Huawei HiSilicon has its self-developed OLED driver chip in the trial production stage. The company will reportedly begin its mass production in the first half of next year with a production capacity of around 200,000 to 300,000 units per month.

The OLED chip will be mass-produced at 40nm in China and it will begin at the start of 2022. This mass production also confirms that the Chinese tech giant is currently performing trail production of the OLED driver ICs.

Huawei developing its own resources to reduce its dependence on the US

It was been found that there are no restrictions regarding the production of OLED driver ICs in the United States. While Huawei might have already decided not to deal with the US over anything now.

Also, some of the analysts believe that Huawei is taking over the OLED driver ICs to break the monopoly of overseas manufacturers. Further, the company wants to increase the localization of chips and ensure the security of the supply chain.

Not just Huawei, there are other Chinese companies too that are preparing to be independent and make their own OLED chips. This crucial step of self-developing the chips will break the companies dependence and will be a major advantage in production.

How driver chips are important for OLED displays?

With the growing technology, the demand for a good quality OLED display has increased over time. Many smartphones nowadays feature an OLED panel for an immersive viewing experience.

The OLED driver IC is an important part of these displays and is responsible for image quality which depends on its ability to control current. It also controls different scenarios such as interface type, pixel resolution, and other performance indicators.

Compared to the other kinds of displays such as AMOLED and LCD displays, the OLED panel provides smoother animation, takes a lower power consumption, and offers rich colors. This display is usually featured in the flagship devices and is relatively costlier than those other two.

Huawei’s competition for OLED driver chips

Huawei Hisilicon currently has the production capacity for 40nm chips, while other chip manufacturer like Samsung, TSMC, and UMC got 40nm and 28nm processes for making OLED driver ICs.

Moreover, the Chinese tech giant is not only facing chip shortage problems, but it also has to deal with the competition with the Chinese and overseas companies. However, it remains to be seen how the company delivers quality OLED driver chips and compete with the major chip manufacturers in the market.

Here’s why Huawei software updates rollout in batches

Huawei Batches updates

Have you ever thought about the fact that ‘Why you may get software updates later than others in your Huawei smartphone? However, with the arrival of HarmonyOS, Huawei has sped up the entire rollout procedure, yet Android-based EMUI is still applicable for the phased rollout process.

Before getting to the answer, let me be very clear that obtaining an update late does not indicate Huawei is treating older devices unfairly. Huawei does in fact launch software updates in batches, according to regions and model compatibility.

Notably, there are some considerable reasons that Huawei should focus on before dispatching any software updates for the devices. Also by the end of the article, you might definitely think to receive the updates late or last.

Below you can check some reasons why Huawei releases software updates in batches instead of rolling out in a bundle:

Bug-free experience

  • Huawei releases updates gradually, before it spreads and becomes widely used, a bug in an update can be reported to Huawei by the end user. Huawei made a wise decision in ensuring that you won’t receive faulty software.

Server Loads:

  • There are numerous devices available, and every individual is ready to update. A server crash could result from too many users upgrading at once, which could also delay or halt other services. Huawei allows some devices to upgrade before allowing another batch from release in order to prevent this.

Huawei Batches updates

Devices compatibility:

  • Since every device is unique, Huawei must develop an update specifically for your device in order to optimize it, ensure proper interface, and ensure smooth operation. It can prolong the period until getting the updates.

Huawei device carriers:

  • Before verifying the update on devices, your carrier might want to test it to ensure maximum use cases. The testing of the update by some carriers may take a long time, making this phase often the longest. Even if your device is unlocked, this scenario may still apply.

Regional Content:

  • Some regions may receive additional content from EMUI that they require to regulate laws or stand out. If you live in such regions, there may be an additional delay because Huawei often needs to make a new copy for that region. Long wait times may be the outcome of this.

Alongside, there is the International Mobile Equipment Identity of your device, if your IMEI is in the batch, then you get the update, if you aren’t in the batch, then you need to wait for the next batch. This also might be the reason you get the update right when it’s out and other times it takes a week or more than that.

Update tier:

All of the phones come with different update cyles and Huawei phones receive these rollouts in two timelines:

  1. Monthly
  2. Quarterly

Flagship devices get more updates than budget devices as they are eligible to get better software treatment than usual.
