2. ultrawide fov on P30 and even more so on P40 is utterly narrow and thus ridiculous.
so, good as they may be, they are still plagued by these "does not compute" design decisions.
Huawei, inspite of ban is still carrying on releasing smartphones more than ever just to prove ban makes no difference to them.

How many times have you changed the SoC in your smartphone? How many times have you bought a smartphone planning in advance your next purchase? Most (if not all) consumers have no idea what future is hiding for the OEM.

He has a point on those specs. Major possibilities for that camera (except for 12K; that's just silly). I'm hoping it has more 2K OLED panel with 120Hz refresh rate along with 5,000 mAH battery (and it will more than likely have 40W reverse wireless charging as the P40 Pro+ proved possible) but otherwise, he ain't far off. I can imagine there would be an 8GB RAM/256GB version for about $150 less and the Porsche Design would have 16GB RAM/1TB ROM to wrap things up.
Still holding out for a Mate 40X. IDK why GSMArena is quick to think it would be replaced with a useless 'Pro+'.
I have been covering Huawei as a journalist for over a decade. What I find fascinating is that the accusations all originate out of Washington DC. It seems lobbying by US networking equipment makers over the last decade started to pay off once trump took office. Bashing China plays well for Trumps' attention deflection tactics. The US is falling behind China in the global tech stakes and in trade, Their response to date has been pitiful and it isnt sustainable. Huawei play a long game and the US thinks financial year....
Anonymous, 22 Aug 2020Now I get why you always complain about Samsung and Apple.
You a Huawei fanboy makes senseI own a Note 8 and just ordered an S10+ in ceramic white, so your argument doesn't really hold water hehe.
I hope it will have 20x zoom

Huawei is not as dumb as Samsung. They will not ask sony to make a 108MP sensor.

All Chinese must switch to RISC-V based Ali baba XT like homegrown processors based on Micro kernel like Harmony OS, because NVIDIA is most likely to buy ARM within a few months.
Already Chinese have a 14nm SMIC and a working model of a 7nm DUV Fab ready for 2021.
But Honestly I am waiting for a Harmony OS phone with Dimensity Chip,it will be amazing 😮😮😮.
Mate 40 won't be the last Huawei flagship nor Kirin 1000 the last Kirin SoC. Huawei might not be able to fab Kirin for years but design will continue. ARM-based processor is one of China's three key future processor design and Huawei and China isn't going to give up on the experience gained. Look at how far Kirin have come; 990 is the fastest SoC with an integrated 5G modem and Kirin 1000 the 1st 5nm SoC with an integrated 5G modem.
China is going to work on ways to replacing all US patent and component on ASML's fab machinery so it can work with European and Asian partners without them being constrained by Washington

I really like huawei .. lots of innovation defo not copycats.. and shame on those who stifle their growth in the name of shameless accusations of spying.. Google and FB 100% eavesdrops on your privacy. ZTE coming with first phone with inscreen front camera.. give technology the credit it deserves. Fair play please. Imagine trump and Pompeo at the Olympics. About time the UN puts them in their place.
