Will Huawei shift to Qualcomm and MediaTek for upcoming P Series?

With more restrictions imposed by US on Huawei’s chip manufacture – HiSilicon from dealing with American tech companies. This has made Huawei shift to Qualcomm and MediaTek for its upcoming P Series smartphones. 

US has imposed certain restrictions that prevent Hisilicon (Huawei’s Chipset Manufacturer) dealing with technology companies of America. The news was first confirmed by the Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) in May 2020 stating that it bad stopped taking new orders from Huawei.

Now although Huawei has it’s own firm to produce flagship processors, it is entirely dependent on HiSilicon for Chipsets. Now with the US Ban, Huawei will not be able to get chipsets from HiSilicon and thus will have to ditch Kirin.

Huawei’s most awaited P series flagship device of 2021 P50 will be launching the coming year. And for this, Huawei is now shifting to other Chipset Manufacturers. Mostly – Qualcomm and MediaTek for upcoming P Series.

Qualcomm Snapdragon 875 for P50?

Rumor has it that Qualcomm has applied for a license to the US Government so as to supply Qualcomm Snapdragon 875 Chipsets for Huawei. If US Government’s Bureau of Industry and Security accepts this demand. we will see Huawei Qualcomm patent for Huawei’s Upcoming smartphones.

What about Mate 40 Series?

That was for the next year flagship P50 series. but what about the yet to launch Mate 40 Series of Huawei? The question still remains. Well that has somewhat already been taken care of. Since Huawei had, pre-US ban, ordered over 8 Million Chipsets from TMSC. So that shouldn’t be a hindrance for P40 Mate series.

So all in all, the TMSC chipset -Kirin 1020 will be exclusive to China and the test of the world will have to adjust with MediaTek chipset. Not much about the Mate 40 series is known yet. But we do know that. it will have a quad-camera system with a 108MP main camera.
