Can Huawei’s New Mate 60 Chipsets Compete with Apple and Qualcomm?

Can Huawei’s New Mate 60 Chipsets Compete with Apple and Qualcomm?

Huawei has announced the Mate 60 Pro+, the latest addition to its Mate 60 series of smartphones. The Mate 60 Pro+ comes just over a week after Huawei unveiled the Mate 60 Pro, its first 5G phone in three years. Both phones are powered by Huawei’s own Kirin 5G chipset, manufactured by China’s SMIC using its 7nm fabrication process. The chipset has drawn scrutiny from the U.S. due to restrictions preventing Huawei from obtaining cutting-edge chips.

The Mate 60 Pro+ will be released on October 9th, with Huawei now accepting pre-orders. The phone connects to two satellites simultaneously for phone calls and texts when cellular connectivity is unavailable. It also offers 16GB RAM with 512GB or 1TB storage options.

The Mate 60 series marks a breakthrough for Huawei, with its homegrown Kirin 9000s chipset providing 5G connectivity without the workaround required for last year’s Mate 50 and P60 phones. However, the Kirin 9000s is still several generations behind rival chips like Apple’s A17 Bionic expected in the iPhone 15 Pro models. The A17 will leverage TSMC’s 3nm process versus SMIC’s 7nm process for the Kirin 9000s.

Early benchmarking suggests the Mate 60 Pro delivers faster 5G speeds than competing flagship devices. This is seen as an achievement given U.S. restrictions on Huawei’s access to cutting-edge chip technology, per analyst Dan Hutcheson.

The Huawei Mate X5 book-style foldable phone

Alongside the Mate 60 Pro+, Huawei also introduced a new folding Mate X5 phone. It has a 6.4-inch external display and 7.85-inch internal foldable screen. The Mate X5 will be offered in multiple memory and storage configurations up to 16GB RAM and 1TB storage. It packs a 50MP main camera alongside ultra-wide and periscope telephoto lenses.

    1. Great question! We’ll have to wait for full reviews but Huawei does have a track record for amazing mobile cameras. The rumored specs sound highly competitive. Should give iPhone 14 Pro a run for its money!

    1. For sure, their folding displays are top-notch. And having a book-style fold is a smart design. The Mate X5 display specs sound really impressive for a foldable.
