This leak comes from the WinFuture site. Quoted detikINET from XDA Developers, Monday (19/10/2020) Mate 40 Pro will use an OLED panel measuring 6.76 inches with a resolution of 2772 x 1344.
Just like the regular edition Mate 40, this Pro variant will also have a curved screen and use a pill-shaped punch hole design on the top left side to place the two front cameras.
Like previous rumors, this leak confirms that the Mate 40 Pro will be powered by a Kirin 9000 with 5nm fabrication and an integrated 5G modem. GPU Mali G78 will handle graphics matters.
Based on the WinFuture report, Mate 40 Pro offered in Europe only offers one memory configuration, namely 8GB RAM and 256GB internal memory without a slot for microSD.
From the existing renders, the Mate 40 Pro has a unique camera module shape because it looks like the iPod Shuffle button. In the center of the circle is the Leica branding. The design of this module is different from the leaked Mate 40 variant which shows an octagon or octagonal camera module.
The camera specifications consist of a 50 MP main camera with OIS, a 20 MP ultra-wide sensor, and a 12 MP telephoto sensor. While on the front there is a 13 MP camera and a Time-of-Flight sensor.

With the goal of bringing the latest technology to more people across the country, Huawei introduced the HUAWEI MateBook X Pro and MateBook 13, ideal tools for telecommuting. In addition, it locally launched the noise-canceling headphones, the HUAWEI FreeBuds 3i, and the company’s latest smartwatch, the HUAWEI Watch Fit.
Huawei just released a teaser poster for the line Mate 40 before being officially announced next week. From the poster, it can be seen that this phone will have a camera design that is quite unique.
Quoted detikINET from GSM Arena, Friday (16/10/2020) the poster shows the silhouette of a cellphone with an octagon or octagonal camera module. The poster was uploaded by a Huawei boss He Gang.
Apart from the camera design, you can also see the orange power button and the volume button on the right side of the phone. This means that Huawei is removing the virtual buttons introduced in the Mate 30 line.

So far, leaks about Mate 40 shows a camera design similar to that of the Mate 30, namely four rear cameras that are placed in a round module in the center of the phone.
Renders showing the design also appeared, but the rumors seemed to be broken because this official poster was uploaded directly by Huawei’s boss.
There is another possibility that Huawei will have a different design for each member of the Mate 40 family. But there are also rumors that the Mate 40 Pro, Mate 40 Pro + and Mate 40 RS Porsche Design will have the same camera design.
Until now there have not been many further leaks about the specifications of the Mate 40, even though the launch is not long. Recently the Mate 40 Pro variant that carries the Kirin 9000 processor stopped by AnTuTu and recorded a score of 693,605.
The tested variant runs Android 10 and has 8GB RAM and 256GB UFS 3.1 internal memory. The UX test results show the Mate 40 Pro display has a 90 Hz refresh rate.
Fortunately we don’t have to wait long to find out the designs, specifications and prices Huawei Mate 40. This latest flagship phone will be announced on October 22.
Huawei in addition to marketing its own cellphones, it also has a subsidiary Honor which focuses more on the youth segment and in the middle to lower price range. The latest news, most divisions Honor will be released by Huawei on fans, one of which is Xiaomi.
As quoted detikINET from Reuters, Huawei according to related sources is in talks with Honor enthusiasts on a deal that may be worth up to USD 3.7 billion. Apart from Xiaomi, there are companies from Digital China Group Co Ltd to TCL.
According to the source, Honor’s assets for sale have not yet been decided. Possible plans include the Honor brand, research and development capabilities and supply chain management. It is likely that purchases will be made entirely in cash.
Huawei which is currently the second largest smartphone manufacturer in the world did not give a statement when confirmed, nor did Xiaomi. The reason for Honor’s sales is likely because Huawei has chosen to focus on its own brand of cellphones amid sanctions from the United States.
The Honor brand itself was founded in 2013 and operates quite independently from Huawei. This brand is quite well known among young people because it offers good spec mobile phones at affordable prices.
Honor smartphone sales accounted for 26% of Huawei’s total sales in the second quarter of 2020, according to research firm Canalys. However, because the price is cheap, the profit margin is thin from the Honor business.
Ming Chi Kuo, industry analyst at TF International Securities, thinks that if there is a sale, it will be a win-win situation for Honor itself.
“If Honor is independent of Huawei, their purchase of components is no longer subject to a US ban on Huawei. This will help Honor’s smartphone business and its suppliers, “he said.
As for Xiaomi, it is actually known for its cheap high-spec smartphones like Honor. However, maybe they want to expand their mobile portfolio.
Jakarta, CNBC Indonesia – Huawei Technologies is reportedly in talks to sell Honor smartphones to Digital China Group Co Ltd and other interested investors. Is this to avoid sanctions imposed by US President Donald Trump?
Reuters reported by citing a source on Wednesday (14/10/2020), the value of this transaction could reach 25 billion yuan or the equivalent of Rp 54.82 trillion. (assuming 1 yuan = IDR 2,192.33).
It is not yet known what assets will be sold to investors but it is possible that the Honor brand, research and development division and supply chain business are related, said two sources who did not wish to be named.
Apart from the Digital China Group, Chinese electronics manufacturers TCL and Xiaomi Corp are reportedly interested in buying Huawei’s Honor business. This transaction may have been in cash and could be worth less than 25 billion yuan.
Huawei is refocusing its business priorities after being sanctioned by President Trump last year. Huawei will choose to focus on developing high-end Huawei phones.
Honor is a smartphone brand founded by Huawei in 2013. This phone targets young people and is price sensitive. Honor is a brand that is not targeted by the United States (US).
Huawei and TCL declined to comment on this news. Meanwhile Xiaomi and Digital China Group did not respond to requests for confirmation.
For TF International Securities analyst Kuo Ming-chi, Honor’s sales move is a win-win solution or the best solution for the Honor brand, its suppliers and the Chinese electronics industry.
“If Honor is independent from Huawei, its component purchases will no longer be subject to the US ban on Huawei. This will help Honor’s smartphone business and its suppliers,” he wrote in a research note last week.
Last year, the US government passed a rule forcing most US companies not to do business with Huawei, saying Huawei’s technology could be infiltrated by the Chinese government for espionage activities. Huawei has repeatedly denied being a national security risk.
Honor-brand smartphones accounted for 14.6 million, or 26% of the 55.8 million smartphones Huawei shipped in the second quarter of this year, according to an estimate from research firm Canalys.
But the margins for low-end phones can be very thin, and Honor posted a net profit of less than 5 billion yuan from a source’s estimated 70-80 billion yuan last year.
Huawei is scheduled to announce the Mate 40 series on 22 October. Various leaks are already circulating, and the latest is an example of a camera photo Huawei Mate 40 which is the mainstay of these devices.
Examples of camera shots Huawei Mate 40 Huawei’s Head of Smartphone Unit, He Gang, was exhibited. On the Weibo social network account, he posted a profile photo in the form of a photo of the Moon during the day with quite impressive details.

Quoted from GSM Arena, Tuesday (10/13/2020) Huawei was one of the first companies to make moon photo shooting a trend, and a kind of standard for smartphone zoom capabilities.
Huawei also always tries to improve the performance of the camera on its cellphone which is designed in collaboration with the well-known camera company Leica. Of course, Huawei smartphone users hope that there will be more improvements to the Leica camera in the latest Mate series this time.
Leaks suggest that the Mate 40 series’ main camera will carry a 50 MP sensor, and hopefully, the current 7680 fps mode can record smoother 1080p ultra-slow-mo video.
Beyond that, production Huawei Mate 40will be challenging due to component supply issues. To note, the US ordered TSMC to stop supplying chips to Huawei. At least, so far Huawei’s plans seem to be going according to schedule.
Huawei has given its FreeBuds headphones a Pro model. This leaves little to be desired and convinces with some innovations.
Let us anticipate the conclusion: If you want the best in-ear headphones of 2020, you now have another top candidate in addition to the Apple AirPods Pro and the Sony WF-1000 XM3 with the Huawei FreeBuds Pro. After the first Noise-Canceling-In-Ears FreeBuds 3 and the especially attractively priced FreeBuds 3i, Huwei has succeeded in combining the strengths of both models and giving the new Huawei FreeBuds Pro long-desired functions.
The design of the in-ears is completely new. In addition to the well-known white and black, the headphones now use the new trend color “Silver Frost” and have an angular bridge as well as matching ear pieces and a round receiver head. The FreeBuds no longer look confusingly similar to the Apple headphones and at the same time they like the in-house design, which Huawei has implemented surprisingly.
Noble, but also clever design
The company didn’t make any mistakes when it came to processing. The noble headphones look chic, but are also easy to clean. Both the entire housing and the silicone attachments and even their inner surfaces are easily accessible and accordingly easy to clean. You only have to keep water away from the FreeBuds, the headphones do not have splash protection.
The color-matched charging case is also new and, in contrast to the round FreeBuds-3 and the elongated FreeBuds-3i case, now looks oval. With dimensions of 70 x 51 x 25 millimeters, it has grown, but still fits in a trouser pocket. The headphones themselves weigh around 5.5 grams, the charging case weighs around 60 grams. Here, too, the workmanship is great and the case is very easy to clean inside and out.
App checks how well the headphones fit
The Huawei FreeBuds Pro are simply coupled to the smartphone via Bluetooth. However, if you use the associated “AI Life” app from Huawei, you will only unleash the real strengths of FreeBuds. Already known from the previous models are the charge level indicator for the individual headphones and the case or the definition of the links that should be triggered with the touch controls. But here are a lot of innovations.
The FreeBuds Pro now have a wear detection and a fit test. When it is worn, it can be determined whether the headphones should continue to play music or content or whether playback should be paused if, for example, headphones are removed from the ear. During the fit test, the app plays test music, which it uses to determine whether the headphones sit well in the ear or whether a different size should be used for the (three included) silicone tips.
Volume is finally adjustable
The touch control of the FreeBuds is also new. In response to commands, they now give a quick, haptic feedback on the input through a kind of cracking vibration. Typing has also given way to swiping and pressure controls. If you briefly press the bridge of the headphones together, you start and end music and calls, pressing twice rejects calls and jumps to the next track and pressing three times jumps to the previous track.
If you keep the bars pressed together a little longer, you can either activate and deactivate the noise reduction or the voice assistant, depending on your taste. Probably the biggest and most ingenious innovation can be seen when you swipe up or down on the jetty: This means that you can finally control the volume on the headphones without having to take the smartphone out of your pocket. What the app is still missing, however, are customization functions for music playback.
ANC and sound as great strengths
The latter point of criticism does not apply, however, to the fact that the FreeBuds Pro sound really exceptionally good and loud. Even at the highest volume, there is hardly any loss of quality and the bass is strong but not intrusive. The active noise reduction (ANC), which is already good with the FreeBuds 3i, is even better with the Pro models. At the highest level, the FreeBuds Pro – provided they sit well in the ear – hardly let ambient noise through. The Huawei FreeBuds Pro are the calm in the noise.
There are also four new ANC modes. “Dynamic” constantly analyzes the ambient noise and adjusts the noise suppression accordingly, “Comfortable” offers a low level of noise suppression, “Balanced” one for noisy environments and “Ultra” silences almost everything around the wearer. In addition to the option of switching off ANC completely, there is also an “attention” mode. This lets ambient noises through and can also optionally amplify voices, which is useful for announcements in public transport or at the airport.
The battery has grown tremendously
There is a small drawback when making calls, which the Huawei FreeBuds Pro shares with almost all other in-ears. If the wind blows a bit more violently, there are minor noises when making calls, which is due to the microphones built into the bars. But you are still audible to the other person. On the other hand, the now extremely long battery life is pleasing: In the test, the headphones consistently lasted for over eight hours (without ANC), which is an extremely high value for in-ears.
The FreeBuds Pro can also be charged up to five times in the fully charged case before it has to be connected to the USB-C cable. That adds up to a theoretical running time of over 40 hours! Incidentally, the headphones in the case take 40 minutes to fully charge, the container one hour. Wireless charging is also possible with two watts. The headphones are priced at around 180 euros. Conclusion: With the Huawei FreeBuds Pro, the manufacturer has succeeded in headphones that are among the best of their kind and are contesting the throne of the previous industry emperors.
Huawei has given its flagship smartwatch series a new model. The Huawei Watch GT 2 Pro is chic and, above all, a design upgrade.
It should be chic and yet sporty, Huawei’s new smartwatch. It comes with the name Huawei Watch GT 2 Pro and is not only a design, but also a technical upgrade to the previous flagship model Watch GT 2. Instead of the steel jacket of the predecessor, the gray case is now made of even harder and scratch-resistant titanium. The sport version of the watch is back on a black fluoroelastomer strap, that of the classic version on gray leather.
The weight of 52 grams without the strap is above its predecessor – that was 41 grams for the larger model. Nevertheless, the watch is extremely comfortable to wear, also because Huawei no longer built the bracelet so rigidly in the case, which allows a more comfortable angle of the strap to the case when wearing. The following also applies: Those who prefer to exercise should do without the leather bracelet. It feels of high quality, but could suffer from constant sweat. The smartwatch is of course still waterproof and dustproof.
Sapphire crystal and new bezel
The OLED display – now made of sapphire glass – has remained the same size and sharp at 1.39 inches (454 x 454 pixels). While the bezel of the predecessor, with markings in seconds and two-step hour digits, was still quite full and placed at an angle to the watch glass, everything is different with the “Pro”. The bezel can now be found as a black circle under the flat display glass and only displays narrow lines in five-second increments and an arrow element in the center above.
The watch has grown a bit as a result. Since the new bezel has now been integrated into the display, the case now measures 47 (instead of just under 46) millimeters in width and has also become slightly higher and thicker. The smartwatch is nowhere near clunky, but looks more like a model for people with stronger arms. The touchscreen itself now not only feels smoother, it also acts better: Apps can now be selected and activated with pinpoint accuracy.
New clever functions
Some innovations are already apparent when setting up and trying out. For example, software updates can now be imported via the watch itself when the watch is connected to the “Health” app from Huawei. With predecessors, you first had to open the app and then select the updates. Charging is also easier: the watch can now simply be placed on the shell, which is now fully charged, and no longer has to be placed exactly on two charging pins.
In addition to the 32 megabyte RAM, there is also an internal memory of four gigabytes. Unfortunately, you are not allowed to install your own apps on this, because the watch continues to use the previously closed LiteOS operating system. But you can play a lot of music on the watch, which can then be heard directly on the watch – and in a thoroughly impressive quality with a high, yet distortion-free volume. Alternatively, you can stream the tracks to your smartphone or Bluetooth headphones via the watch.
Voice output and route function
There are also dozens of sports programs on the watch, some with well-thought-out programs for beginners, amateur athletes and professionals. In addition to running, cycling, swimming and the like, the watch has now also added new things to golf, skiing, snowboarding and cross-country skiing. The voice output is completely new: users can now (for the time being) either receive sports tips on running speed and the like in English or be warned by voice of heart rates and other vital signs as well as pressure changes outside the normal range.
An equally practical new function is a GPS route recording, for example when hiking in the wild or on mountain bike tours through the forest to find your way back to the starting point. As before, the watch records the respective sport with GPS – it also works without a connected smartphone. If you swipe left on the training screen, a recorded route is displayed. If you now use the “return” function, you will be directed to the starting point of the activity. Practical, not only for athletes, but also for walks in foreign cities.
To save the battery, an “intelligent” measurement can now also be activated for the heart rate. This simply means that the watch no longer measures the heart rate of the wearer constantly, but at short intervals – and thus does not burden the battery as much. The values are almost identical, there are no outliers. Oxygen saturation (SpO2) measurements are also on board, which also shows realistic values.
The battery performance is generally beyond any doubt: it lasts ten with average use, without regular exercise including GPS even three to four days longer. Charging takes just under two hours, and wireless charging via smartphones or charging pads is also possible. Then, however, the process takes a few minutes longer. Oh yes, you can also make calls again: you can answer calls directly on your wrist using the watch microphone and the connected smartphone. But not messages: WhatsApp, emails and the like are displayed as legible notes on the watch, but there is no quick response function.
Noble upgrade for the watch
The numerous functions known from its predecessor – the test of the Huawei Watch GT 2 can be read here – can be found again in the Pro model. The watch monitors sleep on request and gives tips against an unhealthy rhythm; it captures stress and shows how to recite it; and it reliably accompanies you in around 100 different sports, some of which also have training and improvement tips.
The Huawei Watch GT 2 Pro is a classy upgrade for the smartwatch series inside and out. In terms of design, we like the slightly larger display with sapphire crystal, the new titanium case, the more stylish bezel and the much easier charging option. In terms of technology, the Huawei Watch GT 2 Pro can score with the new route guidance, the training voice output and the new sports as well as the continued high battery life. Some users would only like one way to install apps from a store on the watch. Nevertheless: The Huawei Watch GT 2 is a stylish smartwatch with top functions that cuts a fine figure with both a suit and a sports jersey.
An even tougher year for Huawei. A fire quickly consume the Research and Development laboratory facilities in Dongguan, China. This building is part of the Company headquarters in front of Songshan Lake, with more than 25 thousand employees and an investment of 1.5 billion dollars.
In accordance with Global Times, the first reports point to highly flammable sound absorbing materials in this property still under construction. The compound was quickly evacuated, and emergency units have operated quickly.
