William Tian, head of Huawei’s consumer business in Germany, told a briefing that his company commanded a market share in Germany of 13 percent in the current year to date, despite US trade restrictions that have affected its chip supplies.
He said that Huwaei's new Mate 40 Pro premium device would ship from next week.
Tear downs from Asia suggest that the new smartphone has a secret sauce which makes it a little different from the norm.
The Huawei Mate 40 Pro+ and Mate 40 RS Porsche have flash memory that bears the HiSilicon logo, which indicates that it was created by a division of Huawei. Not only that, but it is incredibly fast.
Based on the results of measuring the homegrown Huawei SFS 1.0 flash module, it was possible to establish that it provides almost a twofold increase in the speed of operation in comparison with the UFS 3.1 flash memory.
According to reports, the sequential write speed was 1280 MB/s, and random 548 MB/s.
In comparison, these figures for UFS 3.1 are 700 MB/s, and 200-300 MB/s, respectively.
