Although the Huawei Mate 40 series will not debut until this fall, it seems to have some eyebrows in terms of design. According to a report from a foreign website 91Mobile, a patent application filed by Huawei in the German Patent Office DPMA shows that Huawei smartphones have a similar appearance to the Mate 30 Pro, but the rear Oreo Yuba camera has been increased to five. The three cameras on the front means that the front and rear eight-camera design is used for the first time, and it may be used to meet us on the future Huawei Mate 40 Pro.
Eight-camera patented design
A design patent applied by Huawei to the German Patent Office DPMA this time shows that the Huawei smartphone is very similar in appearance to the Mate 30 Pro, with a borderless bangs waterfall screen on the front and three cameras, while the back is reserved for Austria Based on Leo Yuba's design, the number of cameras has been increased to five, so there are up to eight cameras in total.
Although the specific model name is not mentioned in the patent design document filed by Huawei, according to the speculation of the foreign website 91Mobile, it should not be a product such as a limited edition, plus Huawei has never launched the Huawei Mate series in the middle of the year. The precedent, so the patented design of the front and rear eight shots of this exposure is likely to be used on the Huawei Mate 40 Pro.
Rumors in the past
It is worth noting that although the claims about the patented design or Huawei Mate 40 Pro are speculative, rumors of Huawei ’s smart flagship carrying eight cameras before and after have been exposed in the past. At that time, some netizens familiar with the industry chain disclosed that The Huawei P40 Pro launched this spring will be quite aggressive in camera configuration, with eight cameras in common. Among them, the three front lenses will include dual main cameras of 20MP and 32MP and a ToF lens, while the rear camera will be a 64MP main camera with a 7P lens, a 52MP ultra wide-angle camera with a 6P lens, a ToF lens, and a 1G + 5P glass-plastic hybrid periscope lens and exclusive movie lens.
However, since the now exposed Huawei P40 Pro uses a front-facing dual-drilling design, even if it is equipped with a rear Leica five-shot, there are only seven lenses in total, so the real front-back eight-shot should be used on the Huawei Mate 40 Pro. And with the help of the front ToF camera, it supports payment-level 3D face recognition. In addition, Huawei Mate 40 series will definitely be equipped with the new Kirin 1020 processor. It is expected that the upgrade in ISP will bring better support for multi-camera lenses.
Official debut this fall
Of course, the patented design does not mean that it will become the final product, and Huawei rarely uses the design of last year in upgrading products. Therefore, perhaps we should pay more attention to the patent design of this exposure. The configuration, especially whether the camera sensor size continues to be upgraded, or what unique features brought by the addition of the lens, is what we really look forward to.
According to the update cycle of Huawei Mate series, it is expected that the new Kirin 1020 processor will also be launched in September, and then the new Mate series will be officially released. It is believed that with the gradual maturity of many technologies, the design will We bring more surprises.
