In May this year, the United States further increased sanctions against Huawei, and this one directly hit Huawei's biggest weakness: chip manufacturing. Huawei only has the ability of chip design and development, and it also needs to rely on chip generation factories such as TSMC to manufacture chips. If we can't make chips, will Huawei mate 40 series and p50 series go on the market smoothly in the future?
According to the latest news, the development of the HuaweiP50 series has not been shelved because of the ban. According to Wang Yungang, general manager of HuaweiP series products, HuaweiP50 series has entered the stage of development, and now everything is going well and will not be stalled because of external factors.
It is understood that it will take at least 18 months to polish Huawei's flagship mobile phone from concept design to listing. Huawei will determine the latest technologies and solutions one year in advance and research centers around the world, and then enter the detailed development stage.
If we follow Huawei's 18 month design to go public, it means that Huawei's P50 series began to make this preparation last year.
Wang Yonggang revealed that at present, through Huawei's global research institutions to the Paris Institute of aesthetics, Japan's multimedia material structure for communication, Huawei's P50 series of preliminary preparations have been basically ready. He also stressed: very innovative, very competitive!
Unfortunately, Wang did not disclose any details of Huawei's P50 series. However, he said that the photography technology of Huawei's P50 series will go further.
HuaweiP9 began working with leica to launch a leica dual shot, P10、P20 launched AI smart photography, supported super night view and telephoto, P40 series of further breakthroughs, made the largest sensor on the phone, and 10x optical zoom technology. And HuaweiP50 series will further break the limits of smartphone photography.
According to Huawei's plan,Huawei's P50 series processor will adopt the upgraded version of Kirin 990, perhaps named Kirin 1020 processor. If all goes well, the processor should be officially released in September this year, starting with Huawei's mate 40 series.
Kirin 1020 processor adopts the most advanced 5nm chip manufacturing technology. This year, TSMC's 5nm capacity only serves apple and Huawei.
I only hope TSMC can ship Huawei smoothly in the future, otherwise only 120 days
