Huawei Mate 40 with 5 nanometers Kirin 1000 chipset
Despite all the commercial tensions with the US government and the Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic, the Chinese manufacturer Huawei continues to launch several smartphones around the world, maintaining its already known timeline for the top of the line, which includes models for the P series ( announced in the first semester ) and the Mate series, reserved for the second semester.
As we are almost six months from the end of this year, at that time of the championship the first rumors about the Mate 40 series start to appear.
The Chinese company is currently working on its flagships with the Kirin 990 5G chipset, made official in conjunction with the Mate 30 in September last year, and its successor is expected with the brand’s new flagship processor, the 5 nanometers Kirin 1000 chipset.
Recent rumors suggest that the new chip to be included in Mate 40 (identified internally as Baltimore) must be manufactured by TSMC in 5-nanometer lithography.
The device and SoC would have launches scheduled for the month of October according to a recent publication in Weibo, with sales estimates of up to 8 million units by the end of 2020 – very bold numbers, when we consider the drop in sales in the segment of smartphones.
Among other features of the Mate 40 (which has even won a concept ) we would have a set of four cameras, a curious circular screen around the rear cameras.
More details about the notebook should continue to emerge in the coming days, so be sure to keep an eye on NUpgrade to stay on top of news.
