Huawei Kirin

According to hardware vendors for Huawei, the Chinese company is seeking to reduce its dependence on Qualcomm and MediaTek by using more self-produced Kirin chipsets on its smartphones in the near future.

Reportedly, Huawei’s own chipsets are expected to be used by about 60% more on the company’s devices in the second half of 2019.

For comparison, in the 2018 quarter, less than 40% of Huawei phones use Kirin chipsets. While Q1 / 2019 this Chinese phone manufacturer used its processors in about 45% of devices. Therefore, in the second half of 2019, analysts expect more than 150 million smart phones Huawei will be equipped with “Kirin” chipsets in a total of 270 million units shipped in 2019.

Reportedly, Huawei has been using its high-end mobile SoC for a long time, but most of its mid-range and low-cost devices still rely on Qualcomm and MediaTek chips. Everything is changing and Kirin 810 (7nm) is recently released as a clear indicator of change in trends. Therefore, it is likely that this SoC will be equipped for a significant number of Huawei’s mid-range devices in the near future.
