While Huawei has come under unprecedented pressure from the upgrade of the US ban, the latest news suggests that both the Mate 40 and the P50 series are progressing steadily, with the 5nm next-generation Kirin processor to be released as scheduled. “Although the U.S. imposed further sanctions on China in May, I guarantee that Huawei will release the Mate 40 series with the 5nm process Kirin processor as scheduled in October,” according to a blogger About 8 million Mate 40 phones are available in the fourth quarter. ”
Earlier foreign whistleblower RODENT950 has revealed that Huawei’s next-generation flagship chip is named Kirin 1000 ( some say Kirin 1020), built by TSMC 5nm process.
It is reported that the Kirin 1000 development code-named “Baltimore”, because the Kirin 990 5G is using the Cortex A76 architecture, so the Kirin 1000 may use the Cortex A77 or A78 architecture, CPU and GPU performance will be greatly improved.
As usual, Huawei’s new Kirin processors will be released in the fall, with the mate series being launched.
Based on Huawei’s existing product line layout, the Mate 40 series is expected to have Mate 40, Mate 40 Pro, Mate 40 RS Porsche design, etc. this time, and it is not clear whether there will be a Mate 40 Pro.
Recently, Wang Yonggang, general manager of Huawei’s P-series, revealed the progress of research and development of the P50 series. He said the P-Series would take at least 18 months of grinding from concept design to product launch, working with research and development centers around the world a year before identifying innovative technologies and solutions before moving on to the detailed development phase.
He said that each generation of P-Series products based on Huawei’s research and development and the industry partners’ cutting-edge capabilities to achieve a new breakthrough, next year’s P50 will certainly have more surprises.
As usual, Huawei’s P50 series will launch worldwide in March next year. On this basis, the technical solutions of the P50 series have been identified and are in the development phase. Like the Mate 40 series, the P50 series also features a 5nm Kirin processor, which is more focused on photography and aesthetic design.
