At least in Europe, there is greater interest in the Mate series. According to the plan, Huawei should launch the Mate 40 series in October. Huawei boss Richard Yu personally released the first trailer via a video message. But it is still uncertain whether we can fully purchase the Mate 40 Pro 2020-digital even if it produces Kirin 9000 chips. It has features that competitors lack and are severely restricted.
The Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro were only sold in the Chinese market, and only a few months later they were launched in small quantities. There is also a variant in Europe. At least Evan Blass, a well-known American leaker, said that this situation may be repeated in Mate 40. He is worried that the Mate 40 or Mate 40 Pro may not be available until next year. According to him, the announcement is likely to be held in October 2020.
Sounds like, if you're waiting on the Huawei Mate40 series, you won't be able to get your hands on one until next year…

Much fewer kirin chips than planned?
It is not clear whether Huawei will initially only provide the Mate 40 series in China after the launch, and then re-release it internationally in 2021-possibly using other chipsets. Since September 15, the United States has strengthened sanctions. Such as prohibiting TSMC from continuing to deliver products to Huawei. A leaker from China has been very reliable so far. He claimed that Huawei currently only has 8.8 million first and possibly last 5nm Kirin chipsets Kirin 9000. It is much less than originally planned.
Even if the Kirin 9000 (previously known as Kirin 1000 or Kirin 1020) currently has poor prospects-at least it should have some advantages over other 5G-capable flagship chips (such as integrated 5G modems). So far, Kirin 9000 will solve it by itself, because the 5nm Apple A14 SoC is not the case. Of course, there are already 7nm chipsets such as Snapdragon 865 on the market, nor will it.
Huawei increase the charging power
In addition to the new processor, Huawei may also increase the power of the charger. But because China’s 3C authority has certified 66-watt power supply, it is more conservative than the rest of the Chinese smartphone industry, which has reached 100 or 100, respectively. Consumes 120 watts of power-partly based on Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 5. The design is now roughly known based on visual CAD leaks. The design is based on the previous design, but the details have been improved, such as the volume control is now physically available again.
Yu Yudong, head of Huawei’s mobile business, confirmed in a short video that it is expected to be launched soon and that the video has also been taken over by Huawei Mobile UK (see below). So it is certain that the Mate 40 series can be used at least for a long time and will start in Europe.
