Now we will have to see how exactly Huawei will set the things up, although the Huawei Mate 40 and Huawei Mate 40 Pro could already be presented in October, they will only later be on sale in markets outside of China.
The Huawei Mate 40 is said to have a display of 6.5 inches. While the Mate 40 Pro is even said to be 6.8 inches. EMUI 11 as a system cover and 5G connectivity should be set. It remains to be seen whether the Kirin 9000 will be installed as a chip.
Huawei Mate 40 may not arrive at global markets this year
Regarding the problems and the fate of Huawei, users are divided into two main camps: some believe that the company’s days in the smartphone market are numbered, others are confident that it will be able to cope with all the problems and will show the United States what it can do. In this situation, it remains for us to observe the development of events, as well as those new products that the company will release, including the upcoming Huawei Mate40 series.
One of the main premieres of Huawei and the industry as a whole in the second half of this year will be the release of the flagships of the Mate 40 series. Rumor has it that the announcement of the devices will take place no earlier than November this year. Huawei itself remains calm and urges its fans to wait a bit, promising that the premiere will take place as scheduled. But at the same time, it does not specify when it will happen.
Meanwhile, the reputable insider Evan Blass has announced that the Huawei Mate40 series will not be released this year. We’ll have to wait until 2021. However, he did not specify whether he was talking about the global market or the Chinese market. Maybe, the announcement of the new devices will take place in China this year. But they will enter the global market only next year.
Rumor has it that Huawei is soberly assessing the situation. And, it does not expect a large demand for the flagships Mate 40. This was the reason that it has reduced orders for components for these smartphones by 30-40%.
