Does Huawei still want to increase the price of its “iPhone 40” chip?

On September 16, apple brought the A14 processor to its autumn conference. Unfortunately, the annual drama iPhone 12 did not appear. However, according to various sources, the iPhone 12 will definitely meet with us in mid October. Coincidentally, due to the U.S. sanctions, Huawei’s mate 40 series, which carries a 5nm Kirin 9000 chip, was also delayed until October. < / P > < p > compared with the current 7Nm chips, A14 and Kirin 9000 in 5nm technology not only improve the performance, but also greatly reduce the power consumption, which is enough to maintain the high power consumption of 5g mobile phones and bring good service life. However, judging from the current situation, it seems that neither the high-profile iPhone 12 with 5nm A14 chip nor the mate 40 with Kirin 9000 chip seems to be less fragrant. < / P > < p > as early as the first half of the year, the supply chain announced that the iPhone 12 series will no longer come with headphones and chargers. This is to reduce environmental pollution and reduce costs. I thought the price of the iPhone 12 series would be the same as that of the iPhone 11 series, starting from $699 and starting at 5499 yuan from BOC. < / P > < p > the starting prices of the other three models were US $799, US $1049 and US $1149, all of which rose. The iPhone 12 pro and the iPhone 12 Pro Max were OK, up $50. They were originally very expensive, so it doesn’t matter if they were more. As an upgrade of the iPhone 11, the price of the iPhone 12 has increased by $100, or 14.3%. According to this proportion, the price of the Bank of China should be around 6500 yuan, 1000 yuan more than the iPhone 11. < / P > < p > it is also reported that the cheapest iPhone 12 Mini will not only increase its price, but also use the “shrunken” A14 chip, or B14. Compared with the “full blood version” A14, although B14 is also based on 5nm process, its performance will be reduced a lot, which is similar to A13. < / P > < p > even if the A14 is full of blood, its performance is better than that of A13. The CPU performance is about 16% higher and the GPU is about 8% higher. A14 with 5nm technology can really reduce the energy consumption of mobile phones. Unfortunately, the battery capacity has dropped again. It’s really bright in the East but not in the West. Recently, some netizens said that someone was using Huawei mate40 pro on the subway. From the video point of view, it should be the real or engineering machine of mate40 pro. It adopts waterfall screen and front double digging screen design, and the boot key is red. As for when the mate40 series will be released, Yu Chengdong said in an interview some time ago: “please wait a moment, everything will come as scheduled.”. As for the date of this “period”, it is now the end of September. It must be October. According to the media, it will be in the middle and late October, about the same time as the release of the iPhone 12. < / P > < p > after changing the 5nm chip, the super large mate40 PRO + naturally has great strength, so even if the price is not increased, the price of mate40 PRO + will be 8000-9000 yuan, far exceeding the purchase budget of most users. Many people want to buy mate40 series, that is, they go for the “out of print” Kirin 9000. The remnant blood version of Kirin 9000e will not be their dish, and mate 40 Pro is the target. < p > < p > as we all know, Huawei chartered a plane to Taiwan to ship the chips back to Taiwan before September 16. Since then, TSMC can no longer contract Kirin chips for Huawei. It is said that the number of chips is more than 100 million, but the chips of MediaTek account for the majority. In addition, the Kirin 820, 990, 9000e chips with 7Nm technology and Kirin 9000 with 5nm technology are not too many, probably only about 10 million. < p > < p > Kirin 9000 will not only supply the mate40 series, but also the glory V40 series to be released next year, and Huawei’s P50 series to be launched next year. At present, the 5nm chip of MediaTek has not been put into mass production, so it can only be supported by the Kirin 9000 in stock, with one less than the other. < / P > < p > although the price is high, it still can’t stop the enthusiasm of Chinese people to buy mate40 pro, but due to the lack of core, the number of mate40 Pro is certainly limited. Therefore, mate40 Pro is likely to be sold in limited quantities, especially in the early days of its launch. Once the mate 40 pro of Kirin 9000 is sold out, it will use Kirin 9000e with 7Nm or Tianji 1000 + from MediaTek. < / P > < p > the price of the iPhone 12 increases, and the mate 40 Pro needs to be seized. I feel that the mobile phone with 5nm chip is no longer fragrant. What do you think? Continue ReadingASMC, a lithography maker, was one of TSMC’s 14 top suppliers last year
