The same tipster claimed earlier that the lineup will include the Huawei Mate 40, Mate 40 Pro, Mate 40 Pro+, and the limited Mate 40 Pro+ Porsche Design. All these models will be powered by TSMC’s 5nm HiSilicon Kirin 9000 chips but will vary in display sizes. The camera setup is expected to be top-notch with as Huawei’s flagships have always excelled in this aspect. We expect it to reach top rankings in DxOMark’s Smartphone camera rankings.
The Huawei Mate 40 series is also rumored to be the last set of Huawei devices to feature top of the line Kirin chips amid the US sanctions.
There is no official word on a launch date yet, but pre-launch teasers should start coming in next week.
