There is not much time left before the presentation of the Huawei Mate 40 series, followed by the start of sales in China. With all the recent leaks, only the question of price remains the most relevant. Some interesting information has been posted on Chinese social media on this subject.
Huawei Mate 40 series pricing in China has been revealed
If they are confirmed, then the simplest version of the Huawei Mate 40 Pro with 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage memory will be priced at 6799 yuan (about $1,000); and for the version with 512 GB internal memory – 7799 yuan (about $1,150).
If you are interested in theMate 40 Pro+ (12/256 GB), you will have to pay 8999 yuan ($1,350); but this amount pales in comparison to the Mate 40 RS: 12,999 and 14,999 yuan ($1,950 and $2,250) for the version 12/256 and 16/512 GB of memory, respectively. Recall that the prospects for a release outside of China are still vague. It is unlikely that the Mate 40 Pro will arrive in Europe before the end of 2020.

On the same day, pre-orders for the Mate 40 in China will begin. And it will be available in Chinese stores on October 30. Unfortunately, there is no international release information available. According to previously available information; it is unlikely that this will happen before the end of the year, and may not happen at all.
At the October 22 event, we will see three models: the Mate 40, Mate 40 Pro and Mate 40 Pro+, while Porsche Design will only be a Pro + variant. It is not said directly, but, obviously, on the same day, they will finally talk about the Kirin 9000. Also, the Mate 40 should receive a new Leica camera, a waterfall screen with rounded edges, fast and wireless charging technologies, as well as new software with the ability to switch to Harmony OS later.
