Huawei wants to abandon Qualcomm processors in favor of their Kirin

Huawei wants to reduce its dependence on Qualcomm and MediaTek by using its processors.

What will change

Expected that

in the second half of 201960% of Huawei smartphones will run on Hisilicon Kirin processors. For comparison, in the first half of the year they were used in 45% of devices, and in the second half of 2018 - in less than 40%. This means that more than 150 million Huawei phones will implement the Kirin SoC. Total planned deliveries for 2019 are 270 million units.

In any case, this will not greatly affect the topHuawei smartphones, since the company has been using Kirin chipsets for a long time in most of its flagships. For budget phones, it still buys MediaTek and Qualcomm processors.
