Huawei Mate 60 Pro achieves 5G speeds with old chip tech

Huawei's latest flagship smartphone — the Mate 60 Pro — can achieve 5G speeds despite using a chip made using an older 7nm manufacturing process.

The Mate 60 Pro's launch last week created excitement in China's tech industry due to rumours that Huawei would launch a new 5G-capable Kirin chipset.
 
US has questions about Huawei's big chip breakthrough

The US is working to establish the full details of Huawei Technologies Co.’s advances in chip technology, news of which has stoked Chinese nationalism and ignited speculation about the effectiveness of Washington’s curbs on the country’s vast technology sector.

US National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan said on Tuesday the government wanted to know the precise composition of the processor in Huawei’s Mate 60 Pro, which a teardown conducted for Bloomberg News revealed was just a few years behind the current generation and made by US-blacklisted Semiconductor Manufacturing International Corp.

Huawei and SMIC are both subject to US sanctions preventing them from accessing the most advanced chipmaking and equipment, on fears of potentially aiding China’s military.
The US government sure are paranoid. Finding it harder and harder to compete fairly so they spread FUD just to stay ahead of the competition.
:confused:
 
They used stockpiles they had from 2020, come on guys, it's a kirin 9000s, it's not like it's a snapdragon gen 2 or something. This is the same as when they said look we made our own chip and it turned out to be a silk screened I3.
 
Those mense in Boksburg are slim China's

Impressive.

It's being made in China, where the US has no jurisdiction.
 
Challenge (impossible)



"China is not completely bad"

Behold, my shilling.
Yeah I mean sure same as South Africa isn't completely bad. Yet one doesn't announce it's made a new chip in house that's more then likely old stock.

What will the excuse be if they release a new chip next year.

Old stock again?

Knowing them it'll more then likely be, I mean they've already done it with a the Intel I3 rebadged and now doing it with the kirin 9000s which is 2mm larger then the 2021 Kirin 9000.
So next year are we going to get an i5 from 2020 rebadged & Kirin 980?

Just like turtles, it's old stock all the way down.
 
Just a shame these phones do not have access to Google Play Store apps.
