The world’s largest smartphone supplier, Huawei, has announced an impending processor shortage. Due to US sanctions, the company will soon run out of chips of its own design. Huawei’s Consumer General Manager Richard Yu said the company will no longer be able to produce its own Kirin chipsets from next month due to continued economic pressure from the United States.
Richard Yu clarified that due to the second round of US sanctions, Huawei’s manufacturing partners have stopped accepting new orders for chipsets for the Chinese smartphone maker. Production under existing contracts will end on 15 September.
“The latest generation of Huawei’s high-performance Kirin chips could be released this year,” he added.
Accordingly, Huawei Mate 40, which is scheduled for presentation in September, may be the last smartphone with a Kirin processor.
We will remind, in the middle of May this year it became known that TSMC has stopped accepting new orders for the production of chips for Huawei due to the next US restrictions.
