Thank you for reading the news about Mate 40 could be last Huawei series to use own Kirin chips and now with the details
Aden - Yasmine El Tohamy - Leaks indicate upcoming smartphone has powerful camera system. It will, however, not come with Google apps and services
Huawei Consumer Business Group CEO Richard Yu had some good news and bad news: The good news is that its next flagship series, the Mate 40, will be coming in the fall.
The bad news? It could be the last to use Huawei's own high-end chipset - for now, at least.
Yu revealed this during a speech at China Information Technology Summit 2020, citing US President Donald Trump's order for a sweeping ban that prevents American companies from dealing with their Chinese counterparts.
Yu pointed out that after September 15 - the day when the ban takes effect - Huawei would no longer have the means to source components they need to build their Kirin chipsets.
"Huawei spent over a decade exploring chipsets, going from 'severely behind' to 'very behind' to 'slightly behind' to 'finally caught up' to 'leading' to now being banned," said Yu. "We made huge R&D investments and went through a difficult journey."
It is unclear how Huawei will move forward in sourcing, or building, chips.
Leaks indicate that the Mate 40 has a powerful camera system. It will, however, not come with Google apps and services.
New foldable this year
Meanwhile, Huawei is reportedly planning to launch its second-generation foldable smartphone, the Huawei Mate X2, by the end of the year, with an inward folding display similar to that of the Samsung Galaxy Fold, according to GizmoChina.
Ross Young, founder and CEO of Display Supply Chain Consultants, claimed that Huawei will source panels from Samsung Display and BOE.
