Qualcomm was the first company to announce a processor with access to 5G connectivity, Samsung the first to announce a chip with integrated 5G connectivity, and Huawei was the first company to put a 5G-integrated chip on the market. And new rumors indicate that the Huawei Mate 40 Series would have a 5nm chip with integrated 5G connectivity.
Recall that yesterday Apple announced the iPad Air (2020) with the new A14 Bionic processor created with 5nm process technology. The first in the world. This tablet is already on sale for a base price of US $ 600 and is the first device in the world with a 5nm processor. Now Huawei I would go for the next feat and integrate a 5G modem.
Detalles del Huawei Kirin 9000
The exact name of the processor with 5nm and 5G connectivity from Huawei is still uncertain. There are those who say that it will be called Kirin 1000 and those who say that its name will actually be Kirin 9000. Whichever turns out to be the right choice all the rumors seem to agree that there will be a Kirin 1000E or Kirin 9000E chip in the standard Huawei Mate 40.
The Mate 40 Pro and Mate 40 Pro + or Mate 40 Ultra will have the privilege of having the most powerful and latest Kirin processor that the Chinese manufacturer puts on the market until further notice. And it may even have the privilege of outperforming the A14 Bionic in performance, as it may not be as well optimized as the Apple chip.
The place WinFuture declares having contacted sources close to Huawei’s production circuit who reveal that the Mate 40 Series would have a 5nm chip with 5G connectivity and that the smartphones that make up said series will be officially presented at an event via streaming in the middle of October.
But what about its availability? The reputed leaker Evan Blass opined that we would most likely have to wait until 2021 to see the Mate 40 Series distributed in the West. But the official account of Twitter from Huawei UK published that the next generation of the Huawei Mate would be arriving very soon.
It is difficult to know if Huawei UK is referring to the launch event that is rumored to take place in mid-October and would be accompanied by an early launch in the Chinese market for later distribution in Europe. But “soon” seems to suggest an international announcement.
