The Mate 40 series phones will officially appear on October 22, according to Tweet The Chinese company Huawei on Twitter hours before now.
This phone is likely to be the last of its Kirin chipset – at least for the foreseeable future – due to the ongoing economic pressure from the United States.
“This year may be the last generation of Huawei Kirin chipset,” said Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei’s Consumer Business Unit, at a conference on August 7.

The United States has accused Huawei of building back doors in the network’s infrastructure, ostensibly to aid the Chinese government’s espionage efforts. Huawei has denied the Trump administration’s accusations of espionage, but the Trump administration has put the famous Chinese company and 114 of its subsidiaries on List of prohibited entities to deal with In May 2019, which means that US companies have not been able to sell the technology to the company without explicit approval from the US government.
For the same reason, the phone will not come with the main Google services, as we saw in the recent Huawei and Honor phones.
There are no rumors until the moment about the specifications of the phone, but it is likely that we will see two models: normal and Pro from the phone, with prices approaching 900 and 1000 dollars, respectively.
