Alleged Huawei Mate 40E Pro with 66W Fast Charging Listed on 3C Certification Website

Might feature Kirin 990 5G SoC instead of Kirin 9000.


Huawei launched the Huawei Mate 40 series last year in October consisting of four devices: Huawei Mate 40, Mate 40 Pro, Mate 40 Pro+ and Mate 40 RS Edition. Earlier this year, the company announced Huawei Mate 40E with Kirin 990E SoC and a 90Hz curved screen display. Now, it looks like the company is gearing up to add yet another device in the series which is reportedly called the Huawei Mate 40E Pro.

The alleged Huawei Mate 40E Pro device has been spotted on the 3C certification site revealing the charging speed of the device. Also, another report from Gizmochina states that the Mate 40E Pro will likely launch with Kirin 990 5G SoC instead of Huawei’s Kirin 9000 chipset.

Huawei smartphone with NOH-AN50 model number has passed through 3C Certification. The model number belongs to Huawei’s Mater 40 series and it is assumed this is the upcoming Huawei Mate 40E Pro. The listing also confirms 5G network support. As for the charging speed, the Mate 40E Pro will sport 66W SuperCharge fast charging technology, just like the Huawei Mate 40 Pro and Mate 40 Pro+.

Furthermore, a report from Gizmochina suggests the Huawei Mate 40E Pro will be powered by Kirin 990 5G chipset. Previously, the company had unveiled Mate 40E 4G and Mate 40E 5G devices with Kirin 990 and Kirin 990E SoCs respectively. Now, the company is prepping to launch a Pro variant in the series with a 5G chipset. While it seems odd to launch a phone with yesteryear’s processor, the report suggests this could be because of the chipset shortage. Huawei might have less stock of the Kirin 9000 series flagship chips or even possibly run out of stock. As per the previous estimates, the company had 10 million units of Kirin 9000 chips before the US cut off the company’s main processor maker TSMC.
