Huawei will soon launch new versions of the Mate 40 Pro and Mate X2 in China, which will undoubtedly be cheaper than the original devices, but in return, it will have to give up support for 5G networks.
The mobiles have already been posted on the manufacturer’s official website, but so far, neither the exact price nor the start of distribution has been announced.
Except for connectivity, the two devices are the same as previous models but are likely to cost less due to the lack of 5G. The Huawei Mate 40 Pro 4G is still a premium model with a 5-nanometer Kirin 9000 chip under the casing and a 50-megapixel primary camera on the back with a 12-megapixel 5x periscope zoom. Telephoto and a 20-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera. The display will not be less high-end either, just as a 6.76-inch, 90 Hz, 1344 x 2772 resolution OLED display occupies the front of the smartphone.
The Huawei Mate X2 4G gets the same cameras and processor, but this model comes with two displays, a 6.45-inch, 2700 x 1160-pixel 90 Hz OLED panel on the outside and a foldable 8-inch OLED panel on the inside. The solution also offers 90 Hz image refresh and 2200 x 2480 pixel resolution.
It is unknown whether new 4G versions of the devices will be available in other regions, but they are likely to be primarily aimed at the Chinese market.
