Honor V40 to drop Kirin 9000, chipset,Here’s leak-Techweu


Huawei will sell the Honor division. This is not just a legal shuffle, it also affects the final product. Leak star Digital chat station The Honor V40 series says it doesn’t use the Kirin 9000.

The Honor V30 and V30 Pro used HiSilicon’s 2019 top chip, the Kirin 990 chipset (the Pro is actually a “chip” because it used a slightly more advanced 990 5G chip). If all went well, the V40 would have used HiSilicon’s 2020 flagship chipset.

However, the US-China trade war has prevented TSMC from manufacturing chips for Huawei, and the company is having trouble procuring these chips. It produced millions of units, but they are probably all reserved for Huawei’s Mate 40 flagship. So, to put it simply, Honor couldn’t use the Kirin 9000 even if he wanted to.

The Honor V40 series has the same camera design as the nova 8.

What does the V40 series use instead? Some have suggested that Honor will adopt MediaTek’s Dimensity 1000+ chipset. MediaTek is working on the first 6nm chipset, the MT6893, but it may not be in time.

The Honor V40 is scheduled to go live in mid-December. Earlier rumors claimed that some models would actually use the Kirin 9000, but their plans seem to have changed. The V40 line was also planned to be released on Harmony OS, but I think that not only the hardware but also the software will be split between Huawei and Honor.
