After launching the P40 range earlier this year, Huawei is currently working on the Huawei Mate 40. Having said that, the new smartphones are expected to arrive with a 5nm chipset and the launch seems to be scheduled for September. The Huawei Mate 40 is the first device to use this new processor which, if the rumors are confirmed, will be called Huawei Kirin 1020. However, there is nothing official about this.
Huawei Kirin 1020 chipset is more expensive than Apple A14
Apparently this processor will not be very cheap. Information published on Weibo, a Chinese social network very similar to Twitter, reveals that the cost is between that of the Apple A14 and the Apple ARM. However, it is closer to the A14. However, size is also between the size of the two giant apple chips. Let’s see what impact this will have on Mate 40.
Despite all the pressure that this manufacturer has felt from the United States, Huawei continues to give letters. In fact, it will be able to launch the first equipment with a 5nm chipset.
All processors that Huawei will need will be available in mid-September and there will be no delays related to the COVID-19 pandemic as previously thought. But there may be interesting information that may give rise to some doubts when buying this equipment. Especially those who do it outside of china.
As I said it seems certain that the Huawei Mate 40 will be powered by the Kirin 1020 chip which is based on a 5 nm process. However, it appears that Huawei ordered only 8 million units before the new restrictions were placed and now a dilemma arises. Considering that sales of the Mate 40 range are expected to exceed the 10 million mark, this means that this company needs more processors.
Since it cannot use TSMC, this manufacturer can use another chip.
Recently, information circulated on the Internet that Qualcomm would apply for a license from the Department of Industry and Security of the Commerce Department to supply chips to Huawei.
However, it was also said that this request at the outset would be granted. This solved the problem of processors for the P50 and Mate 50.
But it seems that MediaTek will supply the chipsets for Mate 40 equipment sold outside China after all.
We can expect an AMOLED screen on Mate 40 and Pro. They are also expected to arrive with a higher update of 90 or 120Hz.
Regarding the front camera, there is still no consistency between rumors. That said, some say it will have a hole to accommodate the sensor for selfies. Others say it will be a small monoblock. The only one who gains more strength on the panel speaks of a cascading monocle.
