Trade Ban Defied? Huawei Mate 60 Pro’s Surprising Inner Secrets Revealed
Investigation Launched as SK Hynix RAM Chips Raise Questions; Durability Test Uncovers Huawei's Secret
In a surprising turn of events, the teardown of the Huawei Mate 60 Pro has sent shockwaves through both political and corporate circles. The burning question on everyone’s mind is: How did Huawei manage to incorporate a 5G-ready, 7nm chipset into the device amid the looming US trade ban restrictions? It’s a conundrum that has perplexed many.
Adding another layer of intrigue to the situation, a recent teardown of the phone has surfaced in English, providing further insight but leaving the mystery intact. A closer look at the phone’s motherboard reveals a conspicuous absence – the HiSilicon Kirin 9000s chipset, the very heart of the device, remains shrouded in secrecy. What is visible, however, are the SK Hynix RAM chips conspicuously positioned above it. This revelation has deepened the enigma, given that SK Hynix has stated it ceased supplying components to Huawei back in 2020, when the sanctions were imposed.
Amidst these revelations, the Korean hardware giant, SK Hynix, has launched an investigation to uncover the clandestine means by which Huawei managed to incorporate these RAM chips into the Mate 60. The quest for answers intensifies, as the intrigue surrounding the phone’s inner workings deepens.
On a different note, PBKreviews conducted a rigorous drop test on the Huawei Mate 60 Pro, unveiling the impressive durability of Huawei’s Kunlun 2 glass. This revelation carries particular significance, considering that the 6.82″ LTPO AMOLED display on the phone proved exceptionally challenging to remove and incurred irreparable damage during the process.
As a consequence of these findings, the Huawei Mate 60 Pro has been assigned a repairability rating of 5/10. The complexity associated with removing the display emerges as a pivotal factor, hindering easy access to the internal components and making most repair tasks a formidable undertaking.
The enigma surrounding Huawei’s ability to integrate advanced components amid trade restrictions continues to baffle observers, leaving them eagerly awaiting further developments in this intriguing saga.
