Huawei Mate 60 Pro Teardown Reveals Surge In Local Component Prices

A recent teardown of the Huawei Mate 60 Pro has revealed a significant increase in the proportion of domestically produced components used in the device. According to foreign media reports, the value of Chinese-made parts in the Huawei Mate 60 Pro now accounts for 47% of the total, an 18% increase compared to the Mate 40 Pro from three years ago. This increase in the value of components is considered more meaningful than just the percentage of parts used.

The total cost of components for the Mate 60 Pro is approximately 3100 yuan (about 422 USD), with the value of the Chinese-made components estimated at around 198 USD. This represents a nearly 90% increase from the Mate 40 Pro. A significant contributor to this increase is BOE Technology Group Co., Ltd., a major display panel manufacturer. Huawei has replaced screens from South Korean manufacturers with domestically produced ones and has also sourced touchscreen components from Chinese suppliers.

The teardown also revealed that the Mate 60 Pro uses a chip designed by HiSilicon and manufactured by Semiconductor Manufacturing International Corporation (SMIC).

This development in the Huawei Mate 60 Pro highlights the rapid advancement of China’s technology sector. Previously, it was believed that China’s independent technology would lag behind other countries by seven years. However, the progress made within just five years has been remarkable, as demonstrated by the Mate 60 Pro.

This shift towards greater use of domestic components in high-end devices like the Huawei Mate 60 Pro not only showcases the growing capabilities of Chinese technology but also reflects a broader trend in the global tech industry towards more localized supply chains and manufacturing.
