The Huawei Mate 40 (or Mate 40 Pro) will be the Chinese smartphone’s next smartphone, scheduled for release in the last quarter of the year. As always, leaks are emerging that revealed 12 GB of RAM and 512 GB of internal storage.

It has also been confirmed that the Huawei Mate 40 will come equipped with the Kirin 1000 processor and will be the first to debut the chip. The Kirin 1000 is a 5 nm processor that promises not to disappoint performance, just like the models of the past.

However, this may be Huawei’s latest Kirin processor. This is because the latest developments in the conflict between Huawei and the United States suggest that the brand will switch to a chip supplier.


Huawei will stick with MediaTek or Snapdragon

Richard Yu, one of Huawei’s leaders, confirmed in an interview that Kirin processors would stop being produced. Therefore, Huawei is left with two supply options: MediaTek or Qualcomm.

When the United States began making it difficult to supply processor components to Huawei, the company quickly turned to MediaTek, one of its competitors in the processor market. However, there are rumors that some mid-range equipment from the brand will come with MediaTek.

The other hypothesis is Qualcomm, with the Snapdragon. Let us recall that Huawei refused to put Snapdragon processors on its mobile phones. This was the decision that led the United States to ban the company completely, triggering this whole conflict.
