If the Huawei P40 5G got a 4G brother and the P30 Pro and P30 Lite were followed by the P30 Pro and P30 Lite New Edition, now it is the turn of the company’s latest smartphones. Huawei has launched in China, again, the Mate 40 Pro, Mate 40E, and Mate X2 (the latter foldable). The datasheet is the same, except for one minor difference: they are not compatible with 5G networks but are only compatible with 4G networks.

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

Same phones, but without 4G

As we said earlier, the new Huawei handsets are 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 straddling the Mate 40 and Mate 40 Pro. They are three devices already known in the Asian market.

Huawei Mate 40 Pro 4G

So, in the Mate 40 Pro 4G, we still have a 6.76-inch OLED display with 90 Hz refresh, 8 GB of RAM, up to 512 GB of internal storage, a triple rear camera of 50+20+12 megapixels with five optical zoom, and the Kirin 9000 processor. Differences with the Kirin 9000 of the Mate 40 Pro 5G? Well, it doesn’t have a 5G modem and only connects to the 4G network. The same smartphone.

Huawei Mate 40E 4G

The same applies to the Mate 40E, which goes for a 6.5-inch OLED display with a 90 Hz refresh rate, 8 GB of RAM, up to 256 GB of storage, three 64+16+8 megapixel cameras with 3x optical zoom, and the Kirin 990E processor. Again, the difference is in connectivity, but all other parameters remain unchanged.

Huawei Mate X2 4G

And as far as the foldable device is concerned, the changes are the same. It is curious, of course, that the company has launched this model when the Mate X2 5G is barely a few months old. Thus, we have a foldable 4G phone with an 8-inch, 90Hz internal OLED display, a 6.45-inch front display, also OLED, with 90Hz; four cameras of 50+16+12+8 megapixels (the last two with optical zoom of three and ten magnification), and the Kirin 9000 processor.

Price and Availability of the Huawei Mate 40 Pro, Mate 40E, and Mate X2 4G

As we indicated above, the new smartphones have been announced in China and, for now, there is no official price. They are also not listed on VMall, which is Huawei’s online store in China. What we do 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, white, and black; and that the Mate 40 Pro 4G will be in multicolor, white, black, green and orange.
