Huawei's next generation flagship smartphone, the Huawei Mate 40, is already in the work. Early reports indicate that the Mate 30 successor will come with penta camera setup at the back that will be housed inside a circular module. Now a new report talks about the processor that will be powering Huawei's next flagship smartphone.

According to a tipster who goes by the name @RODENT950 on Twitter, the Huawei Mate 40 series will be powered by the company's Kirin 1000 SoC that will be manufactured using the 5nm process. The report further states that the Kirin 1000 SoC will be manufactured by TSMC.

Interestingly, a separate report earlier this week suggested that TSMC will supply Kirin 1020 SoC to Huawei, which in turn would power the company's Mate 40 series. However, the new report contradicts this claim indicating that the Mate 40 series will be powered by a different chipset.

The report also says that Kirin 1000 and Kirin 1020 are different processors, which clarifies the confusion, if any, regarding the two chipsets being the same one.
