It’s no question the whole world has heard about Huawei - well, at least everyone who has a smartphone. Huawei is the largest phone maker in the world as of now. Now whether or not Samsung reclaims that spot in the near future is unknown, but even staying on top of Apple in terms of mobile device sales is impressive in its own regard. The flagships from Huawei each year go head to head with the likes of Samsung Galaxy lineup of smartphones, and Apple’s latest and greatest as well. The P40 series have been seriously impressive, and Huawei is looking to continue that run onwards with the upcoming Mate 40 as well.
We’ve gotten quite some leaks over time about what the Mate 40 might look like, and what features it’s going to pack - and the most important question of all, when will the phone come out. Fortunately, we’ve got a few of those queries covered. The upcoming Huawei flagship is going to feature what’s being called a “strange display” with a 90Hz refresh rate for it. Some users will be disappointed by the lack of a 120Hz option, but Huawei has opted for the 90Hz one because of battery concerns and the minimal difference between the two. The chipset that will be used in the phone will of course be Huawei’s very own Kirin processor, and we’re going to see the next generation of it as well on the Mate 40. Rumours suggest that it’s going to be a 5nm chip, which is understandable considering the Snapdragon 875 will also be of that size.
Huawei faced quite a lot of issues with the manufacturing of the Mate 40, including the collection of enough chips to start mass manufacturing for the phone. That paired with the U.S ban on the company has led to an inevitable delay in the release. However, Huawei has promised that the phone will be available in the market by the 4th quarter of 2020, and users will be able to get their hands on the device. 8 million is the target specified by the manufacturer by that date, as they’ll work on more if and when needed. We will share more information about the Mate 40 as we get closer to the expected release.
