Despite the four rounds of US Sanctions, Huawei is relatively evolving its products and promoting the company’s business. A recent report reveals, Huawei Mate 40E has more Chinese components than U.S.-made parts, which shows company potential even in severe situations.
According to the info of Nihon Keizai Shimbun, the Fomalhaut Techno Solutions disassembles the recently released Huawei Mate 40E to observed its internal components. The smartphone is found with more Chinese parts owing about 60% of the total cost of the model.
Furthermore, the Huawei Mate 40E’s models cost about 2373 Yuan (USD 367), which is nearly the same as the older models. But when it comes to the component ratio, China provides about 56.6% components in the whole device. In the previous Huawei Mate 30, the China-made modules barely account for 30%.
The report throws light on some points which explicates the reasons for this fact. Let’s look at them in brief-
- Screen: The Huawei Made 40E embraces the BOE screen and shifted from Samsung‘s OLED panel. It saves the company about 95US dollars, reducing the manufacturing value of the model.
- Processor: The company still relies on Kirin 990E SoC, which is a self-developed product of HiSilicon. Certainly, a processor is one of the main components in a smartphone on which a company needs to spent most.
- Supplementary Modules: Small components such as communication switches, power management chips, fingerprint sensors, and batteries, all are made in China. It plays an important role in smartphone composition.
We can say, Huawei knows the value of self-empowerment after what the US has done with the company has disturbed its supply chain. However, it still depends on many US-made components besides other countries.
Moving ahead, the US-made parts are rose to 5.2%, which is higher than 2.6% in the previous model. Furthermore, Japan accounts for 15.9% contribution in Mate 40E second after China. Yet, the company is using Samsung memory chips than Kioxia. The American and Japanese companies that make money from Huawei for Mate series includes the following-
- Chipsets: Qualcomm’s digital signal processors and Kovo (QRVO) 4G chips
- Electric Sensors: Murata Manufacturing, TDK, Taiyo Yuden, and Asahi Kasei manufactures the signal processing sensors
- complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor (CMOS) is provided by Sony

Next major global Huawei software update, but when?
At HDC 2021, Huawei announced new software technologies including the HarmonyOS 3.0 developer preview, Huawei Mobile Services Core (HMS Core) 6, and a number of new announcements in terms of cloud. There were also new data that has been revealed about ecosystem development that has been raised so far after HDC 2019.
The number of HarmonyOS software upgrades in China has hiked as the fastest-growing ever, which is very good for the company and the growth of this new mobile operating system. According to Huawei, HarmonyOS has achieved over 150 million upgrades as of October 22, 2021.
This is quite a big number of rejoicing and a matter of celebration.
But what about the global consumers, when they’ll receive the same treatment or should I say, the next major Huawei software update?
Currently, Huawei has released both – EMUI 12 and HarmonyOS 2 in front of global Huawei consumers at the launch conference. However, only EMUI 12 is being released with new smartphones among the global models.
Meanwhile, the global consumers want to know their own faith and they’re pretty much at the peak of their excitement as well as disappointment at the moment. Their comparison is quite right with the Chinese consumers, where they are being treated with a full banquet of features brought by HarmonyOS 2 software update.
As a global Huawei smartphone owner, I too feel that the software must be upgraded and people cannot run the same software over and over, while other smartphone makers are sending the newest addition to the system.
Next Major Huawei software update
Huawei usually sends or releases its plan to upgrade by the end of the year for the global Huawei smartphone holders. This update first tests on top models, followed by a staged rollout on older devices. This year, if released, the testing may start in Late November under beta testing and the stable rollout could initiate around late December 2021 or January 2022.
Meanwhile, Huawei has not announced any such timeline or whatsoever. However, the Chinese tech maker could release EMUI 12 for the global markets, rather than going in with HarmonyOS. We’ll keep you posted.
5.5G increase network capacity by 10 times: Huawei
Recently, Huawei wireless network product line general manager Gao Quanzhong participated at IOTE·2021 in Shenzhen and speakers about the 5.5G network, benefits, current status, and future possibilities.
According to the information, the International High-precision Positioning Technology and Application Innovation Summit Forum was conducted on 24th October. The industrial leaders and invited guests deliver several keynotes about the network technology, problems, and future scopes.
At the event, Manager Gao stated that the global 5GtoB industry development is moving towards its peak with a steady growth rate. Currently, more than 20 different industries have adopted the 5G network while over 10,000 applications have been developed.
Going with the speech, the Huawei manager noted that the iteration of the mobile communication network is developing with each decade. In addition, each network depends on its corresponding bandwidth spectrum to provide a strong network connection in the era.
Gao Quanzhong further explains, alongside the network speed, the positioning accuracy also increases by ten folds in each generation till 5G. In this line, the soon-to-frozen 3GPP R17 standard is expected to achieve 0.5-meter positioning accuracy.
To say so, we have reached so far from the 2G network generation that the communication network has been advanced to cross thousands of miles in a few minutes. Thanks to the 5G, we are hoping to reach more heights.
Furthermore, the 5.5G will bring a ten-fold increase in network capacity alongside the centimeter-level positioning accuracy and the terminal standby. The report shows the terminal standby time will improve by more than two years.
