If Huawei will still be on Trumps’s trade blacklist, it might not launch with a Google-approved Android version. But things might change.
Powering the new device could be the Kirin 990 or Kirin 1000 Soc. The Kirin 990 processor is featured on the Mate 30 series and the Mate X. The Kirin 1000 is expected to launch with next years Mate 40 series and pack more transistors than its predecessor which currently boasts of having 10.3 billion transistors. A more powerful ARM Cortex-A77 CPU will also be on the SoC.
We’ll keep you posted on new updates.
