Little by little, 2020 is coming to an end. However, we are waiting to see some interesting releases, including the new Huawei Mate 40 series. Just a few days ago we told you all the news about EMUI 11, which these devices will carry in their guts. Now, we get some discouraging news, as the Huawei Mate 40 may not arrive in Europe until next year.
Huawei continues to work to separate paths with Google, and that both its company and users depend less and less on the search giant’s apps. The task is not easy and the firm has been vetoed by the United States since the company was added to the Trump administration’s blacklist early last year.
On sale next year?
However, we are impatient to know all the news of the new Huawei Mate 40, which has been timidly leaking over the weeks. Now, the famous leaker of news on the industry, Evan Blass, has indicated that the Mate 40 series will not be available until 2021. This statement refers to global models, that is, precisely those that Huawei should put in the hands of European users.
Sounds like, if you’re waiting on the Huawei Mate40 series, you won’t be able to get your hands on one until next year…

This statement joins previous reports, which revealed that the Mate 40 will go on sale first in China, during the month of October. Recall that the Mate 30 series was Huawei’s first major launch without Google Services. Due to the veto of the United States, Huawei was caught on the wrong foot and its flagship paid the consequences of lower sales outside China, in addition to a more modest promotion, far from what Huawei had us used to.
Huawei and its added problems
In addition to the delays that all production chains have suffered as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, in the case of Huawei, the handicap of the possible shortage of Kirin chips could also be added, also as a consequence of the aforementioned veto. At the moment there is no official confirmation that supports this possible delay in the global arrival of the Mate 40, so we will remain vigilant. As you might expect, many improvements are expected at the hardware level, but for the first time, it is rumored that Huawei could launch up to three different models of the Mate 40 series, with the Mate 40, 40 Pro and 40 Pro +. They are expected to debut the latest generation of Kirin processors, which have yet to be announced.
