Huawei Mate 40 and Mate 40 Pro will run on different OS versions

Huawei always has two smartphones that the whole world is waiting for, even if people are not going to buy them. These are top-end devices that are interesting to everyone, even from the point of view of technology development. Naturally, I'm talking about smartphones of the "P" series and the "Mate" series. We already saw the first one at the beginning of the year and got to know it very well, and the second will appear in a few weeks, but we are already waiting for one controversial point in it, which has not yet been properly explained by logic. If you believe the information that has appeared recently, then different smartphones of the same series will work under different operating systems. What is going on?

Huawei Mate 40 operating system


We've already covered when the new Huawei Mate 40 will arrive, which will be interesting in terms of technology and how the company is fighting pressure from the US government. We already know that, most likely, this will be the last smartphone based on the company's own chipset, which will be called Kirin 1000 or Kirin 1200. In addition, we continue to receive information about what else will be new and interesting in this smartphone.

Usually, all smartphones in the same series, Huawei uses the same operating system, but it seems that this time everything will be somewhat different. According to popular leak source Evan Blass, the Huawei Mate 40 Pro will ship with EMUI 11 on top of Android 11. However, the more affordable Huawei Mate 40 will get EMUI 10. x on top of Android 10.

In the near future, the company will present its new EMUI 11 system at the Huawei Developer Conference (HDC) 2020. This system will be based on Google's open-source Android 11 OS. Let us remind you that at HDC 2019, Huawei introduced its first AOSP-based system. This is how we got EMUI 10, built on Android 10, which was installed on all smartphones of the Huawei Mate 30 series.

Now you can draw any concepts for a new smartphone, but you have to wait for its official release

New Huawei smartphone


The codename for the Huawei Mate 40 series is "Noah". This will be the first time that one Huawei series will ship with different EMUI versions. Currently, there is no explanation for this behavior of the company.

We would like all smartphones to be able to upgrade to the latest version of the software, i.e. EMUI 11, built on Android 11. This is appropriate even from the point of view of security, which smartphones will receive updates in the future.

Will Huawei Mate 40 Lite be released


In addition to the two models, the new series may have another model - Huawei Mate 40 Lite. If what was said above about the operating system version is true, then the "Lite" version will probably also get the last year's operating system. To get more information, we will have to wait for HDC 2020. This event will be held from September 10, 2020, to September 12, 2020. The event will be held online.

Huawei Mate 40 Features


Recent leaks and rumors indicate that the Huawei Mate 40 series will have a 90 Hz refresh rate display. This option seems more likely due to the fact that the company puts a lot of emphasis on the autonomy of its devices and may abandon the gluttonous display with a frequency of 120 HZ.

The 5nm processor for the new smartphone will appear before mid-September and will be the last serial Kirin chip on which all the company's flagships of previous years worked.

According to @MobileWaferDarren, Huawei will need a lot of chips by the end of the year. The company will need mobile chips of 5, 7, 16, and 28 nm. It will also need a Bluetooth chip for the TWS headset developed by HiSilicon. For now, the company can order such chips from TSMC, which it actively uses. They will soon lose this opportunity.

Judging from previous reports, in addition to the fact that the Huawei Mate 40 will receive a processor with a 5-nm process, it is known that it will combine the architecture of the Cortex A77 or A78 and the Mali G77/G78 GPU architecture. This combination guarantees the best performance for a high refresh rate screen, up to 120Hz, if Huawei still chooses it.

The name of the new chipset still raises some questions, since it is not completely clear where the company will stop. It is said that it will be called Kirin 1000 or Kirin 1200. So far, it is clear that it has the code name "Baltimore".

When you have questions, requests, suggestions, complaints, requests, comments, ideas, and just the mood to discuss the news with someone, do not hesitate to visit our Telegram chat.

Let me remind you that the company's previous processor was called Kirin 990 and used the Cortex A76 architecture. Based on this, we can assume that the new product should be "updated" in this regard. With this combination, the performance of the CPU and GPU will dramatically increase.

To get more accurate information, you need to be patient and wait for the official announcement. However, high performance is exactly what the company needs right now against the background of the impressive characteristics of another top-end Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 Plus processor and solutions from Apple.
