It was reported that the upcoming P50 and Mate 50 flagships will be equipped with Kirin 9000 processor that provides improved performance as well as a new user experience as compared to its predecessor.
Last October, Huawei released its high-end, Mate 40 series with the latest hardware and software technology including the 5nm Kirin 9000 and Kirin 9000E processors, pre-installed EMUI 11, fast wired and wireless charging, and more.

HiSilicon Kirin 9000 uses TSMC’s 5nm build process and has 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.
However, the main difference between these two chipsets comes is only in GPU, the Kirin 9000 uses 24-core Mali-G78 while the Kirin 9000E features a 22-core Mali-G78 GPU.
Back in May 2019, the US government added Huawei to the entity-list and restricts the American companies to do business with Huawei. The US has applied this sanction to hurt the Chinese tech giant.
