It is less than a week before Chinese tech giant Huawei officially unveils the Mate 40 series in an event scheduled for October 22. Teasers of the Mate 40 have been coming out in bits. The latest teaser comes in form of a video released by Huawei’s terminal official Weibo page. The teaser video is accompanied by the text – “Master assists, the second becomes the master. October 22, # Huawei Mate40# advanced smooth. ” The video itself is that of an interstellar space combat game. Some careful netizens found that as the frame number of the game in the lower-left corner becomes 90, the spacecraft equipment in the game is upgraded, which should imply that the Mate 40 series will upgrade the entire system to a 90Hz screen. This should further improve the fluency and should be an upgrade over the Mate 30 which came with 60Hz refresh rate.

Flagship phones have improved beyond 90Hzto 120Hz and even 144Hz on gaming phones. Thus, while 90Hz may not offer the most fluent display, it offers some improvements over 60Hz. We can’t even say if the top-end Mate 40 Pro will top at 120Hz. That is a possibility as Huawei won’t want to lag behind.
The mate 40 is expected to feature the 5nm Kirin 9000 chipset and will utilise a curved screen. A recent teaser also points to the presence of octagonal rear camera design. The phone is tipped to have 66W fast charge support and will run on EMUI 11 but don’t expect GMS on board.
