The Huawei Mate 40 is expected to arrive sometime soon, and a new report points out three Mate 40 models along with their codenames and technical model numbers. The three devices arrived to the MIIT (Ministry of Industry and Information Technology) in China. This documentation doesn’t reveal any specs, though.
The regular Mate 40 is codenamed Ocean, and it carries a model number OCE-AN00. The Mate 40 Pro is codenamed Noah with a model number NOH-AN00, and the Mate 40 Pro+ has a model number of NOP-AN00. The codename wasn’t mentioned, but based on the scheme of the other two, we’d imagine its codename starts with N-O-P.

All variants are expected to run the next Kirin 5nm processor, and it is said that this might be the last Kirin-powered flagship that Huawei will produce for the foreseeable future due to the US’ crippling sanctions that blocked American companies from conducting business with Huawei. This processor has been referred to as the Kirin 1000, but more recently called the Kirin 9000.
CAD-based renders: Huawei Mate 40 • Mate 40 Pro
The Huawei Mate 40 has previously leaked in CAD renders. Just Friday, we saw alleged images of the display glass surface. Based on these images, we know that the Mate 40 Pro will have a boxier appearance compared to the P40 Pro, and the dual-selfie camera punch-hole will be slimmer.

The Mates are expected to arrive with a 108MP main camera, and the Pro model will have a periscope camera capable of 5X zoom or 55X digital zoom. The images above, however, are not consistent with the leaked renders. We can’t wait to see the final design of the Mate 40 lineup.
