TD Tech to relaunch the Huawei Mate 40 Pro to circumvent US sanctions

Huawei is turning to TD Tech again, having re-released the Nova 8 Pro this month. Now, Huawei has re-branded the Mate 40 Pro, a device that the company launched under its name in October 2020. TD Tech is yet to announce the Mate 40 Pro, but it has turned up on the TENAA.

Additionally, a hands-on photo of the device is circulating on Weibo. For context, Huawei and Nokia founded TD Tech in 2005. Principally, the joint venture has operated in China, with it focusing on network infrastructure. However, Huawei's ongoing sanctions with the US have prevented it from releasing smartphones with 5G modems. Seemingly, TD Tech serves as a loophole for Huawei to clear old stock, at least for now.

Correspondingly, the TD Tech Mate 40 Pro lacks any Huawei branding. TD Tech has also replaced Leica references with 'Ultra Vision Camera'; there is no evidence to suggest that the company has made any hardware changes.

Hence, the re-released Mate 40 Pro should feature a Kirin 9000 SoC, a 6.76-inch and 90 Hz display, and a 4,400 mAh battery. Reportedly, the TD Tech Mate 40 Pro runs a re-named version of EMUI too, although it is unclear if the device supports Google Mobile Services (GMS).
