In the smartphone industry, few are the manufacturers that can afford produce your own hardware than hardware to your products. Beside Samsung and Apple, Huawei is one of these with HiSilicon Kirin. While the current high-end manufacturer uses the series Kirin 990, its new mid-range is powered by Kirin 810. It seems that the latter will soon have a successor, and it will come under the name of Kirin 820 5G. A recent leak has revealed some promising details of the new chip.
Some key details about the Kirin 820 5G
On March 30, Honor will make the official presentation of its first smartphone of 2020, that is, the Honor 30S. This will be the first phone with the Kirin 820 processor to appear on the market, and will be aimed at the premium mid-range segment. In addition, it would be the second chipset with a 5G modem from Huawei. The first was the Kirin 990 5G for the most premium phones.
According to reports, The Kirin 820 is manufactured using the 7nm TSMC process. In addition, it integrates a Cortex A77 core-based CPU, a GPU based on the Mali G77 and the DaVinci NPU developed by Huawei. his ISP (image processing engine for photos) also be empowered. Therefore, compared to the previous generation Kirin 810, improvement is very significant.
The information does not reveal the CPU layout, so we don't know how many cores it has. Nevertheless, seems to be more powerful than the Snapdragon 765G, whose Kryo 475 cores are based on Cortex-A76. It could also outperform the MediaTek Dimensity 1000L which also has A77 cores and Mali G77 GPU.
Recently, Xiong Junmin, vice president of Honor's business department, said that Honor and Huawei share the same 5G technology and have the world's leading R&D capabilities. In addition, I listed 4 main evaluation items: 5G anti interference, 5G energy efficiency, 5G search capability and 5G dual card experience. This was a clear clue that The Kirin 820 will outperform the competition in all four aspects.
Last year, the Kirin 810 broke into the premium mid-range mobile chip market. Considering that the Kirin 810 uses 7nm, Cortex A76 performance cores and other configurations, the Kirin 820 is expected to further improve CPU, GPU, NPU performance. We will wait for the presentation date of the Honor 30S to learn more about the chipset.
