With Huawei's issues with the US government and its ability to sell smartphones outside of China, the company is forced to look for other revenue streams to compensate for the lost opportunities. So the latest rumor coming from South Korea is that the company is setting up a research center in the country with some new recruits coming from Nvidia.
It's important to note that these are not mainstream GPUs we are talking about here. It's about server-grade GPUs used for cloud computing and AI - a market which Nvidia is currently dominating. According to industry insiders, the tech giant has been developing its own GPU chip since 2012 and will present it to the world when the time is right.
It's also possible that the Huawei is working on a GPU to satisfy its own needs as it's currently running some cloud computing services.

Most info in general is right - your focusing on the slight chip on a brick on a giant mansion
