The Thai regulator NBTC has approved an upcoming Huawei device called the NOH-NX9, revealing that it is in fact the Mate 40 Pro in the process. This model number has also popped up on the EEC and Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG) databases, suggesting that the premium phablet will indeed make its debut soon.

Huawei has hinted that it will launch at least 1 successor to the Mate 30 and 30 Pro soon. Now, there is more evidence that the latter will get an update. It comes in the form of a new NBTC certification for a device called the NOH-NX9 - also known as the Pro variant of the imminent 2020 premium series.

Further digging done by MySmartPrice reveals that the same model number has shown up in the hands of another national regulator, the EEC, as it has in those of the Bluetooth SIG. This wireless connectivity authority has indeed cleared the apparently confirmed Mate 40 Pro, alongside a huge list of other Huawei and Honor devices released in 2020 (for example, the ELS-XXXX model numbers conform to the P40 series).

The 40 Pro is also joined by 11 other devices with the new NOH prefix in this extensive listing. They may be variants of its series, vanilla and otherwise, some of which are likely to be 5G. Of course, it is hard to guess which of them may come with the rumored 5nm Kirin 9000 SoC, the availability of which could make some 2020 Mates into very limited editions indeed.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
