As spotted by GSMArena, a noted tipster posted a photo of the box of Huawei's notebook, revealing some of its key specifications. As per the leaked image, the laptop will be powered by the Kirin 990 chipset with 8GB RAM, 512GB SSD and a 14-inch display.

A PC powered by Huawei's HiSilicon-designed ARM CPU

Last month some details and photos of a desktop PC surfaced on Weibo, which is reportedly is developed to be sold to the government and corporations, and will be made available commercially at a later stage. 

The leaked images revealed that the PC is powered by an ARM chip, the Kunpeng 920 (D920S10). It is developed by HiSilicon and fabbed by TSMC on a 7nm process. The processors used in the MateStation will have four or eight cores clocked at 2.6 GHz.

There is no official announcement from the company on this yet, which means the products will be most likely be released in the Chinese market before releasing them in global markets.

Apple MacBook Pro with M1 chip

Apple did it before Huawei

Huawei working on its own chip for its PCs is a step towards lessening its reliance on the western market for components. But Huawei is not the first company to come up with its own chips for laptops and PCs. Recently, Apple also launched its first MacBook series and Mac Mini with its own M1 processor and is receiving rave reviews around the world. 

However, unlike Apple, Huawei seems to be using standard components in its computers. Apple has integrated components like CPU, GPU, unified memory architecture (RAM), Neural Engine, Secure Enclave, SSD controller, image signal processor and more in the M1 chips to boost efficiency.
