Huawei’s business CEO Richard Yu said the company would stop producing its own processors, the Kirin. This decision was made following the restrictions that the United States placed on TSMC, Huawei’s largest supplier of components for processors.
This is a decision that will change the company’s future completely. Huawei has spent the last few years developing Kirin processors, which have brought several innovations to smartphones when it comes to the efficiency and artificial intelligence of chips.
As of September 15, confirms Richard Yu, Huawei will stop producing Kirin processors. The CEO admits that it is a huge loss for the company, especially after the years and years of development and available resources.
When these restrictions started, Huawei started using MediaTek processors. However, MediaTek remains a company with links to China, which may eventually come under scrutiny from the United States.
The solution is simple: Snapdragon!
As we have been mentioning, Huawei has a golden opportunity here to resolve the conflict with the United States once and for all: using Snapdragon processors. The whole conflict between Huawei and the United States started because Huawei did not want to use American processors.
With all these developments, the best solution is for Huawei to do like Samsung and use Snapdragon exclusively in the American market. In the Chinese and European markets, the brand can simply use Kirin. Hopefully Huawei (and China) understand that this is the best way to resolve the situation.
