Huawei is preparing its next high-end smartphone and the public is now taking over which processor it will receive, mainly due to restrictions from the US government. The Huawei Mate 40 Pro will appear to include Kirin 1000 processor.
However, there was talk of an even higher series of Kirin 1020, but a well-known leakster published information on Twitter that the news would come with Kirin 1000 chip that will be manufactured by an advanced 5 nm process.
Mate 40 series use 5nm K1000 soc manufactured by TSMC.
Samsung also started to build 5nm production lines.

Deliveries from TSMC, but how?
If you're watching what's going on in the technology world, you've probably noticed disagreements between the US and Huawei. The latest was the Chinese giant lose supplies processors from a Taiwanese company TSMC.
It is TSMC that can use 7 nm and, after the new, 5 nm technology for processors. But how can Huawei deliver them when the US government has banned them from using American technology?
It seems that the agreement between the companies has already taken place before the ban itself and therefore these deliveries must be made. We will therefore be able to experience a completely new dimension of performance thanks to new production technology.
Support will also be a matter of course with the new Kirin 1000 processor 5G networks. However, we do not know further details, but the use of Cortex-A78 cores is still being discussed. However, this is far from confirmed and we have to wait for an official statement.
What we can expect, however, is a huge shift in speed and performance, as well as a significant shift in the rankings of, for example, such an AnTuT.
