The Huawei Mate 40 was sold out in China in just under 1 minute

Despite the announcement some time ago, the Huawei Mate 40 only recently became available for pre-order. Since then, the device went on sale and was sold out in less than a minute because the device went online.

According to a Sohu According to reports, pre-sales for the base Huawei Mate 40 officially started on December 16, 2020 around 10:08 a.m. But within a minute the site was “sold out” due to the number of potential buyers and overwhelming demand. In other words, the premium flagship is already sold out before its actual December 21st release date. Apparently, many even believed the device was one of the last to feature the company’s own Kirin chipset, which led to a surge in demand.

For those who don’t know, Huawei lost its primary chip supplier TSMC due to US sanctions. However, the company had time to complete its existing orders from the world’s largest contract chip maker, which allowed it to stock up on the Kirin 9000 series chips. The Huawei Mate 40 series may be the last to hit the market with their self-designed chips. So, at least in his home country China, the device is already successful.


The company will also release the device on December 21st, so we may see similar demand with the official sale coming in. Remember, this is still a flagship. So it’s impressive to see such a high-end model sell out in just under a minute, especially when prices are 4,999 yuan and 5,499 yuan (roughly $ 763 to $ 839). Unfortunately, we don’t know how many units were for sale.
