Chinese smartphone vendor Huawei Technologies has released its latest smartphone, the Huawei Mate Pro 40, in Australia.

The device was first announced at a global event in October and is claimed to be the greenest smartphone the company has produced. It has the first 5 nanometre 5G SoC, an Ultra Vision Cine Camera system and the iconic Space Ring Design.

It will retail for $1999 and the Mystic Silver model will be sold at Huawei Authorised Experience Stores in Chatswood, World Square and the recently opened Hurstville Store, all in NSW.

Huawei Consumer Business Australian managing director Larking Huang said: "The Mate 40 Pro exemplifies Huawei as a leader in innovation when it comes to designing next-generation consumer technology.

"Our advancements in hardware such as the 5G SoC, combined with the world's best smartphone camera systems and the intuitive Huawei Mobile Services, deliver the most sophisticated and intelligent smartphone experience possible to our Australian consumers.

"We're committed to making our smartphones and operations as a business more sustainable and are proud to say that the Mate 40 Pro is the greenest smartphone we have ever made, with a significant reduction to plastic packaging and paper documentation.

"As part of Huawei's extensive ecosystem of consumer products, we continue to pave the way for a more seamless, connected and sustainable future."

The Huawei Mate 40 Pro has been adjudged to have the best smartphone camera with the rating provided by DXOMARK, a leading source of independent display and image quality measurements and ratings for smartphones, cameras and lenses.

The device is claimed to include a 28% reduction in plastic packaging and an 83% reduction in paper documentation.

"In Europe we have introduced an industry-leading digital warranty card that allows users to easily access their documents with a scannable QR code on the device, or simply by downloading it from Huawei's website," the company said.

Also released was the Huawei nova-7i, a 4G smartphone that will sell for $499. The Midnight Black model can be bought from the three Huawei stores mentioned earlier, and also from Mobileciti, The Good Guys and Amazon.

This smartphone has a quad-camera system which includes a 48MP main camera and an 8MP ultra wide-angle lens plus a bokeh lens.

It is powered by the Kirin 810 SoC, and a high-capacity 4200mAh battery and can be charged to 70% in just 30 minutes.
