A Chinese tipster had also revealed the entry from the Compulsory Certification of China database on Weibo in late September. The data said that the devices will feature charging speeds of up to 66 W.

The Mate 40 series will see the debut of the Kirin 9000 chipset. However, this will also be the last smartphone from Huawei in the immediate time frame to feature a Kirin chipset due to the ban the company is facing. In July this year, the United Kingdom banned the Chinese company from 5G after the United States, Australia, and other countries.
