The Kirin 990 was recently introduced, but rumors about Huawei's next-generation System on Chip (SoC) have started to circulate on the Web.
The company may also launch the Kirin 820 focused on intermediate devices.
According to the latest rumors released on some Chinese sites, the Kirin 1020, which is codenamed “Baltimore,” will represent a significant performance update on the Kirin 990. If the rumors are correct, it will perform 50% better than the Kirin 990.
From Kirin 980 to Kirin 990, Kirin 990 introduced improvements primarily in energy efficiency and 5G connectivity, but thanks to the 5nm manufacturing process and ARM Cortex-A78 cores, the Kirin 1020 appears to perform much better.
Days ago reports came that Kirin 1020 would come with Cortex-A77 cores and not Cortex-A78 as reported in the latest rumors, which is a bit odd.
For comparison, the Kirin 990 uses Cortex-A76 cores, and MediaTek's Dimensity 1000 relies on the new Cortex-A77 cores as well as the upcoming Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 chip. The Huawei Mate 40 Pro is expected to ship later. next year with the most powerful and energy efficient SoC on the market.
In addition to the Kirin 1020, Huawei is also apparently working on a new intermediate device chip, the Kirin 820. This 7nm process chip should also come with 5G connectivity.
As new chips are announced by Huawei normally in September, a lot can still happen there. Again it is good to reinforce that the information mentioned in this post has not yet been confirmed by the Chinese company.
