Huawei is still pushing forward with new smartphone launches and other launches, despite having all odds stacked against itself. Last year, the company launched the Huawei Mate 30 series, the first smartphones from the company that, as a direct result of U.S. trade sanctions, didn’t ship with Google Mobile Services preloaded. Earlier this year, they followed up with the Huawei P40 series, a trio of smartphones that packed even more bleeding-edge features like 10X optical zoom and 40W wireless charging (in the Pro+ model). We’re expecting the Chinese OEM to unveil the new Huawei Mate 40 series, and rumors suggest that these could come to us as early as next month.
The launch of the Mate 40 series is expected around mid-October 2020. How exactly the Chinese OEM goes about selling this smartphone in parts of the world after the effect of the sanction deadline, remains to be seen.
