Huawei’s Mate 40 series/Kirin flagship chip has been getting more and more information. Today, a source told @Rodent950 that Kirin 1000 will be officially launched on September 5.
Kirin’s new 5nm chip is said to cost between Apple’s A14 and Apple’s ARM CPU, and the size is also between the latter two. Kirin’s new chip is expected to use the ARM Cortex-A78 architecture to accommodate 171.3 million transistors per square millimeter, increasing performance by 50 percent over kirin 990.
In addition to the new iPhone, the other big event in September was Huawei’s Mate40 series, which is traditionally preceded by the announcement of the next generation of its flagship processor.
As for the most critical production capacity problem at present, Mate40 is rumored to have two versions. Kirin 1000 processors will be used in China, while other chips will be used in overseas markets, so as to guarantee the satisfaction of supply.
