The Huawei Mate 60 Pro has generated controversy worldwide. The focus is on its chip, specifically its SoC, as the United States is meticulously analyzing the lithographic technology used through reverse engineering. In addition, SK Hynix is upset because Huawei has obtained its memory chips without a license or permission. However, something has now been revealed that will send shivers down the spines of three more companies: Apple, Qualcomm, and MediaTek. Huawei has unlocked the Kirin 9000S, going from 8 to 12 cores.

Huawei has caused fear in many governments and companies. The West is investigating how Huawei has managed to manufacture the Kirin 9000S with different parts of the SoC at 7 nm and 10 nm, without EUV. In addition, designers also do not understand how the distribution of cores and the integrated GPU has been achieved. This new discovery adds more questions to this case.

The latest update of the Hongmeng operating system (known as Harmony in the West) has left users puzzled. In version, insignificant improvements were incorporated, except for an unexpected change. The smartphone went from having 8 cores (with a configuration of 2.62 GHz + 2.15 GHz + 1.53 GHz) to having 12 cores distributed as follows: 2 x 2.62 GHz, 4 x 1.53 GHz, and 6 x 2.15 GHz.

This change in the number of cores poses a direct threat to the West. Huawei has achieved something seemingly impossible under these circumstances, although it is still unclear how they have done it. In addition, the SoC specifications have undergone significant modifications compared to the previous ones. Frequencies have decreased by 500 MHz in the first cores (allowing for an additional one), 1 GHz in the second cores (allowing for the addition of another core), and 100 MHz in the efficiency cores (adding two more cores).

Although there is little information available, it is suspected that Huawei attempted to limit the impact of its SoC initially to avoid raising suspicions, but since that didn’t work, they have unlocked the Kirin 9000S. Undoubtedly, Huawei is playing games and gradually revealing the surprises of this SoC. We will have to wait and see how the West reacts to this situation. Stricter sanctions may be imposed on the company and on China in general.
