Huawei ekes out third-quarter revenue growth as United States restrictions bite

Huawei somehow made enough Kirin 9000 chips to launch a new phone

Huawei, which recently became the worlds No. 1 smartphone maker, on Thursday unveiled its Mate 40 line of premium phones, a product release that comes at a crucial moment for the company as it runs out of room to maneuver around USA sanctions squeezing its ability to source components and software.

The comparison didn't stop there, and the Chinese giant went on to say that the octa-core CPU on the Kirin 9000 is 10 percent faster than the one on the 7nm Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 Plus, which will soon be succeeded by the company's first 5nm SoC, the Snapdragon 875.

The Huawei Mate 30E Pro is launched with a quad-rear camera module. The new phone will go on sale in early November from Euro 1,199.

The Mate40 Pro features a 6.5-inch FHD+ OLED with a resolution of 2376×1080. Sensors on the phone include accelerometer, ambient light sensor, barometer, compass/ magnetometer, gyroscope, proximity sensor, and in-display fingerprint sensor. The double front camera features in two "dot punches" at the top of the display, along with gesture sensors for touch-less control of the device.

Quibi offers entertainment and news in episodes of 10 minutes or less on mobile phones, initially promoted for on-the-go viewing. It's a disappointing end for the service that promised to revolutionize the way we consume content.

Coming to the imaging hardware, you get an optically stabilized 50MP (f/1.9) primary camera, sitting alongside a 20MP ultra-wide-angle lens and a 3D depth sensor as well. It comes with a 13 MP selfie camera.

Consumer Business Group Chief Executive Richard Yu earlier this year said Huawei would soon stop making high-end Kirin chips as U.S. restrictions on supplying the firm take effect. Huawei has developed its own AppGallery and applications created to replace the Google services. We know the Mate 40 will cost €899, the Mate 40 Pro will be €1,200 and the Pro+ variant will start from €1,400 but we still have little to none info when or where these devices will be launched. It is IP 68 certified for dust and water resistance. It is announced in Emerald Green, Black Space, and Comic Purple shades. That will be enough to support production till 2021 but will be far less than the usual demand for Huawei's previous Mate series of phones, according to Taiwan-based Isaiah Research. The Pro+ model with 12 GB is expected to cost Euro 1,399.

Mo Jia, who tracks the global smartphone sector at researcher Canalys, said the Mate 40 will likely sell well in China though total sales will suffer from supply-chain issues.
