Huawei itself will produce chips for its smartphones

It has been rumored for quite some time that Huawei is preparing to build its own chips. Digitimes reports that Huawei will build its first wafer manufacturing facility in Wuhan, Hubei province. Starting next year, the company plans to start production in stages.

Sources say this factory was originally used to manufacture microcircuits and optical communication modules in order to achieve self-sufficiency and support the production of the required chipsets.

Huawei is best known for its dominance in telecommunications equipment. The company sells a variety of services and consumer products to both commercial and industry partners.

Currently, Huawei R&D Institute, located in Wuhan, employs about 10,000 people in research and development, mainly in optical communications equipment, HiSilicon chips and automotive laser radars.

It is reported that the creation of the Huawei HiSilicon plant in Wuhan started in 2019. Then this project was first mentioned as the HiSilicon factory, but later the news disappeared from the discussion.

It remains to be believed that the Chinese tech company will be able to create its own chips for smartphones and other IoT devices, because ordinary users benefit from the competition in the market.
