Rumors around Huawei’s next high-end processor are already circulating. It seems that the next SoC will be known as Kirin 1020 and will have a performance increase of 50% vs. Kirin 990 Equipping Mate 30 Pro.
If these If these values are confirmed, we will see a surprising increase in performance across generations. As a comparison, the new Snapdragon 865 is just 20% more powerful than its predecessor.
What is known of the new Kirin 1020
- 50% more powerful than Kirin 990
- Developed in 5 nanometer lithography
- Cortex cores The 77
- Support to 5G
This performance increase will be due to the use of the new Cortex-A cores 77, which we can also find at Snapdragon 865. In addition, Huawei will use 5-nanometer lithography against Kirin’s 7-nanometer 990.
The smaller the lithography process, the greater the processor power and efficiency. This is because more transistors will be included inside the processor.
Another interesting data is the exclusive support for 5G networks. This means that all smartphones that Huawei will launch with this processor will be ready for new mobile networks, but equally capable of 4G networks.
Huawei is always behind Qualcomm when it comes to mobile phones. to their processors. To get a sense, Kirin 1020 will be Snapdragon’s rival 865, however, Huawei’s SoC will only hit the market in October with the new Mate.
This means that if Huawei does not change this policy, This incredible performance gain could be in vain. By the time he hits the market, many may have opted for another Snapdragon device 865.
Huawei mid-range will also support 5G
The same source gives us a little more insight into the future Kirin 820. This new SoC will be targeted at Huawei intermediate devices and will support 5G networks.
It is also said that the first device to receive it will be the Huawei Nova 7 or 10 X. Templates that are sure to be introduced only next year.
