Kirin 1020Now that the US trade ban also involves suppliers like TSMC, there’s a growing concern as to what will happen to Huawei and its future devices.

Fortunately for the company, it seems that these actions will not affect the production of its upcoming 5nm SoC, the Kirin 1020, as the sanction only involves future orders, while those already placed will still push through.

TSMC’s 7nm manufacturing capacity is already full, while 5nm is at 50%. This only means that while the future isn’t looking so well for the Kirin 990 and 980, both of which are 7nm SoC’s, the Kirin 1020 will still arrive on schedule for the company’s Mate 40 series.

The ban takes place in September, so Huawei still has time to take the necessary actions. For now, those waiting for the Mate 40 can take a bit of a breather.
