    LOL, Huawei had been stockpiling ... should last them another year.

    Anyway, my Mate 20 Pro with Kirin 820 (7nm) is pretty good. I can see Huawei using this SoC for many future products. If they have been stockpiling all their current SoCs, I can't see them being uncompetitive in the smartphone market.

Most people that buy flagships play only candy crush, browse the internet and watch YouTube. If you want to have mass market appeal the SoC doesn't really mean that much.

          Doesn't matter much unless their GPU's finally catch up, gaming is important for allot of people buying top-of-the-range flagships. I didn't realise I'd have issues with emulation and other 3rd party apps that require access to the GPU's drivers in order for the application to run smoothly. Mate 20 Pro will be my last Huawei, probably

              Exciting chipset that pushes the boundary of performance. Let's see what in-house Samsung's department Exynos can do with its old chipset architecture.

                Sales are pretty much unaffected too - going up.

                  Anonymous, 24 May 2020Haha, too fun. If they didn't surpass SD855+ in the 2019, a... moreThey surpassed it with the 9905g, even the gpu perf was better. Though 865 came like 4 months later and beat them by a lot.

                    Anonymous, 24 May 2020Is there gonna be a SD865 PLUS Version this year? Coz 5nm ... moreIt happens every other year. Sd845 and k980, sd 820 and k960. Usually qualcomms gpus would be still a bit more powerful, butcan catch up with the new cortex cores until a few months later when the flagships witj the latest snapdragon launches.

                        The first 5nm mobile chip... How far we've come.

                        Look forward to see how efficient it is.

                          Great , hope they fix the image processing in the mate 40 like mate 30 compared to p30

                              Huawei should launch all phones with kirin 1020 including midrange , forgetting profit they can take market share of 50 percent. This will force all companies to work with huawei.

                                  Do they not know that people always root for the underdog?

                                    Coz 5nm combined with cortex A78 might give it an all time Benchmark lead.
