On August 7, at a conference in China, Huawei’s Consumer Business Group CEO, Richard Yu AKA Yu Chengdong, announced that Huawei’s upcoming flagship smartphone will be packed with the most powerful yet last Kirin flagship processor.
Yu said, Huawei Mate 40 series will be powered by the flagship Kirin 9000 chips and it’ll be the last generation of high-end Kirin chips from HiSilicon, Huawei’s semiconductor subsidiary.
Richard mentioned that this new flagship chipset series will be the most powerful Kirin chipset ever, featuring new 5G technologies, AI processing capabilities, powerful Neural Processing Unit (NPU) and GPU performances.
The name of the processor was previously speculated as Kirin 1000 but it’s now confirmed as Kirin 9000 by the CEO. However, we’ll wait for IFA 2020, where Huawei will officially announce this processor in early September.
Yu also said that the discontinuation of high-end Kirin chipset manufacturing will begin after September 15, 2020. This is due to the new sanctions imposed by the U.S. government. Meanwhile, orders placed before September 15 at TSMC, will be delivered to Huawei.
Huawei is prohibited from purchasing new technologies from U.S. companies to the sanctions, and a few months ago, U.S. also banned Taiwan’s TSMC from supplying to Huawei, which manufactures chips for HiSilicon.
The official also explained Huawei’s current issues in the semiconductor manufacturing field and decided to invest more in the research and development for new technology breakthroughs.
A recent report suggests, that Huawei likely to visit third-party chip sellers including MediaTek and Qualcomm. Also, the Huawei P50 series could be the first flagship to come equipped with third party chipset but it’s not yet confirmed at the moment.
