According to the “Science Innovation Board Daily”, Huawei’s new flagship smartphone, the Mate 40 series will be official in China on October 30. Furthermore, the report states that Huawei will also release a smart car product. This new product is a car after-installation device. It aggregates most of the functions of Huawei’s smartphones suitable for automotive mobile scenarios. It works with functions such as listening to music, watching videos, making calls, surfing the Internet and playing games.
We already know that the Huawei Mate 40 series will not be alone at this press conference. At the global conference, we expect the release of other Huawei devices. Here are other devices that arrive with the Mate 40 series

Huawei Mate 40 series – four models are coming
The Huawei Mate 40 series global press conference is scheduled for October 22, 20 o’clock, Beijing time (14:00, October 22, Central European Summer Time). Fro what we already know, the Huawei Mate 40 series will have four smartphones. In addition to the Huawei Mate 40, we will also have Mate 40 Pro, Mate 40 Pro+, and Mate40 RS Porsche Design.
Furthermore, Huawei Mate 40 series is expected to use Kirin 9000 chips. Yu Chengdong previously stated that the Kirin 9000 will likely be the last generation of Huawei’s Kirin high-end chips.
There is a strong limit to the available supply of this chip. After the ban on Huawei, TSMC had a limited time to deliver all Huawei’s orders. Subsequently, there were reports that TSMC was only able to deliver 8.8 million units. Huawei’s order is about 15 million chips. According to analysts, the 8.8 million chips will only take Huawei for about six months. To this end, we may not be seeing much of the Huawei Mate 40 series. It will easily go out of stock. This means that whoever wants to grab any of these smartphones has to be proactive.
There are also reports that Huawei will use this flagship chip for its upcoming tablet. If this is true, it will further reduce the availability of the Huawei Mate40 series.
