Until the end of the year, there are not many events that can be of interest. One of them diminished this week after Samsung revealed its new phones. The next big presentation, which will show something interesting, will be in September and this has already been confirmed by one of the leaders Huawei. Very soon the company will show the new Huawei Mate 40 and it simply cannot be uninteresting. The company continues to overcome difficult times and every step is interesting. What else do we know about this smartphone, besides the fact that it will soon appear?
Maybe he will be like that, maybe not.
When Huawei Mate 40 comes out
According to a post posted on Weibo by Richard Yu, CEO of Consumer Business Huawei, it won't take long. The top manager confirmed our guesses that the new smartphone of the Huawei Mate 40 series will be released in September this year.
In addition, Yu also added that the Mate 40 series devices will be equipped with the latest and greatest chipset Huawei. We have already said more than once that, most likely, it will receive the name Kirin 1000 or Kirin 1020. True, the name so far we can only predict on the basis of earlier rumors.
This time, the information came from a person we often see at presentations – Richard Yu.
Specifications Huawei Mate 40
Notably, the Huawei Mate 40 series will have a total of four variants. I have already criticized Samsung for this. It looks like you'll have to get a little outraged again. Among the versions in which the new product will be released will be Huawei Mate 40 Standard Edition, Mate 40 Pro, Mate 40 Pro + and Mate 40 Porsche Design. Okay, the latter can't be considered a full-fledged model, it's just a limited edition.
All variants of the Mate 40 will have a Kirin 1000 or 1020 chipset. Moreover, it is reported that it will be as much as 50% more powerful than the latest generation Kirin 990. Apparently, the Kirin 1000 or 1020 will be based on a 5nm process technology. It is codenamed 'Baltimore' and has a new Cortex-A78 architecture.
There is no doubt that the camera of the new smartphone will be at the cutting edge of technology. Huawei is usually doing well in this direction, but it is the release of a new smartphone of the P series or Mate that makes the camera ratings slightly change. Even if not everyone believes in them, the cameras at Huawei are really good.
As usual the optics will be developed in collaboration with Leica. Rumors have long been saying that the main camera sensor will have a resolution of 108 megapixels. The company will also not forget about the new lenses that will allow more light to pass through, making shooting in low light conditions easier and photos of better quality.
No, well, it’s unlikely, of course.
What's new in Huawei Mate 40
According to Seekdevice, CEO Richard Yu also added that the upcoming Huawei Mate 40 series will be updated in terms of design, form factor, performance, improved connectivity 5G, battery and fast charging. That is, if you believe this, then we will get a completely new phone. Although, personally, I doubt it, since literally small changes are enough to say that this will be new.
Most likely, the basis will still be based on last year's device, albeit heavily modified. I just hope that it will not have such strongly curved edges of the screen. There is a feeling that Huawei realized her mistake and is ready to correct it.
The US administration, apparently, is not in the mood to simplify relations with Huawei. And if the US ban continues, the upcoming Mate 40 series smartphones will also ship without Google Play services, and instead will be equipped with mobile services Huawei. Of course, the company continues to develop them, and the AppGallery app store has almost everything that 99% of users need, but for many, the absence of Google Play is critical. On the other hand, this does not prevent the company from setting sales records and entering the top sellers of smartphones in many countries of the world, including Russia.
Smartphones Huawei Mate 40 out of the box will have to run EMUI 11, which will be built on the base of Android 11. All this should also appear in September, but there is a possibility that there will be a slight delay start of sales. However, this will not affect the presentation in any way, and we have long been accustomed to the fact that smartphones begin to be sold only a couple of weeks after they are told about them from the stage.
The time will come and we will find out everything.
As Sold Huawei
Richard Yu also highlighted the fact that Huawei has managed to become the number one smartphone manufacturer in the world in terms of shipments. Q2 2020 Huawei shipped 55.8 million devices. In this ranking, the company even surpassed Samsung with 53.7 million shipments. Why this happened and I talked about the numbers in more detail in this article. Many of you have actively discussed them on our social networks, including Telegram chat.
He clearly added with pride that even after the ban on working with many global companies, Huawei retains its leading position in the market. Now the main thing is not to impose new sanctions against them after such words. Although, the one who introduces them sees everything perfectly.
What will be Huawei Mate 40, time will tell, but now there is one less mystery. We already know that on October 8 we will be shown the Google Pixel 5, but even before that we will see the new top Huawei. We also know that the new Snapdragon processors will be introduced.
