In October 2020, Huawei launched its annual flagship lineup, Huawei Mate 40 in China. This series comes with pre-installed EMUI 11, a powerful Kirin 9000/9000E processor, advanced camera technology, and more.
Recently, a Weibo tipster – Digital Chat Station shared a screenshot that shows that Huawei Mate 40 Pro smartphone receiving system parameter update with package size 1.3MB.

NSA (Non-Standalone Access) and SA (Standalone Access) are the two 5G network modes. NSA relies on the 4G network facilities to provide more speed and higher data bandwidth. A 5G-enabled smartphone will connect to a 5G or 4G network depending on conditions.
On the other hand, SA is the true 5G network, where the 5G network has its dedicated 5G facilities to provide enormous speed improvements and minimal network latency (delay). The 5G SA network is independent of the 4G network.
Users need to restart their devices to apply new changes. Currently, it’s not confirmed whether it’s rolling for users outside of the China market.
