At the 2020 China Informatization Summit, Huawei’s consumer business CEO Richard Yu said that the Mate 40 series will be released in September this year, which will use Huawei’s new Kirin chips.
This Kirin chip should refer to Kirin 9000 series, it based on TSMC’s 5nm process with code-named “Baltimore”. Its CPU will be upgraded to Cortex-A78, it is reported that the performance is 50% higher than Kirin 990.
Although faced with these various variables before, the industry broke the news that the Kirin 9000 series 5nm chips will be delivered before September, and Huawei’s product shipments in the second half of the year will not have a big problem.
As for the Mate 40 mobile phone, this series will have four versions of Mate 40 Standard Edition, Mate 40 Pro, Mate 40 Pro+, and Mate 40 Porsche Design this year. All phones are equipped with curved screens. However, the curvature of the curved screen of different versions is not the same, and the visual effect is different.
This time the Mate 40 series will be upgraded in appearance, 5G, performance, battery, and fast charging. The biggest highlight is the new generation of the camera system. It is said that it will be equipped with a 9p free-form curved lens.
In his speech, Richard Yu revealed that Huawei’s consumer business sales revenue was 255.8 billion yuan in the first half of the year, and the global shipment of mobile phones was 105 million units.
Richard Yu said that in the second quarter of this year, Huawei’s global shipments of mobile phones surpassed Samsung, becoming the world’s number one. He said that even though it was an unfair game when we were sanctioned, we still ranked first in the world.
