The latest chip, Huawei Kirin 990, will focus on 5G!

Huawei finally confirmed the existence of its newest chip, Kirin 990. Not only that, but this Chinese technology company also revealed the chip will focus on 5G again.

Quoting SlashGears, Monday (8/26/2019), previously, Huawei already has its own 5G chip called Balong 5000. Chip revealed through teardown and testing is not as efficient as space and energy carried out by Qualcomm.

Plus, Balong 5000 exists as a separate chip from Kirin 980. It is likely that it was intended to be sold and licensed separately to equipment makers given more flexibility.

Although Balloon 5000 is good enough for the modem market, the chip seems to have many shortcomings on mobile phones. This raises the question of whether Kirin 990, which will be announced at IFA 2019 on September 6, will improve the situation.

Huawei’s 5G modem chip can finally be integrated into the system-on-chip (SoC), thereby reducing the required space and power. As a result, efficiency and performance can be improved.

Besides 5G, Kirin 990 was also revealed to be made using the 7nm Extreme Ultraviolet Lithography (EUV) process from TSMC. In addition, Kirin 990 will also support 4K 60fps video recording.
