your best options are aliexpress xda wont let me post external inks so just remove the spaces from links below
aliexpress . com/w/wholesale-huawei-mate-40-pro.html?spm=a2g0o.productlist.0.0.234c7a72rC5H7n&CatId=5090301
keep in mind prices will be higher than in local Chinese market but alot cheaper than trading shenzen giztop and other reseller sites
if you cheaper price buy it here jd.com or tmall.com
search . jd. com/Search?keyword=mate%2040%20pro&enc=utf-8
most of the cheaper listing are sold out right now but you can find some higher prices ones keep in mind on these sites you will need a shipping agent incase you do not have one just make an account ytaopal .com/ and paste the link you want to buy in your dashboard they will buy it and ship it to you I have used them before not for mobile phone but for other things do ask them about mobile phone shipping before placing the order sometimes battery goods cannot be sent from certain shipping companies if you do not want to do all this just buy it on aliexpress instead.
I would say go for mate 40 pro plus model as this time difference isnt just a 10x camera but alot more
1 . Extra 10x camera
2. SFS 1.0 ( 2 fold faster than ufs 3.1)* see the explanation below
3. 12 gb ram standard on both 256 gb and 512 gb
4. OIS built in 50MP camera not that mate 40 pro has the same camera but without OIS
6. 3D Depth Sensing Camera instead of laser sensor which you get on mate 40 pro
all in all mate 40 pro plus is a different phone than mate 40 pro
price difference isnt much on JD.com mate 40 pro 256gb is 6999 yaun ( 1060$) and mate 40 pro plus 256gb is 8999 yaun ( 1360$) so for 300$ more you get so much more that matters alot.
Based on the results of measuring the homegrown Huawei SFS 1.0 flash module, it was possible to establish that it provides almost a twofold increase in the speed of operation in comparison with the UFS 3.1 flash memory.
According to reports, the sequential write speed was 1280 MB/s, and random 548 MB/s.
In comparison, these figures for UFS 3.1 are 700 MB/s, and 200-300 MB/s, respectively, GizChina reported.

No, all of the Mate40 pro, Mate40 Pro+ and Mate40 Pro RS have SFS1.0
