Huawei Mate SE launched with 4GB RAM, 64GB Storage and Dual Rear Camera – Review, Full Specs and Price

Huawei have quietly launched the Huawei Mate SE in the United States with amazing specs. The device comes with the trending dual rear camera which is almost common with flagship and midrange smartphones. We have to give it to Huawei, they produce the most beautiful and powerful devices, but their naming method is a complete mess.

There are far too many Huawei phones that looks alike, with the most weirdest of names which are categorically not in order. The Mate 10 Pro is still the company’s most powerful device, but does the Mate SE come close? We know it boasts of 4GB RAM and 64GB storage, but what else does it have to offer? Lets find out.

The company is not yet ready to completely get rid of the bezels on the screen. But at least the Mate SE sports a Full View screen. Impressively, it got up to 77.25% screen to body ratio, however the Huawei inscription at the bottom bezel was totally not necessary.

The top bezel houses the selfie camera, speaker grille and ambient light sensor, while the 5.93-inch screen looks sharp.

The dual rear shooters on this baby is very sharp, a 16MP + 2MP camera with f/2.2 aperture and captures 4K resolution images. With the Huawei Mate SE, you can take photographs with 4608 x 3456 pixels in dimension. The camera comes with a LED flash as well and many other features, recording videos of 1080 pixels at 30 frames per second.
