Huawei plans to build its own chipset factory in Shanghai. Media commented that this is regarded as the best solution for the company to continue its hardware business and respond to the US ban. British media said the factory will also produce parts for Huawei’s other hardware businesses.
The new factory will be operated by the integrated circuit research and development center of a partner company of Huawei.
At present, the factory is more like an experimental institution, but when it starts to produce chipsets for user terminal products, it can be regarded as Huawei’s chip factory.
Huawei plans to produce 45nm chipsets first, then 28nm chipsets in 2021, and 20nm chipsets in 2022.
Media commented that although this is not an ideal development speed for Huawei and may make it lag behind other competitors in the hardware market, it is a very necessary investment for Huawei’s long-term survival. .
International media pointed out that although these produced chipsets may be suitable for IoT devices and 5G network hardware, they are not good enough for Huawei’s smartphone business.
Although Huawei has been working hard to find broader overseas markets, and some suppliers have also shown interest, but the United States’ ban has made all these efforts inoperable, and Huawei can only “survive alone.”
International media said that Huawei currently launched the Mate 40 flagship smartphone series. The highlight is the company’s first Kirin 9000 processor based on the 5nm process.
Although suppressed by the United States, the series of products still have many bright spots. In the domestic market, the response of users speaks for itself.
Some chinese media reporters learned from Huawei flagship stores or authorized experience stores in Beijing, Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Zhengzhou, Chengdu and other places that only Mate40 Pro black and white models can be reserved at many stores, and other versions have been suspended, but they are in stock Time cannot be guaranteed.
