Huawei has trademarked monikers like Mate V, Mate F and Mate Fold names in Peru.
These devices have been trademarked with National Institute for the Defense of Free Competition and the Protection of Intellectual Property (INDECOPI) in the country. Now that these names have been trademarked, it appears that the upcoming Huawei Mate series may sport these monikers in the near future.
These devices have been classified as number 9 on the database of INDECOPI that includes various kinds of electronics devices including smartphones, tablets, wearable devices and laptops. Huawei mainly uses Mate name for its flagship phone. The Huawei Mate Fold that has been registered with INDECOPI sounds like an appropriate name for a foldable device. The Mate V and Mate F could be the upcoming Mate series of smartphones form the company.
Huawei had debuted the Mate X, the first foldable phone of the company at the Mobile World Congress (2019). It is expected to release in the market in mid-2019. However, now that Huawei is considered a national security threat by the US government, various US companies like Google, Qualcomm and ARM have reportedly severed ties with it. While the trade ban has been delayed by 90 days, the future devices from Huawei may not feature components from the aforementioned companies.
Other Huawei Trademarks
Over the past few months, Huawei filed trademark for several devices including foldable devices like Huawei Mate F, Mate Flex, Mate Flexi and Mate Fold. As you can see, Mate F and Mate Fold have been trademarked again in Peru now. In other trademarks, Huawei MatePad was also trademarked.
If the trade ban is imposed on Huawei, forthcoming smartphones from the company won’t be featuring Google services. Huawei and ARM have collaborated on the manufacturing of Kirin chipset line. Huawei is expected to announce 5G enabled Kirin chipset from flagship devices in August. Huawei can still manufacture chipsets using existing chips. However, the company may not be able to work with ARM in the future. If the ban comes into action, even the arrival of newly trademarked devices like Huawei Mate V, F and Fold could be delayed.
