Two thirds of the semiconductors in the Huawei Mate 60 Pro

Two-thirds of the semiconductors in the Huawei Mate 60 Pro come from China. This is much more than its predecessors

Huawei’s new flagship smartphone contains more Chinese-made semiconductor components than the company’s previous models, reflecting China’s advances in chip manufacturing. This will be reported Reuters with reference to information provided by experts at the research company TechInsights.

“It appears to be more than half, maybe even two-thirds of the silicon [в Huawei Mate 60 Pro] – These are local developments, while with the phones we saw two to three years ago, a third were local. You have made another breakthrough.”, TechInsights analyst Dan Hutcheson told Reuters. The Ottawa-based company has been examining the components of the Huawei Mate 60 Pro since last weekend and found that the smartphone has a processor manufactured by the Chinese company SMIC using the 7nm process.

“Meaning [этого факта] is that China is two to two and a half generations behind the world’s best companies in terms of technical processes. It was assumed that they would be stopped at 14 nm.Hutcheson remarked. Some research companies assume that the 7nm process in SMIC implementation leads to a high scrap rate – the yield of good products is only 50% compared to the industry norm of 90%, giving Huawei 2-4 million chips, however, that’s not enough to bring the company back to its previous positions in the smartphone market.

According to Hutcheson, it makes more sense to speak of an indicator of “over 50%” – the chip is of higher quality than the Chinese 7nm samples TechInsights examined last year. “You can judge it by how well it’s made. China buys equipment [для производства полупроводниковых компонентов] like crazy so they are probably already able to make them with good yields.”added the expert.
