With the Huawei Mate 40, the go-ahead for the next flagship of the Chinese manufacturer is due in autumn. According to current reports, the Android smartphone will be presented in October. There are also entries in the databases of the first certification authorities.
Huawei’s smartphone division is currently struggling to survive after tightened US sanctions will affect the purchase and use of processors, memory, and other chips from September 15. Although rumors of a possible exit from the smartphone business have been leaked from internal circles for a few days, the manufacturer seems to be sticking to the launch of the new Huawei Mate 40. This is indicated, among other things, by the first photo of possible marketing material that predicts a sale of the Mate 40 series from October 2020.
Three models of the Huawei Mate 40 series are on the horizon
Apart from the information published via Weibo, the Gizchina blog came across new database entries at the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC). The certification authority is responsible for approving products before they can be offered for sale in countries such as Russia, Armenia, or Kazakhstan. The entries should indicate three new Huawei smartphones – the Mate 40, Mate 40 Pro, and Mate 40 Pro +. There is also speculation about an additional Lite model and a Porsche Design Edition (RS). It is questionable whether the entire series will start in October, as a possible limited edition of the Mate 40 is still being discussed.

Rumors about the technical features of the Huawei Mate 40 smartphones have so far been limited. One assumes 6.4 to 6.8 inch OLED displays with 90 Hz. Quad cameras with up to 50 megapixels, the new Kirin 9000 chip (5nm), and Android 11 (EMUI 11) are also under discussion. At the beginning of August, the first render images that should show the Huawei Mate 40 Pro also spread. Still, it remains to be seen how the manufacturer will react to the restrictions in the ongoing trade war between the US and China.
