Huawei's Kirin chipset is depleted

Chinese Huawei is trying to solve the huge stock issue as the US (kirin) chip manufacturing ban actually started on September 15th.

Huawei is preparing to launch its next line of flagship smartphones, the Mate 40 series, in the third quarter of 2020.

The Chinese company is expected to prematurely release the Kirin 9000 chip on September 5th at IFA Berlin.

According to the report, (Richard Yu), CEO of Consumer Business Group, said at the 2020 China Information Technology Summit: The company will no longer be able to produce Kirin chips after September 15 and will then stop producing mainstream processors.

Chinese companies shipped 105 million mobile phones in the first half of the year.

Yu added that if Samsung is not in the US, it will easily overtake Samsung and its sales will reach more than 255.8 billion yuan in the first half of 2020.

Additionally, additional sanctions against TSMC made things more difficult and it now appears that the Kirin chips are not available as TSMC must immediately suspend the manufacturing schedule.

The Chinese giant plans to develop basic research and precision manufacturing in physical materials science, and the company will continue to invest in basic materials and technologies for innovative new processes.

Yu said: Huawei will launch a batch of devices (Mate 40) in September as planned and will continue to use chips (Kirin), but Chinese chip makers (such as SMIC) are currently unable to bridge this gap.

These statements are in line with the leak, which indicates that the company's next flagship processor is the Kirin 9000, which is expected to be released at the IFA conference in Berlin on September 5th.

Previous reports have revealed that despite the ban, Huawei still has an inventory of Kirin Mate 40 series processors as the company's stock can meet the demand for 15 million Mate 40 series.

The Kirin 9000 processor is manufactured with 5nm technology by the Taiwanese company (TSMC). It should bring a major upgrade for high-performance cores and use of the latest Cortex-A78 (ARM) core. This is a major update (Cortex-A76 is older than Kirin 990 5G.

Performance will increase by 10% to 15%, the processor is expected to have 171.3 million transistors per millimeter, and in terms of graphics processing, the Arm Mali-G76 update is also expected.
