Prior to this, Huawei’s Kirin chips were based on some components supplied by US companies. But as the new report proves, Huawei is going to design its own chips with no US equipment or components.
As RT News reports, some sources have claimed that Huawei is already thinking about this seriously. Moreover, that part of their manufacturing of chips will be ready by the end of this year. It means, Kirin chips won’t rely on other companies and suppliers be it a US company or another one. Thus, by the end of this year, the company will start competing with industry giants like Samsung, TSMC, Intel, and more.

Honestly, while many are surprised by this, we think it’s quite expected. We mean Huawei could develop its own operating system and mobile services with no help. And once there is an appropriate amount of apps, Harmony OS will begin its way.
As you know, the US government has introduced certain sanctions that restricted any US company to cooperate with Huawei. The Huawei Kirin chips that have been getting the process nodes from TSMC have had to stop cooperation. But as expected (at least, for us), the restrictions on Huawei only push it forward to build its own chip manufacturing process.
Unfortunately, there is no official confirmation. So you should take it with a pinch of salt for now. We mean though there is no official comment on this, the news is quite logical. We have been always thinking Huawei Kirin chips shouldn’t rely on any product in the future. But for some reason, Huawei didn’t come to this till it was banned by the US.
