Huawei has revealed its most awaited flagship series, Huawei Mate 40 series on October 22. This flagship series offers the latest hardware and software technology, which includes the Kirin 9000 processor with 5G modem, professional cameras, 88-degree ultra curved display, faster wired and wireless charging, and much more.

Huawei Mate 40 series comes in four variants, Huawei Mate 40, Mate 40 Pro, Mate 40 Pro+, and Mate 40 RS Porsche Design. These devices continue a similar design as the previous Mate series and bring a new circular camera design.

Previously, Richard Yu, CEO of Consumer Business Group revealed some of the most important information about the development of the Huawei Mate 40 series. According to Richard, the Huawei Mate 40 series took over three years of research and development and an investment of over $560 million U.S. dollars.


Now, Bruce Lee, Vice president of Huawei’s CBG Product Line, mentioned that the latest 5nm Kirin 9000 processor has an uplink rate of 6.8 times and 2.6 time downlink rate compared to the iPhone 12.

Bruce also said the Mate 40 series took three-year-long research and development, spending over $560 million (excluding chips), and includes the highest manpower, time, and financial investment.

He mentioned that the Huawei Mate 40 series is the first series that equips with 5nm chips. Huawei has also faced many challenges because IPs based on 5nm technology are not available outside markets so, a large number of self-developed IPs are used, which increases the workload.

On the other hand, an organized team is created for 5nm technology three years ago, which does research on 5nm technology. Three years is enough time for researching, polishing, verification, testing, find for errors, and resolving them.
