CEO of Display Supply Chain Consultants (DSCC), Ross Young says that Huawei Mate 40 Pro, Mate 40 Pro+, and Porsche Design will come with 6.78-inch display.
Seems to me the Mate 40 Pro, Pro+ and Porsche versions will also use the larger 6.78" display. This also explains why there are 3 panel suppliers for this model vs. just one for the Mate 40.

Huawei is likely to unveil its new processor at IFA 2020 event on September 3, 2020, followed by EMUI 11 at HDC 2020 in September. So, October may be the best time for the Mate 40 series launch or it may also be related to the device manufacturing time by Huawei.
Previous information and reports suggest that the Huawei Mate 40 (standard) will come with a 6.5-inch FHD+ OLED display and Mate 40 Pro features a 6.7-inch display with 2K resolution. Both of these display has 90Hz refresh rate and comes with curved edges but the Mate 40 Pro has bigger display curves due to the waterfall screen.
The Huawei Mate 40 series will be powered by Kirin 9000 5nm processor and runs the EMUI 11 (Android 11) out of the box. Also, these phones may get a charging capacity boost of up to 65W.
The official launch date is yet to come.
