Huawei P50 with Kirin processors remains a strong possibility


Huawei will already be thinking about its next P50 tops, which will be launched in the first half of 2021. However, there are still many doubts about them due to the sanctions that the US has enacted on Chinese technology.

Access to Kirin processors is still an uncertainty for the Huawei P50s, but it seems that the Chinese will even use the Kirin 9000 on these devices. At least, that’s what a new report says.

Huawei P50 with Kirin 9000 processor will be the choice

For several months it was speculated that Huawei might not have enough units of its new high-end processor for the Huawei P50. In this sense, the company began to look for alternatives, even contemplating the transition to Qualcomm’s processors.


But it seems that Huawei may even be able to use the Kirin 9000 – launched with the Huawei Mate 40 Pro – in its next tops of the range. We do not know if this is the result of the inventory built by the company or if it is confident of resuming its business with TSMC.

It is important to remember that, a few weeks ago, it was mentioned that TSMC had obtained a special authorization from the USA to resume its partnership with Huawei. However, at the time it was mentioned that Asia could not supply Huawei with 5G-related products, which theoretically excludes the Kirin 9000.

Samsung and LG will also collaborate with Huawei

O the same Elec report says that Huawei will use Samsung and LG for the screens of the Huawei P50. Both South Korean companies are expected to design the OLED screens that we will be able to take advantage of in the next tops of the Chinese range.

Once again, this collaboration is dependent on a special license granted by the USA. Samsung Display already obtained this authorization in October and everything indicates that LG has or is close to achieving the same feat.

Huawei has gradually been given good news that allows it to remain relevant in the smartphone market. Everything indicates that the production of this equipment will continue to be a reality for the company.

However, it is still unable to access Google services, which is very important for its success in Europe. We will see if the new American administration, led by Joe Biden, will allow to reverse this scenario.
