While the smartphone market has been struggling in the past few years, 2024 is looking up in terms of a resurgence in shipments for the year.

That’s good news considering mobile handset manufacturers have been struggling as well with a retracting market and a declining replacement sector.

Huawei at one point made it to the No. 1 position in the smartphone shipment sector but after getting slapped with export restrictions by the U.S. and other nations, the company has been focused more on expanding its domestic Chinese market than the global scale. While its phones are still available worldwide, it is a continued struggle given its lack of access to advanced chips.

Huawei is working on building its own advanced semiconductors but in the meantime is working with domestic vendors for its sourced chips.

Take for instance the Huawei Mate 60 Pro+, which features fabless Chinese chipmaker HiSilicon’s Kirin 9000S octa-core processor and multichip memory 16 GB mobile LPDDR5X SDRAM from SK Hynix. It also includes image sensors and camera subsystems from Chinese-based O-film.

The following is a partial deep dive into the Huawei Mate 60 Pro+ conducted by TechInsights.
