So after the legal issues with Huawei in the US/China matter is sort of resolved, the company is now concentrating on their upcoming flagship smartphone. For a flagship smartphone they need a flagship processor, and for past couple of years Huawei is relying on their in-house Kirin processors. These chipsets are improved a lot now and gives fairly decent competition to Qualcomm and Exynos. While the Mate 30 series is said to be launching by late September, it’s new Kirin chipset will be official before the smartphone.
Huawei teased a new Kirin processor on their social media handles today. This new processor is going to be announced on September 6th, at IFA Berlin event. This is supposed to be Kirin 990 chipset powering Mate 30 series first. In the teaser video we only got to know that this processor will support 5G connectivity. But does 5G modem will be in-built to the processor or the chipset with attached modem will release separately? This is still a question for all. Huawei didn’t revealed anything else in the teaser.
So that’s all the information we have as of now. We might get to see some benchmark tests of Mate 30 series with this new processor soon, so that we will get an idea about the performance of this new Kirin 990 chipset.
