The company usually unveils its latest Kirin chipset at IFA 2020, but now the conference in Berlin, Germany, is over, with no platform in sight.

Last month Richard Yu did say the Mate 40 family will use HiSilicon chips but did not say what happens after that. Reports are the United States is trying to block TSMC from manufacturing the platforms, and Qualcomm also expressed concerns on the issue.
