Some images of Huawei P60 Pro have leaked online, revealing the Kirin 9000s chipset. The previously unveiled Huawei Mate 50 Pro came with Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1.

Due to sanctions from the USA, Huawei opted for the 4G variant of Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 on their previous Mate 50 Pro model. Although Huawei has the capability to integrate Snapdragon chipsets into its devices, the chipsets are unable to offer 5G connectivity for Huawei. Huawei might be bringing back the Kirin chipset to give people 5G connectivity.
The cores of Kirin 9000s appear differently in two different applications, one application shows that the Kirin 9000s consists of 4 x 2.15GHz high frequency cores and 4 x 1.53GHz low frequency cores, while the other application shows 1 x 2.62GHz prime core + 3 x 2.15GHz large cores and 4 x 1.53GHz small cores.
Additional details about the chipset are not clear, but it’s important to note that Huawei cannot produce new chipsets, and this chipset, despite being marketed as new, might essentially be an older generation chipset.
As Huawei is unable to manufacture Kirin chipsets on their own, their recent phones with Snapdragon chipsets only support 4G connectivity. This, in turn, results in a subpar user experience for Huawei flagship users.
Here is what Mate 60 Pro looks like. The design of Huawei Mate 60 Pro seems quite interesting as it has an iPhone 14 Pro like Dynamic Island notch and it has quite thin screen bezels. What it does have just like iPhone 14 series is the satellite connectivity but we don’t know whether it will work outside of China.
The Device Info HW app reveals the chipset has 5nm manufacturing process but we know that Huawei can’t design new chipsets or manufacture them, the app reports false information or Huawei is back again with their modern chipsets. The Mate 60 Pro got 600K points on AnTuTu but the phone seems failed the GPU testing, that’s quite understandable as the phone just surfaced.
