Huawei Mate 40 Patents Show Off Design and New Virtual Camera Controls

    The Huawei Mate 40 series is expected to be released around October this year, and according to these new patents courtesy of LetsGoDigital, it looks like they’re going to be expanding on things introduced on the Mate 30 devices.

    Because of the Mate 30’s waterfall curved display, the company had to resort to virtual volume buttons that appeared when the edge of the display was tapped. The feature was hit or miss, but Huawei are choosing to go forward with it with new camera controls.

    We also get a good look at what the Huawei Mate 40 could look like. There are dual front facing cameras in the notch of the phone, though the notch has been minimized by a lot. It also retains the waterfall display, as expected.

    The digital camera interface places all the settings and virtual buttons on the edge of the display, leaving the viewfinder clear of clutter. It’s a smart idea considering the edges would go to waste anyway. Whether the Mate 40 line will actually have this feature or look like this remains to be seen, though we’re excited to find out.
