In October, Huawei showed its flagship line of smartphones. Representatives of the Mate 20 were large frameless display with a decent resolution, protection from dust and splashes, as well as the function of fast charging. The device is also allocated a triple cameras, that create masterpieces, and even at night. Another common feature is the new Kirin 980. And though the announcement took place a few weeks ago, sources told us about the next generation of the chip.
Kirin 980 — strong eight-core nut. Two top Cortex-A76 work at a clock frequency of 2.6 GHz, two Cortex-A76 — on 1,92 GHz and the remaining four Cortex-A55 with a frequency of 1.8 GHz. The developers told about the three main differences of the new chip: performance and power efficiency, connectivity and “smart” component. Also Kirin 980 ahead of the previous range of 75 percent, and the advantage in graphics is 46 percent.
The combination allows you to give good numbers in the benchmark tests. For example, Huawei Mate Pro 20 ahead of the majority of modern Android flagships, although it is inferior to the new Apple smartphones.
New Kirin 990 will be even more impressive, according to GSMArena. The chipset will be based on 7-nanometer processor from Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC). According to insiders, a subsidiary HiSilicon has already invested about $ 28 million in research and development of new products.
990 Kirin will retain the architecture of the current flagship, including the number of transistors and power consumption. However, he will first get a modem Balong 5000, certified for 5G-speeds. Production will begin in the first quarter of 2019 — it was then waiting for more details about the new “monster”.
