Rumor: Huawei Mate 40 Series May Come With A 108mp Sensor

The Mate 40 series is Huawei’s upcoming flagship series scheduled for launch in a few months. Known for bringing new technology including a new Kirin flagship processor to the market, the Mate line is one we all look forward to. A new report says Huawei may copy a Samsung tradition for its upcoming flagships.

According to Teme (@RODENT950), the leaker who is known for Huawei and Honor-related leaks, the Mate 40 series powered by the Kirin 1000 processor may be exclusive to China. He goes on to say that Huawei will follow Samsung’s strategy of using dual chips in its phones no thanks to the recent ban that restricts it from getting new HiSilicon chipsets from its suppliers.

There are reportedly only 8 million processors there and Mate’s sales are often over 10 million units.

In all likelihood, it is Mediatek, Admittedly, there have been rumors that Huawei would buy SD865+ processors from Qualcomm too but i don’t trust those very much.

Wondering which chipset that will be? We were too. A reply under the tweet by the leaker says the processor for other markets will likely be one from MediaTek. While he didn’t specify, the Dimensity 1000+ seems like the best bet unless the Taiwanese semiconductor company launches a more powerful processor before the launch of the Mate 40 series.

It is also mentioned that Huawei may buy Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 865 Plus processor. That is not surprising as there are reports that Qualcomm may actually be granted a license to sell to Huawei. Back in May, a market analyst for KeyBanc Capital Markets revealed that Huawei will use Qualcomm’s Snapdragon processors in its P50 and Mate 50 series. The analyst, John Vinh believes that the Commerce Department’s Bureau of Industry and Security will eventually grant Qualcomm the license to sell chipsets to Huawei.

Teme also revealed that Huawei doesn’t even have enough Kirin processors for the Mate 40 series. The Chinese giant has only 8 million units which is less than the average number (10 million units) of Mate phones sold annually.

What do you think about Huawei adopting a dual-chip strategy? Do you want it to use a MediaTek processor or a Snapdragon processor for the international variant of the Mate 40 series? Let us know in the comment box below.
