Huawei is tipped to increase its high-end HiSilicon Kirin chipsets lineup and launch Kirin 9010 as next-generation system-on-chip (SoC). The brand new chip is purported to be primarily based on an all-new structure primarily based on 3-nanometre (3nm) course of know-how. This appears to be a big improve over the present HiSilicon Kirin 9000 and Kirin 9000E SoCs which are primarily based on the 5nm course of. Opponents together with Qualcomm and Samsung have additionally used the identical MOSFET know-how node on their current flagship SoCs for cell gadgets.
A tipster, with username @RODENT950, tweeted that Huawei’s next-gen chipset Kirin 9010 relies on 3nm course of. There’s, nevertheless, no official affirmation to the reported particulars.
The main points in regards to the silicon comes at a time when Huawei is dealing with challenges in retaining its chipset enterprise globally — as a consequence of US sanctions and lack of provide. A current report by Counterpoint showed that the Chinese language firm did not obtain any progress within the final quarter and managed to retain its 12 p.c share within the worldwide smartphone chipset market.

Having mentioned that, the most recent hearsay across the HiSilicon Kirin 9010 SoC means that Huawei could have one final weapon to tackle Qualcomm’s Snapdragon and Samsung’s Exynos chips. The transfer to 3nm course of seems fairly aggressive and important — contemplating the current arrival of 5nm chips.
Huawei final 12 months brought HiSilicon Kirin 9000 as its final flagship SoC. It debuted on the corporate’s Mate 40 Pro and Mate 40 Pro+ smartphones in October, whereas the Kirin 9000E featured on the Mate 40.
Devices 360 has reached out to Huawei for a touch upon the event of Kirin 9010 SoC. This report can be up to date when the corporate responds.
