The Mate 40 and Mate 40 Pro are built with anodized aluminum frame and gorilla glass or synthetic leather backing. The Mate 40 Pro + uses ceramic for both frame and back. The notch of the Mate 30 series has been replaced by a cutout in the upper left hand corner.

The rear camera setup of the three main phones is housed in a separate ring shape, called the Space Ring Camera System, which Huawei says is “a window to explore the world.” [Ring] The Space Ring camera system is similar to its predecessor, the Mate 30.

The Mate 40 Pro has a similar quad-camera setup, arranged in a similar manner. The setup features a 50 MP f / 1.9 wide main camera, similar to the Mate 40, a high resolution 12 MP f / 3.4 periscope telephoto and a high resolution 20 MP ultraviolet camera. It also includes a similar TOF depth sensor.
The Mate 40 Pro + has a Penta-camera setup, meaning that it has 5 separate rear cameras. It is 50 MP f / 1.9 wide, like two lower-end models, a 12 MP f / 2.4 telephoto lens, 8 MP f / 4.4 periscope telephoto lens, capable of up to 10x optical zoom, 20 MP f / 2.4 ultraviolet and TOF depth Sensors, similar to others.
The luxury model, the Mate 40RS Porsche Design. Has the same Penta-camera setup as the Mate Pro +, but lacks a space ring. Instead opting for a large, octagonal protrusion without an opening in the center.
