Today, Huawei has officially confirmed what has been said a lot unofficially. The branded EMUI 11 user interface will debut on September 10 – the first day of the Huawei Developers Conference. This data is also written in the teaser picture.
But what’s interesting is that the teaser, in addition to a smartphone, also features a microwave oven, refrigerator, air conditioner and TV. The caption on the image translates as: “Mobile phones are not just mobile phones. What else can they be?”.
Considering that all the devices in the image are combined, and next to it is a cloud, the teaser hints at the Huawei Cloud service and some of its new features. But what exactly does Huawei want to say is not yet clear.
Huawei will be hosting a big HDC 2020 event this week, which will showcase software innovations such as EMUI 11 and HarmonyOS 2. However, the Chinese company intends to show some hardware innovations. According to the official announcement of Huawei, on September 10, we will have two presentations. The first one will start at 07:00 GMT time and will be focused on developers (EMUI 11 and HarmonyOS 2). Next, after a lunch break and a short rest, the 1-hour “global presentation of new Huawei products” kicks off at 12:00.
What will be presented from the new products is still unknown. The most obvious candidates are the Mate 40 Lite (E) and the FreeBuds Pro headphones. Also, with a high degree of probability, we will find out the date of the presentation of the Mate 40 flagships, but their debut at the HDC 2020 conference is unlikely to happen. Well, it will be interesting anyway. Do not miss it!
Here’s why Huawei canceled Kirin 9000 announcement at IFA 2020
The time has come for the autumn announcements. This means that around this time we should see the Kirin 9000 chipset. It will be the basis for the Mate 40. The fans of the brand have been waiting for this presentation at IFA 2020, which took place in the past days in an online format, but this has not happened.
The Chinese media explained why. According to this data, Huawei’s management decided to postpone the announcement of the world’s first 5nm chip based on two factors. Unwillingness to once again draw attention to itself and waiting for deliveries from TSMC, which works 24/7 to prepare as many Kirin 9000s as possible before the fixed US authorities deadline (September 14).
Recall that from the above date, companies using hardware and software from the United States are not allowed to do business with Huawei, that is, the Chinese have about 10 days to fill their warehouses as much as possible with various components, including the Kirin 9000. At the moment there is no data on how many chipsets TSMC will have time to prepare. Although, according to experts, this number will reach 15 million and cover the need for the Mate 40. The nearest presentation date for the Kirin 9000 can be considered September 10, when the HDC 2020 exhibition starts.
