Previously, 70-80% of Huawei smartphones used single-chip HiSilicon systems, but this year the situation will change, as the Chinese company is looking for an alternative to Kirin. According to reports, the number of orders for MediaTek single-chip systems for Huawei smartphones has already increased by more than 300%.

MediaTek chips are expected to hit mid-range and high-end Huawei mobile phones. In the past, Huawei only used MediaTek chips in low- and mid-range smartphones.
