The Huawei Mate 40 series is coming very soon and expectations are growing. Although we have some official confirmations, most of the reports on this series are speculation. According to another speculation, the Huawei Mate 40 series can be available in four versions. The report on Weibo (@ 鹏鹏 君) claims that this series will have Huawei Mate 40, Mate 40 Pro, Mate 40 Porsche Design and Mate 40 Pro +. It also supports the entire 5G series and is currently strengthening key manufacturing and debugging.
In addition, this series will be equipped with unique features in terms of product performance, system optimization and ID design. The Huawei Mate 40 series continues the naming of the P40 series. Keep in mind that the P40 series has Huawei P40, Huawei P40 Pro and Huawei P40 Pro +. However, the Mate 40 series adds the Porsche design version.
Although the source of this information is linked to some authentic reports, there is no official confirmation that the Mate 40 series will have a Mate 40 Pro + and a Porsche design. So it's best to take this with a grain of salt.
SPECULATIONS OF THE HUAWEI MATE 40 SERIES
Recent speculations show that the Huawei Mate 40 series will be equipped with a 90 Hz display. Even though there are two samples (90 Hz and 120 Hz), Huawei cares so much about its batteries that it will most likely use a 90 Hz display. The 5 nm processor will be delivered before mid-September. According to @MobileWaferDarren, Huawei will need a lot of chips before the end of the year. The company requires 5nm, 7nm, 16nm and 28nm mobile chips. A TWS headset Bluetooth chip developed by HiSilicon is also required. All of these chips will be available before mid-September.
Previous reports indicate that the Mate 40 series will use a 5 nm Kirin processor. This chip also combines either the Cortex A77 or A78 CPU architecture + the Mali G77 / G78 GPU architecture. Such a combination guarantees better performance for the 120 Hz screen experience with high refresh rate.
There was some confusion as to the exact name of the next Kirin 5nm chip. While there has been a report claiming it will be Kirin 1000, others say it will be Kirin 1020. In both cases, there are reports that the Kirin 1000 development code is "Baltimore". Keep in mind that the Kirin 990 5G uses the Cortex A76 architecture. This triggers speculation that the Kirin 1000 could use the Cortex A77 / A78 architecture and the Mali G77 / G78 GPU architecture. This combination dramatically increases the performance of the CPU and GPU. Overall, we have to wait a few months to get the exact architecture of this chip.
