Huawei has delayed the launching of Mate X to November to be optimized with an upcoming Kirin processor 990 and this upgrade is now confirmed in a new report.
Yanmin Wang, president of CEE, Nordic and Canadian Regions of Huawei’s Consumer Business Group, confirmed to TechRadar that the company’s Kirin 990 chip would be coming in the next foldable, the Huawei Mate X.
Back in February, Huawei unveiled Mate X at MWC 2019 powered by Kirin 980 processor and later delayed its launching due to further optimization, which also includes a new processor.
Although, this processor will first be seen on Huawei Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro flagships followed by Mate X in November and then Honor devices including V30/View 30 and Magic 3.
Since Mate X is a 5G device and we’ll see whether Huawei brings a new 5G embedded Kirin 990 processor or it’ll use processor and modem separately.
Moreover, Huawei has officially announced its participation for at IFA 2019 on September 6, where it’ll announce its latest flagship processor along with other products.
