The Huawei Mate40 series will be announced towards the end of the month.

The Chinese company confirmed in a tweet the Mate40 series will be unveiled on Oct 22 and that "unprecedented power is coming."

While it remains to be seen how the Mate40 series will "leap further ahead", they are reportedly the last phones to be powered by Kirin processors.

The US Department of Commerce has amended an export rule which bans chipmakers that use US software and technology from selling products to Huawei.

Leaked renders of the Mate40 series show a similar design to the Mate30 series with a few exceptions such as dual punch-hole cameras on the front, and a bigger rear camera bump which is likely to house "free-form" lenses.
