Huawei will hold its annual Mate event on October 22, but unlike previous years it will be a China-exclusive deal with the phone itself probably seeing little international availability before the early days of 2021.
Still, it’s going to feature one or more of the most exciting smartphones this year so you probably wouldn’t want to miss it.
Huawei Mate 40 Pro
The centerpiece of the event will, of course, be the Huawei Mate 40 Pro. It will improve on just about everything compared to the Mate 30 Pro, outside of the lack of Google Services.
A detailed rumor by Roland Quandt says the Mate 40 Pro will come in Silver and Black with a base 8/256GB configuration and two 12GB RAM models with 256GB or 512GB of storage, respectively. Storage will be expandable through Nano Memory cards. The phone will launch with Android 10 + EMUI 11 out of the box, paired with Huawei Media Services.
