The upcoming Huawei Mate 40 series is expected to be the first set of phones to feature the yet-to-be-announced Kirin 9000 chipset. Up until now, we have thought there will be just one processor but a new leak says that there will be two versions of the Kirin 9000.
As revealed in a tweet by the leaker Teme (@RODENT950), the Kirin 9000 series will include two processors – the Kirin 9000 and the Kirin 9000E.
The Kirin 9000E appears to be the less-powerful version of the series as seen in the tweet above while the Kirin 9000 is the high-end version. However, since he isn’t sure, we will advise you to take it with a pinch of salt until more details surface.
