Huawei will produce the new HiSilicon chip in 2022
The return to 2019 will be very sweet for Huawei fans; Because this company was one of the pioneers in the production of mobile chips in those years. In 2019, Android phones used the products of four main chip manufacturers in the manufacture of phones. Snapdragon series chips were made by Qualcomm, Helio and Dimensity by Mediatek, Exynos by Samsung and HiSilicon Kirin by Huawei.
HiSilicon chips were the leaders of the competitive market at that time; In particular, the HiSilicon Kirin 980, which was first used in the Huawei Mate 20 Pro in 2018, outperformed phones that used the Snapdragon 845. This Hi-Silicon chip enabled fast 40W wired charging for smartphones and included an image signal processor that offered a night photography mode that critics considered one of the best of 2018 (at the time, night mode was still only available on Apple phones).
However, after US sanctions in recent years, Huawei lost access to its chip manufacturing partner, TSMC, and could only use its remaining stock or use Snapdragon 4G chips in the construction of their phones, such as the Huawei P50 Pocket; Because due to this embargo, Huawei was not allowed to even buy 5G Snapdragon chips.
In 2022 and after 2 years, now Huawei has very good news for its fans and its intention to produce HiSilicon has announced new chips. This news has been released through an official poster from Huawei, in which the Chinese giant claims that it will again make a forward move in the chip market in 2022, and fans should wait for the release of the new HiSilicon chip.
Shortly after the publication of this poster, rumors between Chinese users got excited, and especially on Bilibili forums, users believe that HiSilicon’s next chip is likely to be called Skylight 800; But Huawei denied its authenticity in a very quick response to this article.
However, Huawei will release its new HiSilicon chip in 2022 with whatever name it has planned for it (either Skylight , Che Kirin) and this is very good news for fans of this Chinese company.
