Huawei’s last Kirin processor is preparing to launch alongside Huawei Mate 40 series in October. This new processor will reportedly be called Kirin 9000 and built with TSMC’s 5nm chip-making process node.
According to the tipster DigitalChatStation, Huawei has started working on a new “true flagship” tablet that will be powered by the upcoming Kirin 9000 processor. However, the tipster didn’t reveal any other specifications or details of this new Huawei tablet.
Previous reports suggest that Huawei has a limited stock of the Kirin 9000 chipset due to the U.S. chip restrictions posted recently and a big share of these chips will be used for Huawei Mate 40 series smartphones.
Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei Consumer Business Group said the Kirin 9000 will be the most powerful Kirin chipset ever, featuring new 5G technologies, AI processing, powerful Neural Processing Unit (NPU), and GPU performances.
The current-gen flagship tablet, Huawei MatePad Pro is the first to equip with 5G capabilities provided by Kirin 990 5G chipset and offers various new features. With a new processor, Huawei can offer even more processing power and compatibility to the user.
