Huawei to Unveil Kirin 1020SoC With Superior Performance to Kirin 990

Chinese tech giant Huawei may have developed a new mobile processor that is capable of offering 50% better performance than its last SoC, the Kirin 990 and 990 5G. The new chipset which will be called the Kirin 1020 may also be codenamed ‘Baltimore’. The performance of processors is assessed on its speed and the ability to control the usage of power by the apps that are running.

Built on the 5nm Technology?

The high-end processors in use across different chipmakers are mostly built on the 7nm process technology developed by TSMC, the Taiwanese semi-conductor pioneer. Rumors now suggest that Huawei’s or HiSilicon’s Kirin 1020 will be built on the 5nm platform, which should place it a notch above the current leading processors, including the powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 865SoC.

Similarly, the architecture of the chipsets in use with the premium mobile phones in the market is based on the Cortex-A77 cores. Huawei is expected to go a step further and build the Kirin 1020 on Cortex-A78 cores, it is reported. This assumption is based on the news that the new Kirin 1020 will be better by 50%, as indicated above. Experts are of the opinion that with the same Cortex-A77 architecture such a high level of improvement in performance is not feasible. Processor companies generally claim their newer version lifts the performance by 20% to 25%. If this is indeed true, then the Chinese company may be in possession of a highly powerful processor by next year. The Huawei Mate 40 Pro smartphone is being predicted to be the first smartphone to be launched in 2020 with the Kirin 1020 processor.

Experts believe that the company may have a clear field in this department for at least a year before the others catch up. That could be speculative since one is not sure what Qualcomm is up to.

The Kirin 1020 Maybe in the Testing Stage

The reports on the development of the latest processor at Huawei’s subsidiary HiSilicon indicate that the company is currently in the process of testing the chipset. There is no official confirmation on this so far.

The year 2019 saw a race among the smartphone makers to out with each other on the camera section with triple and quad-camera setups and 48MP and 64MP sensors being the norm as primary shooters. Will the year 2020 be the year when there will be the battle for the most powerful processors? Remember Apple will be releasing its A14 chipset as well. The other major development is the push in the 5G segment, which again will demand powerful processors.
