For Huawei, they now have the ability to use the U.S. components for their smartphones. Before that, Ren Zhengfei also said that if they don’t buy these parts, what will U.S. companies do? We are sure the US government and those who think Huawei has been using backdoors in its software and collecting users’ data have asked these questions themselves as well. However, returning to Huawei’s new flagship, just recently, @evleaks shared some information concerning the dynamics of the Huawei P50 and Huawei Mate 40 series. From the action point of view, they all seem to have begun testing.
At the moment, we have also to admit that it’s unclear how many more new models from these lines will support 5G network.
Prior to this, a list of customers of TSMC’s 5nm process was exposed. It included the name of the customer’s company and the specific chip that TSMC will manufacture for them.
From the list data, the 5nm process mentioned by TSMC, including the 5nm process N5 and the enhanced version of N5+, covers the time period of 2020, 2021-2022.
In 2020, this year, TSMC only mass-produces 5nm chips for two companies, namely Apple and Huawei HiSilicon. The former has the A14 and A14X processors, and Huawei HiSilicon has the Kirin 1000 and network processors.
Previously, we have learned that some other news concerning the Huawei P50 and Huawei Mate 40. A famous analyst Guo Minghao previously said that Huawei will use freeform surface lens on the Mate 40 series models released in the second half of this year. The lens can improve the wide-angle deformation. At the same time, there is news that Huawei Mate 40 / Pro will also debut the Kirin 1020, which will be delivered on a large scale in August this year.
