The new Huawei Mate 40 range could be formalized in a few weeks, but the marketing would not take place before 2021.
Last month, we discovered, via various renders , what the future Huawei Mate 40 would (probably) look like. Recall that the Huawei Mate 30 was presented in September 2019 and that it was then very likely to see the Chinese group draw its successor this September. However, according to Evan Blass, the new Huawei Mate 40 range will not be available until… 2021.

The Huawei Mate 40 not before 2021?
Just recently, Huawei decided to reduce its component orders for its future Mate 40s by 30%, likely anticipating a significant drop in sales. According to some media, the Chinese group could go from a production of 200 million smartphones, to “only” 50 million units in 2021.
For a few months now, the difficulties have accumulated for Huawei. Obviously, US sanctions prevent Huawei from using the license provided by Google for Android smartphones, which includes applications such as Play Store, YouTube, or Gmail. To remedy this, Huawei recently unveiled its HarmonyOS ecosystem, which will be integrated into its smartphones from April 2021.
Since September 15, Huawei is no longer able to equip its smartphones with Kirin chips, due to lack of free access to all of its suppliers. ” This year could be the last generation of high-end Huawei Kirin chips” recently explained the president of the firm, Richard Yu.
Regarding the future Huawei Mate 40, still according to Evan Blass, the smartphone could well be formalized in the coming weeks, but the latter will not be marketed until next year. It remains to be seen now what form the marketing of future smartphones of the Chinese group will take, still accused of representing a threat to the national security of the United States. To be continued.
