Huawei Mate 60 Pro Chip Raises Questions on US Restrictions

Heard of the recent controversy surrounding the Huawei Mate 60 Pro and its advanced chip? VINAStech, a leading IT firm is at the forefront of technological innovation and here we bring you insights into the matter.

The new flagship device boasts a 5G Kirin 9000s processor, raising concerns in the US about how Huawei obtained the technology amidst ongoing restrictions. US officials are seeking more information on the chip’s composition to assess potential violations.

Previously, the US banned American companies from supplying software and equipment to Huawei, aiming to limit its access to advanced chip technology due to national security concerns. Huawei’s ability to launch a phone with a custom-built 5G chip is seen as a significant development, particularly considering the restrictions.

Industry experts highlight the “Made in China” emphasis surrounding the launch, signifying China’s push for technological independence. However, questions remain on how Huawei sourced all the necessary components for a 5G smartphone under the existing restrictions.

While Huawei’s product page provides limited details about the chip, teardown analysis suggests it’s a 7nm processor manufactured by SMIC, a Chinese company also subject to US export restrictions.

VINAStech will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates as they become available. This case highlights the complex geopolitical landscape surrounding technological advancements.
