Together with Mate 40 Pro, Huawei is working on the development of Kirin 1020, its next processor, manufactured by HiSilicon. According to a leaker on the Chinese social network Weibo, the production cost of Kirin 1020 will be higher than the Apple A 14.
Processor A 14 will be Apple’s next mobile CPU, which should equip the next iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max. Apple chips tend to be the most expensive, so Huawei has exceeded expectations in this component.
Huawei Kirin 1020 is a 5nm chip that will be introduced in September. This processor will certainly equip the upcoming Mate 40 Pro. As a rule, Huawei has a habit of debuting its new processors in the range Mate, considered the most powerful family of Device of the brand and with the best possible performance.
United States ban can hamper processors’ success
The United States does not they only banned Huawei from doing business with American companies but are also hurting parts supply. The US government recently limited TSMC, one of Huawei’s largest processor component suppliers.
The situation became such that Huawei started using processors from MediaTek, one of its competitors in the China. Still, the Mate line is too important for the brand, and the Mate 40 Pro will inevitably have to be equipped with a processor Kirin, in this case Kirin 1020.
