Huawei is going to be making some announcements later this month at the IDA electronics show that is due on the 21st of August. It is expected that the company is going to announce the highly anticipated 7nm Based Kirin 980 chip that will power the smartphones that are coming out next year. The 7nm Based Kirin 980 will power the upcoming 30 series smartphones that are going to be top of the line devices.
The Kirin 980 chip comes with four Cortex A76 cores and four Cortex A55 cores. It is also expected to feature a Mali graphics part that will take care of the visuals and provide the power needed to run graphics intensive apps like games. The Kirin 980 has already been teased and you can check out the teaser below:
The new chip is going to be based on the 7nm process which means that it will be more powerful than the previous generation chips but it will also consume less power. This means that even with the same battery, the smartphones that are powered by these chips will have a longer battery time. Having that said, this should be enough to power 5G technology and when that comes into the mainstream Huawei will have one of the first devices that support this new technology.
With 5G support, the Huawei phones coming out next year will be able to compete with other flagship devices like the Samsung Galaxy S10 and the iPhone that is going to come out next year. Huawei has come a long way and the upcoming Kirin 980 chip is going to be a major upgrade compared to the previous generation models.
There is little that we know in terms of the specifications of the upcoming chip but I am sure that we will be able to learn more at the even by the end of the month. If that is something that you are interested in then stay tuned for further information and updates regarding the matter.
It should be interesting to see what kind of performance gains the Kirin 980 chip will be able to offer as compared to what we currently have on the market.
