A few weeks ago, we made a post about the Huawei Mate 40 series being the last smartphones to be powered by the company’s in-house HiSilicon Kirin chipset. This development with regards to the processor powering the device will continue till the US lifts the ban on them.
The HiSilicon chip used in the Mate 40 series is manufactured on a 5nm node process. Aside from a powerful silicon chipset, this flagship device from Huawei will also be available with high-end features such as a possible 66W fast charging, which was hinted in a new EMUI 11 Promo Video.
At the Huawei Developer Conference 2020, the company unveiled its HarmonyOS 2.0 and EMUI 11 which has its build available for about ten (10) of the company’s devices. Huawei also released some promotional videos for the EMUI 11, with one of them showcasing its new charging animation with MAX 66W text.
The video however seems to have been brought down by the company since it wasn’t there when we searched for it. However, what we have is a screengrab from the video which was posted on Weibo by Digital Chat Station.
Aside from Digital Chat Station’s post, we saw in early June a 66W Huawei charger at China’s 3C certification bureau. We also think there is a possibility of the Mate 40-series having this charger in its box.
