Earlier today, a Weibo user (@长安数码君) discovered a new trademark application from Huawei. The trademark was said to have been a new logo designed for its Kirin chips, with the new logo having a Dragon.
In case you are not aware, Huawei’s HiSilicon designs its proprietary Kirin mobile chipsets. According to the blogger on the popular Chinese microblogging website, the trademark had been applied for in June 2020. Looking at the images shared on the Weibo post, a smiling Dragon can be seen in the logo. The dragon have some similarities with the ones depicted in traditional Chinese lores, with the inclusion of legs and wings.
The new design comes as a breath of fresh air since the original logo is just a plain red ribbon. Notably, the new dragon design carries the current ribbon logo on its chest to signify its roots. Unfortunately, we may never see this new logo design being unveiled or even announced. Trademark applications don’t always see the light of day, so we will have to wait for an official announcement.
