Unveiling the Inner Secrets of the Huawei Mate 60 Pro: A Teardown Experience

The Huawei Mate 60 Pro came as a surprise to everyone. The company silently launched the device without holding a special launch event like it usually does. On August 30th, 2023, the Chinese tech giant listed the flagship device on its e-commerce platform Vmall. This, however, was not the only Suprise, as the device came with something more. Surprisingly, the handset is powered by Huawei’s own Kirin 9000s chipset. The Kirin chip has been Huawei’s own designed chip which it used in building its smartphones until the U.S sanctions kicked in. Apart from that, the device also rocks a 5G chip which has gone missing in Huawei smartphones for a couple of years due the same sanctions imposed by the United States government.

Since the company launched the device without an event, the world could hardly confirm that the handset actually packs these chips. However, a teardown video has finally confirmed the accuracy of these speculations.

Merely one day after the unexpected official announcement of the Huawei Mate 60 Pro, the initial disassembly video has surfaced. This video serves as both a step-by-step guide through the disassembly process and an opportunity to closely inspect the internal components of the phone. The new flagship from Huawei stands out with its sizable vapor chamber, measuring around 7,000mm2. This marks a notable improvement over its predecessor and sets it apart from other devices on the market.

Huawei Mate 60 Pro Features a Kirin Chip Huawei Mate 60 Pro

Prior to the launch, there were speculations about the return of the Huawei Kirin chip. Huawei stopped using the Kirin Chip in 2020 due to the US sanctions. Many analysts stated that producing high-end chips from scratch within these few years was very difficult. Despite the challenges, Huawei remained committed to competing in the smartphone market and worked hard to reintroduce the Kirin chip as soon as possible.

The video provided insight into the chipset, which Huawei hadn’t officially disclosed during the announcement. The chipset is indeed a Kirin system-on-chip (SoC), with strong indications pointing towards the Kirin 9000s model.

The Huawei Mate 60 Pro Features a Dedicated Chip for Satellite Connectivity Huawei Mate 60 Pro

Lastly, the teardown video highlights the dedicated chip responsible for enabling satellite connectivity on the Mate 60 Pro. While having satellite connectivity is noteworthy, the distinct feature here is the presence of a dedicated chip. For instance, in the case of iPhone 14 devices, they can send emergency text messages via satellite through a clever workaround using the phone’s antennas. The Mate 60 Pro seems to offer a potentially more advanced solution in this regard.

With the Huawei Mate 60 Pro, the satellite feature goes the extra mile beyond just sending messages. This smartphone can be able to make calls through satellite. This comes as a step further to what is currently available on the market. The video below gives you a clearer view of what’s inside the Huawei Mate 60 Pro.
