Chinese smartphone manufacturer Huawei confirmed that its latest in-house Huawei Kirin 990 chipset would be announced at its event on September 6.

The Kirin 990 would be produced on TSMC’s 7nm EUV process which will provide 20 per cent greater transistor density and in turn increased power efficiency, news portal GSMArena reported on Friday.

The company officially posted “Huawei Kirin 990 Warm-up” teaser video on YouTube which details the chipset would come with 5G capabilities.

Amid the US-China trade war, Huawei has disclosed that the company is willing to share its know-how of existing 5G technology for a fee with a western firm.

The proposal, made by Huawei Founder and CEO Ren Zhengfei, in interviews with The Economist and the New York Times, is seen as a move to put concerns about the security of the company’s 5G technology to rest.

According to a report in the BBC, while the US and Australia have banned their networks from using Huawei’s equipment, the UK is still weighing a decision.

Huawei has repeatedly denied accusations of spying for the Chinese government.

“(Huawei is) open to sharing our 5G technologies and techniques with US companies, so that they can build up their own 5G industry,” the NYT quoted Ren as saying.

“This would create a balanced situation between China, the US and Europe.”
