphones, the Huawei Mate 40. This is one of the brand’s most popular lines, regularly bringing innovations that delight Huawei fans. However, new information makes us think that this year the new smartphones could end up being a disappointment.
For some years now, Huawei has accustomed us to smartphones that have incredible capabilities, both in terms of performance, as well as photography and the quality of their screens. According to the renowned leaker @ RODENT950 on Twitter, the new models may arrive with screens that leave a lot to be desired.
Considering that these are true top-of-the-range devices that usually push the limits of the available technology, it would be expected that their screens support a refresh rate of 120Hz or even 144Hz. But it looks like it won’t happen. Although it has already been confirmed that the brand is testing units with a refresh rate of 90Hz and 120Hz, the leaker says they will end up staying at 90Hz.
Huawei Mate 40 may have its success dependent on the power of the new Kirin processor
Currently, Huawei has a very complicated life in Europe, as it cannot launch smartphones with support for Google services. Even though it has done an excellent job with the development of viable alternatives, it is still very complicated to justify the large investment in its high-end smartphones.
Now, with the information that the Mate 40 screen may not arrive with the most desired specifications, its popularity may be completely dependent on the innovations brought by the new Kirin processor (5nm).
Although it has already been confirmed that the new processor could bring great benefits on screens with high update rates, it seems that the manufacturer will prefer to play it safe and ensure that the smartphone offers enviable autonomy.
Finally, it is also possible for this processor to introduce us to some news regarding the photographic capabilities of the smartphone, which could also be one of its main selling points.
We are still a few months away from its official presentation, and it is possible that the manufacturer will still take some fundamental decisions in the technologies available on the Huawei Mate 40. It is possible that they will end up choosing to leave support for 120Hz optionally for users.
