Amidst the US sanctions, Huawei is pushing the boundaries even more with the launch of the Kirin 9006C SoC.

It is built on the 5nm process node said to be developed by Semiconductor Manufacturing International Corporation (SMIC). The chipset itself features four Arm Cortex-A77 performance cores and four Arm Cortex-A55 efficiency cores. These can be clocked at up to 3.13GHz.

The rest of its spec sheet though isn’t known as of writing this.

Huawei has been struggling since the aforementioned sanctions which cut the company off from companies like Qualcomm, MediaTek, and even Google. However, it has slowly begun to pick up speed again with the release of the Mate 60 series which impressed in domestic sales. The Mate 60 is powered by the Kirin 9000S processor and developed by SMIC.

The Kirin 9000S and 9006C aren’t quite up to par with the latest from Qualcomm and MediaTek but it is proof that the sanctions won’t stop the Chinese tech giant from innovating and making its own chips to drive and power its smartphones and laptops.

That said though, there has been no confirmation yet on which mobile device this 5nm processor will be featured but as of now, it can only be seen under the hood of the Qingyun L540 laptop.
