The Huawei Mate 40 flagship phone series is the company’s next big launch. With the premiere of high-end phones in the Mate line, a new Kirin chipset from HiSilicon, Huawei’s processor division, is usually introduced. Now, according to a new report, it has been revealed that the international market could receive a line of Huawei Mate 40 phones without Kirin processors.
The leak comes from the informant Teme (@ RODENT950), known above all for the leaks related to the new Huawei and Honor devices. In his Twitter post, he noted that the Mate 40 series powered by the new Kirin 1000 chip may be exclusive to China. He goes on to say that Huawei will follow Samsung’s strategy of using two different chips in its phones. The motivation for this would be none other than the recent ban that prevents many producers from manufacturing new HiSilicon SoCs.
After knowing this, the most important point to discuss is what would be the replacement for your Kirin. An answer below the filter tweet says the processor for other markets is likely to be one from MediaTek. While it did not specify what specific model it could be on, the recently introduced Dimensional 1000+ appears to be the best bet at the moment. This unless the Taiwanese semiconductor company announces a more powerful chip before the launch of the Mate 40 series.
Teme also revealed that Huawei does not even have enough stock of Kirin processors for the Mate 40 series. The Chinese giant has only about 8 million units, which is less than the average number (10 million units) of Huawei Mate phones sold. annually. However, in the global Mate 40 market with the Kirin 1020 SoC, we are unlikely to see it. Most likely, it will be sold exclusively in China. A version based on an alternative single-chip system will “reach” us.
