The effect of these sanctions directly reflects on Huawei’s smartphone business as it faces difficulties due to the shortage of required components to build new models.
The blockade also prohibits Huawei to produce new chipsets through chipmakers such as TSMC, because the chip manufacturer also uses U.S.-made technologies to print the chipsets.
But, a fresh piece of news suggests that Huawei is still conducting its ventures and continues to do research and development in the field of chip designing.
New Kirin Processor Trademark:
A report coming from Chinese media reveals that Huawei has recently applied for the registration of the “Kirin Processor” trademark. The application date for the trademark is April 22, 2021.
According to the information, the international classification draws under 9 scientific instruments and the current status application for registrations.
It reflects that Huawei is still trying to pull something new from the Chip division, HiSilicon, and making moves to develop new chip technologies to come back in the future without relying on some other firms. Also, no one can deny or ignore the chip design expertise of HiSilicon.
Last month, during the latest Huawei analyst Summit, Eric Xu, Huawei’s Rotating Chairman, announced that Huawei’s chip designing department, HiSilicon, is not a profitable company. Therefore, it has no requirement of profit.
Currently, the main aim is to research, develop and prepare for the future and raise the HiSilicon team to move forward as long as the company could afford it.
Huawei working on a new 3nm processor design:
There’s more, because not stopping here because there’s more explosive news that has a surface on the report, which suggests that Huawei is developing the next generation of smartphone chipset, named Kirin 9010 (tentatively).
However, it’s not expected whether Huawei will adopt this name but it could be a reality because the company could skip, Kirin 9010 since it cannot print a new chipset so the skip would lead us to Kirin 9020 directly.
As per the information, this new processor in the making is expected to be built using 3nm (nanometer) processor technology, and the design is expected to be completed this year.
If this news is true, then it’s is one of the biggest moves that Huawei is playing in the background and it’s also a wise one. However, there’s no official confirmation available on this matter at the moment.
Still, Huawei cannot print new chip design through a third-party chip manufacturer, but in the current scenarios, even TSMC’s 3nm process technology is not so mature.
Reports reveal that this process will get a more sturdy form in 2022, and customers for this chip-making process will be able to get their orders mass-produced in the same year.
In the current scenarios, Huawei cannot build chips via TSMC but the Chinese tech giant makes the first step by design such as Kirin 9010 processor, and wait to get its slot fixed to print it.
Talking about processors, Huawei is using Kirin 9000 chipset in its flagship devices, which is by far the most powerful chip that’s ever created by the company.
It’s processed with TSMC’s 5nm process and it is the last processor that was launched last year alongside the Huawei Mate 40 series, then used on Mate X2 foldable phone, and next, it’s likely to come in the upcoming Huawei P50 series.
In terms of specs, the Kirin 9000 has an Octa-core architecture including 1 x Cortex -A77@3.13 GHz, 3 x Cortex-A77@2.54 GHz, 4 x Cortex-A55@2.05 GHz. In terms of GPU, the Kirin 9000 uses 24-core Mali-G78 and the Kirin 9000E features a 22-core Mali-G78 GPU.
We’ll keep you posted regarding the development of this story.

Over 2 million consumers visited Huawei store on the return of Meng Wanzhou
On September 25, Huawei‘s Chief Financial Officer (CFO), Meng Wanzhou finally landed in China. However, there is a report that over 2 million consumers across the country jumped into Huawei’s Tmall store to buy Huawei products to support Huawei.
May consumers left a message to the consumer service at the Huawei store for Meng when placing an order: “Welcome Meng Wanzhoud home, Huawei, come on!” Thereafter, Huawei has been trending on the hot search tab.
Huawei Meng Wanzhou:
Huawei CFO landed in China since her arrest at Vancouver Airport in Canada. A Chinese statement media reported that Meng Wanzhou will have also to take pandemic prevention requirements and participate in a 14+7 day quarantine.
Huawei CFO lands China after 1028 days of detention in Canada
Huawei Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Meng Wanzhou has finally landed in China, carried on a Chinese government-chartered plane at an airport in Shenzhen after 1028 of detention in Canada. A Chinese ambassador and Huawei staff welcome the CFO back to her homeland.
This isn’t a simple welcome, it was made heroic by the Airport’s tower management and announced on the radio a message for Ms. Meng:
“The motherland will always be your strongest support. Ms. Meng Wanzhou welcomes you back!”
This is the first time when Huawei CFO landed in China since her arrest at Vancouver Airport in Canada. A Chinese statement media reported that Meng Wanzhou will have also to take pandemic prevention requirements and participate in a 14+7 day quarantine.
China’s foreign ministry statement:
“Facts have already fully proved that this is an incident of political persecution against Chinese citizens, with the purpose of suppressing China’s high-tech enterprises. The accusation of Ms. Meng Wanzhou’s so-called “fraud” is purely fabricated. The actions of the United States and Canada are typical arbitrary detentions.” said China’s Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying.
The story continues as meng also delivered a returning keynote on her return after a long time to the people. She said the long wait in an overseas country is full of struggle and suffering. On the other hand, now the temperature of her hometown is making her unspeakable.
“Motherland i am back” said Meng
On December 1, 2028, Canadian police detained Huawei CFO while she was transiting at an airport in Vancouver, Canada. Subsequently, the Canadian Ministry of Justice held a press conference to announce the news of Meng Wanzhou’s arrest.
In March 2019, Canada approved Meng Wanzhou’s extradition order to the United States. Since then, Huawei has sued the Canadian government for the arrest of Meng Wanzhou.
On May 27, 2020, the Supreme Court of British Columbia ruled that the Meng Wanzhou case met the double criminality principle of extradition requirements and decided not to release.
On August 18, 2021, the trial of Meng Wanzhou’s extradition case in the British Columbia High Court was all concluded, and the judge did not immediately announce the verdict. The judge decided to hold a meeting on October 21 and agreed to announce the date of the verdict.
On September 25, 2021, after a deal with the U.S. regarding the latest settlement on the case, Meng Wanzhou left Canada on a chartered plane by the Chinese government and reached her homeland.
