Huawei: No, Kirin chips won't return in 2023

Ro, 07 November 2022

There's been a rumor going around on the Chinese social network Weibo, regarding Kirin's return in 2023. Due to US sanctions, Huawei has been restricted from using certain technologies and doing business with some entities and as a result, the company's in-house Kirin SoC's development and production came to a halt.

Huawei: No, Kirin chips won't return in 2023

Now there were multiple reports that development has been restarted and we might see a return of the lineup. However, in an official response, Huawei denied those rumors.
