With the HUAWEI Mate 40 Pro, multitasking has been taken to a whole new level, thanks to the improved Multi-Screen Collaboration feature. Multi-screen Collaboration fundamentally transforms how work can be done. Virtual meetings are now more like a face-to-face discussion. You can use your smartphone as a digital notepad to jot down notes for creative inspiration. In addition, when you need to present content on your phone screen to others, all it takes is just one tap to initiate screen projection. Other improvements to Multi-screen Collaboration bring your smartphone even closer to your PC. Multi-tasking is now better, with support for up to three concurrent active apps, so you do not have to flip between screens to access different apps. HUAWEI Notepad on the HUAWEI Mate 40 Pro can recognise handwritten notes and convert scribbles into machine-encoded text, allowing you to easily insert it into a Word document or share with others, such as HUAWEI MateBook.

The HUAWEI Mate 40 Pro delivers the ultimate in 5G performance through the power of Huawei’s top of the line HUAWEI Kirin 9000 5G chipset. The flagship also comes with a futuristic Space Ring design, stellar videography, fast HUAWEI SuperCharge solutions and a long-lasting battery in addition to solid privacy and security features. The HUAWEI Mate 40 Pro is pre-installed with HUAWEI AppGallery, Huawei’s official app store with a constantly growing list of apps, where you can simply browse and download the apps you need. Huawei has also unveiled new apps available for global Huawei users, including Petal Search, a search engine that is your gateway to a million apps.
