Huawei reportedly has only 8.8 million Kirin 9000 chips for the Mate 40 smartphones

Huawei is going to launch its next flagship chipset, called Kirin 9000, on the 5 nm processing technology, and it is said to be the first platform with a built-in 5G modem. Initial reports were that the Chinese company TSMC had ordered to produce 15 million units, but the latest report says there will only be about 8.8 million chips.

In detail, one lekster on Weibo confirmed that the waffles of 5 nm are a total of 22 000. One wafer can yield about 400 deaths, and with the simple mathematical trick called multiplication, we can get the full amount of actual disk sets that the Taiwanese manufacturer can supply Huawei.

The first expectation was that the Mate 40 devices would reach 8 million shipments from launch in October to the end of the calendar year. However, with the latest bans imposed on companies by the United States and working with Huawei, TSMC will not be able to produce more chips in the near future.

If the figure of 8.8 million is true, and this lexicon has a history of right, so we prefer to trust him, it could mean that Huawei Mate 40 may not sell as well as everyone expects, which is the uncertainty about the mobile future of Huawei deepened. .
