Huawei has been cut-off from the rest of the world when it comes to procuring chipsets or other semiconductor components that users American technology. This is because of the sanctions imposed by the United States, which is also affecting the company’s vendors.
Because of the sanctions, it is impossible for the company to manufacture its flagship Kirin chipsets, and thus, the company had earlier confirmed that the upcoming Kirin 9000 SoC could be the last flagship chipset from Huawei.
For those who are unaware, the Kirin 9000 SoC will be powering the upcoming Huawei Mate 40 series flagship smartphones. Now, it has been revealed that the Chinese giant has about 10 million units of Kirin 9000 SoC, so there could be 10 million units of Mate 40 series phones available for purchase.
Another report coming from China claims that Huawei has about 8.8 million units of 5nm Kirin 9000 chipset available. The chipset could last for about a few months before the company runs out of it.
As for the Huawei Mate 40 series, the company is expected to launch three models — Mate 40, Mate 40 Pro, and Mate 40 Pro+, all of which will come with EMUI 11 based on the Android 10 operating system with support for some advanced features.
Huawei is expected to hold an online launch event for the Mate 40 series as well as the Kirin 9000 SoC next month. The China launch is expected to take place in mid-October while the devices could go official in the UK next year.
