Source: Huawei to debut 5nm Kirin 1000 on Mate 40 series

Ricky, 30 September 2019

The latest report from Huawei Central cites industry sources about Huawei’s next-generation Kirin processor. Supposedly called the Kirin 1000, it will be Huawei’s first chipset built on the 5nm process and said to launch in the second half of 2020.

The source says Huawei has begun trial production of the chipset and the Kirin 1000 would use A77 architecture cores (the 990 uses A76). We can expect the Kirin 1000 to be even faster while consuming even less battery life. Like the 990, we can expect the Kirin 1000 to be configured with 5G radios built in.

Just as the Mate 30 series debuted the Kirin 990, the Kirin 1000 will apparently debut with the Huawei Mate 40 series. It is said to feature Huawei’s Da Vinci NPU’s next-level artificial intelligence.

The Mate 30 was only announced in September so there is still a good year or so before we may hear about its successor.
