2020 is a weird year for the rest of the world including Huawei.

But, despite the effects of the global Coronavirus pandemic and heightened pressure because of the China-US trade situation, Huawei remained focus on their goal of providing the best possible products to help improve the lives of its customers.

The fruit of its labor is its last flagship-line of the year—the Huawei Mate 40 Series.

In China, this line is selling like hotcakes probably due to its new-generation 5nm chipset, highly advanced features, top-rated mobile cameras, and attractive offers

One of those phones is the Huawei Mate 40 Pro.

AND a few days ago, Huawei Philippines sent us a loaner unit of the said device for unboxing and review.

What does that mean? This handset will definitely go official in the Philippines.

As of the moment

66W SuperCharge

This is a beautiful phone with a lot of power inside.

The OLED display picture quality is great as usual and it can go really bright. It even has tricks like the Air Gesture for scrolling, screenshots, and more.
Its punch-hole is even smaller than the P40 Pro

The 5nm+ EUV Kirin 9000 chipset is super fast and the thermals are okay so far. It is paired with 8GB RAM and 256GB storage. There's no lag even if you play at the highest settings. This is probably due to its use of a 24-core Mali-G78 GPU.

Plus, it has a loud stereo speaker and it made us enjoy gameplay, music listening, and more from this phone.

The handset is also equipped with a large 4,400mAh battery. My estimate, this will have all-day battery life. Another impressive feature of the device is its use of the 66W fast charger. That's one of the fastest today.

We will reveal our findings in our full review, but likely charging from 0 to 100 percent will be less than 50 minutes.

The Mate 40 Pro is also one of the few with a 50W Wireless SuperCharge today, but you'll need to buy a SuperCharge Wireless Charger as it is sold separately.

Sadly, we do not have one at the moment.

Of course, this has 5G connectivity. Huawei is claiming that it has the widest 5G support as well. That makes this phone more now and future-ready.

The software is EMUI 11 based on Android 10.

As usual, there's no Google. But, it has the AppGallery and Petal Search Widget to let you find the apps you need. On my end, I used the Phone Clone app.

In just 2 minutes using the Phone Clone, I was able to transfer nearly all my apps as well as my contacts from the P40 Pro to the Mate 40 Pro.

So far, it's definitely a worthy successor of the Mate 30 Pro. It has arguably the strongest hardware found on Android devices yet.

What do you guys think?
