Huawei Kirin 990 chip confirmed, 5G implementation still in question
It may have been given a slight reprieve but Huawei is definitely not wasting time in preparing itself for a dark future. It is lining up its game pieces to ensure that, even without key US products, it will still be able offer premium smartphones to the market. It may not yet be keen on turning its Harmony OS into a smartphone OS but it is hastening its position in the mobile chip race. The Chinese manufacturer has finally confirmed the existence and upcoming announcement of the Kirin 990 chip and, unsurprisingly, it is focusing on 5G yet again. 5G is the battle cry of many in the mobile market, from network operators to smartphone makers. It is also one of the areas where Huawei boasts it has a lead, which, in turn, could put the US at a disadvantage if the government pursues its blacklisting of the company. That said, while Huawei already showed its 5G hand with the Mate 20 X, it was relieved not to be a winning hand after all.
