Yu Chengdong of Huawei: Mate 40 will be carried with Huawei’s own Kirin chip but the 9000 chip might be out of print

Huawei is struggling to break out of the encirclement of the new US ban this year that has affected its high-end kirin chips.

On August 7, Yu Chengdong, CEO of Huawei’s consumer business, said at the China Information technology 100 Summit in 2020 that a new generation of flagship Mate 40 will be released this fall and will be carried with Huawei’s own Kirin chip.

However, Yu admitted: “Due to the second round of sanctions, the production of the chip will be closed after September 15th, which may be the last generation of Kirin’s high-end chip, in another word, out of print. Now, the domestic semiconductor technology has not caught up to manage to continue.
