Huawei new processor Kirin chipsets

Huawei has been banned from chip manufacturing but some reports mention that the Chinese tech giant is secretly making U.S. free chipsets.

According to NikkeiAsia, Huawei trying to make new chipsets free from U.S. technologies with the help of existing domestic semiconductor partners.

Input reveals that Huawei has redesigned some of the key designs so that they could be printed with old or less advanced technologies. This production tech is easy to avail in China.

It’s also revealed that the company is not building its own production lines, instead, it’s operating via existing Chinese semiconductor companies. Also, the Chinese tech giant is providing assistance, procuring, and helping to operate for local semiconductor makers, said the source.

The move is directed to get chipset access without U.S. tech involvement.

Even if Huawei could get some chipset access back with recent changes in U.S. foreign policy, the company may also want to learn how to succeed in the chip manufacturing process.

On a further note, the report reveals that the company wants to start somehow, even if the chipset cannot compete in the market. However, a breakthrough is currently a bull’s eye mark.

To make a positive impact, Huawei is making investments in these companies to support their production and progress further in semiconductor development.

Initially, Huawei’s aim is to make chipsets for telecom equipment as they don’t require advanced lithography/chipset-making technologies as compared to smartphones. Also, the volume of network gears and smartphone models varies from each other. Hence, a high quantity of processors is required for the phones.

The semiconductor companies backed by Huawei also include DRAM and other memory types for all devices and peripherals.

Why chipset is an issue for Huawei?

After the U.S. ban on Huawei in 2019, Huawei has been barred from getting chipsets from U.S. companies. After a further crackdown, the company has also been prohibited from printing new HiSilicon Kirin chip from Taiwan’s TSMC.

However, after the low-key transfer agreement between Huawei and Qualcomm, the Chinese tech maker has been purchasing 4G mobile processors.

Currently, Huawei has not confirmed any of the above-reported information but we’ll keep you posted.

Most of Deng Li's smartphones are from the Huawei ecosystem and his first Huawei phone was Ascend Mate 2 (4G). As a tech enthusiast, he keeps exploring new technologies and inspects them closely. Apart from the technology world, he takes care of his garden.

Huawei Projection

Huawei has recently published a new patent for stereoscopic projection technology that could be cost-effective and it’s a good thing for both seller and the customer.

Information shared by the Chinese patent office, the latest Huawei patent has application number CN202211090428 and it was filed on July 27, 2022, while it was published on January 20, 2023. The patent categories show “Stereoscopic Projection System, Projection System, and Vehicle”.

Stereographic projection is a technique for displaying the angular properties of a plane-faced object on a single drawing or diagram. Directions, as well as planes, may be shown and any desired angle can be measured directly from the projection using a graphical technique.

In stereoscopic projection technology two images, seen from the perspective of the left and the right eye, are projected simultaneously. The frequency of projecting the images is 60 times per second for each eye and covered alternately by the shutter glasses.

Patent Details:

According to the details, this Huawei projection technology consists of a backlight assembly, a spatial light modulator, and a diffuser screen. The backlight assembly is used to output two light beams to the spatial light modulator at different angles. The spatial light modulator is used to modulate two light beams according to different image information to obtain two paths of imaging light.

The spatial light modulator is used to output two paths of imaging light to the diffusion screen at different angles. The diffusion screen is used to diffuse the two paths of imaging light and output the diffused two paths of imaging light at different angles. In this application, by sharing The same spatial light modulator can reduce the cost of the stereoscopic projection system.

looking at the patent diagram, Huawei’s “projection” patent is mainly aimed at stereoscopic projection systems. if utilized, it could be used to watch 3D projection, allowing consumers to watch 3D movies at home.

It’s good news, after a long time, Huawei has once again reclaimed growth in China’s smartphone market despite facing having no 5G in its new smartphones. According to the data compiled by Counterpoint research, Huawei has achieved 15% of year-over-year growth in the fourth quarter of 2022 as compared to the same quarter in 2021.

The company had 7 percent of the overall smartphone market share in Q4 2021, which recorded 9.5% in Q4 2022. This is a major difference. We could assume that the latest progress is made with the release of the Huawei Mate 50 series in October. Thereafter, Huawei customers supported the sales volume to a new milestone.

“Huawei recovered from its low base in 2021, increasing by 15% YoY in Q4. However, the brand is still unable to ship 5G-enabled devices, which is a major concern for its sales outlook.” wrote Counterpoint.

In 2023:

This year, Huawei is planning to launch a number of new smartphones and it’ll return to the dual flagship unveiling tradition. This means we would see the P series and Mate series launching in a single year.

The launches could further help Huawei to increase its growth in share among Chinese consumers to rank better in Q2 2023 smartphone market results.

Huawei growth smartphone Q4 2022 China

Q4 2022:

In Q4 2022, Apple gained captured 23.7% of the market, maintaining its leading position. But it registered a double-digit YoY decline like major Android OEMs.

All the major OEMs offered stronger promotions during the Singles’ Day online sales festival. They also used the sales promotion season to shed excess inventory. Smartphone sales surged MoM, but the rise didn’t sustain into December when COVID-19 started spreading fast.

Coming to overall sales, China’s smartphone sales declined 14% year over year in 2022, which is counted as the slowest smartphone growth in the last decade. It’s also the fifth year that China recorded continued to decline.

According to the image shared by a Weibo tipster, Huawei has listed the key difference between HarmonyOS, iOS, and Android inside its experience store to spread awareness about its operating system and remove confusion.

Below you can check the difference between iOS, Android, and Hongmeng systems listed:

iOS:

The iOS system is a closed-source system developed by Apple, which has relatively high security when downloading software, smooth operation, and simple and beautiful operation of the home screen and app ecosystem.

Disadvantages: The system settings cannot be changed according to the user, and the system compatibility is average.

Android:

Android is an operating system designed based on the Linux macro kernel. There are many devices equipped with Android and a wide range of choices. It has a rich ecosystem, high customization, and good compatibility.

Disadvantages: General security, and open source system brings disadvantages of uncontrollable software APP quality.

Harmony OS:

The HarmonyOS has modularized features, and the microkernel driver enables the system to be disassembled, which reduces the requirements for hardware specifications. Such low requirements allow it to be installed on small devices, such as earphones and smartwatches. HarmonyOS devices can also be connected to each other to achieve a seamless connection.

The Chinese tech maker also has a line of tips that would help you to get the most out of software updates:

  • Before upgrading the smartphone, it is recommended for you back up important data.
  • During the upgrade procedure, make sure that the device has enough battery levels.
  • Does the system need to be upgraded related to the current state of the phone.
  • Frequent upgrades are not recommended for smartphones that have been used for a long time and feature low specifications.
