Not so long ago, information appeared that TSMC rejected an order worth $ 700 million for the production of 5- and 7-nm HiSilicon Kirin processors. The reason is US sanctions against Huawei. Then it was said that because of this, Huawei may have problems with the production of the flagship chip Kirin 1020. But now it became known that the situation is not so bad.
It is alleged that TSMC is required to fulfill significant volumes of Huawei orders, which are not subject to US sanctions. We are talking about products that provide 5- and 12-nanometer manufacturing technology.
And this, according to observers, means that TSMC, at least initially, will be able to provide Huawei with Kirin 1020 processors, which should be manufactured using 5 nm standards.
For Huawei, the release of Kirin 1020 chips is of great importance, as they will form the basis of future top-level smartphones Mate 40 Series. The announcement of these powerful 5G-enabled devices will take place in the second half of this year.
Alas, in the future, under the yoke of US sanctions, Huawei will have to revise the production strategy of its mobile processors and other microchips.
