2023 is on the horizon and Huawei is preparing to return to the dual flaghip launch tradition. Speaking of which, there’s new information that reveals the Huawei P60 and Mate 60 models will go full-on Qualcomm mode.
The tipster further said that the Huawei P60 and Mate 60 series will resume the dual-flagship tradition.
Yet we can assume that Huawei may not be using Kirin next year on the flagship smartphone. However, we don’t have an exact amount of information on what Huawei is actually planning for these two flagships.
Since the launch of the Huawei P50 series, the company increased the use of Snapdragon chipsets. This step is taken due to the reduced Kirin chip stock.
This year, Huawei unveiled new smartphones and tablets featuring Qualcomm processors in all categories. The flaghip, Huawei Mate 50 is the first to use Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 4G mobile processor.
Going forward, Huawei is likely to stick with Qualcomm, as there are still some issues in Huawei’s supply chain unit.
Not Gen 2 in P60?
There are a number of inputs on the P60 series and the last one suggested that the phone could be powered by Snapdragon 8+ Gen 2. This makes sense and since the chipset is already launched, it should easily move on to that platform. Instead of choosing the first-generation processor.
Also, it’s expected that the Huawei P60 series could launch near March-April 2023. Yet, we can’t determine the unveiling at the moment.
Other than the Huawei P60 series, consumers were expecting Kirin to return with Mate 60 series. But a Huawei report confirmed that the chipset won’t be returning next year. Yet, we have got a lot to explore and there’s an entire year waiting for us ahead.
