Huawei tweets it will debut its Mate 40 devices on October 22nd

Huawei has tweeted that it will reveal its Mate 40 series on October 22nd, likely the last of its phones to have Kirin chips— at least for the foreseeable future— due to the ongoing economic pressure from the US.

Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei’s consumer business unit, said at a conference August 7th that “this year may be the last generation of Huawei Kirin high-end chips.” The US has accused Huawei of building backdoors into network infrastructure, ostensibly to aid Chinese government spying efforts. Huawei has denied the Trump administration’s accusations of spying.

But the Trump administration placed Huawei and 114 of its affiliates on its Entity List in May 2019, which meant US firms were unable to sell technology to the company without explicit US government approval.

It also meant Google was barred from doing business with Huawei, preventing Huawei from obtaining an Android license, and keeping Google apps

The Capital Letter: Week of October 5

Call me crazy, but I’m not convinced that the latest round of talks on a new stimulus package are going as well as they might be.

Bloomberg:

President Donald Trump and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi questioned each other’s mental faculties, showcasing increasing partisan tensions as Election Day looms.

“The president is, shall we say, in an altered state right now, so I don’t know how to answer for his behavior.,” Pelosi said in an interview on Bloomberg Television Thursday.

The Democratic leader also called Trump’s changing positions this week on whether to let his administration conduct talks on fiscal stimulus “strange.” Trump pulled his team from negotiations Tuesday, prompting Pelosi to suggest to colleagues that day that Trump’s thinking might have been affected by the steroids he’s taken to battle his Covid-19, Bloomberg has reported.

“The disassociation from reality would be funny if it

YouTube and influencer business trends newsletter October 8

Hi, this is Amanda Perelli. Welcome back to Insider Influencers, our weekly rundown on the influencer and creator economy. Sign up for the newsletter here.

TikTok rival Triller has reported ever-increasing user numbers in the last year, but some former employees are wary of its figures.

My colleague Dan Whateley spoke with six former Triller employees who pointed in particular to an October 2019 press release by the company, which they said gave a monthly active user count that was far above what they were seeing on some internal metrics at the time. 

In the October 2019 release, Triller said it had grown 500% organically year over year to 13 million monthly active users. But a screenshot provided by a former employee from one of Triller’s app-analytics tools, Localytics, showed just 2 million monthly active iOS users and about 484,000 monthly active users on Android devices. It was taken a

Apple ‘Hi Speed’ iPhone Event Is October 13. Here’s What To Expect

Everything is different in 2020. Instead of one big uber-event in which Apple announces everything from Apple Watches to iPhones to new software, Apple decided to split it up this year.

And now Apple has announced the iPhone Apple event date: October 13.

The title for the event is “Hi Speed,” which probably can only mean one thing: 5G. Faster speed for iPhones, where networks will support it. There will be surprises at the event, even if small ones, but here’s what to expect besides the 5G support.

iPhone 12, of course

Apple will finally unveil the iPhone 12, which will likely come in a mini 5.4” size as well as full-size. Pockets of the world will rejoice as will those who just want a more portable device, and are not fans of the current trend to bigger
