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

07 November 2022
US' sanctions make it virtually impossible for Huawei to be competitive in this regard.

Anyway lets keep to tech here and hope they (US) stop their nonsense.

    good old tactics tthat usa uses "its a threat to national security" just like on what they did on middle east just to get that oil its similar on what they did to huawei they chained the company just so they wouldn't get anymore bigger its the power of imperalism folks taiwan is just allied with them but they claimed the manufacturing process itself lmao

If it weren't for them, Huawei would be rising on top of the lines right now.

        The pizza seller cannot use papperoni in their pizza at all because they are banned from using it. The papperoni seller is being toxic and monopolized their product.
        The pizza seller cant even make their own papperoni because its patented.

        If i cant eat pizza because of that, i will blame the papperoni seller.

          GMS is returning to Huawei
          Most likely

            you have to suffer, 07 Nov 2022huawei phones with unisoc shouldnt ever exist. unless it wa... moreThis is about survival huawei needs too make profits and stay in the market making smartphones

            Huawei just have too make the most of what they have available for hardware
            and reduce pricing and do stuff other brands don't do like SD card slot & head jack & removable batterys too make there smartphones better then there competition

            Unfortunately even with one foot in the grave huawei still does not do this and huawei has bad survival instincts

            Not every one is a customer of there flagship device's

            There a huge market for budget smartphones

            In 2019/2020 I think it was

            My family had the huawei p smart 2019 phones when it was on sale at 100 pound

            Most of my family liked them said they run smoothly and where well
            Optimized and they did hit a good price point

            They seemed too like the huawei phones more then other budget & old flagships smartphones in the house for running smoothly

            Myself they just feeled like budget smartphones honestly not anything special smooth but slow
            and perfor older flagships myself

            My dad loyal too the sony brand so he also was not interested in getting one either

            But mum sister & grampa all liked them and think they was the best smartphones for some reason

            In 2022 huawei is rip as no Google play store & services is deal breaker for us

              Avon B7, 09 Nov 2022That is an important point. Unable to compete on standar... moreTotally agree with all your comments.

              Personally I think technology should have no borders. When you actually try to stop a country from progressing while that country progressed in 10 years more than others in 50 all you do is to stop the evolution to better tech available for everyone.

              When money are getting involved and they matter more than what that product can do, we have this kind of situations.

              Sadly, nothing is sorted out yet. We can see the tensions around Taiwan as US/Europe have interests and all they do is to protect their interests/investments and revenues. China want`s a slice of that pie as well. Therefore if we still have this "silent" conflict between US and China, there will be not only 1 country losing but every country...all for...money.

              Personally I wasn`t interested in who is the leader as long as the device I was using was doing what I needed to do. It didn`t matter who sells more or less to me. Been on both sides (Android and iOS) and it`s sad that we had to be put in this position of lacking access to technology.

              Oh...and for those blaming China of stealing government secrets, being spies...just take a look at US and how many spies they have in all Europe governments...

              Also, I`m still waiting for US to sue China for this? Why they don`t do it? Why they don`t put forward the proof of what Huawei was doing? Any trials? Nothing. So many questions and nothing but statements with no proof.

                SineNomine, 09 Nov 2022The only issue here is that China only banned these compani... moreThat is an important point.

                Unable to compete on standard industry practices and seeing the progress China had made, the US decided to wreck the system and poison the global supply chain.

                That global supply chain is not happy.

                The US literally wants to dictate the terms under which sovereign companies can do business but 'after the fact'.

                The best practice is to warn companies of restrictions prior to them incorporating it into their products. That way they know what they are dealing with.

                After the fact, unilateral, extraterritorial 'sanctions' undermine the entire system and are ill advised.

                Now China has put into place laws to protect companies from buckling to external pressure which may harm its companies (similar to EU laws which do the same).

                It hasn't acted on them - yet.

                  SineNomine, 09 Nov 2022The real question that you should ask yourself is...can US ... moreThere have been dominant chipsets as long as there have been chips. Not too long ago around half the cars produced worldwide had embedded PowerPC chips in things like ABS systems. We had Texas Instruments, Motorola etc. As we moved into the digital age ATM has come to the fore.

                  For one reason or another something else will come along. We already have a bigger push into RISC-V and of course then there is the elephant in the room.

                  Non-silicon chipsets. We know silicon has an EOL date. We just don't know when it is. However silicon has peaked in terms of its lifespan as a technology although perhaps not in absolute numbers.

                  So when will something like photonics make a breakthrough and who will make it?

                    meha, 08 Nov 2022It's funny people blaming the us. The us government di... moreIt is perfectly reasonable to blame the US. That is happening across governments and tech companies the world over right now.

                    No allied governments were consulted prior to the latest sanctions getting approved. The US tech industry wasn't consulted either. The whole thing was clearly ill thought out and totally rushed. Now the US has a serious problem.

                    It has clipped the wings of its own tech industry which will lose billions in lost revenues in the next quarter. Their biggest clients are Chinese.

                    The problem is that their non-Chinese competitors can replace them for technology that doesn't contain US technology. That means China is logically pumping huge orders into those companies right now. It will take many months for the US to negotiate with governments in an attempt to pull them into line and there lies another huge problem. The US does not attempt to pull allies into line. It tries to bludgeon them into line with threats and intimidation.

                    Frankly, that kind of attitude does not go down well in places like the EU (an open competitor to US technology just like China).

                    So the EU countries are saying something like this: "You're telling us what we have to do through weaponisation of your technology which might only represent a fraction of the finished product. You are doing this unilaterally and without consultation and impacting our own industries and infrastructure. We will have to reconsider our options".

                    Now, on a commercial level, those decisions were taken in 2019 with the Huawei sanctions. Non-US companies saw US technology in their products as toxic and began to plan its erradication. That is a process that could take 4-6 years depending on the complexity of the product in question.

                    Make no mistake. Absolutely all tech companies (including the hundreds of US companies that applied for licences to do business with China) want to trade with China.

                    The US effectively shot itself in the head with the policy it chose. It's just that the bullet hasn't hit yet.

                        In order to create a different chip technology you have to start it all over again from 2 digit nm sizes and to be efficient and competitive would take years to any company in the world, not only Huawei.

                        At the moment, ARM is the best and most reliable technology for chip production.
                        US just bought the company (they invented nothing) and they`ve put monopoly on production, they can decide who is allowed and who it isn`t to use the tech.

                        Again, they are owners, not inventors :)

They haven`t put any restrictions against these companies to function outside China while US restricted Huawei to build and sell Kirin outside their own country as they could only ban the products from their country instead of forcing them out of business. Last time I`ve checked Google, Uber, Facebook etc are usable in other countries. Therefore, your answer is totally biased as it make no sense in this context...as "revenge" US could`ve block...let`s say...Alibaba. Wish, Gearbest, Fastech and so on...

                            Oh and btw...Uber doesn`t exist in a lot of countries as it`s banned but who cares...what it matters is that China banned them there ;)
