In recent times, Chinese manufacturing giant, Huawei, has been all about trademarks. We have seen a trademark application for “Huawei Mate V”, “Ark Compiler” and even “MateStation”. Now, a Weibo user @ChanganDigital spotted another Huawei trademark online. This time, the trademark is for a new Kirin logo. The trademark logo looks like a baby Dragon with a horseshoe. The Dragon looks like those we usually see on conventional Chinese images. However, this one comes with legs and wings.
The Weibo post comes with the message
“Remember this cute super cute unicorn icon, you can only see it, you can’t use it. Huawei has applied for a trademark for this icon. The company’s search data shows that it has just been applied. If there is no accident, it is proprietary of Huawei’s unicorn chip. Look at this icon carefully, there is still a trace of joy in Pride, do you think this icon looks like?
From the screenshots, Huawei applied for registration of this Kirin chip trademark logo in June this year. Looking at this image, Huawei is trying to depict a happy scenario with its new Kirin logo. The hairy expression of this image suggests that this is one happy Dragon. However, this does not take away all the troubles that Kirin is currently facing. Huawei Kirin chip is a high-performance chip series developed by Huawei and is the main chip of Huawei’s products.
Well, does Kirin even have a logo before now? Oh yes, it does, just a simple plain red ribbon. In fact, many do not even consider that as a logo. However, the new Dragon logo depicts something powerful yet friendly. Nevertheless, the new logo does not completely abandon its predecessor. Looking at the chest of the Dragon, you will see the original Kirin logo. This shows that the new logo is retaining its roots.
Huawei Kirin new trademark may never become official
It is important to note that this is only a trademark. Just like patents, trademarks almost never become official. Thus, this trademark filing is not an express proof that we will be seeing this design on Kirin chips soon. Furthermore, considering the issues that HiSilicon is facing presently, this new logo may have to wait a while before it is officially unveiled. We will have to wait and see what Huawei will eventually do with this trademark.
