Kirin 1020, the processor with 5G twice as powerful as the Kirin 970

The latest rumours leaked through the Chinese press show Huawei's plans to outperform Qualcomm in the semiconductor market. The result would be SoC Kirin 1020 which would double the performance of Huawei Kirin 970. For the time being, it has only transpired that the chip would integrate 5G connectivity and be manufactured in a 7 nanometer process.

The launch of the Kirin 970 processor in models such as the Huawei Mate 10 was an important movement of the brand. A leap in performance over previous chips of the brand. However, the Chinese's advances are always behind one of the leading players in this market, Qualcomm. In fact, the Kirin 970 is shown in the chips line as the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835, but not against the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845, currently one of the most powerful in the market.

First details about the Huawei Kirin 1020

We could say with this that Huawei is one step behind the competition. Currently, the company is in the process of manufacturing the Huawei Kirin 980. However, the juicy news comes from China, region from which it transcends that the manufacturer is focused on research and development of the Huawei Kirin 1020.

Rumor has it that this would be the SoC that Huawei could compete with Qualcomm on a one-to-one basis. The first numbers that have transcended and that speak of the performance of es te chip place it as twice as powerful as the current Kirin 970. As a guideline, AnTuTu places it in the ranking with a score close to 200,000 points.

However, it does not seem that this processor will see the light in the short term since there is a determinant data that indicates it. Huawei seems willing to launch it to the market when 5G networks are a reality and there is a need for smartphones compatible with 5G.

If Huawei does not change its policy of launching processors, this Kirin 1020 would not come to see until September, but are already beginning to rumor their changes from the current Kirin 990. Without a doubt, what interests us most is the increase in power, which according to one of the main Slashleaks filterers, would be 50% over that of Kirin 990, a considerably large increase. To give you an idea, the power increase of the Snapdragon 865 compared to the 855 is less than 25%.

Thus, it seems that Kirin 1020 will see the light throughout 2019, so Kirin 980 would be a preliminary step. Qualcomm's and Samsung's progress will now have to be checked. Huawei will use the 7 nanometre manufacturing process to improve the efficiency and performance of SoC, but as we have already indicated, we will have to wait to know the circumstances surrounding the launch of the new Huawei chip, as well as what model would be used to equip it.
