Last year, Huawei announced the Kirin 990 5G chipset in September. The company has used the chipset to power many of its flagship phones such as Huawei Mate 30 series, Huawei P40 series, Honor 30 series, and more. Rumors have it that the upcoming Huawei Mate 40 will be driven by the all-new Kirin 1000 chipset. A reliable tipster from China has claimed that the Kirin 1000 5G will break cover on Sept. 5.
The Sept. 5 date that the leakster has claimed coincides with the upcoming IFA 2020 tech trade show that will be held between Sept. 3 and Sept. 5. Hence, it appears that the Chinese manufacturer will possibly unleash the Kirin 1000 5G chipset at the IFA 2020 event.
The Kirin 1000 will be Huawei’s weapon to rival with upcoming chipsets from rival brands such as A4 chip from Apple, Qualcomm’s next chipset that could be called Snapdragon 875, and the Samsung’s forthcoming flagship chip. The leak by the tipster suggests that Huawei will produce 15 million units of the Kirin 1000 SoC.
It was reported in June that the Huawei Mate 40 series debuting in October could be the first Kirin 1000 powered chipset. The Kirin 1000 is expected to debut as the world’s first 5nm chipset for mobile devices. The leakster had previously claimed that the SoC is manufactured by TSMC.
Rumors are rife that the 5G chipset is equipped with ARM Cortex-A78 CPU cores. The chip area of the Kirin 1000 is said to 113.31 sq. mm and is said to have 171.3 million transistors per mm.
Coming back to the Mate 40 series, rumors have it that the Mate 40 series may not be equipped with Kirin chipset outside China. It is being said that the Mate 40 models in global markets may feature MediaTek’s flagship chipset.
